#7512 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Fast Foward key

Reported by: SF/ndogg Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:


I would really like to see something like a "Fast
Forward" key that speeds up the game 2x (or 3x or
whatever, perhaps set by an option) so that a user
can get through a long, tedious scene quickly.

I just get frustrated by all these characters walking
to the rescue rather than running. If I had to
rescue someone, you can bet that I'd be running.

For which game?

Most games under ScummVM already offer fast modes via 'Ctrl
f' and/or 'Ctrl g'.

As Kirben mentioned, some of the games supported by ScummVM already have
such a feature. Others simply allow you to reduce the time text appears on the
screen, or allow you to skip over text or cutscenes (in SCUMM games, use "." and
ESC for this).

But in general, hacking something like this in will break game synchronization in
bad ways (the above mentioned hacks sometimes do that, too), so it's not
