#7503 closed feature request (wontfix)

BASS: Quick jumping to next scene in BASS

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


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.
