    Hi, I have tried to get a BR entered for this for some time but have failed to get it confirmed by dev's. It's a very annoying issue and one that other games I play don't have. I also haven't been playing much recently so I don't know if it is a actual bug or not, yet.

    blocker - no, but I think it's only on Steam version
    describe - in my dual monitor setup on Win, with Sota full screen in one monitor and a browser open in the other. If I am playing the game normally then quickly multi-task to (eg) the browser, Sota window becomes completely minimized until I alt-tab back to it.

    details - I think it's only Steam version doing this, if my memory is correct I didn't notice it pre-steam pre-alphas.

    thx

    PS would be really nice to address this QoL.

    Its not only on steam. It does it on the portalarium client as well. I dont play in full screen mode, but I wanted to see what @mike11 was talking about and I can confirm it. It does not happen in window mode.
