[MP4.1] ManiaPlanet icon is gone after some switching to another app (Alt+Tab)

Hello ! :)
After some minutes, ManiaPlanet icon (on the top-left of the window) isn't displayed anymore after switching to another app (Alt+Tab) but it shouldn't be the case following the Windows guidelines.. :?

Cheers,

Do you think?
Which Windows Guidelines? Windows 3.1? :lol:

Firefox does not show an icon, not even a name.
Steam does not show an icon, Calc doesn't show, etc.

I guess the icon is only necessary for the display in the task bar, and for the shortcut.

Nah, the icon is supposed to be there in Maniaplanet since it's a regular old legacy Win32 app. I have no idea why the icon would suddenly disappear though, but maybe it has something to do with switching between fullscreen and windowed? :?

Hey,

Thomas Fox (aka Ziyx) had the same issue too :
Image
Screenshot sent to a Discord server about maps, he reported some possible improvements, that's why you see some circles :P
He runs ManiaPlanet on Windowed mode as you can see but I really think he plays MP en FullScreen too, he Alt-Tab a lot as he's a Mapper
I don't know what exactly happened but yes that's strange ^^

For "Guidelines", I mean all programs should have a icon (I use that word because Android, iOS, and some others language have their own guidelines :? )

Cheers :)
