I have the Faces of War demo and I like it for the most part though there are some things that have me scratching my head.

Why can't I issues commands while paused? The GUI doesn't respond at all while the game is paused. But some time when you un-pause the changes you made actually take.

You would think that being able to issue commands while paused would be a given in a game like this where they are throwing an excessive amount of troops and armor at your little group of men.

Oh man I'm d/l now, please don't tell me there is no pause and give orders! Pause/orders was such a big part of my tactics not to mention I'm a big slo-mo *****! I hope the final game has it!

Use "backspace" and choose gamespeed 1, then its really slow and its allmost like commanding while pause http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sometimes you can issue commands whilst paused, over times a red cross comes up. I dont really get how it works. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I had the game paused and did a couple things, seems as if it's just the GUI that doesn't update while the game is paused.
