Hi,

This has been happening since yesterday.
My game is minimizing itself to taskbar at very random times,
sometimes it doesn't happen for 3 minutes straight, sometimes it happens like every 10 seconds.
When i maximize again, it seems as if my plane made a far bigger leap as seems possible for the time the game was minimized.
I tried verify, cleared the cache, all to no avail.
Rebooted the pc many times, waited a day, same problem today...
No problems with other games or any other applications.

I'll bet you'll find you have a key bound to some function on your mouse, or it might be some key you're pressing?

I only use xbox controller, mouse and keyboard are not being touched during a game.
Just started happening out of the blue since yesterday.
Today it has been so bad, to the point it has become unplayable.
Don't recall any updates being installed, neither windows, neither wargaming.
Tried a complete system restore, but didn't help a bit.

do you have a wireless mouse/kb?

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I was under the impression they weren't supporting the XBOX controller.  Am I wrong?

Yup mouse and keyboard are both wireless.
Anyway just flew some missions.
Crazy bug seems to be gone for now.
Weird stuff.

Good for you!  I find when I start getting really strange bugs that Check and Repair don't fix that a deletion and new download of the game usually does fix it.

I had that happening for years now. It will do that a couple of times a month. Learned to be quick resizing game. I do not have wireless devices.

 Try going into "General" under the "Settings" and disable both the "Windows" and "Alt-Tab" keys during battle, even if you aren't using the keyboard for WOWP it's possible you might have a sticky key or two that is causing the screen to minimize. I had this issue once with an old keyboard that the Windows key was acting wonky.

I would second this recommendation. The described issue seems to be related to either system messages that can minimize the game or clicking keys that minimize the window. If disabling the keys don't work, please contact our Customer Support.

It was ok for ten days, but out of the blue it has started to happen again since yesterday.
I have changed all batteries and replugged all of my peripherals, i have enabled both those options in settings, rebooted, cleared the cache, ...  but nothing seems to help a bit.
Will try and reinstall tonite.
This bug is driving me crazy.
It seems as if my plane moves faster than lightspeed when it minimizes.
One moment i'm starting a dive at 1600m, minimize happens, it doesn't take more than 2 seconds to maximie again, but my plane has already lawndarted.
