Pausing in the middle of dialogue?

Hello everyone!

I've been working on a picture menu system for a little while now and it completely functions. My picture menu does not require transferring to another map or anything like that.

I was wondering... because my game is story based- and thus heavily reliant on dialogue, is there a way to be able to access a picture menu in the middle of conversations with characters?

For example- after a message window has appeared- I could press "P" and access the pause menu, then when I leave the menu, the dialogue resumes as normal?

The best idea that I could have at the moment would be providing choice breaks in the dialogue like "would you want to pause/save now?"

Even if there is a way to access the game's built in menu mid dialogue it could be a start of something to work with...

Thanks in advance!

Just finished composing a boss battle theme!
Scripted a multi-variable weather system that randomizes wind speed, cloudiness, rain, fogginess, etc, while attempting to realistically account for interactions between them (e.g. wind speed affects fogginess, cloudiness affects rain, etc), the current weather pattern, and the player's biome e.g. swamp, beach, etc. Now I "just" have to tie visuals and sounds to the variables so stuff actually happens...
I'm having a headache balancing the combat using flat defense so I'm gonna use percentual armor, in this pic, Simon has 16 on Defense which means all the incoming damage will be reduced by 16% this will ease my burden a bit.
!Have a nice day everybody¡
SO glad they patched outer worlds for switch! I can finally play it! Weird that other peeps are still having issues. I know it was really chugging on my lite when it first came out.
