I have no idea how you guys would actually debug this one, but currently when I'm recording the Sumo Showdown occasionally the game will just minimise without warning. Only happens when I record and doesn't happen with any other game. I use Bandicam to record if that helps. :)

Dude I have Bandicam too so will attempt to make it happen to me, how long into recording does it happen generally?

it varies but it's happened usually by the 20 minute mark. I do a fair bit of pre and post but it doesn't corrupt videos, just stops the recording (it can be seen happening is a few of my videos and apart from being annoying just looks unprofessional).

I'll let you know what I find man!

In the mean time download OBS you can get that to record to file in the mean time and it's free!

Hmm... Yeah I record with OBS and I've not noticed this. If you can figure out some more details for repro steps we can take a look at it. We've not seen this happen on our machines.

This random minimizing happens to me too. Might be because I have a second screen and might click over there accidentally? Not sure. Doesn't happen early, after I just start the game.

Was happening in the Kickstarter demo too.

I have a second screen too but definitely not clicking offscreen, fullscreen games don't allow you to click off them.
