Game Minimized and will not come back.

Postby NunuIsAllINeed » Sat Dec 27, 2014 6:03 pm

I have been playing this for ages, 92 hours! Now suddenly it refused to become unminimzed. I load it up, it plays the start cinematic for a moment then minimizes itself and wont come back. Its still running, I can hear the cinematic sounds, and hasn't crashed as when I Ctrl + Alt +Del it still says "running".

I am on Steam, my PC is way above minimum requirements and I don't think its updated recently. How do I make it work again? =[

I've had this happen a number of times but usually quitting and restarting, sometimes multiple times, does the trick. Perhaps not for you.

Did you try pressing the ALT+TAB key combo a few times?

This will drop you to the desktop screen and back again when running full-screen software. Sometime this can kick the minimized screen into a normal mode.

What version of Windows are you running?

Did you set your cotn.exe file to "run as administrator"?

Did you recently install some new software that might be conflicting with Cotn?

Run the STEAM verification utlity on COTN from you Steam account. Maybe one of the files is corrupted and this will force STEAM to correct the problem.

Thanks! Running as administrator and a PC restart fixed it!
