Thread: Console + Windowed Mode binding

    Console + Windowed Mode binding

    Hey,

    As far as I know, ETQW doesn't support direct Alt+Tab by default. It is possible to enable quick switch to windowed mode, then activate console and lastly Alt+Tab;

    https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Enemy_..._while_in-game

    I am pretty sure there are third party tools to for proper Alt+Tab but I rather prefer my game to remain as it is. As I tried on macOS port, it is possible to bind a key for related commands such as r_fullscreen and vid_restart. How about binding a key for switching to fullscreen and opening the console at the same time; so instead applying three steps {Tilde (console) + [Alt+Enter] (windowed) + [Alt+Tab]}, I can directly switch to windowed mode while console is opened, then apply [Alt+Tab]? I know, it seems a bit complicated but windowed mode binding in bindings.cfg on Mac is like that;

    Code:
    bind "F9" "toggle r_fullscreen; vid_restart" "" "default"
    Is it possible to include open console command to that line?

    Thanks.

    There used to be a setting somewhere that allowed regular alt tabbing out of ETQW...
    If only it wasn't 6 years ago since I played this game I might remember what it was >.>

    Sorry, no: Don't. I thought you were talking about ET, not ET:QW. So wrong game minimizer ;-)
    Deleting post now to avoid confusion.

    in windows xp, after you press ALT+ENTER
    you can press CTRL+ALT+DEL to open task manager

    then you switch to the 1st tab (the one listing programs/applications - not processes)
    and you can right click on ETQW and choose "minimize"

    not sure if you can do that on latest windows versions

    Well, Console + Windowed + (Alt+Tab) seems safer than consulting task manager. Besides, I am using Linux, things are a bit different here. It should be Ctrl+Shift+Esc in post-Windows XP releases.
