Sorry if this has been answered before, but is there a way to have the extras download to the same dir as the installers? I have downloaded a large collection with the official gog downloader and didnt want to have to put all the extras into seperate dirs inside each game dir. Again sorry if it has already been asked.

Also, i am able to use your program just fine but would like to know more about what each of the switches does. Do you have a guide or something similar?
lgogdownloader is currently broken in Arch Linux since it needs libboost 1.54 where Arch has 1.55.

Not at the moment but perhaps I should write one

Recompiling seems to fix this

You're right, I should have thought of that. It's working now.
Is it possible to have the --check-orphans parameter extended to list really *all* files in the games directory which do not belong to the game or - better - a custom set of extensions?

Example:
$ lgogdownloader --game ultima123 --check-orphans all

Currently this switch does check for a fixed set of extensions which cover possible downloads from GOG.com, but it would be kinda neat to obtain a list of all files which do not belong to the current GOG.COM game release in the game directory

wget https://sites.google.com/site/gogdownloader/check_orphans_regex.diff
git apply check_orphans_regex.diff
make release

This patch changes --check-orphans so that it sets regular expression filter (Perl syntax) for files to check. If no expression is given then the regex defaults to '.*\.(zip|exe|bin|dmg|old)$'

Use "--check-orphans .*" to check all files
Im having an issue where its telling me that there are too many files open with librhash..

Sorry if this is not the right place to post. Where do i post issues if i am mistaken?


edit :
I have a large gog collection, 460+ games so this program is a godsend when it comes to updating.

You can report issues here: https://github.com/Sude-/lgogdownloader/issues?state=open
And leave a note in this thread for others to follow.
Thank you Shmerl.

I have posted the issue here.
Git version now uses $XDG_CONFIG_HOME and $XDG_CACHE_HOME directories to store files

Configuration files and cookies are now stored in "$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/lgogdownloader"
if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not set it will use "$HOME/.config/lgogdownloader"

XML files are now stored in "$XDG_CACHE_HOME/lgogdownloader/xml"
if $XDG_CACHE_HOME is not set it will use "$HOME/.cache/lgogdownloader/xml"
Doesn't compile on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS because the compiler's too old for one of the C++x11 tricks used.

Works only with --timeout 20 for me. Other than that it's fine.

LGOGDownloader 2.11
- Support XDG Base Directory Specification
* Configuration files and cookies are now stored in "$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/lgogdownloader" ("$HOME/.config/lgogdownloader" if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not set)
* XML files are now stored in "$XDG_CACHE_HOME/lgogdownloader/xml" ("$HOME/.cache/lgogdownloader/xml" if $XDG_CACHE_HOME is not set)
- Fixed automatic xml creation in Downloader::repairFile
- Changed --check-orphans to set regular expression filter for orphan check. If no argument is given then the regex defaults to '.*\.(zip|exe|bin|dmg|old)$'
- Removed 32-bit/64-bit environment check because it was not used for anything
