World of Goo Forum  /  A new cutscene skip glitch?
  Savage_BrickSavage_Brick

Ok so I know there is already a cutscene skip glitch, however I heard it takes 15-20 minutes to set up and is very boring to do. I just found a new glitch that only takes around 30 seconds to set up, however, it may only work on the first cutscene, the world of goo corporation cutscene

Here's how to do it:

-open the game
-Press ctrl+shift+esc to open up task manager
-Close task manager
-re-enter the game by clicking its icon on the taskbar
-the icon should disappear, then the game will load up (as it was, not a new game)
-create a new file
-play through it normally until right after hang low, when the cutscene is supposed to start
- right after you see the cursor disappear, just click, then the cutscene should just be skipped and you can move on

Idk if this works on any other cutscenes or if this should be allowed

here's a run I did last night where I did do the cutscene skip:

I don't really understand this glitch well enough to make a ruling on it, can you make a video showing the whole thing? As far as I can tell you did the setup before the run.

Alright I did a video here demonstrating it, I hope this helps!

I don't see any reason to ban this, but let me see if I can replicate it first.

I can't even follow the very first steps. I feel like this glitch might be game version dependent or OS dependent. It also certainly doesn't work on consoles. I think banning it is probably the most reasonable option unless you have objections.

do you play disc version? Steam version? PC or Mac?
