How to add steam games to game profile

G'day all,

I've searched the forums and Google on how to add a specific steam game to the Game Profile that BD offers, but have not found any answers.

And before anyone asks erroneously, as this is not the issue here, I have added the steam folder to the exceptions and firewall list.

Oh, before I forget, running Windoze 10.

Thanks much for the help and advice.

Cheers

  • Steam games are started from within Steam and use a URL as 'starting point' (eg; steam://rungameid/78278360), so, not an executable per se (and yes, it's per "se", not "say" as many linguistic handicaps write/quote, and on that theme for a minuteness of time, it's "voila" not 'walla/wallah", but then again you can't teach Yanks anything as they know everything (tic)).

    Yes, you can start the game without using the Steam shortcut (available when Steam has been started), but that defeats the purpose of getting/using Steam if you have to 'handraulically' search for and find the games generic executable and apply the profile settings that way.

    Also, why on earth do you not have a search box for when looking for game executables like every normal program has? Is it that you don't know how to implement this or just can't be bothered?

    What would normally have taken less than 2 minutes (I added over 12 games) took well over 8 minutes (possibly more than 10, was getting very frustrated at the time) because I had to drill down for each and every game executable to add them to the game profile.

    Yes, seems petty complaining about only 8'ish minutes, but in this modern technological age there is no excuse for not being able to apply a search function to nearly any 'supportive' program, the only real excuses are ineptness or laziness. Wonder which one BD is applying?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
