You'd think we'd have this feature by DROD 5, but surprisingly, no, we don't.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, every official Caravel hold (sans Smitemasters Selections) has a special credits reel at the end. This gives little bits of insight about the game's creation, as well as, well, crediting the creators, and allows for compatibility with things such as character portraits. The background image and music used is also varied from hold to hold.

For some reason, we have things as complex as a world map customization feature, or things like a way to script a Sudoku puzzle, but we have nothing for making our own credits sequence?

While you can make one via video magic and the "play video" command, it's still not the same functionally as a credits sequence in DROD, as that does have a pause system, while the "play video" command doesn't have that system.

This, I feel, has been long overdue. Even if it's relegated to, say, a minor DROD 5.5 update, please make it happen. Currently, there's two things we can't do that Caravel Games can with DROD; label the holds as official Caravel holds, and an in-engine credits sequence.

Actually, the "play video" command was an one-off feature for the ending of TCB. It's functional but don't expect any fancy features, and there are even a few bugs related to it that had been stated by the devs they're not going to be fixed.

Given that scrolls work quite nicely, no, I wouldn't really expect we'd have this feature by DROD 5. We can't hard-code our own elements either.
