Fans deploy a mod to fix Monster Hunter World’s alt-tab errors on PC

You don't need to look at other things, right?

There are some bugs in Monster Hunter World on PC, if you haven’t noticed. A lot of them have been addressed, but one of the more egregious ones remains and tends to crash the game when you alt-tab out of the title… which is a problem, since everyone in the world does that. Fortunately fan-made mods are here to save the day, fixing the issue with alt-tabbing by correcting an error in the engine that handles fullscreen mode incorrectly.

The mod also adds in higher-resolution graphic support, the ability to hide the interface for screenshot purposes, and a few more technical additions like tricking the game into ignoring certain CPU cores for performance issues. Of course, given that the game is meant to be played online there’s a limit to how much can actually be modded, but it’s nice to see that the issue is being fixed… by an unpaid modder rather than the company releasing the game, but still.

I’d be embarrassed if I were the developer.

And this is why whenever a game is available for consoles and PC I will get the PC version, no exceptions.

I’m keeping an eye on these bug fixes to decide when to jump into the game myself. Also definitely in agreement that the modding community is amazing, but most of this stuff should really be coming from the company itself.

Yeah, and this is the reason I still don’t own Nier Automata on PC. Shame on you Square Enix!

There’s also a working ultrawide mod now. Just needs the UI reposition completed but there are no issues. Works flawlessly. :) Love the pc modding community.
