Hi Veliki and welcome to the forums.

The GameUXLegacyGDFs.txt is located in the button labeled "DOWNLOAD" at the very beginning of this tutorial, just press the button and save it. then just extract the file using either Winrar, Winzip or 7Zip.

Good Luck!!!

OK, it I copied the wrong ID from the .txt, and it loaded the game behind that ID...which is not why I'm having. I tried copying over the correct ID, but it seems it's too late now. What can I do now?

Ok VeLiKi try this:

1. Make sure Game Explorer Folder (GEF) is closed.
2. In the start menu type regedit and then press enter.
3. Find the game you don't want to be display in GEF.
  • should be in: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\
4. Just delete the Key that belongs to that game.
5. Open GEF and the game should be gone.

Now you just need to start the tutorial again .

Example: If I want to delete Hidden & Dangerous 2 from my registry, I just need to delete this key.

Good Luck.

It's so obvious...I thought there's a way to edit it, I didn't really think. Thanks Rjck!
