|Summary||0000496: "Pause the game while scanning" to Edit-Settings|
Please add a setting in Edit/Settings so that "Pause the game while scanning" will already be ticked when starting Cheat Engine.
I don't understand why it is not ticked by default because if the game is a modern resource intensive game, scanning will take longer if the game is not paused, right?
Besides the speed issue, why would you want the game not paused when scanning for something? I would assume that the best methodology would be to scan when all values are frozen, not when many of them are constantly changing.

Most modern games will just pause themselves when they lose focus.
And those that don't sometimes error out if the game has been frozen too long
And then there's those that use hotkeys and do an unchanged value scan, which they hold down constantly as long as nothing is about to change the value they're looking for. Pausing would make the game stutter
But I've added the option in settings
