Windows 7: Games Folder

11 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64

I saw a tutorial showing how to create a Game Link with Art, and everything on Windows 7. Link: Games Explorer Folder - Add Games To

And i was thinking, for us to make registry files, for each game.
For example: Fallout3.reg

And if i am going to do this, of course i will need your help.
So lets start making those.

The .reg must contain Box Art, and everything from release date to title.
They must be together in a .rar file:
- A picture from the art box.
- Registry file

I made Fallout 3 example

What must users do?
-Download the file, unrar it and double-click the registry file and accept.
-Go to C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer\GamesBoxArt (OBS: Change Username to yours)
and edit the file you will have ( Example: Fallout 2 cover ) and overwrite with the fallout 3 one.

List of Games:

Forget this, it is not going to work.

People use different directories on games, so yeah
