November 2004 had some.  They are old enough to not be in a compatible format, but I had a little player ready.

When you load movies with it, you have to include the cmv extension.  So you'd type g to load, then "bigd.cmv", for instance.

What are the flashing tiles surrounding the elves in elfdeath.cmv?

That's the magical effect that goes on while they are animating trees.  Some trees march up from the bottom in the last third of the movie.

I wish dragons were powerful as the dragon in bigd.cmv still.

These are really awesome.

I recall you mentioning the humans making campfires before, but it was cool seeing it on the screen. It would be neat seeing the underground animal people camps do something similar in the future.

Also, seeing the animated trees produce logs on death made me chuckle.

These are really cool.

I especially liked the elves animating trees. It seems like a sweet concept.
I also like the uberness of the dragon.

Why doesnt DF run that fast now? :(

I was thinking more along the lines of this legendary champion, all clad in dented and dinged up steel plate, his blood-drenched axe slung over his back, a notch in the handle for every enemy that saw the swing of that blade as the last sight they ever saw, a battered shield strapped over his arm... and a fluffy, pink stuffed hippo hidden discretely in his breastplate.

Ha, I wanted elves to be able to animate trees. And necromancer elves to raise logs.

I think the undead invasions never made it to the public release.

Necromancers that can raise the undead are in the game

Oh, how far Dwarf Fortress has come.

Ooo, thanks, Toady!

EDIT:  Hmm, some of the ones I was thinking of aren't there...  I vaguely recall a bunch of seasonal ones from a bit later tracking the progress of an entire fort, showing how to set up a farm, etc...  oh well.

Does anyone have the old movies that Toady released before Dwarf Fortress itself came out?  Humancamps, the one where Toady Kills NorndarnÚrn, things like that, the ones of Toady playing the game which covered the basic 2D gameplay over the course of several seasons?

Do you know what Tolkiens, Gygax and Arneson have in common? They are all time travelers, they went to the future and played the full version of Dwarf Fortress and wrote an AAR.
