Ability to hide specific verified games

    I have an issue with www.mudlet.org taking over my "Playing ..." all the time, and even renaming the .exe file doesn't work, so it's *not* just using the exe file as a detection parameter. I renamed my exe to "Not_Mudlet.exe" and "Some_random_program.exe" but no luck. That's the thing, there is *no* workaround for this one.

    what about if it's changed to a game that exists, It might only recognize the exe file if the name is on their game list which also makes it stupid that it also has non-games in said list. I don't if that is a workaround people want but it seems this feature is just useless, I have it completely turned off now.

    I've actually managed to get a response from the Discord Support:

    "It's good to know that users are actively upvoting threads from our forums since feedback contributes greatly to our decision making of which features and fixes to implement in the future based on what our community wants! However, I cannot promise you that anything will be carried on right away. Our team would have to do a long discussion first before anything can be done. Rest assured, I'll be passing along the feedback to the team."

    Hopefully this actually means that someone (eventually) will take a look into this suggestion. Fingers crossed!

    Give us the ability to only track games we wish to be tracked.

    I like sharing when I'm playing certain games, but not all the games I'm playing.

    Wow 2 years and zero movement on such a simple feature. I use the VR performance overlay app FPSVR and that's what Discord thinks I'm playing every day...

    Yeah, I was trying to make a simple joke where I renamed one of my always running apps to "Zooming" and it would say how long. But when I open a game up, it resets that and I wish I could disable it.
    DISCORD WE BEG !

    Seriously, turning this on and off by hand based on what you're going to play is ridiculous, and easy to forget about.  This NEEDS to be a feature, or the whole "currently playing" feature is worthless.

    Quickly approaching 3 years of us begging for this... But you want us to spend money on discord nitro...

    How is this still an issue?

    Get it together. I don't need my dedicated server application showing for days at a time because you won't implement a simple "don't show this game" toggle.

    This feels like a must need feature renaming games is fine but being able to toggle specific games you want showing would really make the entire game activity feature perfect. I hope they listen to this long-lasting and highly requested wish.

    #Trekari (and others), while I do still believe being able to blacklist built-ins, did you check whether your app/game shows up in the list and then delete them? The ones that DO show up and get deleted there should not get auto-detected again, and at least THAT bit seems to be working correctly...

    (Synergy is an example that comes to mind where deleting it from the list made it disappear from the 'playing' updates...)

    It does, I have, and it comes back every time.

    Yeah, I don't believe that deleting it from that list actually deletes anything at all. I've tried that with many entries, including deleting everything on the list. They all come back right away.

    Maybe it works on custom entries you add yourself?

  • Tsath

    Yeah, it just comes right back. Doesn't work. I got this recommended as a solution as well, but it doesn't work.

    Bruh... Discord REALLY just ignored us for 3 years?! How is this STILL not an option?! Smh🤦🏾‍♂️

    This problem is quite annoying. I use the software synergy for mouse/keyboard sharing. However, this is not the game synergy.....

    I use ShareX for screenshots. When I open Discord for the first time, the program defining as a game. But if I open game activity settings, ShareX become a program, not a verified game (this state saves until reboot).
    Well, I wouldn't care about it, but it overlaps my Spotify activity status. So it's still a problem.

    Why is this still not a thing?

    discord made from gamers for gamers; this should definitely be in.
    would also help fighting the annoyance of league-of-legends-launcher beeing considered a game, when it clearly is not.

    +1, this feature would be amazing,

    Please add this feature, it's ridiculous small but incredibly helpful things like this take so long to be implemented.

    +1. This would be a great feature to have. Please allow us to blacklist programs from showing up on the activity feed

    It's ridiculous that this isn't a feature.  In fact if I remember correctly at one time it was?

    It's been 2 years.. Guess Discord is bummed out on how to implement this one for some reason. fbm.

    Please implement this! Why is Synergy even verified? It's not a game or even a full screen application.

    because Synergy is also the name of a Half-Life Mod, and discord see the app running, therefore it think you are playing Half-Life Synergy Mod.

    Nobody needs to know I have OVR Advanced Settings open while playing VR games. This also actively hinders my ability to stream vr games, since the "game" I'm officially playing is whatever VR tool I'm using at that time.

    Totally agree with that, I have the same issue.
