Description

Description:
Returns the state of game simulation. Simulation can get paused by pressing ALT + TAB or a system dialog opening (e.g. ESC menu). Simulation will not get paused if -noPause startup parameter is used.
onEachFrame event and "EachFrame" event handler continue to execute when the simulation is paused, which could result in undesired backlog. Use isGamePaused to skip loop if needed.

In multiplayer the simulation will not get paused and this command will always return false.
