Hi, everyone!

The Galaxy team is hard at work to bring you the Client application that will let you manage your games library more conveniently. We’d love for the initial release experience to be as smooth and streamlined as possible for everyone, but releasing an app of this scope is no easy feat.

But before we jump in and hand out the alpha Client, we’d like to set some ground rules.

1) The key word here is ‘alpha’, which means that this is not the final app and not all functionalities are present. The purpose of this test is to evaluate the core tech in the Client on a wider set of computer configurations than what we can locally test on, so only core features are included. Below I will post a detailed list of what is present and what we plan to add in future releases.

2) Alpha also means that you can encounter some unexpected issues. If you have a metered connection (a bandwidth cap or payments per bandwidth used) or you’re currently playing and can’t afford a loss of game time, this might not be for you. In other words, if you want to avoid potential problems with the alpha Client, simply wait for the final release.

3) Please, please, please refrain from posting screenshots, reviews or first impressions, both on our forums or elsewhere, as this is not the final product and many changes will still be made.

If you’ve read all of the above proceed to the signup page:

We will be sending out invitations in batches (along with some more info on how to install the client and report bugs), so not everyone will receive one right away.

1. For GOG games installed using installers from the last few months (so called Galaxy-compatible installers)
Click the "+" button on top of the sidebar and select "scan and import folders" - it will find all compatible games within that folder and add them to the Client.

2. For remaining GOG game INSTALLATIONS
Find the game in the Library, then click the More button and select "Manage" -> "Import folder" and point the folder selector into the folder where that game is installed.

Where do we leave feedback?

Anyway, just for reference: please, add an option to NOT download REDIST files when you verify or download a game!
Some thing that are annoying me:

1 - Navigation buttons aren't usable in the Library, only site. And you can't go back to the Library from the Store, you have to click in the library and navigate there until you find the place you are previously...

2 - Gog mix are nowhere to find. Would be great if the Gog mix was linked to the player dropdown menu below Forum Replies.
1. How I set the game path to /Games/ and not to /Applications/ on my Mac?
2. Are all already installed GOG games recognized or I have to reinstall all my GOG games?
I hope this is a good place to give feedback about the Beta Version.

Probably you are aware of everything I will write to you know, but maybe there are things that you forgot :D

-You can´t set the Language for games (like you can on, only English is avaible
-I set the standard folder at the INSTALATION of GoGGalaxy to my HDD D:/ , the standard for games were still C:/
It would be cooler to change it "Installationfolder" = "Gamefolder" as a standard. C:/ Is my SSD, and I wouldn´t like to have 200 GB Games there anway, so I would have to move all these foldiers /Reinstall all games after I noticed that they are saved somewhere else :p

BTW one general question to you gog guys. I noticed that there was a huge translation for gog for the GERMAN language. Are they any more translations planned, for example a polish Translation? Aren´t there enough visitors?
MacArthur: I've experienced some serious loss of download speed when downloading some games via the download extras. It's not doing that with all games, just some of them : broken age, aarklash legacy,... I need to test the rest of my library.

I will report it by a mantis ticket later, but I would just like to know if someone else has an inconsistent connection and some loss, and even cut, of download speed when they download the standalone version of certain games by Galaxy ?

EDIT : RandomuserUser833 seems to have something like this, someone else ?
I have to add that I have an excellent connection...
randomuser.833: I don't think that it has anything to do with the quality of the internet connection.
I usually got some packed loss because of old cables, but thats all.

It seems that galaxy is opening to many connections when downloading offline installer.
This might kill an internet connection. I'm not shure if it has to do with security software that is monitoring the connection or with whatever else.

I use Eset Nod32 and the Comodo Firewall.
You might be on to something here. I use Eset Nod 32 too...

Trying on another computer, from another place right now...
Please, add an easy way to add friends.
And please add an auto decline for friend requests to the website for people not using galaxy. At least until the website offers a possibility to handle the friend list besides inviting people. The ghost notifications are a tad annoying.
As the alpha stage is over, and we're moving to the beta stage, we will also have a new topic:

Thank you everyone for your help, it's been a great aid for us!
