Must close to play games
« on: May 18, 2008, 10:19:53 AM »
I have to close the program to play games in full screen mode.

Is there a way to make certain programs exempt from the restrictions of desktop coral?

there is no way to do that, BUT it could be possible to:
1) make it easy to manually disable/re-enable desktop coral temporarily.
2) make desktop coral detect when a full screen app starts and disable itself automatically when it does.

There's got to be a way!!

I also use MobyDock DX. One of it's features is to stay on top of everything, but it doesn't interfere with full screen games.

I don't know anything about program coding, but I'm assuming it's possible for you to look into their code to see how that works. As long as that's not illegal!

Apparently I was wrong. At first I thought there was a problem because it was glitchy at first, but once the game was fully loaded it worked fine. So it looks like its working fine...good job.
