When MP is running, and i press exit, it doesnt exits, it minimizes first, after selecting exit again MP exits.
If I go back to 1.3.0 everything works well.

Steps to Reproduce:
It happens every time

    Hello

    Looks like you're running in windowed mode. As of MP 1.4 the window aspect ratio is locked to the aspect ratio of the skin. Based on your screenshot, the aspect ratios of your chosen skin and your screen don't match (or at least the window can't fill the screen without being distorted while the task bar is showing). Hence the gap. As far as I understand it this new behaviour is by design - it is to avoid distorting elements in the user interface.

    Is there are reason you don't use full screen mode instead of maximising? Toggling is as simple as pressing alt+enter...

    I think this change is a result of the D3D rework. Can you confirm? Did you change this intentionally, or is the maximise behaviour an oversight?

    AFAIK scythe fixed window aspect ratio to skin aspect ratio, because in 1.3 maximizing window could lead to aspect ratio change (for video/TV also !).
    @tv-maniac
    do you expect maximized window to generate black bars left and right if window will take full screen width?

    OK, second problem is solved. So what is about first thing? Every Videoplayer like MPC or VLC can be maximized and plays the fils with correct aspect ratio, could you please change it back in 1.5.0 final?
