Adding a lot of games to the 'Gaming Mode'

There is no fullscreen detection in PL, so you have to add each game individual to the 'Game mode'. This can take some time since you can't use wildcards. So, here's a quick way to add your entire game folder/partition to PL!

You need: Win7 with Notepad++ and at least 25 games   :D

  • Go to the folder in question and search for *.exe; select all, "SHIFT" + "RMB", select 'copy as path' and paste it into Notepad.
  • Delete the quotation marks and unwanted entries (e.g. Steam). Use a macro (like this: "End", add comma, "Del") to get all paths in one line and separated by comma.
  • Export your PL config, open the .ini w/ Notepad, add everything after 'AutomaticGamingModeProcessPaths=' and save it.
  • Import the config and play ffs.

Note: This'll also add none-game entries like *setup, inst*, unins*, vcredist*.. but who cares.

Good tip ;). Thanks for posting that! I really should add some auto-detect of full screen apps eventually, I'll have to think about the best way to do so.
