You should start a topic for ApplicationID requests or something
Because i can't find a single game in the GameUXLegacyGDFs.txt file unfortunately, that is useful to me :/

Thanks in advance

Hi LaZi3b0y and welcome to the forums, if you cant find the game in the GameUXLegacyGDFs.txt file, try to follow the steps on the manual part of the tutorial.
BTW which game you are looking for, maybe i can give you a hand.

Sorry bud, haven't found any games with the same esrb content, u need to follow the steps on the manual part of the tutorial and remember what i said:

"If you can't find the game in GameUXLegacyGDFs.txt, you can use a similar one and edit the values..."

good luck.

Hi again I back with a new problem^^

Whenever i try to start some games from Game Explorer folder i get various errors.

For example when i try to start Call of Duty 4 a error window pops up first where it says:

WIN_PROPER_QUIT_BODY
Where i can choose between "Yes", "No" and "Cancel".
When i choose "Cancel" nothing else happens the window closes down and thats it.
If i choose either "Yes" or "No" a console window pops up and then a error window in front of the console thats says:

"Error during initialization:
Couldn't load fileSysCheck.cfg. Make sure Call of Duty is run from the correct folder."

It's not a biggy really but i would like to know why this happens?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Maybe i should mention that I manage to start the games from the Start Menu and from respective game folder.

Here is a screenshot of Call of Duty 4 in my registry.
I'm guessing that you mean the Game Explorer registry

Mmm... All seems to be ok. I post this before, maybe you could try it and let me known if that solves the issue.

    NOTE: The key values might be different from yours.
  2. Go to C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer\ and find the folder with the same name of the game. "the one you take note above".
  3. Open that folder until you find the game's shortcut. eg. ...\{3F29E50B-538D-48A0-9F69-A632B5AA5308}\PlayTasks\0\
  4. Delete that shortcut, put a new shortcut of the game in here and rename it "Play".
Note: Make sure GEF is closed, cause otherwise when u delete the shortcut in the step 4, the game will dissapear from GEF and u have to make all the tutorial again.
