  • PC Still crashing on ALT+TAB :(

    Hi guys!
    It sad to say, but I recently have started replaying AW and noticed that the game is still constantly crashing on ALT+TAB.
    The game is up to date - 1.05
    DMP files are attached.

    Is it crashing with any scene in particular or are you doing anything in the game that could be affecting it?
    The more feedback information you can give us, the better.

      It doesn't crash when in the menu before loading the game itself, after the game is loaded if you ALT+TAB it (even if the game on pause) crashes.
      Sometimes you have to wait for 5-10 secs before it crashes.
      The screen of error is attached.

      PS. I'd like to add that I have 2 screens in "dualview" mode (NVIDIA control panel). So I switch between them to play games (one of them is HD screen). But the game crashes both on 1st or 2nd screen.

      OS: Win XP SP3

      PPS. If I am not mistaken the bug didn't appear in version 1.02

      PPPS. Also - usage of "WINDOWS" key to minimize the game helps to avoid crashing.

        Hi Pax Mayne.

        Thanks a lot for the crash dumps. I can now see that the game crashes to the rendering engine's Stereoscopic Texture manager.

        In the last few patches we added more Stereoscopic support so you're propably correct that the game used to run in the 1.02 patch but not with the latest 1.05 anymore.

        This is most likely similar to an issue we found that if you Alt+Tab out of the game on Windows 7 with Windows Classic theme the game crashes (but doesn't crash when pressing the Windows key - just like in your case).

        Sorry for breaking the game for you when we added more features. :-P

          Not a big problem
          The main thing that I can minimize the game in the end, so this is not that critical bug (at least to me) that needs to be fixed asap.
