Stop Wasting My Time

Speeds up the game by removing pointless pauses and other time-wasters.
All changes are purely cosmetic.

Updated for Zip mode update!

Combat changes:
  • Removed various pauses:
    • After shooting, throwing grenades, abilities, etc.
    • After getting a kill
    • After going into cover
    • Reanimating corpses and unburrowing chryssalids
    • Revealed enemies cinematic time
  • Removed unskippable Bradford voiceovers:
    • 1, 3, and 6 turns remaining warnings
    • Civilians dying warning
  • Increased Gremlin movement speed by 150%
  • Removed 33% slowdown of enemies not being attacked during overwatch slowmo (enemies being attacked are unaffected)

Non-combat changes:
  • Increased the speed of the Avenger on the global map
  • Reduced the fade-in time of the horrendously slow color picker

I highly recommend also subscribing to IphStich's Instant Avenger Menus mod:
  • No transitions between rooms on Avenger
  • No Hologlobe dissolve animation
  • Faster Avatar Project updates

If anyone finds any other annoying pauses please let me know, I'll look into it.


Classes Overridden (why do I care?):
  • (non-essential) UIColorChip.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EndCinescriptCamera.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EnterCover.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_MoveDirect.uc

Thanks to IphStich for figuring out how to speed up the Gremlins (and contributing the code)!
Thanks to tracktwo for figuring out how to shut Bradford up!
Thanks to MINERAL-115, Ttack, and Joshimodo for contributing logos!

I read in one of the ini files that you'll probably delete stuff because zip line does it, please dont! I don't like zip line and would prefer to just have the stuff you originally had :)

not for me unfortunately

Does this mod no longer work?

@Legion Prime If you look at the Change Notes (fourth tab in the row at the top), there's one that says "Reduced revealed enemies cinematic time". I haven't played in a while, but I remember the "pod revealed" cinematics being there (since I had sound issues with them at one point), and the changelog seems to confirm that.

I have to ask, does this remove the Revealed enemies cinematics?, or just the delay btween them? (where you see them on the map, then they are reaveld and then the Revealed enemies cinematic starts)

Caps Lock @Zaanzabar, pressing it makes loading screens go by a lot faster. But with a very little chance of making the game crash, never happened to me though.
Zaanzabar Aug 20 @ 5:10pm 
You said to let you know about any additional annoying pauses, so here goes: The most annoying thing to me, is the mission brief and debrief screens. Is there any way to make those go by faster? I finish reading the whole thing in about 1/3 of the time it is required to be up. I don't know if there is required asset loading going on in the background that might preclude speeding it up, but worth a shot.

BTW: Get well soon
