Game hangs after switching to desktop

Game hangs after switching to desktop

Postby nights99 » Sat Apr 04, 2015 5:18 pm

I have the steam version of the game, and I'm enjoying it.

However, any time Windows switches back to the desktop (e.g. due to some windows update notification), I can't get back into the game - any attempt to switch just hangs indefinitely, and task manager shows it as not responding. I can force kill it - but that often mean losing a whole game-day worth of play. Is this a known issue?

Thanks,
Jon

nights99,

What version of windows are you using so I can try to reproduce this? Also if you are playing and just Alt-Tab out of the game to the desktop and then try to go back to the game does that also not work?

This is Windows 7; yep, alt-tabbing to desktop and then trying to return causes the same issue.

I've switched to playing in windowed mode to avoid this problem; I preferred full screen though :)

Thanks.

Here is an older thread about the same issue, unfortunately without any solution so far.
