  • Minimize window causes weird bugs on win xp

    When I minimize the game window (Ctrl + Esc), and later on I resize it to full screen, it causes some weird bugs:
    - Life bars over creeps and heroes won't display.
    - Blog, news, updates, learn, and some other frontpage sections will display some weird paint-made picture.

    That's a really strange bug, since it only affects my desktop, which runs on win xp. I haven't been able to reproduce it on my laptop, which runs on win 7.

    System specs of my desktop:
    - Win XP, SP3
    - AMD Athlon(tm) 64x2 Dual Core Processor 6000+, 3.02 GHz, 3.00 GB RAM
    - ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series

      Try using borderless window mode in video settings. And to go to another window, you can use the windows key to do it. As for desktop its win+d.
