    Game mode cause enormously deferred, slow key pressing reaction during playing [FIX]


    How the problem looks like?


    You try to turn using arrows while driving, and the key is registered with delay. The same for accelerate key bound to some letter.

    Or you try to move, but you can't, or it is difficult. Key registering is not constant, and instant.


    When the problem occurs?


    When the game mode is turned on, probably on units with slow CPUs.

    It was fixed by setting explorer.exe to high.

    The problem can be also triggered by closing explorer.exe during the game, while with game mode turned off, explorer could be closed without causing the problem.

    The other thing triggering the issue was changing game application priority to higher than "normal" (even with explorer set to "high").


    I encountered the problem in various games like: BF V beta, FH3, FH4 demo.


    Actually it's also shame that when we close explorer.exe after UWP app launch (e.g. from relevant command in CMD.exe), which fixes FH3/4 crashes for some people, OS becomes unresponsible. There is only black screen on game exit, and we cannot launch explorer.exe manually then. We need to log off via ALT+CTRL+DEL (good that at least that thing works).

    I also don't quite like the thing in 1809, that game mode was deleted from game bar. Now it needs to be disabled/enable in Windows Settings>Gaming>Game Mode, instead of Win+G in the game, and pressing button.

    :)

  3. Game Mode Win10

    Hi,

    Game Mode is automatically enabled to some games only. There are some games that require you to manually enable Game Mode before you can use this feature on your Windows 10 device.

    To manually turn on Game Mode, you can follow the steps below:

    • Press the Windows key on your keyboard + G.
    • Select Settings.
    • In the General tab, select the check box for Game Mode.

    If you have any other queries, feel free to post your concerns here anytime.
