    I am not sure the meaning of it. What is another word for "that's as far as you go" ?

    You cannot go any further. This is the end of the line. You have gone as far as you could've gone. You have reached the end.

    Thanks. I understand.

    I am trying to put fewer words in my game but its not enough space due to ROM memory size. Perhaps, three or four words?

    Is that the entire sentence? Also, what are the previous couple of sentences so we can understand the context.

    Okay, I tried: You can't go no more. Sounds good ? However, one word need to removed to fit in the sentence so I can't think of something.

    I am with sandytf, more context would be helpful.

    If it is more "This is where we part ways my friend. From here I go alone." then it would sound very odd to use a phrase like "this is the edge of the level, go no further".

    For the former something like "you're done" works well, though be careful with that as such a phrase is not uncommon if you are firing someone/stopping them so you can take over and may not be that friendly, unless the person is about the sacrifice themselves and in that case it is somewhat less aggressive.

    For the latter would something like "return to the mission" do?

    Until we have context though it is not going to do much good and you can look at end in a thesaurus as well as any of us.

    Great.. It fits but I like something to do with "go". Maybe, I can't let you go! I don't know but I want it to be relate to That's as far as you go!

    Edit: Okay.. Someone is trying to stop an enemy.

    Stop is good but just one word ? Nah. What about: I can't let you go? OR That's enough? Is that another word for That's as far as you go? Something to do with "go" in the sentence but smaller sentence, I think. That's an exclamation in the sentence when I use it, of course. Help ? :)

    "You cannot pass me"? Formal but relatively decent in my opinion

    Scram, dog breath.

    *aims shotgun* You feel lucky...punk?

    I can't let you do that, Dave.

    THOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!




    ...why is this thread in general gaming section? Of what I can think of, only the first one is from an actual game (Leisure Suit Larry). Though there are probably dozens of lines if you start looking (like that popping exclamation mark above the guards head in metal gear solid when they spot you).

    What is "There you go with the flattery…" ??

    An Enemy used this person against person's will but an enemy realised that this person is strong. An enemy told this person that he is the best but the person said: There you go with the flattery...

    What does that mean ? Another word for How could I resist ? or There is no excuse ? Is that what he is try to telling you that ? I just want to clarify that.

    Flattery is when you tell a person good things about themselves, so in telling the character that he is strong, he's complimenting, or flattering, that character.

    Obrigado. Eu sei, mas eu quero ter uma frase fácil.


    LOL. Are you serious ? I am looking for another word for "There you go with the flattery..." in the simple sentence. Maybe 3 or 4 letters in one sentence instead of 6 letters.
