#7503 closed enhancement (wontfix)

BASS: Quick jumping to next scene in BASS

Reported by: SF/zinc666 Owned by: SF/olki
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sky
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Beneath a Steel Sky

Description

Apologies if this has been suggested before (I couldn't
see it listed though).

In Beneath A Steel Sky (maybe others???), I think it
would be nice if you could quickly exit one scene and
enter another by double clicking on the EXIT symbol
rather than have the character walk to the exit. This
behaviour is like that present in more recent SCUMM games.

Thanks, and keep uo the good work.

We've rejected a similar request for the older SCUMM games in the past. For
those games, it's simply not feasible, because "exits" are not somethign
special, but rather are object like any other object, just with special scripts
assigned to them that load a different room. In addition, it may not be
possible to use / reach an object at a given time. Checking for that would be
required, else the user suddenly would be able to access area he shouldn't be
able to access.
Hence for SCUMM games, retro-adding this simply is not feasible.

But I am not overly familiar with BASS; maybe it's possible there... ? Olki,
Joostp, Cyx are the main BASS guys, maybe one of them can say more.

AFAIK this is not feasible in the sky engine for pretty much
the same reasons as with SCUMM.
A script is run when you click an exit, but it might have
several conditions for allowing you to reach it.
