Another great feature would be the minimize command. I'm sure you've seen ET minimizer. It's also built into the latest versions of Redsector's Jaymod enhmod. So you can just use /minimize and minimize the game, without needing ET minimizer.

I have it bound to a key in my autoexec.cfg and it's nice to not have a separate program to activate when I start ET.

Just a thought.

It's a good thought. I can't say will it be added. Probably it will not be supported by all platforms if implemented.

If it was implemented it would be in windows for starters, because it's the most popular platform. But since I play on linux I can do something like this for linux. There is no timeframe for this for now however.

Hello guys,

 

With Windows 10, I think it is now time to have a built-in minimizer in silEnT mod.

 

When on XP or Seven, I used Minimizor (from http://idcation.com) with success on 99% games (not only Quake3 ^^).

But now, this software thinks that Win10 desktop is ... a game and fails.

 

And more than that, it is more efficient to have it built-in in the game than in another software that only 'experienced' players know.

 

V55

 

PS: I've just tried the ET-Minimizer (from http://etconfig.net) but KO.

I'm not sure if you already tried it or even if it isn't one of the two you mentioned, but back when I played under Windows, I used etmini.exe. Might be worth a try.

You can minimize the game with no problem on ET Legacy.

Thanks Krauersaut I've just tried your etmin.exe but doesn't work ( in fact, same software as ET-Minimizer )

 

Thanks Dragonji but Legacy and french keyboards (AZERTY) oblige to change settings every time you change server, and Textures of players seem to be modified, maybe I will test more in-depth when 2.73 will be soon out xD

 

Concerning my beloved Minimizor, I've let a message at Support of http://idcation.com, but no response for the moment​.

 

 

EDIT: ​I can't edit my previous post : right address is idcation.com not idaction.com

Thanks, but ALT-TAB doesn't work (for me only ?) it shows me other programs but keep remaining on ET full-screened ...

 

Rel!c, does-it work (for you) when ET is in full-screen (ie not windowed) ?

If we want ET to live for ever, we must have an easy software, running on a Windows OS at 95%.

 

@Dragonj you are right, even jut for minimizing feature, ET:Legacy is the only solution, can not find other way.

 

@Rel!c please confirm the ALT-TAB fails on Win10?

I use minimizor 2.0 on x64 windows 10 and et v2.60b with no trouble, you have to run it as admin.

Thanks for info !

I think it's normal: minimizor-32bits can not see win10 desktop because it runs in another memory-context   xD

Sure I'll migrate after buying a SSHD disk (hybrid SSD)

Don't go for SSHD. Either buy a small SSD and additional HDD, or only a big HDD. SSHD is just a product of smart marketing and does not provide any additional performance gains over HDD.

I dont know much about modding or if this info even is helpful for the silent team but /min was successfully ported into the etjump mod so its possible (from what I can logically see).

It's completely useless as you can with ease minimize the game using Alt+Tab on ET Legacy.

It is not useless. I use it all the time. I know others who bind it to a key for quick "BOSS" key (at work)
