    windows button....

    Today i died a horrible death. I accidently pushed the windows button ingame and when i came back.... last ball hit. Can this be turned off? I've had this more then once but this is the first fatal one. Makes me really want to use chicken...

    And that makes me really want to not help you......

    But for the sake of you not giving in to your urges to cheat, I will.

    I dont have the website, but I do have a winkey assassin...

    Its called "Winkey Assasin v1.0 (assassin is misspelled, only 1 2nd "s", at least thats how it shows up in the toolbar on the bottom) Try a google search, maybe with both spellings of "assassin", that should net you something...

    It's called "screwdriver" ^_^
    Or if you'd thought to use "google" to solve your windows related problem (novel concept, I know the first entry for
    "disable windows key" gives http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/903/ as the very first page which is a registry tweak and therefore not as dynamic as the screwdriver method...but some people might not like leaving a hole where the key should be on the keyboard.

    I can't remember the windows key doing anything - I'm playing in full screen mode.

    When i used to run Windows ME the windows key never did anything , but once I switched to XP it would minimize my screen no matter if I was in full or window mode. I took the less subtle approach for mine - screwdriver

    Oh right - am running Win98 here. At least something it's good for.

    small comfort :)

    anyway, the registry tweak works wonders and with xp you might want to use it in every other game too. ON THE OTHER HAND there ARE games (OpenGL based ones) that CANNOT be alt+tabbed outside so then if you want to minimize such a game your best bet is ctrl+alt+del and that aint guaranteed to drop the game down.

    anyway i still use it. (note: it needs rebooting before applying)
