    after clicking add new game the game doesnt show up

    (this cases happened not once
    this happened always after retrying the same game
    and other games got this cases too)

  4. for the very first title it let me give the file path for the exe the description and the box art IE a .png image after that it doesn't let me give the image anymore any solutions?

  5. The button: Download game image and description from web, is not working.
    I am running Windows 10.

    Any chance to get this feature working ?

    Thanx

  6. Hi guys, if any of you facing crashing issue, make sure there is a folder Gamer Desk Data in your C Drive, if there is none, create it. I have also uploaded a new version 1.3. Take a look at it.
    Thanks

  7. Good initiative, but your application bug I am completely under Windows 10 x64, and each time I run a game spits your application immediately.
    It's a shame, but I can not do anything with your program,
    I have to find a solution that works, because yours is too bug.
