Multi Tasking / ALt Tab Issue?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I am aware that by default Ghost Recon original does not support multi-tasking/Alt Tab Functions.

I was wondering if anyone has every found a way around this? As I am keen to stream the Original GR on my Twitch but not being able to Multi Task is an issue.

I am also sorry if this has been asked loads, iv'e looked through FAQ's and the forum as best as I can!

 

Thanks!

I have no trouble alt-tabbing out of GR to desktop or other applications that are open. But maybe you are trying to do something I have not tried.
Are you unable to get out of GR by using alt-tab in every circumstance?

"Pressing Alt-Tab switches between all open applications in the Taskbar. The Alt key is held down while the Tab key is pressed to cycle through the icons of all the windows." from PC Mag
I didn't know about this until today when I searched alt-tab. The bit from PC Mag works for me.

I use Windows 10.

No issue ALT TABBING out, but the game will close entirely. :( 

The actual user manual states that Alt Tab/Multi tasking is not supported

In the options.xml, you can set the game to windowed mode. May have to slightly lower the resolution, but alt-tab works and also doesnt mess with all your windows if you run multiple monitors like i do.

Ok,

Consider me an XML N00b.

What command line do I need to put in /Change to do this?  I have attempted a few bits and buggered it (Game won't open at all even reverting to previous). 

Gonna whack a reinstall and try again. Hahaha

Ignore me, game opened fine through steam, just not through desktop shortcut.

 

I think thats cracked it! - Although I can't seem to get the resolution to change the screen size?  Either in game or through the XML. When I change it in the xml it registers in game (Highlights the appropriate one in game) but doesn't change the size of window at all
