I may be entirely dense here and missing something, though how is this any different than alt-tabbing? I know it's transparent/overlay etc. However, if you're trying to 'browse' a web-page while in game, then you need to use the mouse(most people anyways...) but what percentage of games have a mouse icon while you're playing it? With the exception to RPG/MMO, there is no cursor.
In order to bring up the cursor, you have to enable it, through a hotkey. Doing so, switches the CPU priority to the browser, a.k.a. a faux-process window? Hence, you're still technically "alt-tabbing."
For a list of common problems associated with this program :
-GG_Live.exe half or fully loads one cores, slowing anything you attempt to run simultaneously. HL2 Deathmatch runs at 13FPS instead of its usual 90+, and the optimization options have no noticeable effect(as an example, and that's WITH 'Game" mode enabled).
-Mouse wheel scrolling works intermittently at best, not at all most of the time (at desktop, you can scroll up, but not down?)
-Rogue cannot be run simultaneously with ATI Tray Tool - the latter must be shut down for Rogue to run. Upon testing it became apparent that Rogue is conflicting with ATI Tray Tool's overlay function (used to display FPS ingame, among other things) and disabling this part of ATT allows both to run in tandem.
-Even in the very limited number of games you can get the overlay to display correctly, half the time you can't interact with the window other than dragging it around.
-The program seems entirely devoid of configuration options - simple things such as proxy and security settings are nowhere to be found.
-Latency is inconsistent, and sometimes noticeable slower than a normal browsing session, with a proper browser.
The second to last one concerns me the most. While a hard-firewall should handle the majority of your security issues; not being able to manage bookmarks, edit, adjust or change browser settings is aggrivating. I'd love to be able to change the default key binding so that it doesn't conflict with FRAPS, without having to use a keyboard script to do it...
Neat idea, but I can see why noone's published it in the past, as it's just a limited transparent browser. I imagine there's people out there that have reworked their FireFox to do the same thing...
Awsome game I wish i could get it but parent are fags and they dont't let me get M games.
You didn't call your parents fags
You didn't call yourself "hacker" on the internet
You learned to spell "awesome" and "assassin"
they might think you are mature enough to get the game. -Davidelmo
