Description

Currently, to use gamemode users have to manually launch yuzu with gamemoderun yuzu or edit their desktop entries to have it automatically run. Having an integrated toggle would allow users to more easily enable the feature and would allow gamemode to be disabled when a game isn't currently running.

Currently Cemu has integrated Feral GameMode in its emulator, and I notice a certain performance improvement, maybe not much but it is noticeable. I hope this will be implemented.

Looks like the tool in question is https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode.

Dolphin currently has logic to run xdg-screensaver to enable/disable screensavers, but I'm not sure if the same logic can be repurposed here; it looks like it only has gamemoderun <program> to start and wrap execution, and not separate start/stop commands. I'm pretty sure we would want to use start/stop commands since it doesn't need to be in gamemode when you're on the game list and not actively running a game.

This tracker is for Dolphin, not yuzu. Though I'm guessing you just submitted similar requests to a bunch of projects, and it applies equally to all of them.

I noticed it once I posted it, but when I put modify, it doesn't really appear to me to modify.

The text should really say: "Currently, to use gamemode users have to manually launch Dolphin with gamemoderun Dolphin or edit their desktop entries to have it automatically run. Having an integrated toggle would allow users to more easily enable the feature and would allow gamemode to be disabled when a game isn't currently running."
