Try not using the same resolution in Windows and OFP.

What OS you using? I use XP, I prefer desktop and game resolution identical, alt+tabbing like that causes you to see the mouse pointer but not go to desktop, what I do to get around that is to press windows key+L, this will either take you to fast switch windows users or to lock your machine, either way you either click cancel or click on your windows account name and you're back at the desktop, worth trying
PS When I say "lock your machine" I don't mean it locks up so you have to reboot, I mean it locks it so your mom can't find your bikini model collection, just wanted to clarify that
If someone reports an issue/complains about the Alpha etc, replying in the thread "dude it's an alpha" doesn't really help anyone! Point them to the Arma3 Alpha feedback tracker instead please!
Please do not PM or Email me directly about your CD Key issues, follow the guidance in this thread instead.
Ok im using xp all try matching the res for it and see if that helps! bikini modles... I think those are mine..and meh dads not hers ***
Thanks a ton some times it alt tabs some times i have to use the windows+L but at least I can get to the desk top
I used to have this prob all the time back in the geforce two days. I always seemed to me that the card had trouble changing resolutions. with my geforce 4 mx i have no trouble, occasionally it will crash ofp.
