Hi Phil, That's just it though. One of the reasons the level intros are there in the first place is to stream some audio while the level is loading in the background. Sometimes it happens very quickly, and on some systems not so quickly. However, I am having people complaining that they can't skip the intro and get into level 1 or level 2 quickly. I don't think they realise if they skip the intro the level still may have to load giving them dead silence for a couple of seconds or so while it fully loads up. So if they skip it and have nothing but silence it is their own fault for asking me to allow them to skip the intro. Basically, your having Sarah climb or decend the staircases between levels is what the level intros are doing in Mysteries of the Ancients. While Angela is reading the inscription on the wall or entering level 2 with a burning torch it is loading stuff in the background. Skip it and you may get dead silence while it loads that level. All I can do is document this fact and tell them if they don't like the length of silence buy a faster computer, because how fast the level loads really depends on their processor speed. It isn't my fault they want to exit the level intro before the level is fully loaded. If they complain about the silence I'll just have to ttell them that's what they asked for. They wanted to exit the level intro, but I can't make the level load faster than their CPU will allow. So from my opinion they have no right to complain about it.
