Today I’m a writing a very specific tutorial that may be used to fix the same issue on other games.
I really like Overwatch but one of the things that really irritates me is that when starting the
Overwatch.exe application directly, it requires you to input your credentials. Having a 16 digits long randomly generated password, I have done that once and abandonned the idea of doing it again.
Well, after some researchs and with the “Monitor to process” option added with update 126.96.36.199, I can finally start Overwatch via GameRoom without having to type my credentials and with playtime being properly recorded! Here is how to do it.
First, make sure you have checked “Advanced Settings” in the settings screen. Then, edit your Overwatch game, and set the 3 following fields as follow:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Blizzard App\Battle.net.exe.
E:\Games\Overwatch\Overwatch.exe. This means that GameRoom will monitor this executable file in order to compute your playtime.
--exec="launch Pro", with the quotes! This will make Battle.net launch Overwatch without asking you to login.
Now save your settings. Et voilà, you can enjoy starting Overwatch via GameRoom, with your playtime being recorded as usual!
