How do I skip past dialogue?

posted by bekele on - last edited - Viewed by 2.9K users
This is kind of a dumb question, but what key can I press to jump past dialogue I've already listened to? I've tried seemingly every key on the keyboard, but nothing seems to work. Help would be appreciated, thanks much!

  • I think right-clicking might do it, but I'm not sure about that. That's how it's done in Sam and Max, but I don't remember how it's done in TOMI (been nearly a month since I've played it).
  • Yeah, right clicking will do it.

    It is, but I think he is looking for a keyboard solution. Ron Gilbert would have made it the classic ".", because it ends a sentence.
  • The dot would be the most natural way, like in the old days. I don't understand why they don't use it at TTG.
  • I prefer the mouse click to skip sentence instead of '.' key. I makes sense but clicking the mouse during dialog feels more natural. Also, I just realised the SMI: SE does not support single sentences skipping ('.' key does nothing) You can only skip full cutscenes or full dialogs (in the SE mode, not the Classic)
  • can't you press backspace in SMI:SE?

    I disagree, personally. I've always found right click to be the most natural, and it's what's used in the majority of games I play on PC. What other games use the period key to skip dialogue?

    Backspace skips entire dialogs or cutscenes. Doesn't work with single sentences. :(

    Sam and Max Hit the Road
    Day of the Tentacle
    Monkey Island 1,2

    basically all LucasArts adventure games.

    But I agree, right click makes a lot more sense.

    I sort of meant the areaoutside of the LucasArts bubble. Which, contrary to the opinion of a lot of Monkey Island fans, actually does include a lot of games. In fact, "not LucasArts" covers the majority of adventures.
