let me kick this off by asking a few questions

how do you stop the background from scrolling with the scroller extension ?

how to you stop all movement on a sprite so if you press the controls or jump button it wont work so you can open menus and that withought controlling the sprite in the background?

and how do you make a sprite invinicible in the best way possible ?
