Diablo® III

Auto-skip cutscences & cinematics

Posts: 1,067
I am really begging for a way ( don't care how ) to auto skip the in-game cut scenes. You know where belial has a million things to say and the camera has to detach from the player to move over top of Belial, and I have to press space bar and click O.K. instead of plowing my hammer into his face, then the screen goes black for a second or two then, still over top of Belial, it fades-in and then the camera slides back over top of your character, waits a couple seconds, and then it ends the in-game cutscene. And then! you are finally able to take your first swing.
Yeah that.

Or the fight with Diablo where he talks forever and you've heard it a million times, all you wanna do is get on with killing him, but there's a cut-scene for when you meet him, and a cut-scene when you go into shadow land, and a cut-scene when you come back out of shadow land, and another cut-scene when you kill him????
Yeah that. Stop it.
Please. I really. really. really. would like a way. to ignore all of those cut-scenes. T___T
Oh loardy please. Please please please.

Every time I have to cancel through the countless camera switches and hammer on the esc/space button until I can finally start attacking, I wish 100 times more that I would no longer have to do that. And I keep imagining myself in a place where it's time to kill Belial, and the minute we enter that door we are ready, and guards are turning into serpents instantly and holy crap it feels so good and smooth!! I love it!!

Please and thank you. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Game is an epic fail. Play is sooooo slow. It takes for ever to do anything. Teleporting, exiting, Battle scenes the list goes on. Drops suck, I can go hours without collecting anything to help me along. Monsters quickly kill ya. It is so out of balance. Frankly I have had it!

I hate cuscenes. Diablo 2 fared well without them and had much more gripping story to boot. Please let us play the game without those interruptions.

Escape cancels in-game cinematics.....
Spacebar skips in game conversations.....

It pains me to see all these people bumping this thread who haven't tried hitting Escape.


Diablo fight rundown :
ESC - would u like to skip this ? - YES
10 seconds later
ESC - would u like to skip this ? - YES
10 seconds later
ESC - would u like to skip this ? - YES

not to mention the added annoyance from Diablo's voice throughout act4 stating the obvious
maybe u play the game holding spacebar whenever u blow up a portal / reach a portal ?

and that's just act4 ...
