    Just thought I should let you all know that gaming mode needs to be worked on more. When gaming mode for full screen apps is check and you try to launch, like Tribes Ascend, City of Heroes or a few other games. Game mode does not recognize the connection and never add the app to the firewall rules and game connection is always blocked. You must add it by hand and then when the game updates it will not auto update the new exe and allow it to connect. You must then remove the app from firewall. Disable gaming mode, add the app back in and then turn on gaming mode again.

    System Info:
    Win 7 Pro x64 w/ SP1
    ESET Smart Security
    8GB DDR3
    3.7TB HDDs (seagate)
    2 Geforce 295

    Thanks for any info

    This is a correct behavior. Allowing all communication would leave the computer unprotected and exposed at risk.
