Post GTA SA freezes when alt-tab
Whenever i decide to alt-tab out of the game to do something else, it's fine.
Whenever i decide to alt-tab back into the game it freezes and i'm forced to quit the game.

This is how it looks when i alt-tab back into the game. Game sound can be heard running in the background which indicates i'm still in game but i'm just seeing a black screen and that white title bar thingy.

This problem ONLY happens when OBS Studio is running. If i am recording, it happens. If i am not recording, it happens. The cause has something to do with OBS Studio but i don't know the solution.

EDIT: When i make display capture the source in OBS, it works fine but i don't want my windows to be captured when i do alt-tab, just my gameplay only. I normally use game capture but when i use game capture the problem occurs.

Could you provide me with your GPU model and windows version.
Experiment with GPU drivers I have had good results with older Win8.1 nVidia Drivers on Win10.

So I can try and recreate this issue, export the scene and upload somewhere or post a screenshot of the properties.

One trick is to Press ALT+Enter to enter window mode before tabbing out.

Eliminate startup apps.
Run - MSCONFIG
Click - Services
Click - Hide Microsoft Services
Click - Disable all
Click - Startup
Click - Open Task manager
Disable - Each Item

For advanced users and more advanced control get - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysint ... s/autoruns

Other than that ensure a clean game install without any modified DLL's such as ENB or SoftTH

The problem is now fixed. I'm not entirely sure what solution worked but after doing a windows update, the problem was no longer there.

I also re-installed sa-mp, moved the game folder from desktop to program files (x86) and messed around with the compatibility and my display settings in game and in obs.

Thread can be locked, thanks @Alee @Billman87 for the help regardless.
