:mad: At age 71, I sometimes need a breather to check the manual or my notes... Is there NO way to pause Bf1942 so I can do this? Esc, Pause, nothing seems to give me a break. (single player, campaigns, no online work 'yet' !)

You can do it on campaign and singleplayer by hitting ESC. You can't pause online because that means you would be pausing everyone elses game. However if you hit esc online you will go to the main menu, it won't pause the game but it will take you out of the active screen. You leave the pause menu by hitting ESC again.

Check you setup in options but i believe the default is "P"

Its certainly a good thing to know that we have such smart, intellectual, articulate young people out there, what with your 16 yrs of life you can honestly call someone stupid who probably has more knowledge in him than you have will ever understand (except maybe when your in your 70’s). Its really good to know that one day (maybe) you too will be 70 and I hope you come across a young person who gives you the respect you will deserve and remember that you didn’t.

Great going Bandaid, playing computer games at 71. I am 60 and my children grew up playing console games with me. (we started with pong)

I still play console games, only with my grand children now, and my wife from time to time. She like mario kart and she is good at it.

I started on computers about 7 yrs ago, and I learned to like them very much. I played Silent Hunter for about 6 yrs. Then my oldest son (a computer tech) got me interested in BF1942, I sure like it and play a lot. I am not the best and but I have good days and bad ones, like yesterday....I got my butt handed to me...LOL.... but I had fun.

As an old friend of mine once said "I'm a young man, trapped in an old body."

Keep playing Bandaid, maybe we should start an " old mans clan"

Hope to see you on the battlefield

Blah, Don't make pointless comments just answer what hes asking for or don't reply at all. Who cares if hes 71 or if hes lying the default Key is P, unless you changed it
