Seems my language pack was corrupted as many of my options were not visible and showed the tag instead.
Language files have to be always updated after updating the component. You can do that by clicking on the correspondent flag at 'Help and Information' in the backend of the gallery.
Seems I need to disable that option for hits to work.
Yes, one of the main reasons for implementing the image output through the script was the one that counting the hits is possible trustworthy. So disabling the option 'Use real paths' is necessary for correct counting if the default detail view isn't used.
