    Is there any way to start the game with NVIDIA or AMD graphics card (not integrated) if it is possible?
    I want to provide the user an easy interface to do the selection.

    That is so important for me. I could not find any way for at least 2 years.

    Not from the perspective of your game, no.

    GM games will just launch on whatever is the primary adaptor.

    That will be down to the OS, or drivers.

    It's down to the user to mark that application as something to run on the dedicated GPU using the right software (like NVidias control panel), or to the driver developers to add the game to their list of games to run on the high performance card.


    To be honest though, a 2D game is expected to run on integrated graohgra and if you are getting performance issues you should consider optimizing your game.
