3. Does Dungeon Lords support task switching (Alt-Tab)?
Dungeon Lords does not support task switching when running in full screen mode. If you wish to run in windowed mode, you may start the game with the parameter -gdi and you will be able to switch between applications. Be aware that mouselook will not function in windowed mode though, and you will need to re-map the view rotation to the keyboard.

good luck

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

X-Windows is UNIX/Linux windowing system. It is able to simulate fully accelerated fullscreens in windows for applications.

For Windows - verify acceleration in windowed mode using http://www.realtech-vr.com/glview/
And update drivers and directx accordingly.

For windowing your particular app read here:

I put -gdi at the end of the command line and when I click to run the game the busy icon appears briefly but game dosent run in window mode-just dosent load. Take it back off the game loads and runs normally but when I alt tab out and than try to go back to the game it freezes.

Try diagnosing your video drivers - you might be able to get T&L accelerated window with latest video and directx drivers. Switching from 16bits to 32bits display depth may also be of help. GLview allows to check quickly.
