Post Problem with ZSNES & Windows 7
The problem I am having is that at random points when I am playing a game the screen will automatically minimize. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium with nVidia GEFORCE GT540M, dual core cpu 2.30 GHz. Beyond on that I am not certain what other information may be needed. When I used this software on XP I never encountered a problem like this. My DirectX is the most current release available.

So any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: There is really no need to use fonts and colors like that.

Probably a bg program stealing focus.

The only other thing that was running is the antivirus scanner. I wasn't online at the time or using another program such as jetAudio. So I have no idea what would be using the large focus you are speaking of....

What he's suggesting is that there's a background application that causing that behavior. Consider closing unneeded applications. Even something like Winamp or your favorite IM app could be causing something like that.

Winamp and other music apps tend to cause music to not play or play correctly. IM apps tend to steal focus by default when receiving messages.

Depending on your control choices, it's also possible you're hitting one of the new window management hotkeys in Win7.

I am using a PlayStation 3 controller and not touching any keys while playing the game. I thought it might be just the software so I tried the other popular emulator. It did the same thing. So I will look at all the items that are active and shut them down. Hopefully your suggestions will stopt his occurence from happening again.

I have the same thing going on with my PS1 emulator.

Thanks for the prompt replies to my question.

dude seriously, stop making your font freaking huge and that god awful shade of green. We can see the default font perfectly fine, that's why we all use it.

I thank those that offered there help to me with the problem I had. To the one that seemed he needed to register a complaint take it up with the moderator. To the moderator I apologize for any hardships that the font size and colour may have caused.

I will withdraw as a member of this forum
