MOHAWK: RIVEN: Faster page turning

Reported by: dafioram Owned by: bgK
Priority: low Component: Engine: Mohawk
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Riven

Description

It would be nice if the page turned as fast as I clicked. Right now it takes about 25secs to get to the page of catherines book where she has the code and about 47 secs to get through that entire book by clicking next page the entire time.

Its really nice turning the pages with the keyboard.

IMHO, the current 1 second per page is a pretty comfortable speed, especially if you're just holding a single key (or the mouse button) in a depressed state until you reach the desired page... no clicking required.

Keyboard navigation is perfect for this scenario.

Riven is full of complex puzzles that have simple solutions. When a puzzle is first encountered its details must be worked out and it takes time to figure out, but once you know the mechanics the solutions is quick. The page turning deviates from this and greatly changes the pacing and goes against what riven is.

Riven desires its puzzles to be hard because of their complexity not their tediousness.

This is now implemented in 83b27d263e1433a. The previous behavior can still be used by holding the mouse button / keyboard arrow.
