Desktop window restore minimize the game

Related app/team name (not a must if you want to keep it private): Trucky

Issue Description:
Restoring the Desktop window (native) while the game is running minimize the game (alt+tab)

When the game starts (and the app starts under it) i open the Desktop window, if the game is running, minimize it immediately. On a discrete number of user, the game minimize.

Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce):
Impact for my app: [e.g. x% of the users complained about it, it’s a show-stopper]: Mid
Do you currently have a workaround?

Unfortunately the issue is not easily reproducible because it doesnt appear on all users or doesnt seem to be related to hardware or monitor configuration.

We advice the user to open the app from Desktop before launch the game.

The best thing i can ask for, is to have an SDK function to restore the window ALREADY minimized (initial state not normal).

does you desktop window has ‘grab_focus_on_desktop:false’ manifest flag?

it should? :slight_smile:

and try it

thanks Elad.
I’ve deployed a version with the manifest flag. let’s see what users report

@EladBahar , the manifest flag didnt worked. The game continue to be minimized

I’ve deployed the version with DesktopWindow and SecondMonitorWindow with grab_focus_on_desktop:false, i’ll let you know if i’ll receive other reports.

@EladBahar also with the manifest.flag Trucky opening continue to grab focus to the game.

Users are complaining, a lot. We have to find a final solution.

@NacoTaco don’t know why has been flaged as game “apex” but it’s not Apex, is related to ETS2\ATS.

And btw, any update?
