Attract Mode has problems with Games with Launchers
« on: August 13, 2018, 12:02:30 PM »
I am using Attract-Mode in Windows 7 for my PC-Games.

The problem i have is with a few games which use a launcher to start the game (e.g. Cube World, Minecraft, Mark of the Ninja). When i start the Game from Attract Mode the Launcher opens and gets Focus. After starting the game in the launcher the game starts correctly, but Attract Mode also restarts in the Background and plays the video of the selected game which is annoying.

Propably the launcher uses another file to start the game and then the launcher closes...so Attract Mode thinks the game is finished....and restarts. Is there some way to avoid this problem?
