MG favorites... how can I change the list?

    Alright... So I'm back to the MG slots again after ranting about the new minimum WU deposit rule being too expensive for my taste and closing my account because of it. Even though I can run to the Indian casino down the road.... which I will do on occassion, there's just something about those online slots that gives you more of a rush. What I'm referring to is that online slots definitely offer the low-roller a chance to hit some very big wins in comparison to their land based counterparts. Getting back on topic now! As most know... the slots menu at any MG has a Favorites list comprised of about 13 games that you or I played after downloading the software. What I will sometimes do after a deposit is play a few spins on a slot that has potential for a huge win although it is very unlikely. A very stingy game or two that usually breaks most players but pays huge to a very few players now and then. Even though I don't consider these my favorites, I'm stuck with them in my favorites list because they're one of the first games I played after first signing up at the casino. How can I edit my favorites list??? Take some out and replace them with others?

    This question was asked & answered at CM quite recently.
    I had a quick search but couldn't find it. I think it's in this section somewhere if you'd like to do some deeper searching.
    However, I think the answer was given by VinylWeatherMan, who will probably post it here shortly... :thumbsup:

    Good Guess

    Lucky guess:D

    MG do not provide a way of editing the list. It is built somehow depending on how much a game is played. If you play a game enough, it will get promoted up the list.
    The list itself is a simple descending sort of the registry variable "priority" contained in each game subkey. The higher this value is, the higher the relative position in the favourites list a game will be.
    To remove a game from favourites, set the value to zero, to force a game to appear (and keep it there) set it to a high value. The list will still recalculate, but it will take a fair while for a game forced in by setting the value high to be dislodged.
    The favourites list itself displays in alphabetical order, although the tabs at the top can be used to reverse this, or sort on other categories as can any of the game lists.

    Thanks! Now how do you raise or lower the value of a game? I don't see options that allow me to do anything with the favorites.

    Edit: Except the thing in the right upper corner that alows you to reverse the order of the games already listed.

    You know Tim, im getting those same urge to come back ;). It's nearly 4 months for me. And this place makes it no better. The nearest casino to me is 6 1/2 hours away. But at the sametime I don't miss online gambling. I guess I would be just satified to just do it anyways. Just to get bored and make a big bet, lose and get mad and quit again! :)

    Tim, I think that VWM is saying you have to go into your registry (folder containing all the games) and manually change each game you want changed.

    ..and if you don't know how to do that:-

    Assuming you have Windows, click 'Start', 'Run' type in 'regedit' & 'OK'
    Then click on 'Edit' at the top, then 'Find'
    Type in part of the casino name & you should find the main folder.
    Open this & you'll see a list of all the games.
    Open the one you want, look for 'Priority', right-click & change the value.

    Disclaimer: I have never done this myself & will not be held liable if it goes wrong! :p
    If it does screw up, un-install & re-download the casino - then favorites should be empty.

    I've edited the registry loads of times, no problem.

    but be careful, if you don't know what you are doing and delete something vital, then it really is game over - ull have to reinstall windows.
    Its fine - but just be cautious! :sniper:

    Backup


    I have my Windows 98 PC run scanreg on boot, which always makes a registry backup each time a new day (from last session) is found. In the event of disaster, it is easy to restore using "comand_prompt>scanreg /restore

    XP has the restore point, and if in doubt set one before fiddling with the casino keys.
    If you restrict fiddling to the keys for Microgaming, the worst outcome is a screwy casino installation.

    Vista? Dunno, still haven't got my upgrade from DELL, but it looks like something for the filing cabinet till everybody else has debugged it for me:D

    The favourites list does not necessarily clear through uninstalling and reinstalling, as some installers leave the game keys in place, although other variants leave only the main casino key, which is why MG casinos can recall your account number even when they have been uninstalled for some time. A feature that also prevents the registration of a duplicate account through the Viper interface.

    Yet another approach for backing up is to only backup the Microgaming branch. You can do this within regedit. Access regedit by the method suggested by KK. Registry branches are like folders in Windows Explorer, and can be expanded by clicking the + sign next to them. Go into a branch by clicking on the folder icon instead of the + sign.

    (This works for Win2k and XP, all builds and Service Packs. It's been waaay too long since I've used Win98, but it will work as described there too, although you might need to search for the folder)

    Microgaming typically installs to the hive branch for HKEY_CURRENT_USER. If you don't see it there, do a search in regedit for microgaming.

    Step 1 - Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Step 2 - Expand Software
    Step 3 - Click on folder named Microgaming

    ** If this folder does not exist here, search for it before continuing!
    ** The only other reasonable place for it to exist would be:
    ** HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Microgaming

    Step 4 - With the Microgaming folder selected, go to File -> Export.
    Step 5 - In the Export dialogue, make sure Selected branch is checked.
    Step 6 - Choose a filename (Ex., micro_backup.reg) and click OK.

    Now you can edit the individual Casino and game priorities as outlined in the above posts. If anything goes horribly wrong, just find your backup .reg file. Right click it and select Merge from the context menu. Approve of the merge and blamo! the Microgaming branch and all of the original keys/settings are restored.

    Anytime you fuss with any setting(s) using regedit, you should backup the branch you are working in using this method. It's very simple, takes mere seconds to save, and mere seconds to restore.

    This would be quicker, however the novice should back up the whole registry in case they mistakenly delete the WRONG branch.

    Microgaming actually have TWO branches. As well as Microgaming, above it you should find MGS. MGS seems to hold defaults, and altering values here alone makes no difference. I cannot really see why the duplication is needed, as this only makes the registry bigger. An over large registry can slow down the performance of some PCs, due to the increased time taken to find the keys a programme needs. Messed up registries are one of the main causes of trouble with your PC, although redundant system files left over by old programmes are just as bad.

    Thanks everyone! I thought there would be a way to add or delete a game to favorites from within the MG software but that I just wasn't finding it.

    I forgot to mention - there is a much simpler way than messing around with your registry...
    Just go into, play and come out of your new favorites frequently and the software will automatically update them! :oops:
