Waow! We're back already!
Yes, this minor update released a few days after our major update still adds new features to Magic Borderless.

If you have missed our huge major update, be sure to check them out first:

We've added two new features that some games can definitely benefit from it, and further improved the game detection algorithm.

v0.99.3 Update Notes (includes v0.99.1 notes as well)

  • Steamworks can no longer be disabled from now on. Magic Borderless will still function offline and before launching Steam.

    • We regret to inform you that this is stripped due to the large number of concerned users initiating refunds and leaving us negative reviews after they got false positive virus alerts.
    • Our Steam user review rating has notably dropped. Despite our best attempts to keep developing Magic Borderless with new features and improvements for free while offering a very low price for the product, this one false positive incident has only damaged the reputation we've built. Please note that our sales don't even cover any of the developers working hours.
    • This is very disheartening for us as well, so please accept our sincere apology. We will continue to explore our options to bring back the toggle while we wait for Steamworks to support unlinking running executable after necessary SDK calls have been made.
    • This, however, allows to spend more time developing features that could fully utilize Steamworks, and more new features while not having to spend time working on a version running with Steamworks disabled.
  • Added delay time! you can now set delay before Magic is applied to games that freak out when they are applied too soon (Under Night In-Birth: Late[st]).

  • Improved borderless algorithm to support more games.

    • Improves the Magic effectiveness on GameMaker games (Undertale, Hero Siege, etc.). They should work at all times now.
    • Improves the reliability of Calming Agent.
  • Added new borderless mode. Originally, if you're not using custom sizing, it would expand to cover the original spaces used by the borders. It no longer does this by default, but we still gave you an option for it.

  • Further improved windowed game detection.

  • Updated Steamworks to the latest version.

  • Wizard window now has scrollbar for screen resolutions smaller than its intended size.

  • Removed launching on a relative path of MagicBorderless from the launcher to avoid false positives from outdated antiviruses.

  • Fixed Respecting Taskbar always maximizing the windows regardless of sizing settings.

  • Fixed games that used to work not getting Magic applied anymore without Force Override option on.

Regarding Virus Detection
On v0.99 we packaged some libraries into the executable hoping to reduce the file count, and created a separate launcher for Steamworks so people who wish to not have a permanent "playing Magic Borderless" on their status can still use the app through Steam.
However, this turned out to alert a lot of AVs for false positives. From this, we learned to delay our updates from now on to get our executable whitelisted by various AV vendors first before we push it to the public channel.
We have worked incredibly hard over the past week to ensure it no longer raises false positives.

If you are enjoying these updates, please spread the word and give us a good review. It can really help us keep working on Magic Borderless further!

Always with love,

Studio Christmas.
