Is it possible to route all traffic through VPN except gaming data?

Btw, is it possible to have a VPN client on the router where all traffic passes through this VPN client except for gaming packets?

Depends...if you can uniquely identify 'gaming packets' content such as:
  • Destination Port
  • Source Port
  • Source IP/MAC
  • Destination IP(s)
then maybe.

Ok, sounds like a pain. And way over my head.
Pitty because i would be using VPN all the time if this was an easy setup. :p

If you disclose the Game/Server(s), the necessary info is probably available via a Googlesearch etc., and once identified can be plugged into wireguard_manager

It enables the usage of rules. So you can have a default to VPN with exception for one/some IP directly to WAN.
Maybe users using it already may give you more info

Another option is to use wgmExpo addon and send livin commands to shift your gaming computer to wan while you are playing and then shift back. This could be sent from Apple "Shortcuts" or Android "ssh button". Then shifting is as easy as pressing a Button on your home screen.

Edit: or you simply use the app to start/stop wg11, then you dont need wgmExpo addon but it is still convenient tool to filter out colours and such.

Ok, i will look into that.

A complete list would be really nice. Like a setting in the coming wireguard gui in the next firmware release.
Just to tick a box and all games for PC/PS4-5 etc gets excluded automaticly.
Maybe the list under the tab Open NAT could be used? It has game profiles.

Perhaps can also look into ipset.
@ZebMcKayhan guide covers it too.
