Keep FL window running on background

Is it recommended to apply this hack/break (1B264C) when FL window is not in focus ?

I asked because I read the post of Bobthemanofsteel HERE and I believe no one replied on his/her post.

Also I would like to ask why adoxa's Borderless Window is not included in the Limit Breaking 101 ?

Is it fine to apply both "Run Background" and "Borderless Window" together or does borderless window obsoletes run background ?

Lastly, if you are using borderless window, you also need HUD shift to set your resolution ratio, am I right ?

Thank you.

Borderless window is independent of everything (it simply turns off the border/caption flags when the window is created). It's not included in 101 because no one has added it yet - feel free.

Can't comment on the display hack as I've never used it, but I don't imagine it should cause issues in windowed mode. SP automatically pauses when not in focus; FL Hack has an option to override that (by pretending to be MP via Freelancer.exe, 1B2665, 74->EB).

The background hack is fine in windowed mode but does indeed cause issues when alt+tabbing in fullscreen. I had players complain of crashing after trying to tab back into game after I implemented it.

I see so it would be better to use adoxa's hack Freelancer.exe, 1B2665, 74->EB ? To overcome the issue of the old hack of Cannon.

Thank you.

You want my hack if you're playing SP and don't want it to pause when it loses focus; you want Canon's hack if you still want the display to update when it loses focus, but only if you play windowed.
