Skipping dialogue (again)
« on: February 20, 2003, 09:55:21 PM »

Hi..

I'm not sure this can be solved, or at least it may not be an engine related issue.

When I click the mouse to skip ahead as the character speaks, I still get the silent 'pauses' between the sentences. If I just let he speak, the pauses seem alright, as her monologue would probably pause at those times. But when I click my mouse to skip to the next sentence, what I'm really interested in, is what she has to say next, not the pause before what she'll say next. I haven't explored the scripts, so I'm not sure it has anything to do with the engine itself.

That's right. The Actor.Talk() method can be interrupted by clicking, but the delays are achieved by a Sleep() command, which cannot be interupted that way. Maybe I should have used something like actor.Talk("", "", 500) to make the delays (say nothing for 500 milliseconds). Hmmmm...
