Anyway, I think I found the bug in %APPDATA%/Raptr/data/game_detection_pc.json
it says
Code:
"checkfile": "C:\\Program Files\\Minecraft\\Minecraft.exe"
Now, if you select "C:/Program Files/Minecraft/" as the Minecraft-folder, it will result in "C:/Program Files/Minecraft/C:/Program Files/Minecraft/Minecraft.exe" as the String used to verifiy if the exe is there...
Which obviously will always fail >.<


.. should be
Code:
"checkfile": "Minecraft.exe"
no?
You are right but that then the odd case would be that with other people raptr actually detects it

Hah, I just found a workaround:
I put the exe into C:/Program Files/Minecraft/ and ran the automatic game scan. That way, I didn't have to choose any folder.
Success

So automatic works, but not manual? Haha. Maybe that's how I had to do mine and I just don't remember. =P

Manual detection has NEVER worked.

Minecraft detection has always been automatic scan only.

Ah, ok. It's been a while since I've added it, so I guess I just forgot about that.

The detection was also briefly broken a little while ago, for me and some other dudes at least.
But it looks like they fixed it.

Hooray!

the .json file should be looking for Minecraft.exe ALONE, not in the Program Files directory in which I'm sure other gamers install it in its separate directory like me (In G:\games\Minecraft). I suggest the devs edit the line so it looks for ONLY Minecraft.exe as it causes complications as seen by myself and the OP.

So I guess editing the .json should work?

EDIT: I can't detect Minecraft.exe from G:\Games\Minecraft.exe! What to do to get it detecting?

Minecraft detection is a kind of a hackish way to detect because of the way it uses java to actually run.
Minecraft.exe is more akin to a launcher for the javaw.exe.

I reiterate, the only way to track minecraft right now is to have the minecraft.exe in the correct folder as explained earlier in this thread, and then use the "scan for games" function in the client. There is no other way.
