Default SEV Minimize

After a long time without trying SEV (i always prefer SEIV) i installed SEV again, applied the latest patches, the balanc emod, and the Small Systems "sub-mod".

The game is working fine except for an annoying behavior: every time i confirm something clicking one of the lower left buttons (the End Turn, confirming a ship design, etc.) the game minimizes!

If i restore the game it appears like i didn´t clicked the button, then i click again and it goes normally...

I noticed that it only happens when i click in a button located in the lower left region of the screen...

Any idea what can be happening?

Sounds like you've got some other app with a popup that is stealing the clicks even though SE5 is winning the fight to draw on the screen.

Try running in windowed mode so you can move the window and see what's going on.

Lower right is often where you'll get those silly sliding popups from certain messenger apps and av programs.

Default Re: SEV Minimize

Just to inform that i resolved the problem... I had the taskbar set to autohide and that was somehow affecting SEV, after i deactivated the autohiding of the taskbar SEV stopped minimizing when i clicked buttons in the lower right of the screen....

BTW: i have WinXP Pro with SP3, don´t know if the same happens with other OSs.

Thanks
