Ignore Timescale

Hi Aren,

Can you tell us what's the benefit of ignoring or not the timescale in the tween scripts ?

Thanks !

When you pause the game via timescale = 0, you want your UI to still work as if the game wasn't paused. For this, you ignore the timescale.

Thanks for the answer,

I've read somewhere that setting the timescale to 0 is not a so good idea to pause the game. Any issue you're thinking about when setting timescale to 0 ?

The main thing you have to be aware of when setting Time.scale = 0, is that your deltaTimes will be 0. It shouldn't really change other stuff.
