plagren: Judging by this
they're OK with it.
First time seen that list. Sickening how often devs/publishers want to farm info' with no good reason.
Anyhoe, Grim Dawn also possibly wants adding, as when you first start (or re-install) it asks to send data to the makers too.
Was playing Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky, single player game, with Wireshark running in the background. Noticed things were being sent to Europe with "GalaxyService" as message. Galaxy not installed on computer.
Emailed XSeed about it. Said GOG needs it for achievements (latest update) and can't do anything about it. XSeed says it doesn't do telemetry stuff and it's GOG. Emailed GOG about it. Reply back to just set firewall. Problem is, wouldn't have known about it unless I had Wireshark running that day. What happens on next update if they change the IP address?
Looking for better clarification and transparency on which games does this and will GOG require future games? Maybe at the very least, a FAQ updated with IP address to block. It would be nice though if GOG went further than the bare minimum.
Don't want others to know when I'm playing a game. Just want to relax without worry.
I've had something dodgy happen too in the past.
A game I was playing popped up achievements (fucking huge ones at that...) right in front of the game.
Problem was, I didn't even have galaxy installed :/
