An Incredible Idea

As some of you might know, many people decide to press tab or escape when something really scary just happened.

My idea for a story, is that in some parts you are unable to pause the game (Meaning tab and escape won't function in these areas). Is this possible?

Well, as far as I know, you can disable the inventory by
void SetInventoryDisabled(bool abX);

I don't know about the menu thou...

RE: An Incredible Idea

I don't think you can disable the 'escape' key. And why would you? Some players will click 'Esc' because they need to go for a second. Besides, if a player pauses because it's too scary, then you shouldn't force more on him, right?

Disabling the inventory whenever a servant is after you would be just perfect.

RE: An Incredible Idea

My idea revolves around places such as gauntlet events (You have to dash through a maze because something is chasing you) because a friend of mine tends to pause the game simply because he's too frightened. Now, I don't want him to be a p***y and do that in my custom story. I want to force him to stay on the move untill he craps his pants.

SetInventoryDisabled(true);

That would disable the inventory. Don't know of a function for the escape button though...

PS: I agree, an incredible idea Big Grin
