Game crashing when tabbing out with phone/chat open

Recommended Posts

Hassann    1

Title says it all really. When I try to tab out with my phone GUI open or my chat bar open, tabbing back in causes the game to either freeze on the pause menu or crash. I posted a bug report but Nervous couldn’t reproduce the bugs. I’m guessing this is more of a me problem, but surely I’m not the only one it happens to. Any fixes?
 

I’ll put the steps down and you guys can see if it happens to yourself. 
 

1. Open phone or press T to open the chat.

2. Alt - tab

3. Alt -tab again to go into the game. 
4. Game should crash or be stuck on the pause menu.

I'll just tell you something:

When you ALT+TAB and leave the game, the background applications are in effect and when you open the game, if they are can effect the game's fps with a really big difference and cause crashes. However, that might not be the case every time.

 

Also, as stated by you about your crashes. I think your PC isnt as good to handle GTA:V at good standards, I might be wrong here but that could be true. If it is than that could be the case. If not, you can quote me and we can talk further. 

 

However, lastly I'll conclude that any of the background applications have an actual "effect" so you should not have your phone or text bar open while tabbing out. It isn't that hard.

Don't use fullscreen, use windowed borderless then you'll be fine.

I've also had this issue. Do you see two mouse cursors if you tab back in? If so, change to windowed borderless like said above.
