Process Lasso / Re: Minor feedback re: themes/...
Last post by Jeremy Collake - Today at 08:18:29 AM
We've been working on the green. It was brightened a few builds ago, but still not as bright as it was (intentionally). Which RGB value did you go with?

The custom color theme support could use improvement, but I'm not sure when/if it'll be done. It's something we could spend considerable time on, at the cost of other work. However, your suggestions are good, and if we do engage in that work, we'll see what we can do!

The graph legend could be further extended to show all elements. I'll log a ticket to consider that.
Process Lasso / Minor feedback re: themes/colo...

  • I noticed the graph's "CPU" green looked a little faded from a recent update, so for kicks I tested out custom colors by setting to set CPU back toward more of a "Matrix green". While setting custom colors however, the entire theme gets switched to "Light" theme. Further, some graph elements still don't change color, such as "Graph: CPU", and even when starting out on "Light" theme. Just an FYI, no biggie.
  • While playing with custom colors, I discovered a feature I wasn't aware has been added -- "Selected processes CPU" -- AWESOME! I love it. Super useful, especially with the multi-process-select additive graph ability.
  • "Reset colors" function also switches the theme to "Light". Perhaps intended, I was just anticipating a "stay-on-theme" reset.
  • Perhaps a "Reset Theme" function could be added high up the tree/ranking of the "View" menu which resets colors and the default graph components.
  • The current UX/UI of custom-colors is a bit difficult, particularly with the disconnect of "Wait, what's the name of this graph element I'm trying to change?" or "What's the graph element this element-name is linked to?"

    One idea: rather than listing elements in menu-list form, a popup could appear of a static (miniature?) view of the graph, and clicking the elements of this static-graph allows one to direct-change that element's color. Or, clicking a static-graph element moves a selector onto that graph element's name, making it easier to customize.

    Or even simpler: having the real-graph's colors change immediately each time a color is chosen in the color-selector without having to "OK" out of the popup. This would give immediate feedback as to what changes what, while also giving a convenient quick review in order to further tweak colors if desired (like if a selection doesn't fit well).
  • Suggestion: the graph legend is currently missing some elements, namely "Probalanced-process" vertical bars and "Selected-processes-CPU". I propose including the other graph elements into the legend as well, which would also assist the theme/color-setting process.

...All that said, none of this a big deal. Not notpicking, merely sharing feedback. Perfectly content with the dark-theme. Function over form, always, and PL nails it!

Your notion of some roundabout way to affect CPU cache use is not impossible, and could be of utility when properly targeted.
Awesome! Thanks for considering.

Are you sure PL is setting it, if so you should see a log entry listing CPU priority change.

To remove priority, just go to "options > CPU > CPU priority" and remove game exe there. Without a priority rule PL won't alter the CPU priority.

Do you have the option "foreground boosting" set on?
That would be the only other method of getting higher priority, if so there is an exclusion list for it.

Hey, I was looking for ways to disable turbo boost, and I found this regedit key which would enable or disable turbo boost using the power plan settings and it also seems to add the setting you were talking about. Here is the location if you need it: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00\be337238-0d82-4146-a960-4f3749d470c7

In this open the DWORD named "Attributes and change its value to 0

QuoteIf you need any help regarding this issue, and need me to test stuff, just drop me a PM here.

Thanks! It might be helpful to get a list of your installed applications, as it is likely that one is the key to reproducing this issue. The best way to get one is to use the classic Control Panel's 'Programs and Features' to product a list like this one (a random example screenshot from the Internet). You can email the screenshot to us at for privacy.

Yes, it should be there somewhere, *if* explorer is crashing.

This setting is now available in the ProBalance Advanced Options dialog as of v12.4.0.9 BETA. It defaults to ON. Processes with CPU affinities that have been modified will not be adjusted by ProBalance affinity changes. Other ProBalance settings will be applied.
