    Select the code inside MonoDevelop and then right-click. When the menu appears, select "Comment Selection".


    EDIT: thanks for that script, technicat.

    This looks like a great scipt although I can't use it because it keeps giving me this error:

    Assets/Pause menu/Pausescript.js(366,25): BCW0012: WARNING: 'UnityEngine.GameObject.active' is obsolete. GameObject.active is obsolete. Use GameObject.SetActive(), GameObject.activeSelf or GameObject.activeInHierarchy.


    any thoughts on how to fix this?

    The cursor doesn't lock making the camera still able to move during pause.

    That's actually a compiler warning, not an error, so it should still run, but warnings should be fixed, too. I'll fix the script on github (haven't touched it in a couple of years), but if you want to take a crack at it ahead of time and fix the script yourself (it's just a couple of lines in the script), I think it's a worthwhile exercise both in terms of getting familiar with the script and understanding SetActive, as that's a pretty important Unity script function everyone should understand.

    Check out the Unity Script Reference page for SetActive, and the Unity 4 release notes has an explanation of how it differs from the Unity 3 active variable. The change was big enough to confuse a lot of people, so I blogged about it too:

    Thanks for the link to the blog, reading it now. Yes it still works but the cursor doesn't lock and the camera still moves around v_v

    I will try to have a crack at it as you say :p see how far I get but I am a noob at scripting so I may end up waiting till you fix it.

    I know it has to do with (obj.active)

    I don't know why the cursor lock wouldn't work (as long as the variable is set to true in the inspector, and keep in mind it cursor locks when unpaused and not when paused), but the script only pauses time so it would only pause camera move if that is time dependent (e.g. I don't think the Unity-supplied mouselook script will stop movement when time is paused). So that's up to you to explicitly disable or modify scripts that need to be paused (see earlier posts on checking if timeScale is zero or disabling scripts and that that that of stuff is asked on the Unity answer site too).

    The code in the script that sets active is actually a feeble attempt at letting you deactivate something extra besides just pausing time, but obviously it's limited (just one GameObject, which was enough for my purposes at the time), so that code is a good place to customize with your extra pause/unpause code. Think of the script as a starter example (as you can see from the github mod date, I haven't been using it for a long while since I don't use UnityGUI anymore...)

    I fixed it with this addition:

    var firstPersonControllerCamera = gameObject.Find("First Person Controller").GetComponent(MouseLook);
    var mainCamera = gameObject.Find("Main Camera").GetComponent(MouseLook);

    Here's the script: http://pastebin.com/iLusCTPF

    Basically added the FPS controller and main camera as a variable and then called it after the pause menu is off :)

    Although clicking "Continue" doesn't really work

    Nice job! By the way, I just remembered I have yet another version of the pause script written for my Unity 4 book, so that version should be up to date with Unity 4 but on the other hand is probably more limited since I tailored it for the book. It's included in the project samples on github: http://technicat.github.io/LearnUnity/
