Pausing
So for my game I'm making, which will not only have single player but multiplayer as well, I'm wondering about pausing it for single player, and so it brings me to the question, how can I pause things?

I'm thinking of doing so by looping through a list of objects in the world that have animations and such, and by freezing them. How do I do this? That is if this is the best way to go about it.

RE: Pausing
In GameUpdate()

if (MenuTab.window.hidden() || Sysinformation.window.hidden() || Options.window.hidden() || InformationPopup.window.hidden() )
{

//Everything u wanna update if menus are hidden
Clouds.layered.update();
Game::World.update(Cam.matrix.pos);
Water.update(Vec2(0.01));
UpdateCamera();
SUN_update();
}

RE: Pausing
Hello,
I know this is old..
I want to pause the game play, which the Yurci's post works fine for that.
But it also pauses the GUI.

Is there anyway of pausing the gameplay and not the GUI?

update, I'll add
Gui.draw();

I'm sure that'll work smile

Make sure you add the GUI.Update() outside of the if-structure. smile
