Even though something may seem simplistic it may be more difficult to implement. Not to mention they might be using that as a deterrent for any third-party software / bots. Just have to wait and see.

yeah.. changing a couple of integers or floats is about on par with debugging the software structure of the entire client. Either they don't want you to alt-tab or we can just wait until the guys in charge of that part of the code gets around to fixing it. meanwhile let the team responsible for game play balance do their job and actually balance the game.

l2windows perhaps?

Oh yeah, this is a console port and they're not expected to make their PC games actually function properly on PCs. What are we thinking?

Not adding fuel to the fire or anything, but some PCs play games better on full screen so being in full screen mode and being able to alt-tab out is a good thing.

If the PC isn't "up-to-snuff" running the game in a window (even if the window is as big as the screen) might cause unnecessary problems that wouldn't show up when it is in full screen mode.

It's a lot easier to fix the alt-tab issue than to fix the game mechanics that allow the healing exploit. SE just doesn't give a crap about letting us alt-tab, but they do give a crap about people getting to max level too quickly.

Could someone please explain to me why you wouldnt just play the game windowed if you have a problem with Alt-tab.

You will probably get better performance out of your computer as well? Am I missing something?

I assume it's because of the bar that goes across the screen in windowed mode.

I use Steam to play with.. then I can just Shift+Tab and use Steams web browser. Not a perfect solution but it works for me if I just need to surf the web.
