    Minimize Hack!

    Last night I finished leveling to 50 with my skellimancer and was doing anya quest. I only had the ancients way wp so I was walking back from there when a sorc (I think) joined and said 'anya wp up'. Being a little stoned and drunk I didn't think twice and jumped into her tp. My screen instantly minimized and I couldn't even move my mouse down to the bottom of my screen. I alt-tabbed back and was dead.

    I definitely did not alt tab out but my screen minimized the moment I went through the tp. Everyone please be extra careful because there is no way to recover from this. I had a belt full of full rejuvs and no way to take them.

    Why is it always a hack when you die unexpectedly?

    no offense, but theres no way someone can make you minimize by taking their tp. you could have alt+tabbed accidentally, a program could have loaded itself or plenty of other things.

    Just the other day the screen minimized when i was playing diablo. Apparently i had some auto-update virus thing that needed to be checked. Thank god i wasnt amoung monsters.

    Maybe, just maybe, this had something to with it? :buddies:

    People minimize the game by mistake all the time when they are sober, one can only surmise it would be much easier to do so by mistake when a person is not sober.

    I do that all the time, and I have xp pro and sometimes when i do that my mouse goes "bye bye" so I have to go ctrl alt del, and then and only then I get the mouse pointer back. So you could of(most likey) have done what I do all the time since you were stoned and drunk or you passed out hitting your face on the keyboard hitting alt tab. (just joking) If you have xp then you have done what I do all the time, if not well boo, it was the ghost.

    if your keyboard has the windows bottom and you hit it you will minimize diablo. I had problems with this with my keyboard since it was right next to alt. But I just took the key out.

    You know how you prevent accidents in the future?

    Do what I did.

    Flathead Screwdriver + (2 x Windows keys) = No more problems

    And turn of all virus protection and networking software before playing.

    If you play in windowed mode, and go to click the tp and click near the outer edge of the window, it minimizes.

    That's why someone posted months ago a link to the site where you download

    "I hate this key" program. It works for me.

    I'm 99% sure I posted that, its a very useful program and it disables the windows key and if you pay it will also do some fancy things but...

    windows key is the only thing I care about, and my keyboard still looks nice :)

    popping out the windows key isnt really neccesary, all u gotta do is slide a thick piece of paper underneath key and then put the other end underneath keyboard.then voila no ugly dark spot where crusty parts of junk food fall out of :thanks:

    I only pulled out the left Windows key (with my Leatherman). My keyboard doesn't use springs so I can easily just pop the key back in should I ever get the desire to.

    You could always learn to type/play without hitting the windows key...
    I love the key, makes opening apps so much quicker, better than ctrl+alt+key crap.

    I haven't disabled mine in any way yet, though it has happened that I've minimized my game a few times, it being next to ALT and all. The undoubtably biggest impact on gaming that key had, was when it was "introduced" on most keyboards during the end of the DOOM2 era. You had to be acrobatic to play efficiently using strafe and shooting at the same time... Oh, those were the days.

    Aaah the good old days.. I once saw one of the sickest doom2 players ever (Tex, playing for Chopstick Ninjas). He knew all the tricks (rocketjumping, headshooting, etc.) and he only played with keyboard! Needless to say he got even better when he started using the mouse :eek:

    Possibly....

    Spyware? Now I don't know if it's even a possibility of a problem, but I know a friend of mine had a metric *bleep*ton of it on his computer and he was getting alt-tabbed out randomly. Cleared it out and the problem appeared to have stopped.
