Ready Made!

It's a completely awesome system, the only thing is how to incorporate it into a side scroller on a touch screen is not readily apparent.

It works!

I'm so happy they included instructions, it took me no time at all to check the help for spacebar and enter for pause. Get it!

Nice system

I bought this project a long time ago, but I've never used it until now, it works perfectly.


Brandon L 13 December 2015

I popped this into project and it worked perfectly. What else can I possibly say?

The text on my screen scales up when i pause

When i pause my game, the text scale up. and in pause it does not freeze on my view, it is set of my character and it looks wierd, but else it works very nice. just hoping i could get some help with that and i'll give full score :-)

thanks for this amazing pause system however i need a little help..when i pause i create some buttons to resume or go to the main menu..but those buttons are being created under the semi transparent rectangle and it doesn't seem like i can solve this..any help ?


Clavos Studios (Publisher) 25 September 2015

It is because the semitransparent rectangle is drawn in the Draw Gui event, if you want you can draw on the normal Draw event or you can use the Draw Gui event in your objects buttons to draw your sprites and so appear above the rectangle. Any questions can contact me at email: :)
*thanks for review!

Clean and working

Nothing to say, works fine and it's easy to use.

Simple and works!

Works perfect for my game. I just needed to add two lines of code to deactivate physics as well. If anyone is wondering, its: physics_pause_enable(true);

So far, so good.

Unless future use proves otherwise, this is a great little tool that works quickly and easily. Pausing/resuming background music simultaneously just takes a couple of added lines in the code. Great addition to my toolbox. Thanks!

Edit: I see it's updated now, but I still wouldn't recommend this asset after testing the new version.

There are other pause extensions on the marketplace that work a lot better, and they are free too.

I have restructured the code resource (now in version 2.0), and I've noticed a few mistakes, I hope that now it will be useful to your liking, I regret the inconvenience in previous versions :)
