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.
Thank you so much! It worked like a charm!
BTW, do you have any idea why that happens?

Great buddy .
MMM... Maybe cause when u paste the game into GEF you used the main executable instead of a shortcut.

GameUXLegacyGDFs.txt

I don't have a file called "GameUXLegacyGDFs.txt" anywhere on my HDD. Only a .dll by the same name. Where does this file come from?

Hi gnasser, for games that currently doesnt have ESRB Rating you could use this:

ApplicationId {6cebf5c8-43be-4444-8adc-f8cba9222cbe}

Just follow the steps of the manual part of the tutorial to edit the info.

Hi Rjck!

Can you explain this?!



GTA IV has a version number and ratings!?!?!?

Bad Company 2 Beta also has ratings, but the version number is 1.0.0.

Hiy Tizmo, what do you want me to explain buddy?
why GTA4 has version number and BC2 hasn't?

Its because some developers put information like rating, description, release date, version, genres, etc. in their games so it can be recognized by Game Explorer.
In the case of BC2 it seems like the dev do not fill the version info so that's why it displays "1.0.0.0" or maybe because its stills a beta.

Hope thats what u need to know if not let me known .
