Hi,
 
I recently bought a HP Pavilion 15-au102tx laptop. Issue at hand is when I run the game - Knight Online, the NVIDIA GPU is inactive as shown by the tray icon; leaving only the Intel GPU running. However, when I run other games like Dota 2, the NVIDIA GPU is utilized. So, the question is how do I make Knight Online utilize NVIDIA GPU instead of the Intel GPU?
 
My HP Pavilion 15-au103TX specifications:
Windows 10 64-bit
Intel Core i5-7200 @ 2.50 GHz
4096 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 620
NVIDIA GeForce 940MX
 
What I have tried:
Updating BIOS
Updating both Intel and NVIDIA drivers

I don't know if your PC pertains to this HP support page but see if you can use the program select feature of the Nvidia Control Panel if you have it.

Additional information - apparently when I run the official Knight Online from Steam, the NVIDIA GPU is utilized. However, due to the fact I am currently playing the private server of the game (Zone MYKO), it doesn't utilize the NVIDIA GPU. Hence, it got me thinking that perhaps a proper installation of the game can solve this as Zone MYKO uses WinRAR to extract the game, no installer or anything.
