Windows 7: Game command line parameters

13 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7
Game command line parameters

I simply want to add the -nointro parameter to my BioShock game shortcut.
I go to the shortcut, then properties, but where I think it should be added, similar to what XP looks like, is greyed out (the word "BioShock").
What do I need to do? I'm new to Windows 7, coming from XP.

If that doesn't work you can go to,

C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer

and find the folder that contains the shortcut for the game (have to go through them all till you find it though), and add it to the properties there.
