Hello. Thronebreaker is offline all the time, can't take chest treasures in gwent. Why?

Mean.Jim: Why do I now have a "Game overlay" entry in my game library? It shows up in both the Galaxy client as well as the library view in the browser (see screen shot).
I also have this issue, version 1.2.37
Attachments:
I'm not sure if this post will actually be read by one of the developers of Galaxy, but I was hoping to pass along a few suggestions for future Galaxy updates. PLEASE CONSIDER ADDING THESE FEATURES.

#1. Allow games on our lists to be renamed (this is the most important suggestion on the list!)
#2. Replace the GOG logo (top left hand corner) with the current design, not the old purple design.
#3. Allow the game list on the left hand side of the screen to be hidden (using a hide/show tab), or remove the game list entirely and add a separate page for our game list (not the library, but a new page where we can launch our games).
#4. Add a text only option for our games list for those who do not want to see game covers/icons.

Unfortunately many of the problems I have with Galaxy never seem to be addressed, so I hope that GOG will start taking customer opinions a little more seriously. That being said, keep up the good work!

Hey,

we have released a new update to GOG Galaxy, available only if you have enabled Beta Galaxy updates.

We would like to have it on beta channel for two reasons.
1. We have updated the code signing certificate and are unsure about the reaction of antiviruses. They might treat this update with special care, as certificate changed.
2. We would like to verify the changes improving the security of GOG Galaxy application before it gets passed to everyone

When is browsing by original release date coming back?

RealSirPsycho: When is browsing by original release date coming back?
Yeah, and when is sorting by "Newest first" going to be properly fixed? Why Spear of Destiny (1993) appears as the latest released game I own?

Jazz Jackrabbit 2, for me! For bonus points, apparently the Christmas pack was released before the game itself.
When will GOG Galaxy remember login password? Nothing promotes using a crappy insecure login like having to constantly type it in. Nobody wants to type in a long, complicated, but secure passphrase all the time.

Um as long as your don't log out or re-install Galaxy, it should remember your password.
Unlike Steam, if I exit the app or reboot my computer, I have to put the passphrase in again. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

Go to the GOG COM logo, click settings -> general -> The auto login checkbox should be checked. If it not, then check it and Galaxy should remember the login.

GOG COM -> Settings -> General -> Auto Login
Some of my Games don't sync with the GOG Client. There are a few times when I've clocked hours on a game, yet it still indicates as 0 hours played. That's one of the things I have a problem with. Is there something I need to do?
I see some people mentioning having to re-enter passwords and stuff. I don't really have that issue. My details are saved as usual. I can log in without problems. I guess, the only other issue I have sometimes, is when I am trying to download / install a game and I get the message "Server Issue" or something like that.
I don't really have an issue with GOG in general. I like it. I was brought onto it by my brother. Really great client and I don't think it's fair to compare GOG with Steam (Yes, I also have a Steam Account) because they both have their traits and faults. I dunno, that's just my opinion I guess (and my brother). Thank you GOG for all the hard work you put into your Client.

Having this issue also. When I go to the store page, it redirects me to the Witcher 3 Free DLC Program.
Every time I start my PC I get this message (There was a problem updating the application, you can download the latest version from https://www.gog.com/galaxy),I have version 1.2.47 BETA. And now I see that there is an update (1.2.48 BETA)
