Damn I thought I would be able to manually add game ratings with that, but then I read this:

Quote:
For the ratings to be interpreted and displayed by Game Explorer, you must digitally sign the DLL or executable file that contains the GDF data by using a trusted Certificate Authority. If your game is not signed, parental controls considers your game to be unrated, even if you have specified a rating in the GDF

I got the official MS one if anyone wants it... its 91Kbs big, hehe. It allows you to make it exactly how the official ones come without any chance of screwing up windows.

Also aside from Lost Planet, Steam games such as CS, CSS, HL2 etc are really incompatible with the Games Explorer, there are multiple entries added for each and none of them actually WORK in launching the game. Changing the file path with this program didn't help either. So I hid all my Steam games except for Lost Planet, which works well in the Games Explorer.
This is more due to bugs in steam than anything else. If you notice, with about half of the games and modifications on there, if use that "create desktop shortcut" option, half of the time icon it creates doesn't even work right.

works, just don't like one thing about it, it doesn't like normal box art size images, it stretches box art to aquare images.
