View Full Version : Alt + Tab Crashes
04-10-2007, 01:27 AM
I've been fighting with this for a day or so now... Every time I alt+tab out of the game to do something (like mess with a trainer, or try to run the cheat enabler) it crashes, when I try to restore the game an error comes up (generic "this program has generated errors).
I tried out windowed mode and found that it doesn't do it then. But, I don't want to play in windowed given the resolution I've taken for speed reasons.
I'm patched to 1.2 as well, and no no-dvd cracks.
(I've tried trainers too, but they don't seem to function)
Any help would be appreciated

Since it didn't seem I was getting much in the way of assistance, I slapped together my own solution.
I had to cheat in how it was accomplished, because of the huge number of incompatibilities between microsoft's own operating systems in the worthless command console.
I thought I would post my solution here, as even if you don't have my alt+tab crash problem, it's nice to not have to leave the game to enable cheats.
What I did was create a batch file that first launches the game, then (again, cheating, but compatible with most) pings 127.0.0.1 for a delay before starting the cheat enabler.
If anyone wishes to use it, you must first place "EnableHitman1.2Cheats.exe" in the directory with the hitman executable (you could easily modify the batch so you don't need to).
After placing the cheat enabler in the right directory, open up notepad and paste this:
Then you File>Save As, set "Save as type" below filename to "All Files" and save it as something like "delay.bat" in the same directory as the cheat enabler.
Then it's just a matter of starting the .bat file. The game will launch, and once the pings finish you should hear the cheat enabler ding.
You can also create a shortcut to the .bat file and place it where you wish to start it from, and change the icon.
