I've had this issue since I updated my computer:


I can't play on windowed mode, which is not an issue at all, but I can't alt tab out from the game.


When I alt tab back again to the game it just doesn't display it anymore, it sounds the music and everything but doesn't display the game anymore and it's annoying, cause if I have to alt tab or a pop-up appears and it accidentaly makes me leave the game i can't continue playing.


I have gamemd.exe, syringe.exe and MentalOmegaClient.exe on compatibility and admin rights.


My laptop specs are:


Windows 10

CPU: i5-6300HQ

8GB Ram DDR4

GPU: Nvidia GTX 950 4GB

Brand: Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk


If anyone has such issue would be nice to get some feedback to see if I can solve the problem.


PD: I use TS-DDRAW. Other renderers doesn't work.

If you absolutely have to change focus from MO to some other program, run it in a window. The issue you might be having with that is that you didn't set gamemo.exe to run in 16-bit colour mode.

try using TS-DDRAW renderer in options, it allows me to alt-tab and use Steam's overlay on Win 10
