Everybody is here for the sale, all eyes on GOG... sounds like good time for a 1.3.0 beta hint hint. Just saying. ;)
Where is the option to automatically download all offline installers?

Trenjeska: Where is the option to automatically download all offline installers?
There is no option to automatically download all offline installers... you can download offline installers manually by clicking the MORE button -> Backup & Goodies.

But I can already do that without the help of any client, so what use is the client if I can't use it to download the games in the way GoG is supposed to work? Or at least was meant to work when they started this project some 8-9 years ago. DRM free, everything offline

It works exactly like GOG is supposed to work. You can't download offline installers automatically using the browser or the old GOG downloader either. You had to initiate the download for each game you wanted to download. GOG Galaxy is meant as a improved replacement for the old GOG Downloader for people that want a download system that is more advanced than your standard browser and offers more features.

With Galaxy you have an option of downloading the games files (which also do not include DRM by that way) in a similar way that Steam does OR you can download the offline installers like you could with the old GOG Downloader. Galaxy won't automatically do it for you though, you have to go to each game in your library and click on the game -> MORE -> Backup & goodies. Then you can select the offline installer and Galaxy will download it.

Unless I am confusing what you mean by "automatically"...

That will take so much time. For each of the 175 games to do that and once you click the gog downloader links from 'MORE' it leaves the games listing page and when you click back, the site is back at the top of your games at page 1 as it doesnt store the state in the url anymore (/account/games/page/2 doesnt work anymore nor does account/games/updated)
The only use for a client for me, would be to NOT have to click through all the pages. I just want a local repo of all my game installers and be able to keep that up to date without installing as the repo has to live on a file server.

There are community made tools to do stuff like that, try looking into gogrepo. That may offer what you are looking for.

Oh my! thank you :D It seems this is very much like the solution that I have been searching for!

Be sure to look around though or ask in the thread. I think someone took over that project as the original developer stopped working on it. Just letting you know so that you can hopefully get the newest version. :)

I know it was added a while ago.

But i really wanna say thanks for adding CLOUD SAVES :)
Is the Galaxy Cloud Save limit per game or per account?

AlexRavenheart: Is the Galaxy Cloud Save limit per game or per account?
I think there is a limit per game.
Wieso ist da zuwenig Speicherplatz wenn ich 32 GB Ram Habe und auf dem Spiellaufwerk 300 GB frei. und wieso quatzschen schon wieder alle Ausländisch hier. Schrotttool. und spiel , hätte man Wichser nennen sollen.
Und mein SYSTEMLAUFWERK geht jeden einen feuchten kerricht an.

I know Galaxy isn't supposed to look like this at 1080p. Care to explain, GOG?
EDIT: Why is Galaxy a game that has a NVidia profile? I had to turn off FXAA to fix this.

toxicTom: Now the blurry font rendering hit me too... I could swear it still was fine yesterday.
Good to know, thanks :-)
I'd check your settings in your Galaxy profile (listed as GOG (Good Old Games) (galaxyclient.exe) in my Nvidia control panel).

Hello. I have GOG Galaxy 1.2.37 on Mac OS X 10.9.5 and from about february 5 I can not execute it. it does not open and throws an exception. I can not do anything. Is this a bug or definitely it's no longer compatible with that mac version? Is it possible to get the latest compatible version with Mac OS X 10.9.5?

Thanks!
