I don't think that this is possible (at least not in the mp)

Umm Replay feature you can do that I think
ŊЏ | Shifu Oct 23, 2012 @ 7:43am 
Yes, you can pause in replay ^^

No, you can't pause and give orders like most strategy games. Vote with your dollars if you want pause.

The game has great looking screenshots, but don't stop to enjoy the view while actually playing, you'll get lit up.

Other obvious missing features are autosave and quicksave.

Great rant, jonez. Go over to the official forums and make your voice heard in the pause and give orders thread:

We need all the help we can get.

Kind of takes the "Real Time" out of Real Time Strategy Game though, doesn't it?

Wow Jonez.....I guess the game is just beyond your mental dexterity and capability!!

Must be as simple as that because I have no problem or issue with doing that.

Why not try playing ranked games against other players and see if that improves for you.

Alternatively I hear that Lego games have plenty pause features and autosaves and you can run around with endless lives smashing things up.

OK you guys, have fun watching your blue boxes bump into red boxes. I for one would like to look at the sumptuous graphics, and you know, if I could pause and give orders, by golly, I'd have time to do that!

If it was _real_ time, you'd be right. But these games should be called Accelerated Time Strategy, because the pace of a turn based game is much closer to how events happen in the real world.
A lot of people (or at least me) don't enjoy engaging in clicking duels with a machine, and because of that they (or at least me) don't buy strategy games which cannot be paused while still being able to issue orders. And that is an optional feature everywhere where it exists; if you don't want it, you don't use it.

In the real world one man cannot micro manage a whole brigade, thats why there are chains of command; hence a pause function is completely justified as you are playing the role of a brigadier, 2 cournals, 4 lt. cournals, 8 majors, 16 captains and numerous NCOs

Watch your replays to zoom in and look at the pretty graphics

Dear mother of god, everytime someone asks for a feature or a cheat in a forum a band of nitwits try to tell him that he doesn't need it. Or that he is a noob if he does.

Just answer the effing question. And if you dont know just stay silent and browse on.

Apparently there IS a speed hack btw wich lets you not quite pause the game but at least slow it to a crawl or even speed it up in lull phases. You have to use cheatengine for it. Just google around.

I was frustrated with the game for exactly this reason. Now with that hack I might give it another shot. Wont buy another game from that series until they give us a pause&command for sp though. Gotta punish laziness.

great, I have to try the speed hack with cheatengine ... maybe it will be playable again. To bad there is now cheatengine for linux.
