116 minimize problem

Hi :)

If I minimize version 116 to the taskbar (ALT+TAB), and reopen it again, the screen will be black. I can fish, but no picture is visible.
That wasn't a problem with version 115.

It's a bad bug, because fullscreen online fishing/chatting isn't possible anymore. :(

Regards Peter

Hi Peter,

I have version 116, and if I minimize and reopen it again, all is ok on my Pc,Maybe it is necessary to update the drivers of the graphics card ?

good day

Maybe reinstall 116 and restart the pc and make scandisk ?

Peter,

I got the same problem.

If I came back to RWFF with alt+tab or I clik on the icon in the task bar I got a black screen showing the rod, the blu line, the fish feeding.

I have to move to the up rigth corner looking for the quit botton to go back to the main menu.

In effect wasn't so with 115 release.

Ciao
Massimo

Hello,

I've had that issue for quite some time. I first noticed it when we started using the chat tool - verison 114?? I've just gotten in the habit of turning off full screen mode if I chat and fish at the same time.

Same problem here. And most of the time when I'm tying flies and minimize RWFF and try to return,...screen turns black and locks up,.... I have to manually reboot. This has been happening for several versions.

Sounds like something is broken all right... I'll see what I can find.

Tight lines,

I've found that in XP at Least and probably win2K that the WINDOWS Key +M ( WIN Key ,the flag)+M , both together minimizes the screen and comes back OK when you click the icon at the bottom. Only when I have a screen capture going does it trash things but then that is normal all together too often.

I might note that Alt+Tab does not minimize but switches programs. The effect may be to "minimize" a program but is really not designed that way. the WINKey+M can be undone with either WINKEY+SHIFT+M ( all together or WINKEY+D

Hey Guys,


I have the same problem when iI have the options on Full screen in 1024x768 resolution the game freezes up after you push alt tab when minimized to the task bar.

I don't have any problems though when I turn off full screen and leave the reolution at 1002x768 I can press alt tab and the other page will pop up over RWFF then to get back to RWFF you just move your mouse to an area so you think that the pointer is on the game screen and click your mouse and your back in the game.

Works alos the same with full screen off at 640x480 resolution.

Hope this helps soem of you out a bit.

Hi TheFisher1,

you are right, but for some people like Cutch and me the fullscreen/off doesn't work good, because the mouse is very slow and jerkin.

can i ask if you are trying to go back to the game using ALT+TAB, if so have you tried when it is minimised by clicking on the icon on at the bottom of the screen and not using ALT+TAB to bring back to full screen, as this works for me :?: i am using WIN XP.
