I'm running a puzzle generator to examine a large number of puzzles generated from random seeds and pick the best ones. I'd like to do something else while I wait, but the app stops updating when not in focus.

Does anyone know how to make it stay running always (idle priority is fine)? I'm using GLF3, compiling in MSVC (old Monkey).

Thanks Mike, that did the trick! (It still stops when minimised, but that is fine, probably best behaviour.)

Yes, that is normal with Monkey X. I think I changed that for CX, there is should run too when minimized.
