F12 will open the menu and pause the game.
Thank you for helping me. I tried the F12 key on my keyboard and it turns on the "Airplane Mode" to my computer.
So I opened the menu from the game and it does pause the game (and the message line in the menu does state F12 will open the menu). But I wanted to issue orders while in the pause mode, and this can't be done while the game is paused.
I pulled out my Fight Back Manual from cdv and read on page 23 "Orders in pause mode." Here's what it says,
3.5 Orders in pause mode:
"You can issue commands in a single player game while the game is paused. To do this, press the KEY assigned to the PAUSE function to interrupt the game. You can now issue commands to your units. These will be carried out when you continue the game by pressing the pause key again."
The game manual doesn't say which key to press. Do you have any idea which key I press to interrupt the game so I can issue commands to my units?
Thank you very much!
