You probably meant to point to this:

As far as I understand, (and I don’t know what you mean by big picture
mode, so I’ll just assume you mean fullscreen mode) you are trying
to launch a program with a fullscreen window while running another
program, which already has a fullscreen window. By default i3 prevents
that, as usually when you make a window fullscreen, this means you want
to completely focus on it, and anything that tries to steal that focus
is inhibited. However, this behaviour can be changed. For details, see:
