Descriptive Problem Summary:The game wont popup when I click it in the taskbar.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:1.Open a game and minimize it.
2.Close the game.
3.Re-open it.
Once it opens, it will open minimized, and u keep clicking and nothing seems to want to come up anymore.

In my case, I updated byond, opened DreamDaemon, clicked the yellow join button from there, and it was opened up minimized. Then I noticed, if I close the game while it is minimized, right click tray icon and click close while it is minimized, then rejoin, it'll start minimized and not want to come up, but, if I close it while it's up, it'll come up.

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
Not Applicable

Expected Results:It will come up.

Actual Results:It doesn't come up.

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?Every Time
In other games?Yes
In other user accounts?Yes
On other computers?Yes

When does the problem NOT occur?When you don't minimize the game and then close it, close it while it is up on ur screen.

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit to download old versions for testing.)
Not Sure, I never saw bug before, and since I happened to close it this way to update it, I would guess that I do it often, so it maybe only to the newer version.

Workarounds:If it does happen, Right click the window, and click options & messages, but all the other windows with it, such as to choose char in the game dont come up to the front when u do that, so you have to basically re-open game.

Or just close game while it's up only.
it will not launch
In my case, the game launches, but it just wont come up, like when i click it in taskbar, it just doesnt come up, and it stays minimized, to make it come up, i right click the taskbar icon, and click options & messages, then re-launch cause the popup for picking char doesn't also come up, but, if i didn't minimized when it was closed, then it works fine.
No problems here (Windows 7 Ultimate x64), maybe it's a skin problem?
My skin does not have a custom minimize/restore or anything, it only has added icon sizes of 64*64 and 96*96 under those options, nothing else, so, unless those fucked it up somehow, not an games skin issue.

The thing was fixed specifically for windows 7 in the latest version, so I am guessing it broke it for Windows Vista.
It would go to argue that it starting minimized is not a good behavior, so, basically, the saving code needs changed some way to make it come up correctly after being closed while it was minimized.

So, maybe it doesn't work for you Nielz, but, you just don't understand when the bug occurs, many people have told me that I am horrible at explaining things.

Well, here's what I did:
I start a game, I minimize it, I rightclick its taskbar tab and click on the 'close window' thing. That's what you meant, right? Which other way is there to close a minimized game? I assume you don't mean to close it by end-tasking it in the task manager?
Well, then, OK, it does work on urs, u did get what I was explaining...yea, thats what i meant...there was a specific fix for Windows 7, so I am guessing that fix is why mine started breaking.
I found another work-around, simply clicking on the restore button in the right click menu will bring the window up, but just simply clicking the menu button wont, when it starts up minimized on windows vista here.

Also, in the saved data for the skin or whatever, when it closes minimized, it saves this. = "true"

This is why it comes up minimized, which is quite messed up behavior considering that most ppl bringing up a game want to see it and play it, plus, it's not hard to minimize after anyways, if for some odd reason they wanted it minimized as it opened.
