matilolo1234: GOG.com newsletter subscribe is Free?
I take it you mean emails about sales?
Yes, they are.
From here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms954377.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

Do not place shortcuts to documents, help or uninstall in the Start menu.

This guideline is ten years old. What is GOG's excuse?

It was actually a guideline introduced with Windows XP if memory serves, but particularly pushed with Vista, because- and this may come as a surprise- this new feature Vista introduced, Start->Search, would find the uninstaller shortcut first a lot of the time.

Stop it already GOG Galaxy. Just stop it. It's not even possible to opt-out of this. Every single game install with Galaxy litters the Start Menu with shortcuts to uninstallers, help files and documents.

Stop it.

Hello.

I just experienced strange Galaxy bug. My settings are set for polsih language and my currency is PLN. I got notification from my wishlist for XCOM and it was displayed in PLN. Once I added to cart and wanted to pay it changed to dollars. I could pay in PLN in website but in Galaxy are prices are displayed in dollars now, even thiugh in settings I can see PLN set.

Is there ongoing bug and do you guys have any advice?

Yes, unfortunately this is an ongoing bug that has been happening to a lot of people. It seems to have something to do with the website, despite the fact that it's only occurring for you in Galaxy. Hopefully GOG will fix it soon.
can you use referal links in GOG galaxy?

I want to support a content creator, and also buy a cool game that I only found/got interested through them.

Happening to me as well. I have my account set to display currency in EUR but Galaxy now only shows in USD. Thus, buying from the Website instead.
10.000 errors. Will it ever work?
Hi.
I really do not like how game selection and sorting works in Galaxy now. I can not separate games and addons when browsing things under $5 for example.
Galaxy is tracking in-game time and achievements (they even appear in the activity feed) but "Recently played" and "Recent achievements" sections in profile are not updated at all.

***

Fixed.

BjHN: 10.000 errors. Will it ever work?
I've been using it since alpha, and it worked 99.9% of the time, so what's your problem 0_o
What's this in the attached image?

No it's not the numer of wishlisted games, it doesn't match.

Anyone ever had issues with Galaxy giving 404s whenever the sub-window used for new thread / new post / reply post loads for the forum?
The main window can navigate the forum, and all main window operations work (can still browse my library, and chat appears to work ok), but the sub-window stubbornly refuses to give anything but 404. Nothing I can tell changed since last night, it was working fine then. Tried reboot of OS, logout/login of client, nothing.
The client hasn't been updated recently, and all firewall rules appear to be correct to allow client functionality.
My last try will be a reinstall of galaxy, but I can't do that for a couple of days yet.
Accessing embed.gog.com from the browser works as well, as does the normal site url.
Strange.

EDIT: Solved. Manually dumped the common webcache and the window is working - posted from Galaxy.

Razka: What's this in the attached image?

No it's not the numer of wishlisted games, it doesn't match.
It could possibly be the number of items on your wishlist that are on sale. I do not even have a number besides my Wishlist label, though I do have items in it that are not on sale.

EDIT 1:
I am still using Galaxy version 1.2.37 by the way, so I might not even be experiencing the same features as you. I don't recall any changes to the wishlist system, though; I don't see anything in the changelog to suggest we are using separate systems.
EDIT 2:
Whelp, I just included a game into my wishlist that is on sale and no change, so either our version difference is ( if there is one ) causing me to not see the issue or it is something else other than what I suggested. :3

Good luck.
