Note: ​You can have a minimum of 1 DPI setting and a DPI SHIFT setting.

 

  1. ASSIGN DPI CONTROLS​. Clicking this will take you to the Assignments page. There is an automatic search in the SYSTEM​ tab with DPI performed to show you just the DPI commands. Not all mice have a DPI SHIFT command assigned to a button by default so check if you have this command assigned before using it.

 

Note:​ ​You might have to click the Left/Right arrows either side of the device to see the other button/key view

 

 

 

  1. REPORT RATE​. This is the speed at which the mouse reports to the computer. By default this should be 1000 and you shouldn’t need to change it. If you see skipping with the mouse pointer, reducing this might help.
  2. RESTORE DEFAULT SETTINGS​. Click this to reset the mouse DPI settings back to factory settings.
  3. DPI SHIFT SPEED. ​One of the DPI modes will be selected as the DPI SHIFT SPEED, this is indicated by being yellow

Note:​ ​For the G304/G305, the DPI states are color fixed to the DPI LED on the mouse. This means you will have the same DPI settings and features but the DPI SHIFT STATE will not always be the YELLOW colored DPI mode. Just follow the diamond icon.

 

In the example below, we can see that the user has moved the lowest DPI state (which was also the ​DPI SHIFT SPEED​) from 400 to ​2400 DPI​. The colour of the states will always be ​yellow​ for the lowest value and ​pink​ for the highest value.

Steering Wheel

The Steering Wheel settings configure your wheel’s sensitivity, turning and spring strength

 

 

 

  1. Sensitivity​. Default is 50. Alters the output response of the wheel to be more or less sensitive – sometimes known as a S-Curve. Leaving this slider at 50% will provide a linear 1:1 output. Between 51% and 100% will make the wheel increasingly more sensitive around the centre movement of the wheel. Between 0% and 49% will make the wheel decreasingly sensitive around the centre movement of the wheel.
  2. Operating Range​. Default is 900 (450° either side), which is the maximum range. When you set a value, the new value will be the hardstop. You will be able to push through the force feedback induced hardstop but no more values will be read from the wheel as you have reached the maximum. For example setting the Operating Range to 180 would have 90° either side.
  3. Centering Spring in Force Feedback Games​. Unticked by default. For the vast majority of titles you would normally have this disabled off because the games will be modelling the correct return to centre function of your wheel based on what the virtual car is currently doing. Should you wish to override this you can enable this and adjust the strength of that return to centre force using the slider
  4. Centering Spring Strength​. Default is 10. Adjust the value of this to your preference. 100 being the strongest spring strength, 0 being no centering spring at all.
  5. PER-PROFILE STEERING WHEEL SETTINGS LOCK​. Lock this to set the Steering Wheel configuration for all your profiles.
  6. GEAR SETTINGS​. Click this to take you to the ​Gear Settings​ page
  7. PROFILE SELECTOR​. Click here to change the ​User Profile​ you want to configure for.
  8. BACK ARROW​. Click the arrow to take you back to the ​Homepage​.

Pedal Sensitivity

Here you can configure your pedals sensitivity and combine the Gas and Brake into single axis for certain games that only support a single axis for acceleration.

 

 

 

Pedal Sensitivity.​ Covers the 3 axis and the sliders have the same behaviour as the ​Steering Wheel Sensitivity ​in the previous section – also known as a J-Curve: The slider alters the output response of the axis to be more or less sensitive. Leaving this slider at 50% will provide a linear 1:1 output. Between 51% and 100% will make the axis increasingly more sensitive. Between 0% and 49% will make the axis decreasingly sensitive.

 

  1. Clutch​. Default is 50, range 0-100
  2. Brake​. Default is 50, range 0-100
  3. Accelerator​. Default is 50, range 0-100
  4. Combined Pedals​. If checked, this will set the ​Accelerator ​and ​Brake ​pedals to become two halves of a single axis. This will help the pedals operate correctly in older racing titles that do not support separate axes for pedals.

 

Note:​ If Combined Pedals is left checked then the pedals will not behave correctly in modern racing titles. If you find that just one of your pedals is functioning by accelerating when pressed and braking when released then you should make sure that this option is not checked.

ON-BOARD MEMORY & PROFILES

Onboard memory profiles are profiles loaded directly on to the memory of the device. For example, this allows you to take that device to a Lan Party and still have a profile to use even if the PC you are using does not have G HUB installed.

 

By default, your device’s on-board memory mode will be set to off. This means that the profiles you have configured in G HUB will activate.

If you want to use the on-board memory profiles you will need to enable this in the devices GEAR SETTINGS

 

Note: ​Not all Logitech G devices have on-board memory modes available. Check the product page for your device specifications @https://support.logitech.com/category/gamingfor details or on the Logitech G store @https://www.logitechg.com

ENABLING ON-BOARD MEMORY MODE

When switch from off to on, You will receive a blue warning that ‘the device is in on-board mode. Enable software control to configure it and access all features?’

 

 

 

This is a reminder that whilst you are in on-board memory mode, that all software control through G HUB will be paused for that device. Clicking ENABLE ​ will turn the on-board memory mode to OFF, exactly the same as if you clicked the​ ON-BOARD MEMORY MODE button to OFF​

ON-BOARD MEMORY SLOTS

You configure the state of your profiles and which profiles you want assigned to each memory slot.

 

 

  1. This shows the state of your memory slots.
    • We can see this device has 5 slots. 3 slots currently have profiles assigned to them, SLOT 1 and SLOT 5 do not.
    • The current active slot is the one with the
    • Slots that can be cycled to and activated have a ● Slots that have been disabled have no circle.

 

 

When you click on a ​SLOT ​you will have a drop down menu:

 

    • DETAILS​. Click this to take you to the details of the settings assigned to that SLOT. This will show Lightsync, Assignments and other features depending on your device. From that page you can also click ​DISABLE FROM MEMORY ​which is the same as selecting DISABLE ​in the drop down.

    • DISABLE​. Select DISABLE to disable that SLOT. You won’t be able to cycle to this slot with the on-board profile cycle assignment or use this slot.
    • RESTORE DEFAULT PROFILE​. This restored the SLOT back to default behaviour.
    • ENABLE WITH NEW/REPLACE WITH​.

○ If the ​SLOT ​does not have a profile assigned, this will say ENABLE WITH NEW. Select from the current profile list below to assign a profile.

○ If the SLOT has a profile assigned, then this will say

REPLACE WITH. Select from the current profile list below to replace the current profile with a different one.

 

  1. RESTORE ALL ON-BOARD PROFILES TO DEFAULT​. When you click this button, it will revert all the ​SLOTS ​back to default behaviour. Similar if you clicked RESTORE DEFAULT PROFILE individually on each ​SLOT​.

USE STANDARD DELAYS

  • If ticked, the default delay between button/key presses in the editor will be 50ms. This means the delay between each action will be 50ms. If you change the number in the MACRO OPTIONS, for example to 60ms then each action in the macro would have a delay of 60ms. This can also be known as a global delay as it affects everything.
  • If unticked the delay will be shown between the down-press and up-press of each key/button. You can adjust any time by clicking the number and entering a new number. This delay affects the time between the event before and after only.

  1. Clicking ​DELAY ​has added the default 50ms to the end of the command
  2. Clicking ​DELAY ​has inserted a delay of 50ms to the start of the command. Any command added after will operate after that delay.
  3. This is the delay between the down and uppress of the 1 key and is generated through ​RECORD KEYSTROKES​ . You can change that timer by clicking on ​MACRO OPTIONS​ and unchecking ​USE STANDARD DELAYS​.

 

 

 

Assignments: Command Lighting

 

Command Lighting is a lighting effect to highlight in-game commands on your

 

Keyboard. You will need to start with a profile that built in game commands,

 

typically a game or APP that has been auto detected by G HUB. For example;

 

World of Warcraft, Battlefield 1, DOTA 2, ARK Survival Evolved etc.

 

 

 

  1. Select your keyboard, go to ​Assignments​ and select the ​COMMANDS ​tab.
  2. Make sure you have ​SHOW COMMAND LIGHTING​ ticked.
  3. Click on the group icon and you will be shown a color wheel. Select a color for your group.
  4. If you want to unassign a color click ​NO COLOR​.
  5. Once you have set a color to your group it will appear like the ​Interface and Movement​ groups above for example.

 

You can have a LIGHTSYNC effect and Command Lighting at the same time. The compatible effects are Starlight, Audio Visualizer, Echo Press and Screen Sampler. For the other effects, these will appear black / or no color.

 

 

We will start with a Command Lighting all set up:

 

 

 

We have the ​Pet​, ​Interface​, ​Movement ​and ​Abilities ​all with colors assigned to those groups. Those keys in those groups will now be the group color when the profile is active. So for example, the E Q W S A D keys will all be ​purple​.

 

 

 

In the example above we have an ​ECHO PRESS​ effect with the Command Lighting keys in their respective group colors.

 

If we select a ​FIXED ​effect for example:

 

 

 

We can see that the effect has now overwritten the Command Lighting, and now the command lighting will be deactivated.. This is because the LIGHTSYNC effects will both be trying to Illuminate same key all the time.

Assignments: Profile Cycle and Onboard Profile Cycle Commands

Profile Cycling​ allows you to cycle through profiles of the current active application

Onboard profile Cycling function​ will cycle through onboard memory profiles when G HUB is not running.

 

Note:​ ​Onboard memory profiles are profiles loaded directly on to the memory of the device. This allows you to take that device to a Lan Party for example, and still have a profile to use even if the PC you are using does not have G HUB installed.

 

 

 

In the example above, we selected a G903 mouse, gone to Assignments and selected the SYSTEM tab. We then dragged Profile Cycle​ from the ​G HUB​ group to the G305’s ​Forward ​button (Left Side). Note that Profile Cycle text is purple to indicate that this is a special command.

 

To assign the ​Onboard Profile Cycle​ command, look in the ​Mouse ​group in the ​SYSTEM ​tab. We then dragged this command to the ​Back ​button (Left Side).

LIGHTSYNC: Animations

An animation is a sequence of freestyle frames. This section will show you how to create your own spectacular lighting!

 

 

 

1.

In the

LIGHTSYNC

tab click the

ANIMATIONS

tab

 

2. Click on the drop down arrow under ​EFFECT and select ​ ​+ ADD NEW ANIMATION ​from the list.

 

Note: ​You can duplicate any lighting effect by clicking the icon. Delete any lighting effect by clicking the X. You can’t delete the preset lighting animations, only ones imported or created by yourself.

 

LIGHTSYNC: Create an animation

 

 

  1. COLOR​. Color wheel with brightness slider. Click on the wheel to select a color or if you know the RGB value, type this into the R, G & B text fields. The color selected can be dragged on to a new swatch (​1a​)
  2. TRANSITION​. Select the transition style. Transition is how the lighting effect fades from one frame to the next.
    1. Drag the transition effect onto the any frame in the frame editor. This will change the transition to the new one.
  3. DEFAULT CYCLE​. This selection controls how the frames animate.
    1. CYCLE​. The animation will start with the first (left) frame and continue to the end and then cycle back to the first frame again.
    2. REVERSE CYCLE​. The animation will start with the last (right) frame and go backwards through the frames to the beginning and then cycle back to the last frame again.
    3. BOUNCE​. Start at the first frame, animating to the last and then going back to the first frame again.

Good for animations like waves and explosions.

    1. RANDOM​. The animation will pick a frame at random.
  1. DEFAULT SPEED​. The speed at which the animation transitions. The shorter the time – the quicker the animation will happen. Ranges from 1000ms (1 second) to 50ms.
  2. Frame Editor Resolution​. Default is 100%, to see more frames in the editor reduce the frame size to 50%. To increase the size of each frame, increase to 150/200%. These are useful for checking frame transitions at low interval speeds.
  3. Frame Editor​. The editor has 3 parts:
    1. PLAY | STOP​ Button. Click to test out the animation, press to stop.
    2. Frames​. Each frame is displayed here.
      1. Select the one you want to edit by clicking it.
      2. Apply changes to the keyboard lighting (​7)​ using the same method as freestyle. I.e. have a color selected and either click individual keys or drag a box over a group of keys.
      3. You can click a transition style for the frame – or drag the transition style over to it.
      4. Resize the frame by hovering at the end of the frame until you get the double arrow, click and drag to resize the frame. The smaller the frame the quicker it will transition.

 

    1. Add Frame​. Click the sign to the right to add a new frame.
      1. To copy/paste a frame, select it, then press CTRL+C (Win) | CMD+C (Mac) and then paste using CTRL+V | CMD+C. If you are making small changes to a frame each time, this is a good method to use.
      2. To delete a frame, select it, then press backspace or delete.
  1. Freestyle Editor​. This allows you to change any color of any key in. Select the color you want your key to be and then click the key on the image. To color whole sections, drag a rectangle round the group and this will color all the keys inside. Do this for each frame.
  2. Animation Name​. Click the ​New Animation​ text to rename.
  3. Click the at the top to cancel the ​ANIMATIONS​ editor and go back to the ​LIGHTSYNC​ tab. If you have made any changes will see a prompt at the bottom asking if you would like to save any changes.

Audio Visualizer features for Keyboards

Keyboards have slightly different additional features to Audio: ​GRADIENT​, ​SMOOTH ANIMATION ​and ​CLIPPING ZONE and do not have ​PULSE ON BASS ONLY

 

 

 

  1. COLOR MODE: GRADIENT​. This plays the audio visualized on keyboard using a gradient of colors to indicate the different frequencies
  2. SMOOTH ANIMATION​. When this option is enabled the color will transition gradually between screen samples
  3. CLIPPING ZONE​. Click the button to enable the ​CLIP ZONE THRESHOLD ​Slider (​4)​ . Drag a colour from the color wheel on to the ​CLIPPING ZONE​ swatch if you want to change from red (default).
  4. CLIP ZONE THRESHOLD​. Drag the slider to the required value. The lower the value, the lower the volume needs to be to activate clipping. Clipped audio will be the color indicated by the CLIPPING ZONE swatch.

 

 

LIGHTSYNC: Screen Sampler

The Screen Sampler preset extends color from the screen to your LIGHTSYNC devices. You can choose any area on your monitor and assign it to any of the lighting zones. G HUB then tracks in real-time and matches speaker/keyboard/mouse and headset lighting with the colors on screen.

 

 

 

  1. EFFECT.​ Select ​SCREEN SAMPLER
  2. EDIT​. Click EDIT to take you to the screen sampler edit screen. This is where you can reposition and resize the sampling windows.
  3. Sample Windows​. Select one by clicking it. You will see that window highlighted in blue (​3a​) and the respective part of the device LED affected in blue (​3a​) as well. For keyboards, by default there are 5 sampling windows a. MID_RIGHT

. Click the

icon to edit the name of the sampler window. Press enter when you are

 

done or click off the window.

  1. Move/resize. ​Move or resize the sampler window to focus on certain events or indicators (for example health bars!).
  2. ADD NEW SAMPLE​. Click this to add a new sampler window. This adds the option to then link the samplers.

 

Note​: If you have added a new sample, you can now select this and then drag/selects keys on the keyboard which this will affect. Similar to the FREESTYLE lighting. Those keys assigned to the new sampler will then be unassigned from the previous sampler. You can’t have one key assigned to more than 1 sampler!

 

  1. REFRESH SCREEN​. If the screen you are sampling against has changed, click this to refresh.
  2. SELECT REFERENCE IMAGE​. This is useful, where you have a screenshot of ingame, and want to set your samplers to match a known setup. You can setup the sampler windows to the reference picture which will then match ingame when playing.
  3. Click the to take you back to the ​ ​LIGHTSYNC​ tab.

 

Screen Sampler for light and sound devices

There are 4 sampling windows by default for other devices and mice will only have 2 active samplers at any time.

 

 

 

The features are the same as before. For example here we have the Logitech G560 LIGHTSYNC PC GAMING SPEAKER. The Top Right sampler is highlighted blue and the associated LED section is also highlighted. You can add more sampler windows but only 4 can be assigned at one time to each of the 4 lighting zones (​a b c d​).

 

Screen Sampler for Mice

 

 

For mice, the ​Top left​ and ​Bottom​ left are assigned to the ​PRIMARY​ and ​LOGO​ lighting zones by default. Select the sampling zone and then click either lighting zone on the mouse to reassign. All other features and settings are the same.

 

LIGHTSYNC: G102 Lightsync

The G102 Lightsync mouse has some additional Lightsync effects to choose from. Whereas most of the gaming mice have the primary and logo lighting zones, the Lightsync mice have 3 lighting zones which can be utilized similar to the way keyboard lighting works:

 

 

 

  1. PRESETS​. This allows you to use presets explained in the LIGHTSYNC section for mice with this addition to the effects (​4​):
    1. COLOR DECOMPOSITION​. This is a breathing effect mixed with a color cycle from right to left. Each breathing fade is followed by a full color. The 3 lighting zones then mix the next 3 colors in the RGB cycle. In the example above, you can see its green-cyan-blue; after the fade, all 3 zones will be a blue then transition to a cyan-blue-purple. The speed of the transition is controlled by the RATE slider. The smaller the value the quicker the transition will be. Control the overall brightness with the BRIGHTNESS slider.
  2. FREESTYLE​. This allows you to change the color of each of the 3 zones. Select the zone to be changed, then click the swatch color you want to use from the swatch panel.
    1. You can configure the ​DEFAULT ​effect or select ​+ ADD A NEW FREESTYLE​. Click the NEW FREESTYLE​ text above the keyboard image to rename the effect.
    2. In the example below, we’ve selected a traffic light scheme, with red, amber and green zones. These remain fixed. If you want to add some effects to the zones, use the ​ANIMATIONS ​option.

 

ANIMATIONS​. Choose from lighting effects that are animated. Click on the duplicate icon and configure the colors and animation.

 

 

3.

to copy this effect

 

    1. OCEAN WAVE​. Waves of blue crashing out and back in.
    2. RED WHITE AND BLUE​. Cycle between those 3 colors.
    3. VERTICOOL​. Watch the rows light vertically
    4. + NEW ANIMATION​. Create your own custom animation.

 

 

+NEW ANIMATION

In the examples below, we have used red, amber and green in a 3 transition animation. Utilizing the bounce DEFAULT CYCLE to bounce back from green back to amber to red. If we left this as a cycle, then we would see green > red.

 

 

 

 

Microphone: Blue VO!CE

This section will look at the VOICE EQ and ADVANCED CONTROLS in a bit more depth. VOICE EQ

Make sure the box is checked, this enables the sliders and the

 

more

menu can be interacted.

 

 

You can modify the LOW / MID / HIGH levels from the main

 

window but if you need finer control, click the more

menu

 

button and this will bring up the VOICE EQ window.

 

 

 

 

At any time you can click the ​RESET ​button to revert back to default. Click ​DONE​ or X ​ once you are finished to go back​ to the ​Blue VO!CE​ tab.

ADVANCED CONTROLS

Once the checkbox is ticked you will see the ​HIGH-PASS FILTER, NOISE REDUCTION, EXPANDER/GATE, DE-ESSER, COMPRESSOR​ ​and​ ​LIMITER​ options.

 

 

 

HI-PASS FILTER​. Hi-Pass filter lets the high frequency information pass through the filter at a target frequency and rolls off all audio below the target frequency. This can be helpful to remove low frequency noise like car engines or heavy equipment and even fans in the room.

 

NOISE REDUCTION​. Noise reduction removes unwanted noise from an audio signal. Its best at removing consistently produced noises like fans, road noise, rain and other non-anomalous and consistent unwanted sounds.

 

 

Click

to bring up the

Noise Reduction

window

 

 

 

Note: ​At any time for any of the Advanced Control windows, you can click the RESET​ ​button to revert back to default.

Click DONE once you are finished or to cancel and they will go back to the Blue VO!CE tab.

 

Note:​ ​Any changes to the preset will change the icon blue for that Advanced Control EXPANDER/GATE. Expander is a noise gate with a variable range. This can be very useful to remove unwanted​ background noise like dogs barking, children playing, television, etc when not speaking into the mic. If you set the threshold slightly below the level of your voice, the gate will open only when you’re speaking and cut out any other noise when you’re not.

 

 

Click

to bring up the

Expander/Gate

window

 

 

 

DE-ESSER. De-esser listens to the high frequencies for hissing or sibilant sounds that are generally unpleasant. The tool​ listens at the target frequency (8KHz by default) nd compresses that frequency when the threshold is reached by the amount set by the ratio control.

 

 

Click

to bring up the

De-Esser

window

 

 

 

COMPRESSOR. Compressor reduces the dynamic range of an audio signal by attenuating the output in relation to the​ threshold and ratio controls. This essentially makes your voice signal more consistent in volume and therefore easier to hear whether you are screaming or whispering.

 

 

Click

to bring up the

Compressor

window

 

 

 

LIMITER. Limiter compresses the output of the audio signal in an infinite ratio essentially “limiting” the signal to never​ be able to get louder than the desired level

 

 

Click

to bring up the

Compressor

window

7. Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

How to reset commands or disable buttons

 

In the assignments section, we covered how to assign a command to a button. But if you want to remove that assignment or even disable a button then this guide will show you how:

 

 

 

To remove the binding, click on the button or the command name on the line. You will see two options:

 

  1. USE DEFAULT. ​Selecting this will reset the button/key back to factory default, with no programming. If it is one of the five buttons on a mouse (LMB/RMB/MMD/Forwards/Back) then it will behave as normal. Otherwise it will be a non programmed G Key as default.
  2. DISABLE. ​Selecting this will disable the button/key completely. This means it will not output anything, even if it’s one of the five buttons on a mouse (LMB/RMB/MMD/Forwards/Back). This can be useful where you don’t want to knock that button by accident.

 

As you can see, when disabled, the button/key will have a clear circle and no

 

entry. To re-enable the button/key, click on the circle and you will have 1

 

option:

 

 

A.

USE DEFAULT

 

 

Selecting this will reset the button/key back to factory default

Delete games and applications from the App list

If you have games and applications in your App list that you’ve manually added, or if they’re no longer installed on your computer, you can manually delete them from the App list.

 

NOTE: The DESKTOP APP and Default profile associated with it cannot be deleted. You can only delete apps detected by SCAN NOW if they appear as Uninstalled in STATUS.

 

 

 

1.

Select an APP you have added to the list.

 

  1. Click on Settings
  2. Click FORGET APP

 

 

How to duplicate profiles and macros to another game or application

If you have a profile an/or macros that you want to use with another app, you can copy them over. The following steps show you how:

 

  1. Open G HUB and click on the profile on the top of the home page. The Games & Application profile page opens.

 

 

 

  1. Select the profile you want to duplicate, then click and drag the profile onto the app you want to use it with. In the image below, the 7 Days To Die ‘​All Gaming Profile’​ has been dragged onto the Ark Evolved Game.

 

 

 

  1. Click on the target app (Ark Evolved in the example) to see the duplicated profile. The All Gaming Profile now also appears in the Ark Evolved Game, as shown below:

 

 

 

 

The same method can be used to copy macros over too. Select which macro you want to copy across by click and dragging it to another Game/APP

 

 

 

You can then check in the other game APP that it has copied over. Repeat the process for all the macros you want to duplicate.

 

How to blacklist a Game/APP from profile switching

If you have a game or application installed but don’t want to activate the profile for it, you can blacklist it and turn off the app. Here’s how:

 

  1. Open G HUB and click on the profile on the top of the home page. The Games & Application profile page opens.

 

 

 

  1. Select the Game/APP you want to blacklist and then click on the ​SETTINGS ​tab to bring up the details.

 

 

 

3.

Click the profile switching toggle to DISABLED.

 

 

NOTE ON STATUS​: ​The status of the APP/Game has no effect on the profile switching, this tells you how the Game/APP was added. The 2 statuses can be:

  1. INSTALLED.​ Installed by G HUB when it was installed or a SCAN NOW was run. This Game/APP can then also have built in integration or custom commands.
  2. CUSTOM APPLICATION. ​ Added by the user using the + ADD GAME OR APPLICATION button.

 

How to lock a profile for all games and applications

Typically, when G HUB is first installed, your Desktop default profile might be the persistent profile, until you start creating some new profiles and you remove this lock so profile switching is activated.

 

To force one profile to always be running and not to profile switch, follow these steps:

 

  1. On the Home page, click the Settings (gear) icon in the top right corner. The Global Settings page will open.

 

 

 

  1. In the ​APP SETTINGS​ tab, look for ​PERSISTENT PROFILE​. If no profile is selected as persistent, then ​NONE​ will be shown. Click the drop-down arrow to show the current list of APPs and the profiles associated with them. Select the profile you want to be persistent. In the example we have chosen the default profile of 7 Days to Die.

 

 

 

NOTE​: ​You will get a warning message asking:

Click YES to this to apply the setting or cancel to not make any changes.

How to check your profile activation path and troubleshoot profile switching

G HUB (Windows)

This FAQ covers some issues we see when profiles do not activate when the game/APP is running.

Checking the path of your executable

Some games have a launcher app which has a different executable to the actual game. This can cause some problems with profile activation, where the profile is activating during the launcher but not when the game is running.

How to check the path

Sometimes we see the launcher for a game is one path and then the actual game executable is another path. So selecting the launcher one might not work in the long run.

 

The easiest way is to check the game process with Task Manager

  1. Run the APP/game you want to check
  2. Once you are in the main APP GUI/playing screen: open Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and selecting Task Manager
  3. Right click the process that matches your APP/game and choose Open File Location
  4. This will run Explorer and open the folder location to the executable. Make a note or copy the path in the profile settings so you can use this in G HUB’s profile settings

 

 

How to add a path to an existing profile

 

  1. Go to the profile page and click on the APP/Game you want to modify
  2. With that APP/game highlighted, click the SETTINGS tab

 

You will see the settings information for that profile:

 

 

If you look at the ​PATH​, you can see what executables will activate the profile. If the one you need isn’t there, click +ADD CUSTOM PATH​, use Explorer to navigate to the correct .exe and click the executable to add. You can add more than 1 path for each Game/APP

 

NOTE: ​You can have more than 1 path in the list and this can be helpful if you have a profile that you want to activate in multiple APPs.

 

 

You can see in this example we have added another path. This can be especially useful when you move Steam installation folders for example.
