    Agree. This is too poor idea for verified nox name but couldn't change to the application name you're playing.

    I don't know Is the programmer team have a brain or ever use a common sense to made this or not.

    Or this idea come from Internships or whoever. Do they have QA team or someone verified this idea before release.

    too bad for this discord. Only 1 thing I use Discord cuz it could show my application name to my friend which can help my friend awareness my playing game and let's them play 2gether.

    I'd love this feature to be implemented! Personally, I don't see the point in restricting it... It doesn't give any benefits to anyone, just a hassle to those who want to change it. So, can I kindly ask the Discord team to add this? 

    Thank you!

    Seriously. Discord for some out of the world reason is showing as a verified game and now every time Discord app is in focus, it switches to "playing Discord" instead of an actual unverified one that is not on the top.

    The whole uncustomizable verified thing is incredibly stupid. Does Discord even read anything on these forums because this has been requested for years now.

    Annoyingly also, some titles that used to work have now been changed - Dark Souls: PtDE (the old Dark Souls) will now be displayed as "Dark Souls: REMASTERED", which is incredibly annoying, because appearing to play this piece of s*** remaster is actually kind of insulting.

    And since the game executable is also within the SteamApps folder called "Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition", there's really no good excuse for this behaviour.

    This needs to get changed so that you can change the name of a verified one. Not being able to rename it is dumb.

    Please give us the ability to change the name or disable Verified games from even showing. This "Our way" or nothing approach is annoying.

    If anyone wants to get around this until the locks are gone from game name changing, just rename the game or application's .exe file to something else, and Discord will no longer recognize it. You can then name it to what ever you like again in the Game Activity settings.

    @GiraffeCubed: So, wait, do they just go by the EXE filename? Besides being easily spoofed, there are a bunch of cases where two games just happen to use the same filename (perhaps they share initials), so that's a really strange way to do things ...

    I would really LOVE to be able to rename verified games again. My example is when playing Minecraft, I used to change the name to let people on my community know I was playing on the community MC server, to differentiate multiplayer from single player. It was something of an invite to get them to come hang out!

    This has been suggested many times over the years and Discord seems intent on ignoring it.

    I desperately need to be able to play "fish mining simulator" and not have it auto-detect as "RuneScape".

    @GiraffeCubed thanks so much for sharing that! Your suggestion did the trick! I can now show when I'm playing Melee or Project M instead of just "Dolphin".

     

    @Naesten yes it literally goes by filename, I went and renamed vlc.exe to dolphin.exe and it would show me as playing dolphin when I launch vlc.

    I've been browsing through the internet, I didn't know that changing verified game has been a topic for so long. Discord, please, CHANGE IT. We want that, you should know by now! It doesn't work a 100%, get it already! You meant good, but let us change it when it's wrong!
    I'm currently playing the visual novel Amnesia: Memories. But Discord tells everyone I'm playing a totally different game. Amnesia: The Dark Descent. And I can't even change that because the game is verified. It's not like it's a remastered edition or some DLC to it, it's a total different game. If the verification doesn't work, give us the chance to fix it manually, please.

    Please allow us to change the name of "verified" games. The current functionality is counter-intuitive.

    I'd really like this. It'd be nice to set Chocobo World as a different name than Final Fantasy VIII, so people know I'm leaving it open and probably away, rather than ignoring them intentionally.

    Please let us change this! For some reason Discord decided that Google Chrome was a verified game and named it Minecraft, and I can't change it because Discord is "100% correct" with their verified games! So now I'm pretty much always playing Minecraft (while not even owning the game). Great design!

    @MeLlamanHokage , this request is about Verified games, which you cannot add manually. The user is given no control over them.
