Start game in Backround
« on: October 31, 2019, 10:01:40 am »
Hello guys!!
My first try to make a cabinet and after 2 weeks is everythink good.
I have a problem now and I can't fint any solution, if some one can help me!!
Every time I try to start a game, the game load in backround and I must change the window with the ctrl+alt+tab.
I want close the cabinet and I don't want use keyboard at all. I want use only the joysticks.
How I can start the games allways in front of Mala's window direct in the game?

I have a small video with my problem sorry if this don't allowed

Thank you very much guys!!

I think the malafe site has a slightly newer beta version to use (just replace the exe file)... I seem to recall that it fixes focus issues like this.
