Pausing for games...

From undoc.txt:

Quote:
 PauseWhileRunning=prog1,prog2,prog3,etc Note that prime95 will pause if the program name matches any part of the running program's file name. That is "foobar" will match "c:\foobar.exe", "C:\FOOBAR\name.exe", and even "C:\myfoobarprog.exe". By default, prime95 will check the list of running programs every 64 iterations, but not more frequently than every 10 seconds. You can adjust the time period with this prime.ini setting: PauseCheckInterval=n where n is the number of seconds between checking which programs are running.
This is my prime.ini line:

Code:
PauseWhileRunning=et.exe,wolfmp.exe,wolfsp.exe,mcm2.exe
The problem is with et.exe because every program I run that has "et" in it causes Prime95 to pause!

I thought by naming it specifically it would happen only for that particular program... Unfortunately I have a pile of programs that have "et" as part of their name!

If this is a bug, then you might can workaround the problem by putting the directory name instead of the executable name in the pause list.

Yes...

Yes, that works... The key is to find some part of the path that is unique and list that...

Thanks!
