Alt tabbing out, makes the game black?
Hello, since the game cant go windowed mode when it's from steam.
And when you alt tab out game goes black, anyone got a solution for this?

To make the game windowed mode, or fix the black screen issue when tabbing?

Thaanks in advance!

Well sometimes it works when I wait about 20 seconds before I alt tab. I have this issue on my pc only.

Laptop: No problem with black screen when tabbing back, but sometimes it randomly saids when I tab back: Mirror's edge doesn't work anymore!

ALT+TAB-ing some games crashes them, and makes them freeze a times.

Same issues here, using Windows 8 x64.

Considering DICE dropped support for this game long time ago, chances are it won't be fixed.

Not that it makes a difference, but I'm having this issue, too. Alt-tab makes the game stop responding.

This is true. With PhysX enabled, I cannot ALT TAB out (game locks up, black screen etc).

But it really sucks, cause the PhysX is beautiful in the game!

Can anyone confirm it happens only in this game, or other games with PhysX as well?
