X-Fi Mode Changer

Don't you hate it when you start Oblivion, load your savegame and the second you make the first step you notice that you forgot to change your X-Fi to Game Mode?

Spectra9 gives you the first public release of the X-Fi Mode Changer. What you will gain is the possibility to change modes using command line arguments, a systray menu or you can setup certain applications to run in given modes.

The X-Fi Mode Changer can be downloaded from Spectra9's homepage. Remember to read the included readme.txt file for installation information and requirements.
