Hi Thomas,
I am the other Philip but have a comment.
As you need to close the door at the end of the level, a door closing squeak
and bang is very appropriate.
As they may be large doors a slow 3 or 4 second sound to me is acceptable.
You could still have the cut scene that should have the ability to be stopped by hitting escape but the door would hide the dead silence.

Hi Philip,
That's very true. So what would you suggest I do from a design aspect.
I mean it is true that the level intros etc are generally longer than
they need to be for a level to load, but since they are there they
might as well  be used to tie the story together. I could use
something generic instead like a big door closing or opening instead
which would be shorter, but in my opinion isn't quite as professional.
So I'm open to some suggestions here.

Hi Thomas,

If I may add my two cents to the discussion quickly, I guess that the
reason
why people were wanting this feature was because the intro is
considerably
longer than the game would ever take to load. While it might take, say, 3
to
5 seconds on an average to slow machine, the intro is 31 seconds. People
are
impatient, after all, including myself in many respects. Smile.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall
