Currently both of these categories are incomplete (SW cutscenes are definitely missing, and not every page contains a relevant video file), and many of the pages also are poorly formatted or have incorrect information.
I feel that there’s also a duplication issue here – the transcript pages are transcripts for cutscenes, but the cutscene pages also contain transcripts.
I would like to propose the following:
We merge these two categories into one consistent Cutscenes category
The new Cutscenes category is given a consistent format, with each page containing a video of the cutscene and a transcript of the cutscene
Cutscene pages should also be categorized by game (e.g. “Abe's Oddysee Cutscenes”, “Stranger's Wrath Cutscenes” etc.)
Cutscenes for each game should have a Next/Previous navigation system similar to how Level pages are organized.
Great, I’ll start rounding up all the existing pages and start renaming and recategorizing them to be consistent and fit with the new system – let me know when the infobox is ready and we can start adding it to them.
I think we should also change the naming convention of these pages and keep them as close as possible to the original cutscene names (which I can't all remember from the top of my head, but as far as I remember they all have unique names). Edit: I renamed all Oddysee cutscenes, will get to Exoddus, Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath eventually.
Lastly, while editing, please remove the transcript category from pages all together since we're replacing that category entirely with the cutscenes category.
I agree with giving them consistent names. I think the naming convention should be “Unique name (Game Cutscene)”, e.g. “Captured By Outlaws (Stranger's Wrath Cutscene)”. This would prevent any confusion as to what game each cutscene is from.
All cutscene pages have been tagged with Cutscenes and one of the following:
The page summary, category and infobox should all provide enough clarity about what game each cutscene is for. I'd prefer to keep page titles as short as possible and only add clarification when absolutely required.
For Abe's Oddysee the "Oddworld Intro" and "Credits" are missing but neither of those really need a transcript.
I’ve removed the Transcripts category from all pages except the pages made to list all the Transcripts for each game, and I’ve marked those for deletion since the Cutscene tags replace their function.
I can’t find an online reference for the cutscene names, so I’ll have to fire up the games themselves to get an accurate list (I’m pretty sure you can get the cutscene player using a cheat in every game, and if not I probably have complete save files anyway).
I mean that the spelling mistake is in the game itself, not a spelling error on my part. The Exoddus cutscenes refer to Dripik as Dripek, which may have been an earlier name for the character and never fixed in the cutscene list?
