Topic Subject:minimizing/pausing game
posted 31 October 2002 09:39 AM EDT (US)         
So I downloaded the demo at work yesterday and started playing it. I noticed that if I hit alt+tab when people came around and I had to work that while the game was minimized, all the little villagers kept on working. The game didn't pause when minimized. Since this was the demo, I was playing single player mode. I do this a lot at home with aoe, aoc: play for 15 minutes, flip over and work for 15 minutes, etc.

I also couldn't find a pause button on the menus. Is there a keystroke that will pause it? Haven't had that much time to search the docs. I tried this playing in both window and non-window mode.

BTW, it plays just fine, if a little slowly, on a Dell Optiplex GX110 with a measly 4 meg integrated graphics card.

At home it played just fine with my GeForce2mx with 32. Although in both places, switching the screen resolution didn't really seem to have any effect. A demo limitation?

it is 3d so changing screen resloution will have no effect on size at all just depth and detail. You can zoom in and out using the + and - keys though.

You are going to kick yourself, to pause the game well you hit the pause key of course. The pause/break key on your keyboard that is.

D'oh. Haven't used the pause key since I would pause bat file execution. Who knew people still remembered it was there.

You sure you balanced 15 mins of work with 15 of play, or is it more like 5 mins work 30 mins play?

I hope you didn't post this at work, though; sometimes employers monitor what their employees do (log their actions online)...
