I have GeForce 4 Ti 4200 vid card and I use different color profiles for different games. (IE: increased gamma from 1.0 to 1.64 for AAO). Is there a way that I can setup a shortcut key command to enable that saved display profile? It is a real pain to have to goto control panel>Display>Ti4200 tab>settings>advanced>and then select the profile and hit "OK" just to get setup to play my game.

Don't have exactly what you want but its a start. Easiest way would probably be to find the registry entry controlling this setting and making a simple switch script...

Code:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,3

Well maybe this will help

Number 3 is the one I change to a color profile that I created for different games. What I would like to be able to do is somehow switch from the default setting to the saved profile and back without having to go through all that you see just to do it.

I don't have Detonator drivers installed nor can I use them for my ATI card or else I would have thrown together a script. I can't track it down if I don't have it installed, but based on findings with my own drivers you should have a bunch to work with. I tracked down my colour profile settings using Catalyst drivers, based on this info it should be easy enough to find it for the Detonators. It’s going to look a bit cryptic but it’s easy enough to figure out, just tryout the monitoring tools below to do the same with your drivers. I watch file access when entering the menu I want, also watch the registry when the profile is set.

Download SysInternals Monitoring Programs so you can watch file access and the registry in realtime.
