    I'm trying to make shortcuts on my objectdock for NFS:U and Call of duty but none of them seem to work . NFS:U starts but boots me to the desktop just a second later while call of duty wont start at all , it just gives me an error message that it couldn't load a file named "default.cfg" or something like that .

    Both games work fine from their normal shortcuts. Any ideas?

    How are you creating your shortcuts on ObjectDock? Are you dragging existing shortcuts onto the dock, or going through the dock configuration to create it? I've had problems before when dragging an existing shortcut onto the dock. If that's what you're doing, then you might try creating a new shortcut through the dock config, and then browsing directly to the executable that way.

    Not that I know of at this time. This feature is very much in demand, and hopefully we will see it come along in the future. OD is only in the RC1 stage, so techinically it isn't even a solid v1.0 yet.

    Since you can move the dock to the top, bottom, left or right of your screen, you can still use it along with the taskbar. That's what I do so I can still control my systemtray icons. :)

    I tried both ways but the result is the same . Other games like Max Payne 2 work fine ...
