[FIXED]EE keeps minimizing and wont maximize,

Postby President Obama » Sat Jun 05, 2010 9:15 am

Whenever I open ee, it instantly minimizes and I have to click it 20+ times until I click a button in the blackness before it minimizes again.

Like i start ee it minimizes I click ee really fast it goes to maximize, the screen goes black but if I keep clicking and hit any option ee will appear but if I dont it minimizes. Now this hasn't worried me until now.

Now its doing it anytime it has to load, like I hit scenario editor it does it, test a scen in scenario editor it does, join a game it does it and if I get into a game just as the game starts it does it.

I just ran it in compatibility mode before and that did shit all. I'm using Windows 7 X64. I need to fix this quickly so I can start work on my tutorials for scenarios.

EDIT: I fixed it, it was caused by firefox being open, how annoying and weird.

Edit by lightnessking: Chrome also causes this problem read; http://www.gog.com/en/forum/empire_eart ... _windows_7

same problem. But just while starting eec or starting a game. It started after installing patch etc. (not the new one)

I noticed that it more likely happens in eec.

Ps: reinstalling doesn't fix the problem.

Video Card drives are always up to date, though I always have Firefox open so I might try exiting it and see what happens.

I had an original G15, got tired of it though. The key layout is horrid, you dont really realize though until you try and type really fast. I went and got a lycosa when I found out my G15 was useless at typing fast.

Oh thanks, I was getting annoyed with having to close all my tabs and exit firefox. I might be ditching FF soon anyway, its been so shitta lately. It like freezes and then unfreezes constantly, I might look into google chrome, its just they dont have the awesome add ons.

Edited first post, Chrome also causes this problem. (Of course not for everyone.)
