I'm looking for a way to really pause Dragon Age Inquisition, in such a way that the time elapsed doesn't change (the one displayed next to the saved games).

I've tried various things - opening the menu, Alt-Tab to the desktop, etc., but the elapsed time keeps changing. Any idea how to do this (assuming it can be done)?

  • Can you do this on console?

  • You can try changing the clock on your computer. This is assuming the game gets the time from your computer

Saved game times are just telling you how long that save has been run in real-life time. Unless you find a way to pause Time Itself outside the game (or I guess binary patch the game executable to count time elapsed differently), you can't stop the game from counting real time elapsed.

If you really don't want the savegame real-life clock to advance, save and quit instead of pausing.
