Greetings,

Whenever I open a database entry window for any particular unit (for instance, clicking on it under the unit-status display) the game pauses.

I run a three monitor display, and I keep the database entries on a separate screen, but it does the same thing regardless of where I place the window.

I don't seem to remember it doing this before, and I'm wondering if I've missed a setting somewhere that will enable the game to continue running without pressing the spacebar each time.

I'm honestly thinking I've missed a check box somewhere, but I figured I'd ask to see if anyone has encountered this.

Scenario file included for example.

Thanks to all!

This was changed a few years ago because of complaints form players that wanted the game to pause when they were pursuing the database.

Hi sparky577, thewood1 is correct. This is working as intended to prevent gameplay from moving unexpectedly during Database consultations.

That's a good point - for multi-screen use it might be worth having pause on/off as an option. Even for ultrawide screens which are becoming more common.

It might be worth adding an option to pause on DB Viewer.
