[Feature Request] Skip current dialog line

Recommended Posts

I quite often play with no sound so as not to disturb others in the room I'm in so subtitles are my primary way of following the dialogue. I also read the subs considerably faster than the actors say them and I find myself frustrated that I have to wait for the next line.

Most other adventure games have a skip option that will skip tp the next subtitle, so you can go through lengthy conversations relatively quickly. BA, on the other hand only has an option to skip the entire cut-scene. This forces me to either get frustrated and occasionally bored, or miss entire plot elements.

So, is there any chance that such an option may be added?

Also, a way to review previous dialogue would be appreciated.

TIA

In another thread they posted that they removed the ability because it gave allot of problems with their animations. Because most of their dialog has fair bit of animation and particals.

Yeah, I figured that there'd be animation issues with that.

As they've already discussed it and have reasons for it being so, I'll go and get back under my rock ;)
