Since i switched from Win2000 to WinXP i can not minimize OpenArena, which is really annoying when I want to change MP3s or talk to someone on IRC to get their ass on the server.
I Made a little tool for that. Run it before you run openarena, then minimize OpenArena with CTRL + Q. (It uses windows messages, so it won't run under linux).

Since I installed OA 0.7.6 (setup version) I can minimize the game without any problem :-)

i de-installed OA 0.7.6 and re-installed 0.7.1, because 0.7.6 has bugs imo and I have to change too much stuff "by hand" (like the movement stuff).

they fixed the minimizing issue in 0.7.6 but that's the only good thing about it.

so I'm very happy with your little tool joki =)
thx for sharing!

Yes, it will cause the whole engine to reload, and it will reload again, when i return to full screen, after i check my stuff on irc or winamp. Well, don't use it!

I can press the the left windows button and sends OA to the background, can#t remember trying this with Q3. I once thought of an idea of trying to open a server/playerlist from there but these f****** nub updates have taken up most peoples time

It worked for me too, when I was still using Win2000. Now it works only with 0.7.6 for me. Nvm.
