2018 and GOG still
- Unpacks temp files to my OS drive (a.k.a. my ssd, so it's killing it) before installing it to the drive that I choose
- Updates when I start it up. Constantly. You are like Google, just updating and nobody can tell the difference.


Are you even looking at what people complain about?
Is there any way to make the main part of the gog client BIGGER, and what I mean by that is I cannot read anything on the screen because it is so tiny, it would be nice to be able to change the font size. Or maybe you could put in a ZOOM like on a regular browser.
Still can't install or update a game without a dozen prompts for the admin password.
GOG Galaxy Helper.exe has caused GOG Galaxy to freeze on my twice now.. all i was doing was looking at reviews on a game... i just reinstalled Galaxy will post back if it does it again.



UPDATE So it still does it, i guess it's just a bug in the client itself :/

Still having trouble geting to next town in run..I get on the horse still get killed before/right at the turn. how can I do this
without being killed.
I can not find a way to increase the dize of the text in Galaxy. On my 21 inch class monitor it is almost too small to read for my 72 year old eyes. Is there an adjustment I missed?

That's not possible at the current state I'm afraid. Not from the Galaxy adjustment menu anyway..
I think playing around with Windows DPI scalling could help.

I think that there should be a link to the discussion forum of a game on the game's details page - either directly, or in the drop-down menu that is next to the "PLAY" button.

Currently, to get to the discussion forum, you need to go to COMMUNITY --> Discussion forums, search for the game (while typing its without errors), and only then do you get to the forums where you could find a solution to a problem you are experiencing.
@GOG Staff:

With E3 coming up and with the focus on gaming it would be nice to get some info on update 1.3 or dare I say even a beta release. I think we have been more than patient here.

There is a View Forum button under MORE... that will take you to the games forums board.

Sometimes... more often the people end up in "General" without noticing and post cryptic questions...

Yea, not all the links seem to be set or working right, somtimes they default to general. Most seem to link to the correct forum board though.

I don't know if it's only me but I just started downloading a heavy game (2.5 GB) and the allocating disk size procedure was slow and caused my PC to lag and stutter mid-way through the process, which I have never experienced on other services like this (Steam, Origins, Hi-Rez shitty launcher for their games)

(Heck, I just started downloading a +8GB game on Steam and the allocation process took less than 5 seconds, compared to the painful and worrying 2 minutes of Galaxy)

"GOG Galaxy-powered multiplayer games offer matchmaking and online play."

This is literally the only reason why I would use Galaxy. The last time I tried using it, this wasn't possible. How can I tell which games currently use Galaxy as a multiplayer client?
Is Galaxy no longer optional? I can no longer find links to download my games without Galaxy. When it was first introduced it was stated that Galaxy would be optional. If that is no longer the case then I will no longer do business with GoG.
