Play games in borderless windows with Compiz

I like to play games and luckily there are a lot of games for Linux now; I have 51 games in Steam which run on Linux. But not all of these games do a good job when running at fullscreen (diustorted resolutions, hidden cursors, ect). So I like to run games in a borderless window and not all of these games offer that.

This is a simple fix. Open cssm, navigate to Effects > Window Decoration, and change the Decoration windows property to (any) & !(class=Awesomenauts.bin.x86). In this case, the game I want in a borderless window is Awesomenauts (really great game).
