This is a video showing you a little add-on that I have implemented to the popular Minecraft minigame, Rainbow Runner - an in-game 'Stop' button. It allows you to stop the game whenever you want by pressing the easily accessible button. Upon pressing the button, the piston door opens almost immediately afterwards allowing you to escape quickly, reducing your risk of dying. The game then eventually stops.

However, I have still left in the original 'Stop' button that is on the outside of the minigame because if you were to die without pressing the in-game 'Stop' button the piston door would remain closed making it impossible to reach it from outside once you have died. So once you die, you must simply press the outside 'Stop' button will, again, eventually stop.

In the video I briefly explain how the 'Stop' button works and how the redstone wiring works. But note that this is not meant to be a detailed explanation of the game itself, this only shows off the add-on, if you want a full explanation of how it works you can either look for a video of that on YouTube or download the original minigame yourself and have a closer look, made by minecraftpg5.

READ: (Information on the pattern of the colour columns)
The pattern of when each colour column pops up appears to be the same in the brief demonstration I give of the game in the video, however, it is not the same but in fact slightly different. Each time all of the colour columns pass the player the pattern will change very slightly and keep changing until the game stops. This means that after a few minutes, the pattern will seem very different to when you first started the game. It's all to do with how the game works - using minecarts which run in a loop along detector rails which activate each piston to make the blocks pop up. These minecarts all run at slightly different speeds, which means that each 'loop' that they perform around the track on which they run along, the position of the minecarts in correlation to each other will change slightly, and therefore change the pattern slightly of when the colour columns pop up above. I hope you understand what I mean. If you don't you can just download the map and play the game, and hopefully then, after playing for a minute or two, you will see how the pattern changes slightly over time.
