I just came across this video and it came as a complete surprise to me:
It's great to see that the 2007 version does indeed have in-engine cutscene files. Did anyone ever work on them to try and bring real-time cutscenes to the game like how they extracted other stuff from the Gamecube and Wii versions and brought them to PC? That would be simply amazing because for the first time ever people won't have to download several GB's of video files that don't even show costumes and mods.
I think, at least, Its possible. The EVD files are responsible for Real Time Cutscenes. I have observed, but never edited, the EVD files contains FCV and MDT files. The FCV files are Responsible for the Camera Movement. the MDT files is what handles the Text in game, Such as QTE,(HOOK SHOT, CROUCH, HIDE, CLIMB), but here I assumed it was Subtitles for them. After Manually Extracting the MDT from the EVD I found that it contains information but to me it Gibberish to me...
I do not know what "OP-17LK" or whatever number means. Its even Possible I made a mistake Extracting it. Besides the FCV for the Camera and the MDT which might means something important there are no BIN, TPL,LIT or any other information stored in the EVD.
If your Interested in the EVD format in the 2007ed. I can share my notes.
That's some really good findings. I wonder why nobody worked on this for 7 years until the UHD edition came out. Maybe if somebody extracts the EVD files from another version of the game, like the Gamecube/Wii versions, then it might give them some clue as to what the MDT files actually contain and also if there are any other files that the PC port is missing in the EVD. Unfortunately I'm not a technical person at all. LOL. I really wish I could somehow bring real-time cutscenes to this port because I think that's the major thing that it's lacking right now, aside from ambient and dynamic lighting effects from the Gamecube/Wii versions. If somebody managed to do that even now, I'm sure it will be considered a huge breakthrough and will become big news on the internet.

brunoytbr99: I was researching some cool mods and one of them I wanted the most was a mod to make everything random on re4 but it doesn't have any, seriously that someone didn't think to do it yet it's a shame it's a very cool mod and it would take work to do I believe
