Tracks game play time.
Gamest is a tool for keeping a record of time spent playing video games.
Use pip to install gamest:
pip install gamest
Gamest may be launched by calling
gamest from the command line. The executable
gamest.exe is located in python's
Scripts folder, so a shortcut may be
placed wherever is convenient.
Out of the box, gamest will track runtime of desired apps. To add an app to be tracked, start the app, then click 'Pick Game`, choose the app from the list, and click 'Pick Game' to select it. In most cases, no advanced settings will be required, so click 'Add Game' to finish adding the app to the database. In the future, the app will be automatically detected whenever it is running.
Gamest settings are stored in
%LOCALAPPDATA%\gamest\gamest.conf. The default
[options] # Set debug to True to enable logging of additional debug messages for # troubleshooting. # # debug = False # Only windows which are visible on the desktop will be shown in the # 'Pick Games' list. Set visible_only to False if you need to select # an app which doesn't present a visible window. # # visible_only = True
Plugins may require additional configuration. Included with gamest is a plugin
to send notification when game sessions begin or end. Its configuration is
default configuration is:
[PlaySessionNotificationPlugin] # Send notifications when an app is started. This doesn't do anything # unless a notification service plugin, such as the discord webhook # notifier, is installed. # # send_begin = True # Send notifications when an app is closed. This doesn't do anything # unless a notification service plugin, such as the discord webhook # notifier, is installed. # # send_end = True
