    Hey Guys,

    So I have created multiple profiles on synapse for different games and so far they have all been working fairly well. I tried creating one for Fortnite and while I set the link program pathway to the FortniteClient-Win64-Shipping.exe file it still won't load. I double checked several times and even went into the client properties while it was running and everything was okay. Does anybody know how to get it to respond with the link program function?

    Hi guys,

    I have the same problem, Razer Synapse does not detect in the right place the file, for it detects it here "Fortnite\FortniteGame\Binaries\Win64\FortniteClient-Win64-Shipping.exe" whereas in truth it is here "Fortnite\Fortnite\FortniteGame\Binaries\Win64\FortniteClient-Win64-Shipping.exe", and when I change the directory manually and that I save it does not nothing happens and the old one is still in place.

    Even if I try to add it manually as a new game, and well at the moment when I will click on validate it will not appear in the list.
    I think it's a current compatibility issue, so I'm going to bug it too.

    But so i have this problem for only one game : Fortnite, all other games profile works.

    Has anyone else found a solution for this? I too can't seem to get Synapse(2.21) to recognize the Fortnite.exe.

    I tested and got it to recognize the Epic Games Launcher but then as soon as Fortnite launches it switches back to default.

    Tried making the exe run as admin, tried launching the game through shortcut, tried adding it to Steam and launching it as non-steam game.

    Would be nice to get Synapse to switch profiles automatically for the game!

    I haven't had any problems with synapse 2 and Fortnite (at least not as of a few days ago), but I also didn't install the game to the default directory. Maybe try installing to another directory and see if that helps?

    I have it fixed sometime ago already. Thanks. And yes, I used that directory/exe too. :)
