I am trying to setup a game far cry3 so it goes into high performance power profile .

Now this game uses two exe depending on if you run it under D3d9 or D3d11 .
So the exe names are farcry3_d3d11.exe and farcry3.exe

So what would be proper wildcard to work for both ?

I have tried these so far but none works

farcry*.exe
farcry*

I also tried path  to folder it is installed , C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\FarCry 3\bin and  C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\FarCry 3\bin\*.exe

Since I normally use farcry3_d3d11.exe , that is what I put in and works fine ,not using wildcards .

In the current version wildcards aren't supported for default power profiles, despite an incorrect caption in the configuration dialog for them.

I am changing this now, so it will accept wildcards in the next beta.

I have changed the code and done some preliminary testing. I'll upload v6.0.2.97 beta here soon.

Thanks for pointing this out. I am going to through the other process rules and make sure they all allow wildcards.

Ah , ok 

I thought I was going crazy ,nothing worked  :)

Edit : would it be hard to have search/browse folders option for finding/adding  the exe/process ?
right now you need to know exact name .

hmm, still not working for me .
I used farcry*.exe   , shouldn't that work for farcry3_d3d11.exe  ?

Edit: also tried path C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\FarCry 3\bin\*.exe  ,that didn't work either with newest beta .

Hold on there newer beta, will try .
Oh, I see problem , your uploaded 96 as 97 beta , please check

Cool, that helps cause many times the app is not running when you want to set it up .
