Win7x64 task switching and resolution
Native desktop resolution 19201080
Game graphics setting 19201080
When task switching back to desktop, any open windows get resized down.
If I task switch too many times (unpredictable from 4-20 times) F4 BMS 4.33 U3 will stop responding causing black screen.
Task Manager kill F4 leaves my toolbar in the bottom third of the screen. Forcing a temporary desktop rez change fixes this.
Is there a game resolution setting more friendly to the desktop than using the same native resolution?
In all my other games, setting both game and desktop to native works flawlessly.

I run the exact same OS and Reso. Don’t have that issue at all.
The 2D menu window does not run at desktop resolution regardless of 3D render resolution setting. I think it’s 1024x768 or something like that.
If task switching is commonly done I recommend running BMS windowed.
Thanks Federf. I suspected this. Pursuing another issue related to playing F4 vids on 64 bit, I discovered installing the 64 bit ffdshow solved the window resizing on task switching (unexpected) as well. Hopefully this will also have a positive effect on the occasional task switching freezes.

Yeap it does that… Alt Tabbing and BMS are not friends…
