Whenever playing these two games, occasionally a pop-up will open up and it will prioritize that over the game and show that. I will then click back into my game, get into a safe spot, then click out to deal with whatever popped up. It also happens when I change it from windowed to fullscreen, as it often opens in windowed
After I have done that though, the game will stop updating the picture (sound still works, button inputs are registered, and I can hear my mouse moving around over menu buttons) after a few seconds. The only way to get it to resume is to click out and back in again, but a few seconds later it freezes the image again.
I run the game in fullscreen with two monitors, and I was wondering if there is any way to prevent this without changing those two things, as the only way to fix it is to quit and restart the game.
