Quote from: Keefa on August 03, 2014, 10:30:58 AMSetting game mode to every game executable one by one is tedious and takes a *lot* of time. If possible, I'd love it if I could just point Process Lasso to my games folder and say "All of the .exe files there. Why not." It'd include some non-games (such as setup executables), but save a lot of time and effort. At least giving the user the choice would be very nice.Right now I think it's possible to have the same .exe listed as a game several times. To avoid this, Process Lasso could either just disregard the user if s/he is attempting to make a duplicate entry or show an error message instead of quietly accepting it. Also, a purge button could be nice. If I uninstall tons of games but forget to take them out of the list, there's unnecessary bloat in the .ini file.Other than that, the game optimizations BenYeeHua mentioned sound good to me. Anything to make my games run just a bit faster is always welcome.

Quote from: danlock on August 06, 2014, 08:46:24 PMI've been away from (active participation in) the forums for a while, as anyone here might--or might not--have noticed. At any rate, I'm no longer going to be complaining about issues on XP; I built a new PC and am now using Windows 8.1 because it supports many things I wanted that XP doesn't support and has even a few things supported that 7 doesn't. A developer (or a search of msdn.microsoft.com or another MS site) would enumerate those changes better than I could. 8.1 OEM was on sale at the time, in addition, while 7 wasn't, and a few other things that I probably forgot.The only thing XP supported that 8.1 doesn't is drivers for my aging scanner (for which there is likely a workaround involving temporarily disabling the checking for signed drivers). Never mind, though. I'm way off-topic and will probably seek input regarding a problem I have with the acknowledgement of my license by Process Lasso in another topic. (Then again, why waste screen space? Oh yeah: off topic is uncool. )[/list]
Quote from: natostanco on August 07, 2014, 06:01:17 AMif you say a product for gaming is coming anyway a feature i'd like is specific process restraint. If a process uses more than like 50% of a core, than make that core exclusive to that process so that all the other processes running have the affinity disabled for that specific core, but the process in question should still be able to use all cores, he should just have exclusive access to 1 core. Useful for games with one big thread.
Quote from: BenYeeHua on September 10, 2014, 10:37:10 AMCan it be Kaspersky blocking the Process Lasso to shutting down?I am not sure did Kaspersky has some conflict with Process Lasso, but you may wanna check for it.

Quote from: support on September 24, 2014, 09:10:52 AMThe status bar could use an overhaul.Time of day, maybe.. I dunno though, I'm trying to envision it being popular. Most people have the system clock readily displayed on the taskbar. I hate to waste any status bar real-estate, but then again, it doesn't take much.Core/CPU temp, maybe.. probably not for a while though, there are several things in the development queue before temperature support, which require a bit of work.Definitely you guys will like what Bitsum has coming here in Q4 2014.

Quote from: edkiefer on September 24, 2014, 10:48:16 AMFWIW , I still got the black screen with message PL must be forced to shutdown (not sure if that is exact wording ) with PL ver 7.0 .It only displays for split second , but it still there randomly .That is with only Openhardware and PL running , before shutdown , I close browser or other app that might be running .
