I was wondering if anyone else had this problem...When I use Alt-Tab to "task switch" out of FS2k2 (for example to run ActiveSky or RWControl for VATSIM, or even to check email), and then use Alt-Tab to return to FS2k2, my cockpit view is locked, and the graphics are scrambled up. The plane is still flying, as indicated by the cockpit instruments that still work. I can exit the flight, create a new flight, change planes, change locations, and the locked and scrambled cockpit view will persist. It stays this way until I exit FS2k2 and restart.
Obviously, the problem is that programs like RWControl and Activesky require FS2k2 to be running while they operate, or require a task-switch during their operation. So, I can't just load everything I need before I launch Fs2k2. Until this is fixed I can't use any of my neat toys and tools (I LOVE ActiveSky) while I fly.
I think this all started right around when I upgraded to DirectX 9.0. Has anyone else experience this or a similar issue? What did you do to fix it?
