Wurzelkraft: The extras are a separate download unless it is added DLC or something like that. So they are not included in the main installer. If the installer wasn't changed and you use the GOG downloader it will check the GOG download folder for the file and does an integrity check before downloading anything. No change? No download!
Yes, I know very well the extras aren't included in the main installer. My point was that if I don't know whether the update was to the installer or the extras, I have to download both to be sure. Only if the site tells me which was updated can I avoid unnecessarily downloading the files which haven't been changed. I download my games using one computer, but to save space on my machine, I don't archive all my purchased games there. That means the downloader won't be able to check the existing file to see if it needs to be updated, as they're stored off the network. It really shouldn't be too hard to mark what items were updated so that customers can decide which files to download (or in the case of changes to extras they're not interested in - even IF they should bother downloading at all).

That's true. Update flags are not working very good here. Well that's actually the reason why this thread has so many pages. x)

mrkgnao: NOTE! CHANGED title: New Beginning - Final Cut, A ***TO*** New Beginning: Final Cut, A

DyNaer: Erm, this one isn't right ;

The game card title is : A New Beginning: Final Cut
GOG is consistently inconsistent in its treatment of inital "A" and "The" in game titles. In MaGog, I have made the conscious decision to normalise all the game titles so that these always come at the end. What you see above is the output from MaGog's logs, which uses MaGog's convention.
