# How to stop parallel events

Suppose I begin a parallel event at game start, how can I stop it mid-game?

OK, so since you can make it work between maps, I'm assuming you're using a common event. In that case, can't you just turn off the switch that's activating it?

Secondary event page tied to a switch should do it.

Secondary event page tied to a switch should do it.
Not if it's a common event, which it likely is, if it's running for half the game, including map changes.

If its a common event parallel that its always running I suppose you can phase it by doing this:

if switch x off: do whatever the parallel process should be doing
Else if switch x on: empty, wait 9999 frames

That doesnt stop the parallel process itself but it would just be an empty check, which should have no impact on the rest of the game whatsoever.

Marketing seems to be about reducing dependence on luck to sell a product, as well as expanding the number of avenues in which luck can play a role in selling a product.
So, I've been wanting to do this randomized logic puzzle in my game for years now. I finally figured out how to do it by using arrays and a few small script calls. It's based on the Einstein Fish Puzzle! Though, I have no idea how to actually have the player put in answers.... might start a thread about it.
