The Battle of Pellenor Fields Special Feature Can't Post

I remember seeing a special feature about when they were programming the battle of Pellenor Fields. They were saying they were having a hard time doing it because one side would want to retreat and they were having issues getting them to battle to the death. I havent been able to find it again so I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can find that video or if I'm remembering it wrong/making it up. Anyone have any ideas?

I remember this as one of the extras [In reply to] Can't Post

on the DVD, but I couldn't tell you which one. I think there's one about the development of MASSIVE and it's likely that one.

Thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

I watched one about Massive but it wasnt it, or I missed it. I'm glad I'm not just imagining that I saw it. I'll have to search through the extras again and see if I can find it. It's been quite a while since I saw that one but its one I always found interesting.

It was about Massive [In reply to] Can't Post

In the extras they said that when they used massive to make a battle scene 2 agents were facing the wrong direction and started running away in the background.

From memory, [In reply to] Can't Post

didn't one of the guys on the Massive feature joke that the guys weren't running away - they were running around the world to attack from behind? Laugh

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

are you checking the extras for the TEs, too? [In reply to] Can't Post

It might be tempting to assume it was an EE extra but I think we forget about the TE extras and it could have been in there.

I have a vague memory of it, as well. So I don't think you're imagining it. But for some reason, I didn't remember it as a ROTK extra. So don't assume it was for ROTK, either.

I believe it was from TT [In reply to] Can't Post

When they were using Massive to program the Uruks at Helm's Deep, they found that some of the fighters were going the wrong way. At first, they thought, "whoa-these guys are thinking for themselves!"
I think it's on the EE.
Hope this helps.

Found it [In reply to] Can't Post

I found it. Its on the Two Towers Extended Edition. Its in the Weta Visual Effects feature. It was about some of the first tests of MASSIVE and there were a few people that were running away because they had nobody in their vision. They were running away because thats the way they were facing when they went to "look" for other combatants. Thanks for the help everyone!
