I don't know why, but it often works for me if I alt tab into the magicka spell list. --- http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=5296 UOP http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=10739 USIP
Hmm, still doesn't work for me. Does the same thing it always has. I'll bring the game back up and it freezes. The music still plays, and I can bring up the console, but other than that I can't do anything. --- There is a tab on your screen that says "FAQs". Click it.
If you alt-tab out and want to tab back in later, open up your task manager (ctrl, alt, del) and then go to applications tab and right click on Oblivion and hit "switch to". That should tab you back in w/o it crashing.
I can't say it works 100% for 1 big reason - when I tab out and tab back in normally it barely ever crashes for me. It has never crashed using that switch to method either, so that isn't saying much since it barely ever does anyways. You can try it though. --- "because im not trying to look smart to win my argument, i have an actual case so i dont need to resort to tactics like that" - FreeIpod
