Windows 7: Win 7 w/ Killing Floor Strange Issue.

04 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC Build 7100
Win 7 w/ Killing Floor Strange Issue.

Hello, I didn't know where to post this to be honest so feel free to move this if needed... anyways here it goes...

I have recently purchased Killing Floor and I love it, it runs GREAT on Windows 7 RC I'm using the 7100 Build, my issue is more of an annoyance than anything else, but I digress...

The problem started as of a day ago... I'll be playing Killing Floor with no problem, then all of a sudden I'll freeze for a few seconds followed by the game minimizing... I get a short glimps of my desktop in the process before the screen goes black and the game comes back up.

Sometimes it will do it 2 or 3 times in a row, and it's always at the wrong time i.e. in the middle of a fight (lol) the good thing is my performance does not suffer, but during that short glimps of desktop I will see this in my System Tray... ( It quickly goes away. )

What could be causing the game to randomly Minimize / Re-Maximize mid-game play?

Does anyone else run the game in Windows 7 with similar issues?

- Thanks.

Some of the Accessibility features in Windows use hotkeys to become enabled. Pressing the SHIFT key 5 times, for example, will activate Sticky Keys. To check all your settings (you may want to disable them unless you need them) go to your Control Panel\Ease of Access menu and change the settings.

Otherwise, I'm not sure what else could be causing that.

Do you think it's that Host Process thing popping on the Tray for that split second causing the game to minimize? By the way what is that Host Process thing? lol...

Post is redundant, is now fixed.

Killing floor freezes for 5-15 seconds in game then returns to normal, everywhere, no matter where it is (menu, in game, browser), leading to alot of frustration, especially when everyone is saying I'm too awesome to be alive, then suddenly freezing then dying.

It's, to be fair, annoyed me too much to just let it be.

*I also posted on Tripwires or whatevers forum, hopefully Zynthetic should recognize who I am actually give some light on the issue.

Edit: We have resolved this/my problem..

Desktops: Tower on desk or floor?
Just a fun thread, wondering where you guys place your computers! I personally put mine on the desk because the floor is carpet which might suck in more dust. (Tower has 5 led fans)
