GLOBAL WARNING: Game Freezes after ALT+TAB:

Dr. Mona Lisa has investigated a problem where the game might freeze for over 40 seconds after restoring the window (for example using ALT+TAB). The problem seems to be caused by Nvidia drivers on Windows 10 and Windows 11. To fix it, please check option: "Disable fullscreen optimizations" in the Maximization Helper window. This option will be checked by default in the next version of Unofficial Patch 1.5.

In order to disable full screen optimizations, please follow the guide below.
1. Start Unofficial Patch 1.5 Launcher.
2. Click on "Change UP1.5 Settings" button on the right.
3. Make sure that option "Always show the Maximization Helper" is checked, then click "OK - Save Changes".
4. Start the game and minimize it.
5. You should see the Maximization Helper window in the top-left part of the screen.
6. Check option "Disable fullscreen optimizations", and click "Yes" when it asks you to restart game.

Please read the Help page: https://ee2.eu/help/#antivirus

None of antivirus programs seem to detect UP1.5 executables as malicious:

Added after 3 hours 29 minutes 17 seconds:
Optional Minor update 158020 has been released!

Update Type: Monthly Update. Changes: https://www.ee2.eu/patch/changes/#158020

- Option "Disable fullscreen optimizations" is now checked by default for all users after installing this update. It's available in the Maximization Helper window:
* It fixes frequent game freezes after restoring the game window using ALT+TAB. This problem was usually occurring for players who are using NVIDIA graphics card.
- Moved the folder icon from the Launcher resource to an external file in order to fix the recent Windows Defender false-positive detections.

If you have got UP1.5.5+, you can update by clicking: empireearth2://FunctionMinorVersionInstall
