Unfortunately im gonna say that is a game specific issue. The Witcher 3 is DRM free, even when purchased directly from GOG, which means it can be launched at any time without using the GOG client. Which is what i feel is happening here, the game is being launched via its shortcut or .exe, and GOG Galaxy has no idea about it. In fact im guessing you will run into the same issue with any GOG games as well, if its not launched from there client, then its not tracked.

Thank you neil9000!

You are wrong though. I've found a way.

To make GOG Galaxy track time even when the game is launched through Launchbox you put this in the shortcut in Launchbox (in this example I'm running Witcher 3):

Application Path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\GalaxyClient.exe

Application Command-Line Parameters:

/command=runGame /gameId=1495134320 /path="G:\Games\GoG\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt GOTY\bin\x64\witcher3.exe"

Also make sure to put this in under Additional Apps:

C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\GalaxyClient.exe

And set it to automatically run before main application.

If I don't set this GOG Galaxy crashes for some reason.

lol, well not wrong exactly. As i said as you were just launching the game.exe so GOG Galaxy wasn't aware the game had been run. What you are doing there is launching the GOG Galaxy client and having that then launch the game, so yes of course that will then track just fine as its launched through the GOG Galaxy client. That was my original point as the client wasn't launching the game, game time wasn't tracked.

Glad you figured out a solution though.
