=== Description ===
This mod allows you to rewatch most of cutscenes from TVs in Saints Row: The Third, IV, and Gat out of Hell.

Instructions:

In SRIV, go near a TV of any of the following places:
  • Kinzie's Warehouse (Go to a room with TV trio)
  • Saints HQ in The Saints Flow (need a Sandbox+-like mod)
  • 3 Count Crib (need DLC and a Sandbox+-like mod)

2. When a message is displayed, push Taunt, Compliment, Crouch, or Reload key to select a cutscene, then push USE key to watch.

=== Q&A ===
Q: Can't you just use Sandbox+ mods to watch cutscenes?
A: Yes I know about that, but this mod should be easier to control.

Q: Why TV?
A: A Saints Row 2 throwback.

Q: Some cutscenes have a star (*) before the name, and they play the mission intro before the selected scene. Why?
A: The Saints Row games has 2 different kind of cutscenes. One of them is self-contained and easily playable.
The other is called "zscene" or "CTE" which depends on mission-specific NPCs or other data to work.
These ones are marked with a star (*) in this mod.
The zscene/CTEs are not playable outside of missions intended by developers, therefore this mod has to load the mission first, which inevitably causes the mission intro to be played before the selected cutscene is played.

Q: QTEs are missing. Why?
A: QTEs are not really cutscenes but uses a system named "SAM".
Playing these things require very specific setup within a mission and is outside of the scope of this mod.

Q: [SRIV] Watching the first intro or final mission endings make my character's footsteps metalic!
A: It's a known issue but I don't know how to revert footsteps from a Lua script.
Saving your game then reloading your save should revert your footsteps.

Q: [SRIV] Watching endings also caps the framerate to 30FPS!
A: This is Volition's oversight and I cannot do anything with it.
To uncap the framerate, you must quit and relaunch the game,
so make sure you think twice before watching the endings.

Q: Why the mission complete screen always says "DEATH AT SMILING JACKS"?
A: This is because we're playing a cutscene in freeroam. "DEATH AT SMILING JACKS" is a placeholder mission name used when the game is not sure about what title should be displayed.

Q: [SRTT] I can't find a TV in Angel's Gym!
A: Try going to the garage and explore the gym from there.
