          Hardware
          CPU Intel i5 760
          4GB RAM DDR3
          Video: GTX 560 , 1GB GDR5 @ 512 bits
          S.O.: dual boot: Windows7 and windows 10 - so CF was tested on both windows on same config

          This happend to me 2 weeks ago under windows7 and windows 10 - CF freeze , stop responding or just exit when i try ALT+TAB
          (usefull to work on TS3 - sw channels or move players)

          My personal fix found for windows7 and windows 10:
          Right click on CF shortcut, choose compatibility mode - select windows 7 (even you are under win7 ! ) , also on bottom check box for option : Run this program as adminitrator

          Now is alt-tab work right under windows7, still under windows 10 desktop remains on 800x600 sometimes as long CF is running, but no more crash or freeze

            Its not that it crashes for me, its just that whenever I ALT+TAB sometimes my game screen just turns black and all I can see is the game HUD and the char weapons / hands. Whenever that happens, I need to use a weapon with a zoom otion ( DE Scope, snipers, etc)

                      Crash details:

                      CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4200U
                      Video Card: Built-in
                      RAM: 8 GB
                      Operating System: Windows 10 Home
                      When the crash occurred: Every time exiting the game through in-game Exit menu button
                      Where the crash occurred: in-game
                      Does the issue happen every time? When the game first run and exit no crash, but after 2nd and multiple exits it occurs.
                      If yes to the above, does it also happen on other computers? I don't have any PC than the one I am currently using.

                        Exactly this. i had like yesterday started around 40 games and i ended around 2 games. i had 32 times that cf shut itself down and 4 times that i got a disconnection.

                        When are you guys for once making the servers and the game better?

                        Because of the lack of a good server people gonna stop this game and then you guys will lose money...

                            Operating System: Windows 10 (I use the windows 8 compatibility settings on CF and it helps with the crashes)
                            When the crash occurred: Haven't had one since I switched back to Windows 8 on CF
                            Where the crash occurred: ?
                            Does the issue happen every time? It doesn't happen every time, but frequently enough that I stopped trying to Alt-Tab
                            If yes to the above, does it also happen on other computers? Not sure, haven't tried any other computers.

                              Some computers just can’t alt/tab out of crossfire. A different way of alt/tabbing is just having a new window you can go to while playing crossfire.
