About CinematicCanceler

Automatically and immediately cancels all in-game cinematics and movies. CinematicCanceler ensures you are never stuck on a cinematic screen while important group events are taking place. In some cases can even prevent cinematic-related client crashes and freezes.

Install as usual and It Just Works (tm). Will print a message to chat when a cinematic is suppressed. You can hold any modifier key (shift, control, alt) when a cinematic is starting to allow it to play.

    If anyone wondering if it works on Shipyard cinematic. I can confirm that it does!

    HUGELY appreciated. Would be fantastic if it allowed a cinematic to be played if it had never been seen before, but that is probably something that can't be flagged by an addon.

    Awesome addon, a real help to multiboxing. Thanks.

    This doesn't seem to be canceling the cinematics inside Siege of Orgrimmar, other than that, it's been working great.

    Oscar, do you still play? Which is to say, do you know if this works on the transition movie after Council/before Tortos?

    I just tested this on the first cinematic I came too after installing this addon.

    The name of the quest with the cinematic was How to Maime Your Dragon in Twilight Highlands.

    The cinematic started, played, I got quest completed, cinematic continued to play. Realizing the addon wasn't going to cancel it I hit ESC and canceled the cinematic myself.  When the cinematic closed, the chat window said "Cinematic Canceler: Cinematic canceled"  as if it did the cancel, taking credit for the fact I had to do so manually.

    Sorry, but this doesn't seem to work.

    You may have inadvertantly been pressing a modifier key (shift, alt, control) when the cinematic began, which tells the addon to allow it to play.

    There are a few one-time quest cinematics that may bypass the addon, and a handful that actually won't award quest completion unless you allow them to play them thru (hence the modifier key feature).

    I assure you the addon works perfectly on the raid cinematics that play in DS, which is the main purpose of this addon.

    No I did not hold a modifer key, my hands weren't even on the keyboard until I decided to cancel the cinematic myself.

    As I said in my 2nd post later on, it did work on the next cinematic I came too.  So it's spotty I guess. Thanks though.

    EDIT: spelling

    It did work on the cinematic from the quest named Eye Spy that came later on after the previous one I reported.

    Finally! No more trying to get out of movie screens.

    Works perfectly!
