-v0.14 Changes
By request the default minimization key has been changed to CTRL+Z, 
this can be changed in the manner specified in the v0.13 changes. 
The W:ET Minimizer also now features the ability to re-maximize W:ET 
by holding down CTRL+SHIFT+Z(1) and does NOT ALLOW the user to maximize 
W:ET by clicking it in the taskbar. This feature was implemented to 
protect the user from corrupting the game resolution when the game 
uses a different size of screen than the desktop. This was not an 
issue before because the minimizer did not record your resolution, 
the only resolution that was used was the game resolution. Now the 
minimizer records your desktop and game screen resolutions and 
switches between them appropriately when you minimize or maximize 
the game.
(1) Replace "Z" with whatever alphanumeric character is in the 
minkey.cfg file.  This function means that in both the maximize and 
minimize functions the character used is the one placed in the config 
file minkey.cfg, the only difference is whether you must press SHIFT.

-v0.13 Changes
*Actually appropriately labeled version number. 
*Added check to make sure custom program is not already running.
The W:ET Minimizer now features the ability to customize 
slightly the minimize key. Edit the file minkey.cfg (which
is included in the ZIP file) and place the letter or number you 
like as the first character in that file, the minimize code will 
be CTRL+<your_letter/number>.  The W:ET Minimizer also now has 
an autoconnect to W:ET server feature by using the included file 
autoconnect.cfg (the example connects to Clan Paladin's W:ET 
server). The first and only line of this file is the server you 
would like to connect to in the format <ip>:<port>.  Debug code 
added to functions when loading programs, if you recieve a message 
formatted like this:
Unable to load W:ET, load it yourself! (Error Code <num>)
Please send me the message using my feedback form!

-v0.12 Changes
The W:ET Minimizer now features an autoload external 
application function.  Create a file in the same folder as 
etmin.exe that is named autoload.cfg (there is an example 
included in your minimizer ZIP file).  The first line is the 
name of your application, the second line is the command-line 
to send the application, the third line is the title of the 
application (used to find the window), the fourth line is a 
'force minimize' line - set to 1 to force the loaded application 
to be minimized or set to 0 to have it load at its default size, 
and the fifth line is the 'force to close' - set to 1 to force 
the loaded application to close once W:ET Minimizer closes.

-v0.11 Changes
If W:ET Minimizer is exited and restarted while W:ET is 
still running it will not attempt to open W:ET again. Do 
NOT load two session of W:ET, it will cause the graphics 
of the first one to go crazy.

-Loading W:ET Minimizer
W:ET Minimizer must be loaded BEFORE W:ET, the minimizer 
will wait until W:ET loads to find the handle to the W:ET 
window.  As a bonus, W:ET Minimizer will attempt to start 
W:ET when loaded, it will tell you to do it yourself if it 
cannot. Let me know how this works! I've only tested it on 
XP but the API calls should work on any Windows OS.

-Using W:ET Minimizer
I didn't put in a way to customize the keystroke yet, 
ask me if you want this (or anything else) to happen. 
Keystroke CTRL+Q closes the program safely 
(unregisters keystroke, should cause no problems 
to force it to quit by going CTRL+C with the prog open).
Keystroke CTRL+M minimizes W:ET. To maximize W:ET again 
click the W:ET icon in your taskbar, this will 
re-initialize the DirectX engine.  CTRL+Q is designed for an 
ingame minimizer exit, the minimizer should exit automatically 
when W:ET closes.

-The Console Window
Because it's easier for me there is currently no GUI, shoot 
me a message with my feedback form if you want a GUI or some
other feature. The form is located at:

I'm NOT responsible if this program screws up your computer. 
I believe this program works effectively and minimizes W:ET 
correctly with no side effects, and if it doesn't work with 
your computer setup I'm sorry.  Feel free to contact me via 
the feedback form and I'll try and fix whatever is broken, 
but there are no guarantees.
