    Hey i got a question. I am on Mac, and when I open CSGO it doesnt let me choose that as an option? Like the game is running but CSGO_exe doesnt show up under the dropdown menu.

    @twillygame it's possible that it's not in the database. I'll ping the team on it.

    @Velarae by the look of it you have to download the desktop app.

    @starzz87 the games detection process only works in the desktop app, wouldn't do much good on the browser app. Have you tried following the steps in this article to reinstall?

    Hello,

    I see that "BlackShot" is detected but it says "Blackshot SEA".
    Could you please change it to just "BlackShot".

    The Capital "S" is important to the Brand and BlackShot has multiply services so we would like to generalize the name to incorporate both services.

    The Global BlackShot Team is looking to setup an Official BlackShot Discord Channel for it's community.

    @ConnorLifeGem Games Detection is only available on the desktop versions of Discord.

    I'm experiencing the opposite problem - Discord thinks I'm playing a game while I'm actually not. It mistakes FreePascal for being Freedom Planet (I didn't even hear such a title before).

    @Nimrik Is it showing up in your games tab normally, or is it something else? Can you change the name in the games tab?

  • Avatar
    Mimrik

    Yes, it is. Somehow Discord even managed to verify it as being what it's not, so I can't change the name.

    @Nimrik I'm having the same problem. Scrivener, which is effectively a word processor, if being added and verified by Discord as a game. It is in fact not, and there doesn't seem to be a way to make discord "forget" it.

    I'm still with Windows Vista @Cilantrelle , guess there's no plans to have Discord for that

    @Varaelian unfortunately no, we only support as far back as Windows 7 currently. Sorry about that. =[

    Add game named "Last Horizon":

    cmdLine
    :
    "C:\Users\DONALD~1\AppData\Local\Temp\IXP000.TMP\LastHorizonNovember17b.exe"

    exePath
    :
    "c:/users/donald~1/appdata/local/temp/ixp000.tmp/lasthorizonnovember17b.exe"

    I am playing a game. It is running on my PC right now. Discord is also running. It does not show up in any of these steps. It's like it's invisible to Discord...
