Windows shortcut or .bat compatibility commands


Recommended Posts

So I have all my windows games I use in Launchbox in a shared drive/portable. Works awesome! However, some of the older games requires compatibility modes to be set like DPI settings or color mode or windows version. The down side to just right clicking and setting the compatibility mode is that it only applies on the PC you do it on. So if you go to that game on another PC, you have to dig into the folders and set the compatibility mode again on any other PC.

So.... My question is, does anyone know how to set commands in a windows shortcut, or even commands in a .bat file to set certain compatibility modes like the color, 640x480, or disable DPI? Shortcut or .bat would work just fine for me.

Example of what I mean in shortcut is setting parameter like: "g:\game\game.exe" -fullscreen -winxpmode -640x480 command. (This is just guess example and is not actually)

Or Even commands/parameter command-lines inside launchbox when editing a game?

Thanks! :)
