FAQ

Yes. When Engine updates to GG, all of your device configs and settings are carried to GG, just as they were when updating to a new version of Engine. Any settings will also be persisted on future versions of GG.

After opting-in to be our software beta tester you'll automatically be updated to early versions of new features and updates. We might also send you the odd survey to hear about your experience, so we can work with you to create the best possible experience.

If you have any issues or prefer the old version you always can go back after you've been updated.

Simply disable the early release opt-in in GG, under “Settings” -> “General”.

We appreciate any feedback or comments as it helps us immensely in making a great product for everyone to enjoy.

CloudSync has been removed from Engine for now since it did not live up to your needs.

We're reconsidering how to develop a better version and hope to bring it back in the near future with even more features!

If you don’t want to use an app such as Moments, you can turn it off in the settings. When turned off it will not effect your performance and will not run in the background.

The same goes for SteelSeries Engine. If you don’t have a SteelSeries device plugged in, the Engine application inside GG will not be running in the background.

To turn Moments off you can do either of the following:
1. Click the dropdown menu above the Moments gallery and turn off “Gameplay capture”
2. Go to Settings -> Capture and Sound -> Turn off “Allow Moments to capture while gaming”
