View Full Version : display duration for subtitles

Hi, is there anyway to increase the durations for subtitles?
Or just let them stay displayed until you press a button.

You could just pause the game to read them? :)
Can't say that I've ever had a problem with their duration, although after the first playthrough I turned them off as they were getting in the way of the beautiful grahpics. :)

I totally agree with this. It should stay until dismiss or another subtitle comes. It's not general caption behaviour on the source engine, but I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to implement.
But yes, the pause trick works, you can bind it to anything too in the console. I personally have it on "P"
bind p pause

The trouble with leaving the subtitles on (until the next ones pop up) is that they get in the way. Assuming that the player understands English, I would always recommend turning them off.

The problem is that the captions have an innate timer. You could change them, but it is recommended not to. The pause trick might be the best solution.
