Dragon Gaming Center is a nifty tool to set a bunch of settings that are available on the G series MSI Notebooks. The idea with this article is to break down the settings and explain them.

The first thing that meets you when you launch the Dragon Gaming Center is the System Monitor screen:

 
It does pretty much what the name says – it gives you system parameters in real-time, such CPU load, RAM use, battery status, etc. You can also switch SHIFT profiles and monitor your temperatures and network usage.


Screen 2 is the Utility screen – from here, you can launch applications, with the ones you see in the screenshot are preset. In addition to these, you can add your own applications.



Instant Play comes with four tabs – the first one is ”Instant Play”. Here you can assign the P1 key shortcut to launch a specific application or game.


Tab 2 is Display & Audio, where you can adjust speaker volume and microphone levels, as well as display brightness and gamma.


Tab 3 is Mouse – you can set pointer speed, double-click speed and scrolling properties.


The last Instant Play tab is Resource Release where you can choose which applications will be automatically closed when you launch your preset game with the P1 key combo.


Lastly, Device Setting comes with the possibility to turn on/off the Windows key on the keyboard, and enabling/disabling the high performance profile. Finally, you can once more choose SHIFT modes.

Hello, I wonder why in my "Gaming center" I got "Hybrid Power" instead "Device Setting". I can't use tne Nvidia 870M, just the Intel 4600HD. Anybody can help me to get the configuration right? I Have a GT70 2PC Dominator.

thanks for your time,
Rick

Only the newer version of Dragon Gaming Center has the "Device Setting" tab. It's a new feature with the 9xx series graphics models' Dragon Gaming Center.
The "Hybrid Power" tab shows on certain models which support hybrid power on previous Dragon Gaming Center.

The new version of Dragon Gaming Center has the device setting tab, but for the shift mode, it's only available on NVIDIA GTX 900M-series.

I just purchased a new GT73VR.  Can't find Dragon Gaming Center on my computer anywhere.  How do I download this?  This is a big selling point for MSI gaming laptops.  To simply not have the software installed on a brand new laptop seems odd...

I wonder, is there a way to disable the automatic windows key disable? Is there a shortcut for it or something?

MSI should have a disclaimer as Dragon Center and many of their products that use SCM as the backdrop engine have a timebomb where at any moment the s/w could Kernel.dll error. Happened to me twice just Dragon Center alone lest I mention Dragon Gaming Center. :undecided: When you install those s/w you are almost certainly working off "borrowed time" as if they self-destruct for no reason at all. Count your blessing if it hasn't happened to you (yet!)
