Ending NPC Dialogue

Post by mrsandman321 » Thu Nov 23, 2017 2:19 pm

So, I have found three inelegant ways to end a conversation with an NPC:

1) Walk away and eventually the dialogue box disappears (unless it's a store)
2) Hit Tab to bring up inventory, but then need to hit Tab again to out of that.
3) Hit Escape to bring up the menu, but then need to hit Escape again to get out of that.

Am I missing some really easy, obvious way to get out of the dialogue box? I tried searching in the forums for an answer to this but couldn't find one.

Thanks!

As far as I know there's no way to end conversations aside from the methods you mentioned. I usually go with the double tab. It would be nice to be able to just press r to end the conversation.

I moved this to the bug reporting section. I believe pressing the "R" key used to close the dialogue window, in Beta 16 we changed a bit how that key worked (to accommodate the fact that anyone can now drop items anywhere and the R key is used for multiple things) and it seems it might have broken this functionality. We'll be sure to fix this for the next update! Thanks for the report!

There is a button in the Config for "Previous Menu," which exits out of a dialogue. This button may or may not be the same as other buttons by default. Changing one or more bound keys can make exiting conversations easy!
