Game minimizes only while in combat
Reviewed, NormalPublic


This bug/error only happens when in combat (mostly hand-to-hand melee combat).

Example: Zombie sees me and starts running to me. I select a weapon (or not) and press and hold RMB to engage the weapon. Then I press LMB to do a strike. And then almost always the game minimizes to desktop so I have to click on the icon to get back to the game. Meanwhile I get damaged/hit resulting in bleeding and so on. This happens with NPC and human controled characters.

But! I cannot reproduce this while not in combat! So lets say I'm alone somewhere and I do exactly the same things the game won't minimize.

Hello Dolenc990.
Is it possible that you are pressing one of the following shortcuts by accident?


Hello! No. It does look like pressing Alt+Tab but I dont have fingers there. I did try this out and it happens only with mouse clicks...

Dolenc, try to make sure your viewing mode in the settings is on "fullscreen" and not "windowed" , then try to replicate this bug again.

Hello! I checked, it was set on "Windowed". I will try to replicate the bug in "Fullscreen" setting.

Hello! Looks like it is working now. Thanks!

Nice! Glad to hear it mate

Hello! Ok so I played the game a little. Fighting zombies works fine, but when I fight real players it still goes to desktop...

Hmm okay that is strange. Personally I have never heard of this bug (and I play a LOT of dayz) sounds like it could be something on your end rather than a game bug, maybe you have some kind of custom keybind for switching to desktop or some button on your keyboard you are hitting by mistake? Other than that I would recommend the standard "verify your game files and if that doesn't work, reinstall the game" procedure....usually this will fix like 90% of dayz issues (from a players perspective, I'm not a dev or anything)

Ok so I deleted the Logitech mouse software and it looks like it is working now. I'll come back if this doesnt help
