Game pauses on alt tab (Streaming)
All of the soldak games seems to pause when youalt tab out. I have my stream up on my cellphone and when I alt tab, everything stops.

If I play fullscreen mode it black screens on alt tab and pauses.

If I play windowed with borders it just pauses.

Anyway to fiddle with the settings to stop this from happening?

Yeah, you can turn that off. Change the value for pauseWhenInactive to 0. You can find that var in your user.cfg file which is probably in C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\DroxOperative2\User

Unfortunately, that didnt work for me. But it isnt a soldak specific issue. Most of my steam games, when I alt tab out, it black screens on my stream or it runs at like 5 FPS.

Some games have a literal option to have background FPS but even maxed it doesnt solve my issue.

Im looking for a bigger solution that works across all my games. It might be a steam issue cause I tested WoW and it worked fine when I alt tab and stream.

Could be the steam overlay. Try to disable it for the game under properties in steam.
