At this moment gog galaxy won't connect to gog.
Just an idea, how about to make fiend window integrated into gog galaxy main windows? Cause right now it opens new window...
Can there be an option to show download speed in KB/s (when it is lower than 1MB/s)?
It would be nice.

EDIT:

Why would you want a fiend window? :p
On a serious note, that is a good suggestion.
Making the interface customisable would be great, like some option to arrange the UI elements the way you want.

Thanks GOG for restoring the ability to configure where backups/extras downloads go to! I'm testing it out right now and if all goes according to play I'll be able to use Galaxy for downloading once again. Very much appreciated!

Indeed it would be great to have the friend list integrated directly into the main window on the right hand side similar to how the Discord chat software has it, whether it is the default or as a user configurable option to have a docked friend list. I think it would be best as an option though, so that people can choose whether they prefer it as a window or integrated into a pane of the main window.

If it were an option, I'd definitely prefer to have it integrated as a right side pane in the main UI for sure.

No, the Windows version is out of beta.
So, I must uninstall old version or it will update?

^^^ Nup.

Accident Lee loaded this instead ooof Guild of Dungeoneering (welp, not playeded anythang in a chicken-ass age) 'n', liek, it eated up all mah (as good as) office compy's resources becaaause it totes sucks.

(cappy) BUT.

Seems to work a-ok nao. Looks identi-similar to before, tho-tho.

*closes Galaxy forevah*
I cannot connect. I just got updated to 1.2.6 and it keeps on saying cannot connect to GOG Service and GOG Galaxy shutdown.
It still says 1.2.6 BETA on the top of the app.

I thought with this update it was out of Beta?


I also had an error while updating saying "it cant update" or something like that but when i launched it again it worked.

If you have preview updates enabled still, I think it will still say beta...

I would also really like the option to get rid of the friendlist&chat window. The UI is nice enough for both of them to be on the main application window. I also thing the same goes for the settings window.

I unchecked the "test upcoming updates" option on settings and relaunched and it doesn't say beta anymore
So yeah, you are right :)
