takezodunmer2005: Takes forever for the install to come up, and the disappearing icons are irritrating particulary when offline! Galaxy needs a dedicated offline mode to switch off the icon's relience on it's internet connection/browser's online cache, as it seems the icons are tyed too much to them...

BTW, I have close to 600 games installed via galaxy!
Both issues are important for us, I hope you'll get fixes for them soon! :)
Hey everyone,

we just released GOG Galaxy 1.2.29. This release brings the features from the BETA release to all users, plus some additional changes - including a new animation on desktop notifications, some fixes for the images in the sidebar, an overlay-caused hang on game exit on some platforms, and a few other things.

The changelog in the client app should update in a few minutes (or, at worst, hours), due to small technical difficulties around that :)

Taro94: I have a question regarding cloud saves - I'd want to start using it, but from what I can see, if I delete a save file (via the game itself), it's NOT deleted from the cloud (i.e. when I download the zipped saves via the backup and bonuses screen I can see it still contains the deleted saves).

Now, is this intended behavior? How can I really delete a save file if that's the case?
Files are fully deleted on the backend after a 24 hour period.

omega64: Release an update to fix that. :P
Should be fixed at this point... :)

MadDemon64: When I look at the changelog, it includes two copies of 1.2.29, both of which were updated on November 4th according to the changelog.
Oh dear, how did I miss that :( Thanks for pointing this out, I'll try to clean up! :)

phqueue: Good evening,

any idea what's causing the behaviour illustrated on the following screenshots?

Store page:
i.imgur.com/Dy9FB2U.jpg

Library:
i.imgur.com/beRP3z2.jpg
i.imgur.com/lXKUWYY.jpg

Client should be up to date (as indicated by "1.2.29") and logging in works no problemo.

Already tried a couple things like reinstalling or running the client as administrator, reinstalling and running the setup.exe as administrator, but no cigar.

Running Win7 x64, by the way.

Edit: Everything community-related like the forums or the wishlists is displayed correctly.
Please check everything that might be blocking calls to e.g. https://www4-static4.gog.com/ or other *.gog.com https addresses.
Firewall, antivirus - try to disable it and check who's the culprit. :)

Lucian_Galca: Still doing this in the new version guys:

Did you fill up a mantis report about it?
avatar
phqueue: Tried both temporarily deactivating the antivirus service and bypassing the firewall (via "exposed host", the firewall itself cannot be deactivated) but to no avail. The store and the library are still messed up formatting-wise.

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.
Of course it's not the only host you need to allow for it to work. Something is blocking downloading CSS and JS from one of the static servers while allowing other gog.com calls. Maybe you can whitelist everything *.gog.com ?

Hi,

I just wanted to say we're looking into the update issues right now. We're not exactly sure what's going on, but we're investigating multiple avenues. We'll get back to you soon :)

Johny.: Did you fill up a mantis report about it?

Lucian_Galca: I've reported and updated the ticket a few times already here: http://mantis.gog.com/view.php?id=5262

I'll create a new ticket.
If it's there and acknowledged, please don't create a new ticket. :) Thank you for creating the original one.

eschenbacher: After the last windows 10 update (v.1709), Galaxy managed to auto start at system boot. Before this update, it doesn't even start in the background because I edited msconfig.

I really hate such penetrating, importunate, invasive, obstrusive or what ever is the correct english term, pieces of software. I uninstalled Galaxy, even therefore I cannot play gwent anymore.

GOG looks like a really customer friendly company, but Galaxy destroys this impression effectively.
Restarting applications which were running before shutdown is a new feature in Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update (v. 1709), as explained in this thread by a Support Engineer from Microsoft.

We'll be looking into this issue soon.

Until then closing the application before rebooting or shutting the computer down should help, which I know is not ideal.
