Venom: Games installed via GOG Galaxy now have shortcuts that also point to GOG Galaxy, so that you will get all the features (game time tracking, achievements, overlay, multiplayer, cloud saves etc.) when launching games via shortcut.
Is it intended that every time a game is verified/updated the shortcut reappears on the desktop even if it was removed?
It's so annoying.
I'm having a recurring bug happening with Bethesda's new releases here.

When I click the green play button in galaxy, be it with the default launch location 'FalloutNVLauncher.exe' or the 'nvse_loader.exe' renamed as 'FalloutNVLauncher.exe' the play button greys out, it then turns green as soon as the game begins, so it isn't tracking time etc. It was working fine up until recently.

I've tried reinstalling Galaxy and the games, I've tried other games and they work fine.
since some updates ago galaxy is no longer working on my mac os sierra 10.12.5 . It closes just a few seconds after startup, after it has logged my account i guess, tried to start it without logging in and i doesn't crash i think. I am trying to troubleshoot this, reistalling and rebooting didn't fix the issue. How do i completely uninstall it for a fresh reinstall on mac os? i haven't found much on this issue so i guess it is pretty uncommon
Just thought I'd pass on some positive news ....

Galaxy 1.2.10 now doesn't monopolise my machine. In fact, I'm typing this with Galaxy still running, which was not possible with 1.2.9.

The updating of Games now seems to work instead of continually crashing.

A major step forward with this build.

Thanks.

Before you do this, you could file a bug report (so we can see what it was) on http://mantis.gog.com/ - details on how to do it are there.

To completely uninstall GOG.com Galaxy on MacOS, close the application and perform those actions in MacOS terminal (deleting these folders):

[i]rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/GOG.com/Galaxy/
rm -rf /Users/Shared/GOG.com/Galaxy
rm -rf /Applications/GalaxyClient.app/[/i]

Could you please tell me how many (approximately) games you have indexed in Galaxy Client?

Thanks, a fresh reinstall didn't fix it, it actually gives me an error when i first launch galaxy after reinstalling it, i reported the problem and uploaded the logs on mantis.gog.com

Venom: Games installed via GOG Galaxy now have shortcuts that also point to GOG Galaxy, so that you will get all the features (game time tracking, achievements, overlay, multiplayer, cloud saves etc.) when launching games via shortcut.
Is there anyway to turn this function off? The reason I like GoG is it doesn't force or insist I run something in the background I don't want. I don't care for the in-game functions GoG Galaxy offers and would rather not have it force-start itself when I run a game. If I wanted it, I'd have it start-up with my system on boot/log-in by default.

I am not a social gamer, I don't need to be reminded how long I've had a game running (not necessarily playing as I fallen asleep at the keyboard before), achievements are tracked in-game if they have them, I don't play on multiple systems (and know how to find my saves if I really need them), and overlays are pretty much useless without the features.

I second this, it would be nice for it not to always make Galaxy shortcuts by default...

bakagringo: Thanks for the clarification. I like to see GOG as a pioneer for consumer-friendliness, and I understand that being in that position makes things more rigid. It is not my intention to put you in a bad light, but I would like to stress that with the recent emergence of web-apps, and increasingly privacy-invading systems, I am worried about GOG not having an option to completely disable tracking. By completely, I also mean completely removing trackers such as Twitter buttons (Clearly I also showed the client connects to Twitter). I understand that some users may want to connect their GOG profile to external services, but I would like there to be an option to disable these systems completely for users who do not wish to be tracked. Since you have a client I believe you should be able to do this client-side without using cookies.

Also, while I am able to block the communication with an application firewall on Mac Os, this is slightly more challenging on systems like Windows where networking works differently.

Furthermore, while analytics is mainly for your own purposes, is it limited to you only, or does Google use it for other means as well?

Thanks for the rapid response.

Edit: I meant twitter.
avatar
Johny.: I understand your opinion on tracking and that you're trying to "hide" yourself from it.

Other than website - Galaxy Client doesn't directly connect to google/twitter/fb. I can't respond whether we can add an option to disable all of it on website, but we won't disable re-captcha on demand, which is also "connected to google" - or youtube, which is also google's (although Galaxy downloads only the thumbnail until you play the video). Forum pages have some JavaScript APIs for facebook loaded etc.

I don't know for sure whether google use the data for other purposes than showing us statistics, but I guess they (companies you mentioned) use big data, algorhythms, neural networks to gather some information and e.g. personalize ads for you. It's too much data to use by a person, but big data algorhythms can handle it.
Okay, so I'm a couple of weeks late to this but it still seems worth asking. Does the browser portion of the Galaxy client save cookies and website data between sessions, and if so how can the user delete that information?

That looks pretty psychedelic.

Are you able to use the printscreen button and then Control + V into MSPaint? If you are able to use the copy & paste method with the printscrenn button, I have a temporary solution you might be able to use here:LINK

Hope that helps.,

No, printscreen dones't work. Got just black screen.

Someone from my team told me that we might have a fix for that screenshot issue - waiting to be released together with another feature. I don't know when it will be released, though.
Hey,

we have released Galaxy 1.2.12. It contains the changes (regarding language codes) that were released on Beta before.

It also contains some minor Frontend fixes.

As always, all the changes you can find in the changelog :)
