Yeah I found a program that can minimize like ANY Quake 3 engine game. I thought it might be helpfull as using an kill tracker it laggs my !@#$% off ( Donno how it is with you
So I like to post this as it's really usefull. QOUTE from the maker :

Q3E, or Quake 3 Engine Minimizer is a program that has been created to
give you the ability to quickly and easily minimize nearly every game
that has been coded using the Q3 engine as a base. The reason I made
this was because I was tired of having to spectate, or suffer being
killed over and over again as I used Alt-Enter to switch to my desktop
which took practically forever so I could answer MSN or ICQ.
The concept of the "un-Alt-Tab-able" game minimizer isn't mine.
This one is more of an extension to an idea that someone else had,
that I thought could be expanded furthur.
I was cruising JK2files.com one day, looking at the utilities section
(I had just sent in KT 101 and was looking to see if anyone had d/led
it yet) when I saw a file called "JK2 Minimizer" created by a very cool
d00d who goes by the name of Deathwish. Being interested,
I downloaded the file and found out how simple it was, yet at the same
time, so very very useful. Responding to people on MSN/ICQ, etc was
no longer a grueling task. Later on, I was playing STV: Elite Force online
and found that I greatly missed the ability to minimize it like I could
with JK2. So, I took it upon myself to create my own Minimizer. Using
snippets of VB code around the internet, I managed to create a similar
program I named "EF Minimizer", that I submitted to effiles.com. Many
people found it immensely useful, and I was extremely happy with the
A few months later, I attended a LAN party (My first ever LAN party
) where I got involved in a heated battle of Q3A with some
other people there. After a few minutes, I, by reflex, tried to minimize
Q3. When nothing happened, I said to myself at that point, "I'm going
to make a version of EF Minimizer that can minimize all Q3 based games".
After the LAN party, I clean forgot about doing that, so the half finished
"Uni Minimizer" (I hadn't thought of a good name then) sat on my hard
drive for a month.
After a month, I downloaded the new Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy demo (May
I point out, an AWESOME demo). Whilst I was playing it, someone on MSN
messaged me, and I realised that I was stuck in-game, having to alt-enter
out. At that point, I remembered Uni Minimizer, and decided to complete
work on it. So, after a few nights of working, I brought you version
1.0 of the new Quake 3 Engine Minimizer, or Q3E Minimizer, but now, I
bring you version 1.51 of Q3E Minimizer!
This came from the readme and it's a short summary for : "With this application you can alt-tab out of ALMOST any Quake 3 Engine based game...."
How it works is in the readme file. Have fun!

Credits go to TiM and credits goes to me for giving credits and for being a ass now because I gave credits to myself. Although a lot of people know this program already so I think I didn't came with anything new. Well have fun anyway.
