How do I download a version of a game that is not the latest version. Don't tell me to turn off auto update and use the override section. Been there done that, the entire section is greyed out and remains greyed out no matter what changes I make.
It would be nice if Galaxy would just have its own integrated way of accessing the forums and other community stuff.

Also, when are you adding a search bar for games at the main page of the store, guy? Because you're making looking for new games more convoluted for new users than it has to be.
i wanna order this game king of fighter so how i can order this game??
In the store if i choose a filter on gametypes (action/adventure/indie etc) and i look at one item in the results then the filter is gone. Is it possible to remember a filter in the store?
Hi everyone. Im new to both GoG and MacBooks. I have paid for and downloaded Theme Hospital but every time I click on the tile to open the game, it just bobs up and down a few times, then nothing happens. No fault window, nothing. Its like I never pressed it. I am not very proficient with computers, and I apologise if I'm missing something blatantly obvious. But any help would be great.

I have just updated MacOS to Catalina 10.15 if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

Hello from Russia. I like GOG.com , drm-free games are good. But could you make some changes to your Galaxy client already? Here what i mean. Every time i scroll throw lists of games ( like sales , new etc.) when i click on a game picture , page of the game opens in the same window. I cant just use Ctrl+ LMB to open a new page . Actually i can , but if i press Ctrl+LMB the link will open in my browser , not in Galaxy client. That so annoying man. I can't stand it. This makes looking for games to be as hard as possible. I mean it's a very simple thing to do , why don't you fix it . Hope you got me. Love ya. Thanks

Did you solve this?

dean120451: Bonjour à tous. Je suis nouveau sur GoG et MacBooks. J'ai payé et téléchargé Theme Hospital, mais chaque fois que je clique sur la vignette pour ouvrir le jeu, il y a juste des hauts et des bas plusieurs fois, puis rien ne se passe. Aucune fenêtre de faute, rien. C'est comme si je n'avais jamais appuyé dessus. Je ne maîtrise pas très bien les ordinateurs et je vous prie de m'excuser si quelque chose me manque de façon flagrante. Mais toute aide serait formidable. my ip birthday wishestneb
Je viens de mettre à jour MacOS vers Catalina 10.15 si cela peut vous aider.

I just installed Gog Galaxy again today but the client won't open.

Am running Windows 10 1903 so wondering if it's actually some kind of compatibility issue or other bug.
Is there any way to stop it from creating start menu shortcuts? They're cluttering up my start menu and all ther launch shortcuts also launch Galaxy first for some inexplicable reason, and thus are useless to me since the only reason I would launch a game from the start menu is if I didn't want to wait the 10 minutes it takes for galaxy to load up.
I cannot login to gog galaxy in network, using hardware firewall. Do I need to open and forward any custom tcp/udp ports to make it work? Also, is there any complex error_log? So I can see what's wrong with it, because "connection error" is not informative at all.

Taking a screenshot and play a game and share with your friend. Awesome game.
