Has anyone dealt with this issue in Windows 10? The game just randomly minimizes during gameplay. It's random but it usually happens within 10 min. With or without using nGlide or dgVoodoo it still happens.

I don't know if it's the video drivers or the fact that I have added a second monitor or malware but something fishy is going on.

I've got 3 monitors going, and getting the community version to run at all, is to only run 1. It will not no matter what, run fullscreen. I've been using the voodoo deal and that seems to work well. Any idea why it won't run fullscreen Fila? I've tried Windows 10, 8, and 8.1... tried a bunch of the compatibility settings with no luck.

So what do you mean? You have to disable from the settings the other two monitors?

What video card.

Well I reinstalled Windows 10. Played for 40min and so far so good. Let's see what happens once I gradually reinstall my programs.

Seems that a reinstall of Win 10 has worked so far. If it really is the case than I am very peeved at Win 10. I've used it for 2 years and had to reinstall the thing twice. I've only had to reinstall Win 7 twice in about 10 years or so.

Yes, disabling the 2 secondary monitors in the display settings, the game then runs, but not fullscreen... as is. Direct3D has the overlapping problem. All the drivers are up to date. I have a Nvidia 960GT graphics card. Using the voodoo deal is the the only way to get it to work correctly.

I have twin monitors and have no trouble running the game in full screen, and no random minimising! I have also had Windows 10 since it first appeared (on 3 computers) and no problems.

Actually the newer the drivers the worse the problems are :D
But if Direct3D does get engaged then it means it is running correctly (the overlapping problem seems to be more video card dependent than driver dependent).

So I can say that after I have reinstalled windows the problem has gone away.
