My company bought several licensed copies of UnrealTournament
and when there's some time we startup the game and play a quick LAN game.
The thing is that we run the game on a business PCs and Laptop (That's why we play a 1999 game).
Most of the applications that make sense during the workday are loaded automatically - and I like keeping it that way.
One example is Babylon Translator which is activated by the Mouse Middle click.
What I propose is an small software that sits in the SysTray and keeps track of which applications are already loaded and which are just being launched.
Once an application on the watchlist is launched, there is a profile of applications that should shutdown immediately.
Once the watchlist application terminates, those same application that were shutdown would start again.
So if I have on my watchlist:
and the conflicting app list for it is, for example:
then when I fire-up UnrealTournament.exe - babylon, outlook, iexplorer and firefox would shut-down.
and those same apps will restart the moment UnrealTournament.exe would terminate. (a delayed approval box would make sense in case it's a failure on the part of the Game).
I found out an application
that comes close, but is run manually - I want something automatic. And the application's profile is automatic, I wish for manual / config file control.
Hope this is of some interest to at least one of you guys.
