Keep AMS2 running while another app is launched?

    I have a profile set on my Stream Deck with Advanced Launcher to run a few apps on a separate monitor while I’m racing. Ex: Second Monitor, RST, Discord etc.

    In ACC, I’m able to launch those apps without pausing the game. With AMS2, the window will disappear and the game will pause until I swap back to it. Is there a specific setting I should be using to keep it running?

    Cheers!

    I have a similar set up with stream deck and there’s nothing I found that stops the game losing focus.

    it basically auto alt tabs out ,if you so much as click a mouse on a second screen.

    I can’t remember if setting ams2avx too high priority in system services/task manager actually does help keep the game from pausing even if it does minimise the window or not.
    but doesn’t stop the minimising, so not much use.

    u cant stop it from pausing, its a build in reaction.
    if u dont want that the game gets paused, multiplayer is the only option atm. but you will still lose your inputs when focus is lost.
    so if in the middle of an online race, a popup appears, you will just drive straight till u click back into the game.

    no idea who thought this was a good idea imo
    a single setting to keep running/remain controls if focus is lost could fix all that, but i assume they would need to change code and they dont do alot of that..
