Installing DVDGame

  1. Close EEGer if it is open.

  2. Download DVDGame from the EEGer Downloads Page.
    Note: The version number may differ from the screenshot below. The latest version will always be displayed in the location underlined below.

  3. Once the download is finished, run the DVDGame installer. The default installation settings are okay and do not need to be adjusted. Click Next, Install, OK, and Finish when prompted.

At this stage, DVDGame should be installed on the computer. If this is a new purchase, the latest enabling keyfile will need to be installed. This keyfile will 'unlock' the game and allow it to be used for live sessions.

Installing VLC Player

Next, a media player that is compatible with DVDGame must be installed.

  1. Download VLC version 2.0.8 from the EEGer Downloads Page.
  2. Run the VLC installer and complete it using the default installation settings. At the end of the installer, a prompt will allow VLC to be opened.
  3. After VLC opens, a smaller window will appear to specify important configuration settings.
  4. Uncheck the box for autochecking for updates and uncheck downloading media data.

Next, disable AutoPlay from the Windows Settings. This will prevent Windows from interfering with DVDGame. The following instructions apply to Windows 10:

  1. Click the Windows Start button on the bottom taskbar.
  2. Type AutoPlay in the search bar.
  3. AutoPlay Settings should appear - click this.
  4. In the menu that follows, turn off the option that says Use AutoPlay for all media and devices.

If a particular media player or version does not work, it is recommended to fully uninstall the media player and attempt to download and install an alternative version or media player. All compatible media players are available on the EEGer Downloads Page.

Game Initialization Tool

The Game Initialization Tool must be ran to allow EEGer to recognize the new game:

  1. Open EEGer and navigate to Tools>Game Initialization Tool from the top toolbar of EEGer's main screen.

  2. After a moment, a list of installed games should appear. Click Done-Save Configuration at the bottom right of the menu.

  3. Click SAVE all games at the bottom of the next menu and return to EEGer's main screen.

  4. DVDGame should now be selectable when beginning a live or replay session. Note that EEGer must be set to Dual Monitor mode for it to appear in the list of games. If the game is appearing with a pink background, it is unlicensed and an enabling keyfile is needed to use the game with live sessions.
