A few games minimize when the menu launches... any suggestions? I will be updating directx and the video drivers tonight. I just want to make sure that there isnt anything else I could try.

Raven shield and Lionhart.

This is a fresh install of XP with all of the driver updates and patches. Radeon 9600 pro and a P4 2.4.

you could try the powertools from microsoft to disable windows applications stealing focus

its located in the general tab of tweak ui (do a google)

Could possibly be the result of some sort of monitor refresh rate conflicts. That may be a direction to pursue. With XP and sp1 these can be set/over -ridden for D3D games (but not OpenGL). Does ATI (or someone) have some sort of refeshrate utilty?

i use an app called reforce. it changes the monitor drivers to a fixed rate. only catch is.. you have to install the correct monitor driver 1st.

its independant of all video cards.

ie it's perfect so long as you know the max rates...
