    Hey does anyone know how to skip all actions of a cinematic when a button is pressed? Escape just cancels the current action, i'd like escape or another button to cancle the whole cinematic like is done in the blizzard campaign maps (I'm unsure of how to access them as when I go into the campaigns folder they're not there.) + rep for help :)

    whats wrong with using ESC

    just make a trigger
    • cinematic ESC
      • Events
        • Player - Player 1 (Red) skips a cinematic sequence
        • Player - Player 2 (Blue) skips a cinematic sequence
        • Player - Player 3 (Teal) skips a cinematic sequence
        • and so on .........
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Cinematic - Turn cinematic mode Off for (Player group((Triggering player)))
    • and what ever els you wana change back to normal

    millzy is right.

    The only other keys Warcraft III can detect are the arrow keys.
    You can detect other key presses via some spell hotkey hacks, though those aren't available in cinematic mode.

    Just stick with escape.

    @Markos2510 If your campaign is really good, players will play it more than once. The second time they play it, though, they'll already know the story, which is the whole point of having a cinematic, therefore watching it again would be a waste of their time.
