ok I've got:

code:
process gtch
    getch (direction)
end gtch


running via:

code:
fork gtch


I'd like to know how to halt this process. Thanks.

insted of using a proces i whould use:

code:

if hasch then
    getch (direction)
end if


and put that in your main loop, but if you think you real have to use a proces i whould put some kind of if and a golabe varible that will will be set to ture or false. if it is flase it will no longer get the ch.

if you use Input.KeyDown you dont event have to check if anything is pressed or not... all variables are just set to false Wink

I tried doing the boolean thing dan, it still checks the process, I'm sure there has to be a function or a method to actually stop check it.

wait, what the heck are you halting there anyway? your process isn't even a loop.. it just sits there and waits for input

well that's the sample code...

realistically it's:

code:
loop
fork gtch
end loop

use boolean data
code:

procedure forkyMcFork
if stop = false then
run fork
end if
end forkyMcFork

loop
forkyMcFork
if a = b then
stop = true
end if
end loop
