One of the best pause examples on the marketplace. A very simple and FREE asset permitting you to pause your game, deactivating all instances AND to take a screenshot of the entire screen presently shown. This example easily integrates into your games with little or no change at all.
- 1 script to capture the screen
- 1 controller object to pause the game
I created this because sprite_create_from_screen and background_create_from_screen do not exist anymore in Game Maker Studio.

You can see a good use of this pause example in my other asset: Tile Base Platform Engine (TBPE)
