asimpleguy: 1. What does "Game Installation folder" mean?
This is the folder the games will be installed under. So if you set the folder to "C:\Games" and install Tyrian 2000 through Galaxy, it will be installed to "C:\Games\Tyrian 2000".

avatar
asimpleguy: 2, What does "Other downloads folder" mean?
This is the folder any download that is not an installed game will be downloaded to. If you choose to download the backup installer for Tyrian 2000 (which would be the same as downloading the classic installer through your browser) it will be saved under in the tyrian_2000 subfolder of the folder you enter here.

asimpleguy: I really do want to keep an archived copy of the games I've bought on my hard drive. Can/how do I tweak GOG Galaxy settings to accomplish that?
Galaxy is not a good option for keeping track of your installers. It can do that, but it is a pain, and it won't be able to recognize obsolete installers.
To get it to identify your already installed games, there are 3 options.
First one is to set the Game Installation folder to "C:\Games" and see if it finds your games. You may need to restart Galaxy for it to identify your already installed games.
Second one is to tell it to scan and import the "C:\Games" folder you already have, and it should be able to identify any installed games.
Third one is to select in your Galaxy library a game you've already installed, and under More there should be the option to select folder to import. Selecting the specific game folder should make Galaxy identify it as the game's folder and proceed with the verification process.
Different people had different success rate with different methods, so see if any of those works for you. Worst case scenario, reinstall the games while Galaxy is installed on your machine, and the installer (assuming a relatively newer one) should register the game with Galaxy once it's done.

I've had mixed success getting Galaxy to recognize already installed games. Some will import just fine, others not, and that's having the latest offline installer versions unless there were some more of those updates where something changed but the version number didn't (i.e. "silent updates").

Other than that and not being able to launch Quake with command lines via Galaxy like you can with the Steam client version, it's been good so far. Just needs some more slight issues addressed.

May as well add a wishlist link to draw more attention to this: https://www.gog.com/wishlist/galaxy/set_launch_options_command_line_arguments_for_games

Pawel1995: Sorry, I don't have the english patchnotes.

According to the patchnotes, this was added to GOG Galaxy in 1.2.13, a feature that I was waiting a long time for, finally the fps counter is visible the whole time.

Though it seems like it is NOT working for me. In most games nothing happen and in GWENT I get an in game message saying that I have to run GOG Galaxy in the background, in order to use this feature, when I press Ctrl+Shift+Tab.

However opening the layout with Shift+Tab, works perfectly in Gwent?

BKGaming: I've only used it in a few games so far, but it has worked fine for me. It can be really hard to see in some games, and it defaults to the same location as notification which is bottom right. Took me a bit to realize it was actually working.

What version are you on? It's not included in 1.2.14 but is still included in the 1.2.15 Beta. Perhaps fill out a mantis report with your Galaxy logs. Instructions are in the top post.
I just re-installed GOG Galaxy and indeed it's now working in the newest Beta version :-)

Though when already talking about it, I would like to suggest:

* Let the fps counter ON when the user enables it. If I restart my PC/ the game/GOG Galaxy, it should not turn out automatically
* Let the user choose in which corner the fps counter is, bottom right is sometimes a bad spot in certain games.
* Let the user choose the color (and size? :-) ) of the number. White is not optimal in all games either.

Pawel1995: * Let the user choose in which corner the fps counter is, bottom right is sometimes a bad spot in certain games.
If you change the notifications position under settings, I believe it will also change the fps position. But your notifications will show there too.

Greywolf234: ...
I was scanning through this thread, and I noticed your avatar. Where is that image from? For whatever reason it looked like the icon from Rise of Nations to me, but it's definitely not it.

Google produces this as the most likely source.

Well there you have it... Torchlight 2. I knew it was somewhat familiar, I played it in local co-op with my brother. Thank you for your google-fu, JMich!

Right, but I would like to have notifications on the bottom right (just because that's the position all launchers on my PC display their notifications) and have the fps counter in top left :D
GOG Galaxy uses the original Killing Time executable file (KILLTIME.EXE) instead of fixed one (GOGLauncher.exe). It causes the infamous problem with incorrect displaying of colors.

I have submitted this little issue almost a month ago but there is still no solution (except bypassing the client).

Your ticket was closed, but the problem is still there. I know it is scheduled to be fixed - you'll see an update for this game soon (probably today).

Update should be live - build version is labeled 'gog-6'
I've recently noticed that the GOG downloads try to install Galaxy by offering "GOG GALAXY GAME INSTALLERS" as the default. I have no interest in installing Galaxy, is there a way to turn CLASSIC GAME INSTALLERS as the default option?

This change had not been notified loudly enough, so it was a shock for me to see GOG attempting to force Galaxy on people like this.
avatar
MikPal: is there a way to turn CLASSIC GAME INSTALLERS as the default option?
No official way yet but you can try adalia's script. Or use the gog downloader for downloads (or Galaxy, or lgogdownloader, or gogrepo.py).
