I'm getting "Cannot fetch game details" in the GOG downloader.

Venom: Hey Everyone,

sorry for the mixup, it seems that indeed The Witcher 1 went on sale a bit too early and without the downloads activated.

We've fixed that, and everyone who bought the game can now download it. We won't be stopping the sales now, so if you waited to buy the game you can do it now with no problems. The news post will show up a bit later, according to our schedule.

Again, sorry for the empty downloads, and thanks for your patience and understanding.
I'm curious, how many tickets did you get for this one?

Got the same, I'm downloading via web browser.

That's 'k. It gave me a chance to download all the goodies first.
The downloader is now working. I'm somehow very excited about this game even though I don't know much about it. I'm glad I bought Portal 2 last night which caused me to stay up this late.

If you'll add it again to the downloader it should work fine.

No apologies necessary. I was able to purchase my copy as well as download and ogle the artbook and listen to the soundtrack in the meantime, and since it went up early, it's all good.

Morandor: get over yourself, that is all.
No. If I pay for a product, I expect to get that product once payment is made (unless, of course, it's a pre-purchase, which this wasn't).

lukipela: you know that if a bank makes an error, you dont get to keep the money, right?
What does that have to do with this situation? They got my money. I got nothing. Where, exactly, is the parallel?


That being said, the DL now works. Thank you, Venom, for getting this sorted out.
Downloading now...3.6MB/s.
That downloader app is pretty slick.

lukipela: It was an error. WTF do i need to do to explain that to you?
I didn't ask you for a fucking explanation. You just decided to toss in some half-baked comment that doesn't even apply.

lukipela: You tried to game the system and didnt get what you wanted. Grow up and move on.
I didn't try to 'game' the system. I came on the site to check if the game was available, and there was an active link to purchase it. I bought the damned thing in good faith.

Yeah, that new downloader app is a killer, it allowed me to download the full game in less than 15 minutes !!! 0_0
