Steam Game Detection now just Automatic Game Detection
« on: March 26, 2015, 12:06:04 PM »
To include for the addition of Origin and alternate means of automated game detection, language referencing Steam itself will be removed in this next minor update to version 8.0.

Just a heads up :)

I forgot about uplay (just like origin and steam). I think Jeremy is going to set up for automatic detection of all games. I believe he his currently working on this now.

Don't forget Blizzard games! :)

(Like Starcraft 2, which games are launched through Blizzard's unified launcher now)

So you means Blizzard has a unified launcher like Uplay and Origin to launch their game?
Then you may provide the name of the launcher, and the installed location too. ;)
