I looked into many guides and videos about the tactical camera in dragon age inquisition. Often the "advance time" function is mentioned, and in videos where a game pad controller is used, there is a specific button to advance time. How do I do it with keyboard and mouse? I could not find anything on that...
There is currently no way to advance time with a keyboard and mouse setup. It is possible on consoles and on PC with a controller only.
I initially thought that the arrows on either side on the hourglass were for time control, but either they aren't or it hasn't been implemented yet/correctly.
Perhaps a future patch will see the introduction of time control in tactical view on keyboard and mouse, but it does not exist at the moment.
