Wait in background

Hi Chris!

I have a simple ActionList with Check state and then Turn Off / Turn On Menu here:


I want: if player will click on the button (this ActionList I have on a menu button) the Engine will wait 5 seconds and then will close the inventory. But I want to Engine Wait in background - the Player can play game during this time and then inventory will automatically close.

Maybe some Action in the red circle on the image?

Thanks for answer in advance (I tried many ways but nothing worked).



  • Whether the game is paused or not depends on the ActionList - not the Actions.  An Engine: Wait Action can be used to delay Actions, rather than block gameplay, if the ActionList's When running field is set to Run In Background, as opposed to Pause Gameplay.
  • Thank you! Easy solution as always.
