Hi scripters, hope you are all going well!


Let's get on topic : I've looked for a way to skip a cutscene, but can't find any on RPG Maker MV. The intro of my game (Right after selecting "new game") takes about 2 minutes and is fun to watch, but long.


So is there a way to make a cutscene skippable? Like by pressing a certain button? 


I'm sure many could benefit from this pluggin. Being able to skip a cutscene is usefull. If a boss is really hard and the player has to restart often, he will get bored to watch the cutscene again and again.


Searching the web, I found this : Cutscene skip make any scene skippable and this : Divisionheaven. They were made for RPG Maker Ace and seems to be doing what I want.


Needs : 


- When specific button is pressed, a semi-transparent screen appears asking if the user want to skip the scene

- Audio fade in


- Events are positioned as they should be if the scene was not skipped


- Variables and switches are set as they would be if the scene was not skipped


- Pluggin commands to tell the game when the scene start and when it ends

I know this is not an easy task, but it would make a great plugin! 


Thanks for your time!

Can't you just bring up some text saying "Would you like to watch the introduction?" Then bring up a yes and no option. If yes, let them watch it. If no, let them skip to the point where they can start playing.

That's a good idea for the introduction, thanks!


Though I still think it could be useful before boss fights and to skip a really long cutscene. Sure, you can ask before, but that would break the rythm of the game.

+1 to this! I would love to see an MV version of this plugin, or an updated version of one of the ones made for earlier versions of RPG Maker.


I have *tons* of long conversations and monologues in my game that I would love to be able to skip while I'm in development. 


If you believe you could make this plugin and want to make a few bucks, PM me. Would be happy to make it materially worth your while. :)

1) Sorry for my English of google. 2) Did you try to enter a code so that at certain moments of the video if you press X key, it will be skipped? You can warn about this (press X key on long videos) at the beginning of the game.

Before I am done with even one game, I am going to need Psychiatric assistance after doing all these sprites!
Still I am improving, Spriting not mental fortitude.
It's still early days, and I was going to keep this under wraps until development is a bit further along, but I'm just so damn proud of how robust the integrity-checking in this plugin is that I have to share it.
Do you think the new RPG Maker MZ has support for Android devices ?
