I am not sure but i dont think the optimisation is taking place on games on my system for example i run farcry5 in full screen mode but i do not get a notification to say it is being optimised or indeed does it list it within the list of optimised games. so i thought i would try another this time cod WWII this has optimised? is there an issue with farcry5 or all uplay games?

Hello and welcome to our forum!

The game booster is a smart piece of technology. It will not optimize anything, if your computer doesn't need it.

For World of Warcraft for example, because the engine was built a long time ago, even with improvements, it will trigger the Game Booster. However, FarCry 5 is a new engine and it's optimized to work on new computers, so it's not actually using that many resources, hence not triggering the Game Booster.

Check your computer CPU, GPU, memory and disk usage in WoW and FarCry and compare.
