I just installed a game which requires a 'release date check', the problem is I access the internet via a proxy and the 'release date check' always fails. Is there any way to make a specific program connect to the internet via proxy? The Proxy add is localhost and port is 6050.

yes, there are tools like Proxifier and WideCap which tunnel all your traffic through a http or socks proxy

The only way you could hack this is if the program uses a DNS host for the remote host and not an IP address (which is a good bet). You'd need to install a name server that resolved the host in question (or use a hosts file) and have the substitute host do the proxy.
