asks you to use alt-tab to control the Task Manager
in game. On some Windows systems this can cause problems.
If you are running Windows Power Tools, try disabling
this as it can cause problems with the ALT-TAB in
game. You can disable it simply by bringing up the
Windows Task Manager (by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL simultaniously)
and terminating the task named "taskswitch.exe".
Or you can just uninstall the TaskSwitch powertoy.
If you are running any other program that uses Alt-Tab
in some special way, try disabling this.
If you are still having problems, you can press Ctrl-Alt-Tab
in game instead of Alt-Tab. It's a bit awkward but
will solve your problem until we can address it properly
in a future patch.
what do I do if I want to actually alt-tab out of
the game? My boss might see me playing Darwinia...
can minimise Darwinia by pressing alt-escape.
