I know there is a function that allows you to pause the game for X amount of seconds. I can't remember what it is and can't find it. Anyone know what Im talking about? Im trying to display information but each line only 2 seconds at a time.

There is no such function, not in standard C++.

There are platform-specific functions (such as Sleep() in the Windows API) that allow you to delay, but these are usually not precise timers (for example in the case of Sleep(), the amount of time you specify is only a minimum, you might be held inactive longer).
