Hello and thank you in advance for your time and help.
The problem I'm having is that when I am playing Rival Ball, Standard Game, about every 10-15 mins the game automatically pauses and minimizes itself to the taskbar.
However if I play Rival Ball in Windowed mode the game only Pauses and does not minimize. My keyboard is protected so I know I'm not accidently hitting any keys and I have pressed all 3 buttons and used the scroll wheel but they do nothing (unless I have the laser paddle) so I do not believe it to be any of the buttons on my mouse either.
On another note, I have just recently purchased and installed Rival Ball Series 1 but it was playing fine for about a week before this started. And I uninstalled and reinstalled Rival ball and this problem is still occuring.
Installed Programs are DX-Ball 2 ver 1.2 and Rival Ball ver 1.5.5
Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 with Service Pack 2
Intel Pentium(R) 4, 2.80 GHz
384 MB Ram (Actually a little bit more but no actuall video card so some is devoted to the virtual video card.)
Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller 126.96.36.19942 (Intel(R) Extreme Graphics)
DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
And last but non-important, while playing Rival Ball if you hit the F7 key to change from Fullscreen to Windowed or vice versa your paddle and all the bricks disappear. This isn't really a problem unless you can't decide how to play before you start. The game is still playable too, just tricky without seeing anything but the ball.
