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).
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!
