Would it be a reasonable thought to make it where host can pause an MPI game via their computer? Like, for instance, the host has to go afk for a sec and thus presses pause and the whole game stops for every player until he unpauses? Just so if I'm practicing hovers over an AI base and I need to get up and do something I don't have to worry about anything while I'm away.

basically, it just saves me time and effort when testing.

i do it to save time when i am testing AIP, DLL, and weapon changes, etc., and so i can leave the game up and come back to it later.

it's not much fun having to hold down the fire button forever in order to kill something when one click will do nicely. it also saves me having to gather scrap/pools and rebuild the base.

yeah you can just run the vsr shortcut with /othergame and you can customize what features you want to use from games that were made 14 years after bz2 was

MPI bases are notoriously bad examples of bases you will encounter in real strat games. Start with editor, edit yourself some rats, hover em, then move on to gts, etc. You can pause anytime like Silver said. enable edit AUUNNNN.

i'm thinking it would easy to pause a multiplayer strat match by the server killing everyone (including himself) and pausing respawning. you guys are clever at coming up with ideas and i think gbd could do that for you.

Actually mort, the game I was referring to was made in 2000. So not too much older. But I see what you guys are saying. I'll practice in le editoar.
