Is pausing a cutscene possible?Follow

#1 Oct 01 2010 at 6:54 PM Rating: Good
I just started playing, and I've noticed that every time there's a cutscene, someone picks that moment to call my phone (seriously). I can't pick it up because I'll miss the cutscene. In FFXI everything was text based, so you could just stop pressing buttons until you came back, but I can't do that with these new voiced cutscenes. I saw the cancel button gives the option to skip the cutscene, but is there a way to pause it or to play it again later (like the goblin footprint in FFXI)?

As far as I know, you can't pause or replay them yet.

I don't think there is a way to pause or replay cut-scenes. I actually won't be surprised if they don't ever add the option =/.

It would be cool if they added it though. FFXIII and many other console games today have this function, there's no reason for it to not be in here as far as I can see.

Aside the fact you can't pause MMORPGs, I do however expect a replay function soon.

There's a difference between pausing the replay of a custscene and pausing the 'game' - good try at not making that distinction though. It's just like when you don't hit enter to go to the next npc dialogue, you're not 'pausing the game' but your pausing that dialogue - same thing /could/ apply to cutscenes.

The cutscenes aren't a continuously updated part of the online world, though. It's just a 3D rendered scene, all of the resources for it AFAIK are stored on your computer.
