    Seems to run perfectly fine both in IE7 and FF3.0.3 now on my machine!

    I tried clicking the game window, which did take IE7 out of focus, but the game still managed to pick up keypresses and what not, and for me, it only took one click literally anywhere to grab focus again.

    So here, everything is fine! :)

    JGOware : I am setting the focus to the game window when OSAKit starts it so it is normal that IE will lose the focus, though it is odd to require two clicks it activate IE... it works here and on every machine I tested it on as expected!

    It looks like I am gonna make a final release soon :D

    Sounds good. The 2 click thing is not a show stopper by any means. :)

    Try changing the window class so it is rendered as a child of the browser - that will overcome a lot of issues with regard to focus and event capture. When I have some more time I'll dig out the class code for IGL and post it here so you can see how I managed it.

    I seem to remember
    Code:
    WS_VISIBLE|WS_POPUP

    I cant get the latest version to work in Google Chrome on Vista but I guess it is not really a showstopper since Chrome is still an uncommon browser. Works fine in the IE7 and Firefox now though.

    Borundin - Those are interesting stats. I wonder what the percentage on Windows Xp,Vista are for IE v.s. Firefox users.
