I'd guess they just increased the number of shelves to load initially.
Nope, it loads as before, though automatically. Found that out while downloading Cryostasis, which did eat almost all my bandwidth, so I could see the scrollbar moving. Won't complain though, I also prefer it this way.
Yeah, that's what I meant, they just increased the number of shelves to load the first time. None are loaded with the page, just that as soon as you load he page, the script realises "hey, the page is scrolled to the bottom, better load some shelves", this "some" was set to quite low before (4? 5?) in order to decrease the initial loading time, while now it's a bit higher (50? 100?).
Come on, this is the internet. There must be somebody
who doesn't like the new system ....
First DRM removal, now a relatively content community, GOG is seriously trying to divide the internet by zero.
