I recently got Sacred 2 Gold ed. when it was on sale a couple of days ago, and I've yet to be able to download it, normal installation resulted in errors so I tried using the downloader, but here's the thing, the downloader wont recognize me queuing a game to be downloaded, no matter how much I mash that little gray button, what am I doing wrong?
When I restart downloader it clears download list. Is this intentional? Isn't it supposed to watch downloaded games for patches and updates as demonstrated on it's download page?
Having some issues with the downloader on OS X. When the client starts, the game is showing with 0.0 KB downloaded and I'm not logged in. The UI isn't responsive, but when I tail ~/Library/Logs.GOG.log, I get a ton of lines like:

jsonParser error: Input was 'nil'

Same problem here, MBA Mid 2013, OSX 10.10

Edit:
I solved this problem by
rm ~/Library/GOG.com/GOG_Downloader.storedata

After doing this it will ask your acc/pass again.
And you'll get an empty download tray :)

Yep, that fixed it. I was worried that it'd try to restart the entire download, but it picked up right where it left off.

Edit... until the speed dropped to 0.0 KB/s. Quitting from the menu and restarting the application triggered the same behavior. I've been using the "Limit download speed to" feature (16 KB/s).

I downloaded and installed Downloader today, 3.6.0.0 for Windows.

I have problem with logging in - "The email or password is incorrect".
I'm sure both are correct, I even logged out and in on my webbrowser to be sure.

Problem with pass may be that it contains special characters or something (I'll change it in a minute and try to log in again), but it shouldn't do that, I like my passwords to be safe. .-.

Also, when I try to click 'Log in' again, it doesn't do anything, it's unclickable...



Edit: I was right, buggy character is '<'.
Btw. why can't I close Downloader if I'm not logged in? I had to kill the process with task manager at least 8 times when trying to log in before reporting this...
