Then you might need to do this for a different executable. Some programs, especially games, use a launcher. You want to use the actual game executable instead. You should be able to find it running 'ps -ef' and looking for the actual game process name.

This is all irrelevant.

He doesn't background any of the processes. Which shell they run doesn't matter. 'xrandr' changes X-display settings which have nothing to do with shell "setup".

The only possible reason why it works when manually run and doesn't work from the script - is timing. 5 seconds might not be enough.
