  1. This kind of problem.
    Alt+Tab works with every other game expect Quake2, but why?
    Any ideas? When i press alt + tab in q2, nothing happens...
    I would be very pleassed if someone can help me...

    Quake2 uses open gl as far as i know and the game might be using insruction sets that might be different to other games. Using alt tab is a strenuous task for some pcs as it has to dump all the info from the ram and load the next window,

    Yes I have the same problem with Quake2. When I had windows 2000 and 98 I could alt-tab out of quake2, but not in windows XP!

    Any ideas? I use Default OpenGL (geforce3) setting.
