Valve games mimimize when clicking on them in main menu of those game


#1

Hi,

Something odd.

Lately the Valve games automatically minimize to taskbar when I click on it when I’m on the main menu, except HL2

Tried Singularity aswell, no problems at all

Somebody?

Thanks!

Do you play in Windowed mode or not? If not, try it…

-windowed -noborder -console
in launch settings.

They Always played well in full screen and just some games using the latest engine are minimizing to taskbar.

e.g. Half Life 2 and Black Mesa Mod play well, but Black Mesa Retail and Portal 2 just keep minimizing, not able to play it.

I tried Windowed mode, that worked, but I wonder if there is some kind of update done so this games have those bug now

I’d be willing to bet money that Windows 10 is your issue along with immature drivers for same.

It would also be helpful if you post your system specs when reporting issues.

Well -windowed -noborder and you have both fullscreen and tab friendly… Source games really are a bitch when it comes to tabbing.
