Time passing while in some menus

Post by thegriglat » 30 Nov 2017, 11:15

It would be nice to have an option which disables/enables time pause in the inventory menu (it is even in wishlist).

Recently I posted related topic in Off Topic, but I think Feature request/Suggestions is a better place.

I think it would be nice. There are questions though:

1. Which menus would be affected?
2. What if you're talking to somebody and they get killed? Or you get too far away (by falling etc.)?
3. What if you're manipulating an item in your inventory and some running script removes it?

EDIT: I mean these may not really be hard to solve, but we have to agree how. I think it wouldn't be good if items could disappear from under your cursor during drag-and-drop for example.

According to some discussions on TES3MP that I've followed, there are a few dialogues/quests/scripts that break if 'realtime' time is used (i.e. become uncompleteable, spawn infinite dialogue loops, etc.)

Hi all,

1. Only inventory menu affected, the main menu still causes game pause (seems to be OK)
2. If you start dialogue and NPC get killed or became inaccessible dialogue will continue (bug)
3. Not tested yet. But I think an item will be removed from inventory (problem)

Yes, there are some cases which cause infinite dialogue. For example, if more than two guards try to arrest you.
