Is there a way to make DarkFix less invasive ?
Whenever some kind of error occurs, it becomes impossible to just close the application because DarkFix is force-grabbing application focus, even when opening up the Task Manager ..
The only way to recover from some error ( that isn't even visible because DarkFix has of course grabbed focus ) is to log out and back in as a user, which ends up closing every other application that might have been open.
It would be nice if DarkFix would be more lenient in this regard.
As pointed out in an earlier post, the way the darkfix steals your application focus, preventing you from minimizing, is pretty irritating and I wish something could be done about it.
Yeah I had that same problem. I've not found a way to make it take the alt+tab without locking me up, but I did figure a way to at least recover my windows session without logging out or hard resetting:
I ended up writing an autohotkey script that remaps one keyboard key (I used the "Break" key) to run taskkill.exe /IM darkfix.exe
the code is:
Run taskkill.exe /IM darkfix.exe
this needs to be put into a text file with .ahk extension (and you need autohotkey installed obviously).
I should point out I actually use nircmd instead of the windows native "taskkill", but it's the same deal (except smoother).
Also, I actually came here to add my lament: the patch seems to work fine for the most part, but SOMETIMES it's incredibly difficult to not die from half a second of getting shot at. I assume this means the game runs at inconsistent speeds for me, using darkfix.exe.. I did not use any compatibility options for the first 5-10 hours, but Ive tried a few now, and they are basically the same.
My suspicion is, if I recall correctly, the difficulty sort of auto-adjusts upwards the more kills/missions you have flown. I guess the only reason I didn't notice it being impossibly hard due to speed is, because they weren't shooting that accurately before.
But now I'm like 150 kills in - and they kill me in 2 seconds flat.. unplayable.. :(
