Elden Ring Mod For PC Finally Lets You Properly Pause The Game
Ancient Ring: it’s good people say, but this is fine with some caveats, such as the fact that you can’t properly pause the game. It’s not something new for Souls as headings, of course. But if Elden Ring hype means it’s the first one you check out (or if you’re older and/or your circumstances have changed since you last played it), then you should know that you are now can pause the game, you just need to do something first.
For those who have just joined us while SoulsTitles like these allow you to call up menus like in a regular video game, they never actually pause the action, meaning that unless you find a particularly safe and convenient place to hide somewhere, your inventory juggling can be interrupted by a few arrows to the face. And while strictly single-player games used to have pause-like workarounds like accessing certain exit menus and photo modes, ever since Miyazaki and his company added online elements to games, you couldn’t pause them by normal means ( the only exception is Sekiro).
While I welcome the intent here – as with most design decisions in Souls games, the essence of cruelty – in practice, I hate it with all my heart. I am a father of two who also works at a job where my attention is constantly diverted to 1,000 different directions, and although I would like to play the game without interruption, my life is nothing. But interruptions and so trying to play these games is a constant strain for me. Ancient Ring is not an exception.
So I am very excited to try this new mode which is like PC gamer reports are now available for download called Pause in the game and made by TechieW, it does exactly what the name suggests and adds the correct working pause mode to the ancient ring.
However, there is a catch: one of the reasons the game won’t stop is because it’s technically impossible, in which case its network components won’t work, so to enable Pause in the game you need to disable Easy Anti-Cheat Service which will then load the ancient ring offline. This will allow you to pause at the cost of not being able to use the online components of the game, but for some people like me! It’s a compromise worth making.
