Game Fire is a PC game booster, a software that tries to improve computer performance in order to achieve the best gaming experience. Game Fire will not do miracles, however by using Game Fire we guarantee that you will have the best possible gaming experience by dedicating all available resources to games and apps that matter and reducing resources consumed by unnecessary services and background processes.
Game Fire offers an impressive set of system tweaking options, for example Game Fire can suspend unnecessary Windows features, defrag system memory, optimize Windows tasks, end unnecessary applications, defrag game files and apply several system tweaks. The end result would be a great gaming experience with a single mouse click.
Unlike other game boosters, Game Fire provides a Live Optimization feature that can boost games performance in real-time allowing them to fully utilize available computer resources like CPU and memory and in the same time it deprioritize unnecessary and background processes.

It is nice to see an honest company making claims. However many features I do not like. Most important one is service background programs that it does not restart.

With that said I have been using jetboost (freeware) It has a pre loaded list of services to stop, even a customize option to add more. It works really well, and when you click the restore it starts service and background apps again.

I only play Match 3 games (and sometimes HOG games) so I probably don't need this. But I have a couple of games I like that don't run properly and I'm wondering if GameFire could help with this. The problem is that Clutter III and IV (free from myplaycity) expand so that I can't see all the menus, dialog boxes, etc. I suspect it's because of my monitor but don't know how to correct the situation. I've tried using a different resolution but that doesn't work.

Guess the developer isn't here to answer questions. Does anyone know if GameFire will solve my problem? I'm guessing the answer is no, from reading the information about it.

catlover,

I don't think it will. It does sound like a resolution problem. Have you tried toggling Full Screen on the games that don't seem to fit?

Reply   |   Comment by Breagha  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

catlover, It's not the game or your computer. It's the code that myplaycity adds to their games they peddle that makes some of them not fit the screen. I run a very high end home built computer with the new GeForce 1070 video card, and their games do that on it also. This program can't help that.

I actually go out of my way to avoid their games, but then I don't like any site that makes me visit their website every time I close out one of their programs (or delete them) and that try to add unwanted programs or browser addons as I'm installing the one I did request.

There are tons of other sites online where you can get the same casual games you play for a very low price or if you can't afford that, many that offer games that are a few years old for free without the hassles myplaycity makes you suffer with. (Many of the games on myplaycity ARE old, if you aren't aware of it. I've had the majority of them for3 to 10 years in my vast inventory of games.)

Breagha, thanks for the reply. I forgot to state that I did try full screen--same problem.

Reply   |   Comment by catlover  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

LComeno, I got Clutter I (and II, I think) here at GGOTD and liked them so much that I tried Clutter III and IV from My Play City, since I didn't find them anywhere else. But you're right. I just looked and those versions ARE on other sites. But I refuse to buy from Big Fish especially or Gamehouse because if my computer crashes or I buy a new one and need to re-install, they only allow a limited number of installations. And I hate sites that require you to install their software just to play their games.

I just found out there's a Clutter V at other sites but I've never been able to tell in 30-60 minutes whether a game is worth spending $10 on. I'm 76 & my money is limited. I don't mind paying for a game occasionally, especially the Clutter games, but I don't want to lose them or have to pay again if I have to re-install them more than the "allowed" times.

BTW I don't care if a game is old. It turns out the Clutter games are old, too, but they're my favorite all-time games--better than any Match 3 I've found. The Clutter I and II games don't have the same problem the later versions have, so I don't see how it can be a MPC problem. Isn't it more likely the developer is the one who changed them?

This is for people whose "profession" is to play video games? Sounds like might cushy job. Are they now hiring? Would certainly be interested

Reply   |   Comment by frank  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-9)

It can be, but unless you excel at gaming, you need not apply. These days, if you are good at FPS (see Playerunknown's, CSGO, or Overwatch) or RTS (SC2, LOL, or DOTA) then you have a chance to make some serious money in gaming. Otherwise you can make videos and get a following on Youtube. Another option is to go into the farming and leveling business, where you farm items in MMOs and sell them or level for other people either in rank or level.

I personally have done the game currency/leveling/rank business - very tight competition. I also own a cheat/guide site (mmoexploiters), for gamers.

Installed without a hitch on Windows 8.1 Pro, Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780.

Only imports from Steam (rather poorly. Found two games, and both lead back to Steam.exe rather than their own executables. On the other hand, seeing as the short-cut in Game Fire only seems to end processes and do little else, I suppose it doesn't matter where the short-cut points to). No support for any other launchers. Would have been nice to see it extend to at least GOG Galaxy, but oh well. It found two out of five games installed outside a launcher, and one plugin for Gimp it thought to be a Need for Speed expansion xD

Adding games manually is really easy and straight forward, however, so as far as complaints go, this is a very minor one.

I was curious about this, because it seemed practical to me to be able to turn off processes and services while I play, and then have them turned back on when I stop playing.

Unfortunately, Game Fire doesn't suspend the processes, it ends them. That means, I might as well just use Windows Task Manager for the process management, and then log out and back in when I'm done playing (have to log out and back in when using Game Fire anyroad). In all fairness, though, Game Fire does say it closes them. I got the idea it only suspended them by reading the blurp here on the site.

The Game Mode seems like a potentially great feature, and it does suspend some rather annoying processes (from a gaming point of view. Hate being pulled out of my game for Windows Update nagging :P ), but it seems to mostly turn off a few services and then rely on you to check off processes you want to end everytime you turn on Game Mode.

It has hardware monitoring, which seems like a nifty feature to me (I know at least Speccy has that available, and doubtlessly many other programs). It'll warn you when your hardware overheats, and lets you set your own values for when to receive a warning (not available in Speccy), which I quite like.

All other things aside, this GiveAway very feature rich, and I haven't had time to look through everything the program has to offer. Some of it is straight forward, some of it requires you to know your way around the middleground of Windows. Best advice is to not end processes you don't know.

I didn't vote on this one. It has things I like, and things I dislike, so it's pretty much a question of temperatment, I guess. My machine is large enough to smoothly run what I want to play already, so I am uncertain how to see if it actually helps, or if it is largely based on techno-superstition - as many of these process-handling programs are.

Reply   |   Comment by Breagha  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Breagha,

Thanks for the informative post. Are you sure that it cannot suspend processes? I'm only asking because they use the term "suspend" in their marketing copy above.

FYI, some time back I wrote a batch script that I usually run pre-gaming (when I play "serious" games; for others that aren't too taxing on my system I don't bother). It suspends a number of non-critical processes, kills a few others, and shuts off a few of the more system-intensive processes. When I'm done, a second script reverses all the changes. So, although I haven't tried it myself yet, I'd be all over today's giveaway if it can obviate the need for my scripts (even though they are very useful, as my system changes over time I have to edit them accordingly, which is time consuming).

It sounds like a powerful program, but I guess I won't know how flexible it is until I try it...

Robert Garofalo,

I may have overlooked something - the program has a lot of settings - but when I ran games through it, it gave me a list of running processes and asked which to turn off.

When I finished playing, they stayed turned off.

Breagha, I think you should turn off Game Mode manually through the software itself to have it restore closed processes

kevin,

That seems like a slightly antiquated point of view.

There are many, many programs that won't run on Linux. And there are many, many programs that won't run on Linux without a bit of work. And then there are many, many programs that run splendidly on Linux.

More and more developers make Linux versions these days, so you won't even need to worry about Wine, including a fair few hardware manufacturers.

Windows is still the most compatible, granted, but they are no longer the sole option.

DrBob, it clearly states it doesn't do miracles. If your computer doesn't have the requirements to run a game in the first place, it won't help. Otherwise, it will help divert most or all of your system resources to the games you play for a better experience, if possible.

StrayCat,
Yes, XP Service Optimizer does seem well-regarded and I would have liked to try it, but as you say, it is hard to find now. Softpedia and AfterDawn are amongst those hosting it, but their versions seem to need to download more files which are no longer available. Other sites just redirect to Smart PC Utilities, who now only offer PC Service Optimizer for Vista and above.

HavocRock,

I'm guessing you meant 'not' instead of 'now'. Gave you an upvote, and I completely agree. It's nice to see a developer not promising you a 'brand new computer when you try out this fantastic program!' ;P

Reply   |   Comment by Breagha  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

HavocRock, I test a lot of new games for Developers, mostly Indies. I have found that many of them are like what we've seen here, honest about what their program can and can not do. After too many years of being ripped off, lied to and cheated by the big name Devs, today we are seeing a lot of gamers turning into Indie Devs who are doing things the right way for us gamers.

I'm guessing the majority of my games (I have 1,000 I'm guessing) come from Indie Devs. I'm not quite your average gamer though, I'm a 60 yr old grandma of 6 (and counting), who has been building my own computers for the past 20 yrs. :)

can this make a game that only uses a single CPU core utilise ALL the available CPU cores on a system fully? If not then what's the point in crippling windows by various intrusive tweaks that do not do anything other than starve peter to pay paul and paul gives back the excess resources anyway if it is coded correctly... and defrag system memory... that snake oil has been disproven many times in NT based windows systems that just about everyone uses nowadays!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

TK,

I'd be interested in how it works with the game optimization already present in 10 -- does it take it's place, require turning off 10's optimization, work cooperatively etc.? I'd think the number one question from someone running 10 would be: "What's wrong with what I've already got? How is this better?"

"can this make a game that only uses a single CPU core utilise ALL the available CPU cores on a system fully?"

If it could, I imagine the AMD folks would be All Over It. ;)
After spending years developing their new chips however, AMD finds themselves in the same [all too] familiar spot -- their new Ryzen CPUs do pretty darn well until you fire up a game that only uses one, maybe 2 cores... that's where they just can't seem to catch up to Intel. From what I've seen, their official response is to push game developers harder to optimize their code for Ryzen CPUs, i.e. to use multiple cores. If ANY software could do that it would be a much easier road to travel, & considering AMD developed their own game optimization software, yet couldn't master this trick, I'd guess it's near impossible.

"If not then what's the point in crippling windows by various intrusive tweaks that do not do anything other than starve peter to pay paul and paul gives back the excess resources..."

We've got 4 low powered Windows 10 devices -- a couple of tablets with Atom CPUs, a miniPC with a Celeron SOC, & a 2-in-1 with a mobile i3... the Celeron & Atoms are quad core, while the i3 is dual. 10 has all sorts of stuff going on in the background, and Process Lasso -- which I believe works *somewhat* similar to Game Fire -- does help slightly on the Atoms, seems to have no effect on the Celeron, & actually hurts performance quite a bit on the i3.

That *might* suggest that Game Fire *might* have some benefit on some -- not all -- systems or devices. My son runs an i5 & is a more serious gamer, but his bottleneck is the GPU, so it'd likely have a negligible effect, while my wife's i7 PC is hardly stressed playing the casual games she likes, so again I can't see it making a difference.
