GRIP: Combat Racing not taking focus from BigBox.....

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

GRIP: Combat Racing (https://store.steampowered.com/app/396900/GRIP_Combat_Racing/) is not taking focus away from BigBox so when I start the game, my controller still controls BigBox in the background. I know this because I can hear the BigBox sounds as I'm navigating GRIP's menus.

Damn. I've tried everything to try stop it. Running Borderless Fullscreen, Run in a window, run exclusive fullscreen and nothing stops it from happening. I've switched off the Loading Screens because I don't like them and I find they cause more issues than they solve.

Has anyone else got this game and care to give it a try and report back?

It's a fantastic game, an update of PS1's Rollcage, and is the only new game that I've been excited about for ages.

Does it work properly if you alt-tab to the game after starting from bigbox/ launchbox? You might be able to bring the game to the forefront using an ahk script to launch the game.

The game is on my list to pickup but waiting on the next steam sale.

@twobucks Thanks for the reply mate.

I did actually fix this by doing something similar to what you said. When the game starts, a little notification pops up to do with something called "Nvidia ANSEL". I've no idea what it is. Something to do with screenshots or some Nvidia bloatware. I wondered if it might be something to do with this notification messing with the focus so I found these threads:



I did what this guy said in this post (https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1029545/ansel/how-to-uninstall-this-crap-/post/5953120/#5953120) and voila, that did the trick! This also fixed Tekken 7 as the Ansel notification was messing with that too. Obviously this won't happen if you use AMD :-)

@twobucks Yeah, I thoroughly recommend the game. It's fast and intense. Best new game I've played in ages. I've just been putting together my own custom soundtrack for it which can be copied into the game folder. I have to cap the FPS at 30fps though because of my stock i5-2500k, GTX 750 ti and 8GB RAM but it's still all good.
