Enhancer 1.051 by Sh1nRa358

    Changes your desktop resolution to a different resolution
when using user defined programs and restores your original resolution once said app has expired. This
is but one of many features of this program. See the rest of its features below.

Who is this for:
    This tool is for people who do not like the size of the desktop icons when in a higher resolution
but enjoy the resolution benefits that is given to certain programs. It's also for users who tire of
lazy developers that don't include the essential features of their programs.

Who this isn't for:
    This is one of the Ultimate programs necessary for a great PC gaming experience!

What is it for:
    This tool was created to accompany poorly coded games/apps in order to support their maximum resolutions
if it isn't supported correctly. Games that use your max rez as a factor in determining the game's internal
rez for example. It is also used for if a game doesn't detect your highest DSR factor unless your desktop
is already set to it. Think of it as a baggy pair of pants. If you are a small person, the pants will be
loose. If you are a bigger person, the pants will get filled in. So the tighter they are, the lesser
the wrinkles. Internal rez is like the person's size. Desktop rez is like the amount of room that needs
to get filled. The closer the desktop rez is to your desktop rez, the lesser the jaggies.

Lightning Returns Steam is a good example. If you increase your internal rez without changing your desktop rez (if desktop rez is
smaller) you will have to cake your game up with post processing effects to barely get rid of all jaggies.
But if you match your desktop rez with the internal rez, the game will be significantly jaggy reduced! This
is why you see most games change the desktop rez with the internal rez it is taking.

Low Int Rez + High Desk Rez < High Desk Rez + High Desk Rez.
However, High Desk Rez + Higher Int Rez could go either way, depending on how much higher the Int Rez is.
But if it is not that far past, it could improve the picture even more!

Low end 4K (3840x2160) could still leave a bit of jaggies behind. However, high end 4K (4036x2304) seems to
obliterate jaggies completely :) However, this can only support the rezzes that your pc can support. So if your rez can't get that high, consider the same for your emulators and games that can get that high internally.

This tools also rids the moronic implementation of blacklists/whitelists that MSI Afterburner uses for 2D/3D
profiles. This tool makes it way less bothersome to overclock your graphics card per app! Just make sure
MSI Afterburner is running and set up your 2D/3D profiles in-app and this tool with do the rest for you!
Just indicate the program you want to overclock on in the whitelist and you are good to go.
No more wasting energy for games you can play on 25% cpu power and no more manually overclocking just to
play a graphical intensive game.

Enchancer also downclocks and overclocks your cpu via the windows maximum processor power settings. Just set
your overclock to your cpu with your favority program and Enhancer will manage the rest! Works the same way
as the above feature with the GPU but this time with your CPU. This is for people whom Intel XTU isn't
compatible with. CPU Overclock per app!

Other features include, but aren't limited to:
    -launching your app with commandline options; no more wasting time making and configuring shortcuts!
    -hiding your mouse cursor on idle. Setting 0 = Mouse Cursor Completely Off; 1 = Cursor Always On; 2 = Hide After
        Inactivity and show when activity resumes
    -toggling snap to and cursor trails; some programs don't work well with these features. that is why they are here.
    -temporarily disabling the screensaver per app
    -making pc games save where ever you want them to. know where they save, plug that location in and then plug in the new location
        and it will take care of the rest for you! (experimental!)
    -Monitor Arrangements; can position them however you like to direct the mouse cursor path toward the 2nd monitor through any side of the screen.
        You can check the coordinates you want by right clicking on your desktop > choosing change resolution > and dragging the monitor pictures to
        create an overlay of the coordinates.

NOTES: The best way for the ultimate gamer to play anything is to have an SSD as their OS drive and an HDD for their
program installs and games. Never install everything on the same drive or you're gonna have a bad time :P
With that said, make sure MSI Afterburner, Rivatuner Statistics Server, and Enhancer are not positioned on the system

(untested on a standard user account)

Enjoy the extra clarity!~
