just a short information:
1) To my knowledge:
A proper patchhistory was not and is still not published by Larian - so ... maybe you should not rant about GOG
I use Galaxy.
As as far as I remember the latest version v184.108.40.2064 "patch" war a FULL installation since the download was about 13GB.
It seems there is no small patch!
I dont like Game-Manager as well, but you can chose not to integrate Galaxy
I disabled ALL integration, i use Galaxy only to acces this Forum and to install patches/pames
I start DOS2 directly ... without galaxy...
So i dont really understand all the fuss :-)
GOG had all the patches but did decide to remove them, so it's their fault and you can't put the blame on Larian only. I got all the patches and their version numbers are easily recognizable.
Edit - cutting for reply (list contents):
Size: 1.02 GB in total
Patch 220.127.116.114 is only 0.9 GB and not 13 GB like you are writing. So if you downloaded 13 GB you were not only downloading the patch. This fact can be easily seen if you look into the game's download section.
Question is, what you actually downloaded as the game itself is a 21+ GB download.
And I still don't want to install Galaxy.

same here. Not all of the world is on a super fast connection. You figure 3-4 full re-downloads for 25-28 GB? Why? So I am forced to use their client? Honestly the ability to never have to use the client is the reason why I buy here.
Edit: (21.2 GB) sorry for over estimate of original download.
