As requested by one or two forum members here - I'm creating this thread to allow more people to notice this program that allows you to add and edit information and BoxArt shown in your Vista Game Explorer (or VGE).

The most recent release of this program is VGEE Beta 2.13 - and you can get it from here

As the program is almost 100% complete - please post any bugs, suggestions and requested features here as soon as possible.

A few things to note:

* Obviously - you can only run this program in Windows Vista. 32bit and 64bit versions have been tested. I can't recall if non-English versions of Vista have been tested as of yet (let me know if you've tried).

* It is crucial that when you add or edit games in the editor, that you have your VGE closed (not just minimized).

Note - the VGE is the Windows folder that shows you your games (accessible via Start-->Games)

the VGEE is my program which adds and edits games.

I think it wouldn't hurt to add the remaining fields that are not in the VGE either in the main interface or an advanced view such as:

Rating

Publisher

Last Played

Release Date

Product Version

Home Page Link(Right Click)

Support Link(Right Click)

Code to automatically change the Shortcut Link path and properties

And possibly some code to automatically get the information from allgame.com

Additionally I found a MSDN Article which states that the DirectX SDK Has GDF (Game Definition File) Editor which seems to control all of the values and not just some:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/b...435(VS.85).aspx

It may be worthwhile to post up that executeable and modify your program to install the GDF into the registry so that all of the information available can be edited...

Well - I like to think this is still a team project. So if you can work out the method of how to change those items, then I will endeavour to code it in. I'm also trying to keep the size of the window below 800x600 for obvious reasons.

The Publisher info can already be edited - there's a toggle button to change between Publisher and Developer. Release Date is already there in VGEE too. If anyone knows how to change the Rating or Product version - please post here so I can try and code something up. Remember that I started making VGEE before I even knew how to add games manually - it was the other forum members who helped out and I hope that this willl continue to be the case.

This app completly avoids GDF's. I've read the MSDN pages, I've downloaded the SDK and played around with it - and I really don't want to go down that track. It really doesn't make much sense to me, and then how on earth would I be able to code that into VGEE when the users don't have the SDK installed on their PC's, and so on. :(

Currently VGEE attempts to change the Home Page shortcut to one of the URLs used for the Publisher or Developer (I don't think it's working 100% atm though). I'll try and make a separate place for it, which means I'll have to redesign the app again.

If you have any ideas on what the new version of VGEE should look like - please post them here or email me at vge.editor AT gmail DOT com

Well as far as automatically retrieving the info that could be done with a few http requests to the allforgame.com site via GET and all you would have to do is retrieve the request information and cipher through to retrieve the information in between certain td's etc. This could be done in a separate form which would pop up on a button click and have basic fields such as game, publisher and developer and make requests to the allforgame.com site which would retrieve the search results and allow selection via your interface.

As far as the GDF method that is a bit more complex possibly the users here or yourself could create GDF's for games and then users would be able to download and use them when needed but that is a bit much work... An alternative would be to look at the available GDF API and use a generic GDF that your app could recompile and install and would bundle the needed dll's from the SDK to allow your application the resources it needs to install the GDF compiled with the resources selected in the VGEE. The application could either patch the GDF or use the compiler in a hidden command prompt that runs in a background.

I would be more then willing to help out on this front, I know my way around C++.net and C#.net well enough to develop in them.

Also please do not take any of what I said as a insult only constructive criticism, you have done a wonderful job on this application and I was only seeking to help you make it better by allowing the full customization that end users would like to see.

1 - I don't know how to do that. Feel free to provide more technical examples.

2 - I was hoping that all of use could create .vge files with accurate information and BoxArt. Then I could host them all online and we wouldn't need AllGame.com as much. I didn't spend that much time getting the improting code working for no-one to use it I hope. :)

No insult taken - I'm only a new(ish) programmer. This is my first app written in the .NET framework (in VB .NET 2005 express) since first learning VB6.

My goals for VGEE are the following (which require help from all the users):

1. For every game you own (have installed) - use VGEE to set all of the information 100% perfect (same as AllGame.com). Then create export every game to a .vgi file (load each game and click the Export menu item on the right in VGEE). Email them all to me at vge.editor@gmail.com

Then I can host them online for everyone to use.

2. Game Version Number. I have no idea how to change this via the registry (don't tell me about GDF's). Please try and work something out and let me know any results you fins out.

3. Game ratings. All new games you add will inherit the rating of the game they overwrite. Can you try and create some sort of table that lists each Game Rating available and what reg key values are used for them. If changing the game rating is as simple as copying the reg keys from games that already have the desired rating, then I should be able to get VGEE to let you choose whatever rating you want. That'll upset Microsoft. :o) Maybe when they try and stop us from editing game ratings they can also improve their VGE so that Ino-one needs to use VGEE anymore. Wouldn't that be great.

4. Custom Icons. I had a shot at this in VGEE Beta 2.10 and thought I had it working - but people reported problems with it - so I've commented out the code and disabled the controls on the window. If people can post a fail-safe method for chaning the icon shown in your VGEE if you don't like BoxArt then I'll have another crack at it. There was also some clonfliction between the Icons and Command Line Arguments for the games used.

That and a few other bugs that I have made note of is all that I really need to do to finish VGEE once and for all.

To retrieve game information from AllGame.com you can use what is called a WebRequest.

Here is a sample from VB.net Heaven:

http://www.vbdotnetheaven.com/UploadFile/k...questClass.aspx

I don't use VB or VB.net much however I do use ASP and ASP.net which are very similar in syntax.

What you would need to do is then parse through it by using a string match or expression to find out the data you wanted.

Ratings information is retrieved from Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\<GAMEIDHERE>

Specifically the Key : RatingsInfo

Which contains data like this.

<Ratings xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:GameDescription.v1"><Rating ratingID="{7A53B0BE-B92D-4e8a-A11F-8E6F9F3C575B}" ratingSystemID="{768BD93D-63BE-46A9-8994-0B53C4B5248F}"></Rating><Rating ratingID="{464299D0-6D57-47e8-AA53-A849CBEA12CB}" ratingSystemID="{36798944-B235-48ac-BF21-E25671F597EE}"></Rating><Rating ratingID="{17A01A46-0FF6-4693-9F18-D162C2A5C703}" ratingSystemID="{30d34abd-c6b3-4802-924e-f0c9fc65022b}"></Rating><Rating ratingID="{9236ED52-B5FE-4227-8EB3-353C0BDABECF}" ratingSystemID="{C705DCF4-6AFE-4f4f-BC51-21807E4E5CFB}"></Rating><Rating ratingID="{FCC61B08-1352-4e5b-9D96-986EAB2FC503}" ratingSystemID="{5B39D1B8-ED49-4055-8A47-04B29A579AD6}"></Rating></Ratings>

Quick searches of the registry reveled nothing for ratingID ratingSystemID or any of the GUID values to follow those fields. :( Although I do notice that every game has its own rating from this key (for description) and can be created just like we create games.

There is another key with some related information to the games at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Extensibility\Entry Points\<ApplicationIDHere> however nothing to do with the rating or version that I noticed.

Only thing I can explain is that there is definitely something to do with the ApplicationID since that does not change and stays from the cloned game.

Might also be worth to take a look at C:\Windows\system32\GameUXLegacyGDFs.dll and see if anything catches your eye. The game version number is somehow derived from the Exe of that game I believe and it would have something to do with the :

AppExePath & ConfigApplicationPath In my opinion.

Let me know if you need any more help and I will continue to play around with this stuff and see what else I can find.

Also to have a custom Icon: Make a shortcut of the game you want to have the custom icon, then change the icon via the right click menu, then simply drag it to the GameExplorer...

______________

UPDATE

After a little more searching I believe I may have found the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Parental Controls\Ratings Systems

Specifically the subkey Games and LCIDS

Please take a look into that and let me know what you have found.

_______________

Further Update

This is definitely directly related to the ratings system.

The ratingSystemID="{30d34abd-c6b3-4802-924e-f0c9fc65022b}" value exactly matches this value from the above ratings value, It would seem that all that is left to find is where the String and binary values are stored for these keys and how to edit them.

_______________

YAY

I Have found IT:

C:\Windows\System32\cero.rs

This file contains data for the game rating and allows you to add new ratings!!!

The rating ID for the above game 17A01A46-0FF6-4693-9F18-D162C2A5C703 corresponds to this data:

<Rating>

<ID>{17A01A46-0FF6-4693-9F18-D162C2A5C703}</ID>

<Level>1</Level>

<ShortName>100</ShortName>

<LongName>101</LongName>

<Description>102</Description>

<Graphic>CERO_E.PNG</Graphic>

<MinimumAge>3</MinimumAge>

<Deprecated>{24D81953-37B6-4e5e-B7DF-2B7D7AA6E53B}</Deprecated>

</Rating>

<Rating>

<ID>{24D81953-37B6-4e5e-B7DF-2B7D7AA6E53B}</ID>

<Level>2</Level>

<ShortName>112</ShortName>

<LongName>113</LongName>

<Description>114</Description>

<Graphic>CERO_A.PNG</Graphic>

<MinimumAge>3</MinimumAge>

</Rating>

Other files such as:

C:\Windows\System32\pegi.rs

C:\Windows\System32\pegibbfc.rs

C:\Windows\System32\esrb.rs

C:\Windows\System32\pegi-fi.rs

C:\Windows\System32\pegi-pt.rs

C:\Windows\System32\usk.rs

C:\Windows\System32\oflc.rs

Are the other rating systems so each would correspond to which ever is related to your region.

Americans would want the esrb.rs file and it contains the same types of data as posted above.

I hope this is the information you were looking for. I will not being the search for the versioning information either now or later when I have more time :)

Hope that was enough help and info and if you need anything else please let me know.

After reviewing http://static.scribd.com/docs/cqz8yn7t15zl...TIAL_VIEW=width

It would see that a API already exists and that a GDF is simply a XML file with values. This is not hard to create at all and then simply pass the XML values to the API which is documented very well on that page/PDF with examples. the way we are doing it here is simply a hack up and reinventing a wheel that microsoft has already created and made very simply to use... additionally it seems our method will never allow for changing most of the information due to most of the values that are deeper such as ApplicationId not changing from the initial value.... hopefully you will implement that or prove me wrong...

I do believe that you can use your .vgi files and simply embed the GDF information into them, GDF is only XML data...

The following code is all that would need to be used

HRESULT AddGame(

const BSTR bstrGDFBinaryPath,

const BSTR bstrGameInstallDirectory,

GAME_INSTALL_SCOPE installScope,

GUID* pguidInstanceID

);

This article should show you how to create a GUID for use in the last field http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.guid.aspx

Parameters

bstrGDFBinaryPath

[in] A string that contains the fully qualified path of the binary file that contains the game definition file (GDF).

bstrGameInstallDirectory

[in] A string that contains the path to the game's installation folder. For legacy games, this folder must match the folder in the Microsoft legacy database. For more details, contact the Microsoft Windows Gaming and Graphics Developer Relations Group.

installScope

[in] GAME_INSTALL_SCOPE that defines whether the game is to be installed for all users or only the current user. If set to GIS_ALL_USERS, administrative access is required. If set to GIS_CURRENT_USER, administrative access is not required.

pguidInstanceID

[in, out] A pointer to a GUID to emit or receive the InstanceID associated with the game.

Return Values

This function returns an HRESULT. Use the SUCCEEDED and FAILED macros to test the return value of this function.

AddGame returns S_FALSE if the game was already installed on the system. This situation occurs if a game is added more than once with the same ApplicationID and GameInstallDirectory; that is, AddGame is called twice for the same game installed in the same folder.

Remarks

Note This function can cause lockdown by parental controls, rendering the game's directory unusable, so it must be one of the last steps in your installation phase. For a list of installation steps, see Getting Started With Game Explorer.

Callers should store the instanceID returned by this call, as it is necessary to call IGameExplorer::RemoveGame or IGameExplorer::UpdateGame, and to create tasks for the game in Game Explorer.

If a pointer to a GUID_NULL is passed, this method creates and returns an InstanceID for the caller.

If a pointer to an actual GUID value is passed in, this method uses that GUID as the InstanceID. If that InstanceID already exists on the system, the call fails with E_INVALIDARG.

It is not necessarily an error to call this function on a title that is already installed on the system, since titles can have multiple instances on the same system.

This method can also upgrade an older game that is no longer supported to a newer, supported version. To achieve that, please make sure that the GDF (described in The Game-Definition-File (GDF) Schema) has the same gameID attribute as was used for Game Explorer's legacy game services. For more information, see Legacy Game Support. To arrange access to your game ID, contact the Microsoft.

Requirements

Header: Declared in GameUX.h.

_______

GAME_INSTALL_SCOPE

Defines whether a game being installed is installed for all users or only the current user.

typedef enum

{

GIS_NOT_INSTALLED,

GIS_CURRENT_USER,

GIS_ALL_USERS,

} GAME_INSTALL_SCOPE;Constants

GIS_NOT_INSTALLED

Reserved for internal use only.

GIS_CURRENT_USER

Game is to be registered for only the current user.

GIS_ALL_USERS

Game is to be registered for all users.

Requirements

Header: Declared in GameUX.h.

it is definitely not that hard and I would even possibly be willing to create a c# application to add the data properly so long as you can provide me with enough information on your .vgi files and what is stored in them.

let me know.

:)

__________

UPDATE

After a quick review of the UpdateGame method of the IGameExplorer Object it seems that

HRESULT UpdateGame(

GUID guidInstanceID

);

is all that you would need to call. Simply haveing a .vgi or .anything that has the updated information would be used with the GUID of the game (which would have to be generated requiring a small change in the create game code) could be used to update existing games or create new games for use the Game Explorer ... im going to give my try at making a small interface for you to work off or for us to colaborate on.

Wow - where do I start in replying to all that? :o :)

You're right - I probably could create a .GDF file and even import a file into the VGE. It's mainaly the middle step of converting the GDF and BoxArt into a binary file. You probably didn't post anything about it b/c it's so easy or something. VGEE already has to create new GUIDs when adding new games (where did you think I got them from) :)

You might have forgotton that I live in Australia. And not one of my 'supported legacy' games has any ratings info. Therefore I'm completly reliant on you guys for a reliable solution if VGEE continues to use the registry method. Perhaps you could email me something like a case statement (language-independant if you like).

Select case Whatever_rating_the_user_picked

Case E 'Everyone

'regvalue = ????????

Case M

'regvalue = ???????

'etc

End Select

>>Only thing I can explain is that there is definitely something to do with the ApplicationID since that does not change and stays from the cloned game.

<<

Yeh - I don't change the WMID and GameID values in the registry. If you've read that pdf thingy on my old website you'll see that I export the GameToOverwrite - then change the reg values of the overwritable game (except ones like WMID) - then VGEE reads the exported reg file as a text file - changes the GUID to a new one and imports it.

>>Also to have a custom Icon: Make a shortcut of the game you want to have the custom icon, then change the icon via the right click menu, then simply drag it to the GameExplorer...<<

That might give a custom icon - but it don't think it will help change the icon of a game already added. My previous attempt was to just change the icon of the Play.lnk shortcut (I assume you know where that's located). I thought it worked, but others reported that it didn't do anything.

I opened up Cero.rs in Resource Hacker and saw the XML data there too. Looking good. Unfortunately I don't know what to do with it, I don't know which files relate to which regions (any Australian ones???) and so on. If you have GoogleTalk (http://talk.google.com) or less preferably MSN you'll have to chat with me and I'll see if I can compile a test version to send you and you can let me know if it works. If I create a virtual PC and install Vista on there - could I set it up differently to make it think I'm in a different region so that I could test this stuff myself perhaps? If you get ratings, etc - let me know what region Windows is set to, etc.

I will PM you my gmail info.

The ratings info can be seen by looking at the .png file described in the XML info.

I have a sample managed c++ app that connects to WMI and is able to list all services, im adding the feature now to list all games by using WQL. Once I have that I will be able to make a very simply update GDF info button to load the gdf from any type of file and set the information into the registry.

I should be on later tonight or tommorw i need a break from all this dev lol

I've done some perusing on the net and have created this Excel spreadsheet.

All that's missing are the GUIDs that correspond to the actual ratings - which can be entered into a downloaded copy of the spreadsheet and then emailed top me. Might need to work out what Ratingsystem GUID corresponds to the actual ratings systems first though. Then you can just copy the GUID from the Ratingsinfo from the registry.

I'll try and keep the uploaded spreadsheet up to date (except when i'm asleep) :)

Don't worry about the spreadsheet - I finished it. Used the GDF maker to create GDFs with only one Rating System and Rating for all the different ones there. I knew it would come in handy for something.

I'll try and manually change a game's rating later on - I have to go out for now. Feel free to use the spreadsheet to try it out yourself if you don't mind playing with the registry, etc.

In order to progress with the modifying of game ratings - I need some registry exports from people to compare. If any of your GUIDs for your games have keys called 'RatingsInfo' can you please export you whole User-SID key (ie S-2367532523-32532-532-353) and email them to vge.editor@gmail.com - thanks.

Thanks to 72001 (Julius F), editing ratings may soon be possible. I'll keep the details to a minimum for now, and I might have a shot at redesigning the GUI for VGEE and release it as Beta 3. Hopefully the next release should be available sometime this month. At least 90% of the credit for making Ratings and other new items (WEI requirements, and version info) editable will have to goto Julius - so please be sure to thank him. :)

If you're into multimedia, etc and have a few ideas for the new GUI please email me. The minimum resolution requirements will likely be increased from 800x600 to 1024x768 - hopefully this shouldn't really affect anyone, though.

Hi,

How will you be able to edit the game version info? Isn't that stored in the .exe file from the game?

E.g. I have a version from the game Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance. VGE says it is version 1.0.0.1

But I know that is not true, I just installed a patch to version 1.5.3598

So, can you make it, that we can see the patched version?

Thanks

We'll see.

Currently we are just adding code into VGEE that will allow us to read/write to dll/exe files that have info.

When you create a GDF - there are two options regarding Version Info - you can manually type in the version number 'x.x.x.x' or tell Windows to use the version stored in the .exe file - Iit would seem a number of game devs are using the firs option which is wh it's not updating.

I just got Google to fix that the other day - and it's come back. Grr.

I get no email notification when that happens - and I have no idea why it's being disabled. You can get VGEE from here - http://vge.editor.googlepages.com/

That seems to be a bug in the Supremene Commander Patcher.

It doesn't call UpdateGame and give a new GDF file.

<Version>

<VersionNumber versionNumber="1.0.0.1" />

</Version>

Is the exact exerpt from the GDF of Supremene Commander after applying the same patch you applied.

I checked Gears of War and after the update the GDF has clearly changed to reflect the new version

<Version>

<VersionNumber versionNumber="1.0.3339.131" />

</Version>

The new VGEE will make this value easily editable....

Without giving away too much I will say that all information which can be seen by Vista can be completely edited.

This includes:

Icon's

BoxArt

Rating's Info

Content Discriptor's

Performance Rating Information

Developer/Publisher Information

and Much much more.

It will now also no longer require a signed game to be installed to copy from. It will make this game by default.

VGEE will now allow full customization of every aspect of the Game's Information giving you the complete Game Explorer Experience!

If you guys have any suggestions or comments you should voice them now as either myself or Ryan will be able to put these thoughts into good use in VGEE.

Expect News very soon!

It will now also no longer require a signed game to be installed to copy from. It will make this game by default.

VGEE will now allow full customization of every aspect of the Game's Information giving you the complete Game Explorer Experience!

If you guys have any suggestions or comments you should voice them now as either myself or Ryan will be able to put these thoughts into good use in VGEE.

Expect News very soon!

Very glad to hear that, gentlemen. I appreciate your hard work that's going into this! :)

There is one big request thats really buggin me add it needs to be added!!!!

When adding any game from STEAM VGEE will not add the game if you have the steam switch in the location box but if you remove it and have it so it just launches steam it works fine.

So it need to be able to accept switch commands for steam, dosbox etc
