There is no pause button in the game speed bar. I have seen discussions where people mention Space or 0 as the pause key except you have to turn it on. Neither of these work, and I have checked the menu looking for them but there is nothing.

Is there a pause button in DEFCON?

When setting up a new game, go into the Advanced Options tab.

Select the dropdown menu from Slowest Speed. When you set it to Pause, you will be able to pause the game by pressing 0.
