    I had an issue last week where I had to format my computer and when I finally managed to install STO again, Ansel would not recognise STO. (I use steam by the way)

    I found an easy way around it though. If you launch STO from your desktop -the actual launcher icon- and rename it to the following: anselintegrationtestapp.exe, it actually works fine. Not sure how, but it bypasses the lock that prevents any non 'Ansel ready' game to utilize it.

    uhh Arc.... Never liked it and Steam has my favorite time tracking Big Grin

    -- I also remember that Ansel just one day stopped working for my WoW. I could never figure out why

    Not quite sure what you mean, are you talking about going into the STO folder and renaming that exe?

    The Interesting thing is Neverwinter is listed, but not Star Trek Online, at least not officially yet.

    Ahh no worries. No not the gameclient.exe. I have a desk top icon that brings up the launcher. Then from there, I start the game. I renamed that launcher and it somehow worked.

    The only thing that disappoints me about this are the following:
    - Auto disables itself when new driver update is available
    - Upon new driver update, you loose all your current filter settings.

    Might be the wrong place for this but y'all obviously no more about Nvidia stuff than I do.
    I'm running a gaming laptop that has integrated Intel graphics and also an Nvidia Gforce 920MX. For some odd reason, STO (and some others) refuse to use the Nvidia card and always revert to the integrated graphics. Way back when, when I first got this laptop and noticed this, I found a way to "force" STO and other games to use the 920 but I can no longer find the info on how I did it. Being a new(er) laptop, the integrated graphics actually work pretty well but when I can get it to use the 920, I can set everything to max and have awesome graphics with absolutely no performance issues.

    So, the question is, does anyone know how I can get my computer/game(s) to use my NVIDIA 920 instead of the integrated graphics ?

    - - - Updated - - -

    New post instead of an edit due to being a somewhat totally different question.

    Alt-Z does absolutely nothing after launching STO. While this could be due to STO reverting to using my integrated graphics, I wouldn't mind a more detailed explanation of how you all got it to work,Wallis said something ambiguous (to me) about renaming a launcher, the Jdcollins said they got it to work without having to do that but didn't say how. Could you both give a bit more details please ?

    Edited cause the forums went weird on me and added my new post to the old one ....twice

    This is off-topic, and you could've made a new topic for this.

    Here is the solution:
    - Right click on your desktop - go to Nvidia Control Panel
    - Then click on 'Manage 3D Settings'
    - Select the 'Program Settings' tab
    - Select your Star Trek Online Client as the program and set the Nvidia GPU instead of a shared or integrated GPU option.

    So, the question is, does anyone know how I can get my computer/game(s) to use my NVIDIA 920 instead of the integrated graphics ?

    I had previously touched on this for JDCollins;
    Your GeForce Experience client should also be updated to the latest version, certain older versions do not support it.

    You may also want to check-out this list to ensure your GPU can support Ansel.
    920M is not listed as supported for Ansel. I'm guessing it also doesn't support Shadowplay, else the GeForce ALT+Z would work. Download the Nvidia "Geforce Experience" client if you haven't already, that software houses the overlay and Nvidia GPU software side stuff.
