Hello everyone, i'm new here and hope that this hasn't been asked before or that i have overlooked it in the settings, but is there an option to close Launchbox automatically when launching a game? Would be nice not having to close it manually everytime to free up the ram it takes up.

Closing LB on start of a game would break a lot of the functionality of the application. Thankfully most of the RAM when moving to a new application should be moved to the page file when running another application so while it shows the memory being used, not all of it is actively loaded to RAM when playing a game so SHOULDN'T see as much of a hit to the application. Though that process only happens when you NEED the RAM but it's not there so it may cause some slow down the first time it does it, but afterwards should level itself out. If you're not seeing it level out it may be worth while to increase your page file size via Windows settings.
