    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone has any tips for fixing this issue. I launch Skyrim (steam game) through SKSE to use mods. The behavior I see is:

    - MePo loses focus
    - SKSE launcher script file opens and closes as normal
    - Skyrim starts in full screen mode
    - Couple of seconds later (whilst Skyrim is running) MePo regains focus

    Is there a work around to this? To the best of my knowledge it must be launched through this file to enable the scripts to run so I can't just launch the Skyrim.exe directly..



    Thanks!

    In configuration, select the game from the games tab then select the 'PC settings' tab for that game. You can then specify the name of the launched file in the launched file box (you only need to specify the name of the executable not the full path or extension but all of those ways should still work). The plugin should then wait for this file to close before regaining focus.

    In your case the launched file probably should be the actual Skyrim executable, you can check what this should be by looking in Task Manager when the game is running.
