Obsolete public static method CancelQuit(): void;
Obsolete public static void CancelQuit();


Cancels quitting the application. This is useful for showing a splash screen at the end of a game.

This function only works in the player. IMPORTANT: This function has no effect on iPhone. Application can not prevent termination under iPhone OS.

// Delays quitting for 2 seconds and
// loads the finalsplash level during that time.

var showSplashTimeout : float = 2.0; private var allowQuitting : boolean = false;

function Awake () { // This game object needs to survive multiple levels DontDestroyOnLoad (this.gameObject); }

function OnApplicationQuit () { // If we haven't already load up the final splash screen level if (Application.loadedLevelName.ToLower() != "finalsplash") StartCoroutine("DelayedQuit");

// Don't allow the user to exit until we got permission in if (!allowQuitting) Application.CancelQuit(); }

function DelayedQuit () { Application.LoadLevel("finalsplash");

// Wait for showSplashTimeout yield WaitForSeconds(showSplashTimeout);

// then quit for real allowQuitting = true; Application.Quit(); }
