Tbh - I had just a tiny bit of hope left that they would still work in AF even though they shut them off. I mean the files are the same aren't they?
Please wait until we can be sure that the links won't work anymore even with AF enabled. Thank you :)
Let my hope and prayers just continue a few days later ... my world aready went down yesterday and so there is only hope now and dreams ... *end of drama queen line*
Who knows with GOG. If it were me I would disable and strip out the old stuff that's no longer needed, but GOG aren't known for doing that so my method my still work, but it probably won't for new games but that depends on how exactly the links are generated and work.
It's unlikely I'm going to do anything anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it happening before we get a chance to see if it still works.
It's also a shame this got such a short deadline, otherwise maybe someone skilful could try and see if it'd be possible to keep it working the same way using the installers links on the game page.
But as MarkoH01 said, don't do anything before we're sure it doesn't work any more with the aid of AF (I also have quite a few updates/new games to download, and I'd rather do it with the GOG Downloader as long as it works).
It may be possible, but I don't know enough about the way the links work to know if it's possible to do something to keep it working...
If anyone can figure out a way to create a link that would utilise the same scheme to call up the gog downloader then let me know and I'll attempt to integrate it into the script.
I don't know if it would be possible to use the normal offline installer links to generate something like this:
That might still work, but as I said I don't really know enough about that side of web programming to know the ins and outs.
See above, nothing is likely to happen any time soon anyway.
