Problem.
I am using a windows 8 computar so it has a button that goes to the main menu. I use this button every time i want to go back to the desktop when im playig a game. Recently, whenever i do this on symphony, it does not let me. It only let's me when the game is paused and on the shift + control steam. When i do it, my desktop freezes and im forced to turn off my computar. Any help?

OS: Windows XP SP3 / Vista / 7

Just might not be optimized for Windows 8..

Mmm... that is a weird issue. We did not do much testing on Windows 8 (as pointed out in the req's). Is anyone else using Windows 8 running into this issue?

Thanks,

I suggest using the in-game "Quit to Windows" function instead. In fact, I have to recommend that for everything you play. Quitting games without using their own quit features leaves you running the risk that the game won't drop all of the memory it was using, which means you'd have to reboot to get it back.


To Empty Clip - The Windows 8 API's implementation of the button he's talking about doesn't send the same method as the Close button, and so you'd have to add some code to check for the button and then run any game end cleanup you want to run should the button be pressed. It's the Windows key that opens the start menu, and hangs most games. Honestly, my suggestion would be to disable the stupid thing, as it can cause all kinds of errant behavior.

I've also had a problem where I installed the game and it refuses to launch.
