How to skip the skinning animation

#1Seebo83Posted 6/11/2010 12:18:32 PM
I'm sure most of you probably already know this, but if you park your horse directly on top of a corpse(animal or human) and then dismount and skin or loot the body, you will instantly recieve the skin/cash/horns, etc. without having to repeatedly endure the skinning animation. I find it to be a huge time-saver...

I knew if there's an obstruction then the skinning animation will be skipped - but nice find - I didn't know of a way to guarantee it.

The skinning cutscene is annoying listening to the character make dried up remarks. I hope they keep this in.

Yeah, I had a feeling someone had posted this before, but I hadn't seen it, so I thought I'd throw it in here for anyone who hadn't seen it yet either.

I don't see any reason why they would address it... It's not hurting anybody

They should remove the skinning animations entirely or shorten them. It reminds me of the Far Cry 2 car repair animations... just unneccessary

I hunt on foot. It'd take longer to make a kill, whistle my horse over, get on my horse, walk over the corpse, dismount my horse, then collect the loot as it would to just deal with a 6 second skinning animation.

I know I'm dreaming, but it'd be nice if there was an option in the menu to disable the skinning cut scenes. Similar to how you could turn off the long summoning intros in Final Fantasy. I love hunting in this game, but after a while the one-liners and forced cut scene get tiresome.
