    I've done something similar before with Playnite (an open-source PC game library manager), which has an HLTB plugin.

    Playnite: The one with the most features and libraries available via addons and has a lot of options for customization. In my opinion the best one available for this purpose.

    Here is where I come in and recommend everyone check out Playnite:

    When I care about supporting a developer or publisher and they offer their product on their own storefront DRM-free, I will often go there to buy. Or I buy from GoG which takes a smaller cut. Playnite lets me launch my Steam and non-Steam games in a seamless fashion. Steam still does a great job as a game installer/patch manager, and helps me discover new games. But I'm not locked into paying them a 30% fee, which is pretty brutal for some smaller publishers.

  • PSA: Playnite Launcher has a "HDR Mode" per game!
    2 projects | /r/ultrawidemasterrace | 19 Sep 2023
    For anyone with any of the myriad of HDR monitors that prefers to leave desktop mode in SDR RGB, I just discovered that the excellent Playnite game launcher has a feature where you can enable HDR on a per-game basis. Simply tick the "Enable HDR support" option under "Advanced" tab for the settings of the games that you want HDR turned on for. I was previously using the now-abandoned AutoActions for this, so glad to see there's an alternative in a tool I already use.

    Use in what way specifically? You can add any executable into Playnite manually or add it as an additional action to an existing game.
  • Is Nvidia Shield good for streaming PC to Tv over LAN?
    2 projects | /r/nvidiashield | 5 Jul 2023
    I setup Sunshine to open an app called playnite ( which consolidates all of the games I have from all of the major stores (Steam, Epic, Battlenet, etc) into one controller friendly interface. This way I dont need a keyboard and mouse when I am in front of my tv.
  • Don't sleep on Star Trek Resurgence!

    I'm sorry for the trouble your friends got with Epic, surely other storefronts have more options / are better, but in the end - aside from the occasional issue, it's just a launcher and personally I don't mind wether a game is on Steam, or on Epic or U-play or GoG. They're just launchers and I don't even see them thanks to Playnite which merges them all :-)

    No, for PC it's on Epic. If you're concerned with another launcher, check Playnite which merges all of them and you don't even need to know which launcher is used in background :)
