You can contact our support at https://support.gog.com, you can also play the game without using Galaxy, just download offline installers for it from https://www.gog.com/account ("Download offline backup game installers")

bzrro20: I've still got the problem. I'm still not seeing the Now on Sale or the News sections. It's still got the blinking effect. I press the buttons to slide to the left and right, I see the icons for a brief moment, then they disappear. I can see the edges of a couple on the left side. It didn't get solved on my end, and I have the latest update (not beta).

Keromyaou: I have exactly the same issue. This happens with both web page and Galaxy. I have three computers. At least one of the computers can show Now on Sale and the News section correctly only on the GOG web page. Even on this computer the galaxy has a problem. This means that not all the computers are affected. For GOG galaxy, both Now on Sale and the News sections behave normal once I extend the galaxy to the full screen by clicking at the right top end corner of the galaxy. This might give some hint about how to solve this issue.
I just tried full screen. It worked. I am able to see the Now on Sale sections and the News sections with full screen turned on.
I hope that they get the dynamic window set properly, because I've got other stuff going on other than GOG Galaxy on my desktop
build.1.2.47

Galaxy in windowed mode is larger than the screen width (1280) and it's not possible to resize it.

While trying to resize I've found a glitch. Clicking the left border results in the whole window jumping 5cm to the right.

From the GalaxyClient log:

hi, can i download game with only one language(English), if yes will galaxy update works automatically.
Been a while since I used GOG...last time was release of Witcher 3. Decided to pick up Pathfinder tonight, and I have to say it was a mistake, solely due to Galaxy.

There is no reason for a 24G game to take more than 2 hours to get to 40% download. Not in this day and age. Using Steam or Amazon or Origin or any other streamsite comparable games are DLed within the hour.

Now, apologists will cite that Galaxy installs as it downloads, so I would have to factor the setup and install times into these other sites. Very true...but I have never had a game take more than two hours to be ready to play. Civ VI, Fallout 4, Skyrim SE, a host of others....less than two hours from purchase to play.

Not two hours to 40%. That is inexcusable, and will make me very hesitant about purchasing via GOG in the future. Slightly lower prices than other providers just isn't worth it.

Sure, I or any other customer could use the 'offline' downloader...but the site setup portrays that method as for backup only, while big glaring buttons urge us to use Galaxy.

The developers and whoever else is `in charge' needs to remember and embody the KISS principle. Galaxy and this site no longer do, which is a shame.
Does anyone know how to change language of a game

Rancher: Does anyone know how to change language of a game
For many games, you can use Galaxy by pressing More -> Settings, and then choosing a language from the Language drop-down. However, that's not true for all games. If it doesn't work for the game you want, give us the name of the game and hopefully someone knows what you'll have to do.

I found out that I don't have to extend Galaxy to the full screen to see the contents of New Sale and the News section. In fact I only have to expand the size of Galaxy wide enough to show the contents. To see the contents of web pages, I just need to scale down the magnification of web page. But still the contents should appear regardless of scaling of either Galaxy or web page.
I got this "Loading Timeout" message and couldn't connect to the store, library, etc. Anybody else got the same problem, or is it just me?

I know it's not all that helpful for me to say "no, not me," but I guess someone has to. Any luck in the past 8 hours?
1: Back and forward buttons only work when clicked; they do not work with dedicated back and forth mouse keys, nor backspace etc...
2: community gog url comments are loading in webbrowser, rather than going to the linked thread
3: network and/or galaxy connection is unavailable, when trying to use multiplayer in Shadow Warrior 2
4: achievement tracking isn't working

Still in the same state. I wonder whether this is a coincidence or not, but my steam app is also acting weird. If no one here getting the same Loading Timeout, maybe something about my connection.
GOG.com newsletter subscribe is Free?
Logout from Galaxy, but now I cannot connect to network.

Uninstalled GOG Galaxy and then tried to reinstalled by downloading the version 1.1.47 installer from the site. Now it says GOG Galaxy Error "Essential components needed to start GOG Galaxy are missing. Please reinstall the application.". Downloaded the installer twice but still the same result. And now I also cannot use IDM to download from the site's library.

Since I already fixed my Steam apps, it looks like this is a problem on Galaxy's end. Somebody care to confirm?

Edit : Whoops, it's version 1.2.47.67
