Heya, people. If i want to move a game from one hdd to another, just cut/paste the folder and reimport it will work properly? No "damage" to registry will be done?

I can't say I've had any trouble with it in the past, though last time I did it (a year ago?) it didn't like it when I moved the games that used to be in bundles. Thankfully, those tend to be only a few megabytes each.

BubbaSatori: GOG Galaxy locked up

"GOG Galaxy not connected."

"Connect now."

Close GOG Galaxy rinse and repeat ans still locked up.

I click on the connect now button and nothing happens.
Any solutions?
From both of your posts it seems like you have some kind of Galaxy<->internet connection problems. Firewalls, whatever - try disabling them and check.

We are aware of a bug occuring for some users - where they couldn't stay logged in - it looked similar. We have added different logs to the app, which will be released with the next version. Then we'll gather logs on mantis and pinpoint the issue.
I wonder when we may see VOIP on Galaxy or party chat type features. Not that I would probably use them a lot, but I feel like that's still one of the biggest things missing in regards to MP on GOG.
When GOG announced Galaxy I was hoping they will adapt some existing solution like jitsi or Ekiga
Did not happen though ; p

No. I have the same problem and I have never run any firewalls or whatever. This is clearly a Galaxy issue (probably an incoming bug with the last update) because the GOG Downloader works just fine.
"GOG Galaxy not connected to GOG.com" bug here too. No firewall (except the Windows one), no antivirus, everything as usual.

Edit: btw, I tried reinstalling Galaxy and running it as admin, with no success. I can't login and/or connect to GOG.com through the client.

I guess it's whole service went down. I made an experiment and signed out of web-site. As a result - I can't sign in now :/
I hope that it will be fixed reall soon...

I have exactly the same issue hence I'm on this thread.
Store works but chosing an individual game in Library says:
"NOT CONNECTED - GOG Galaxy cannot offer online functionalities at this time, because it is not connect to GOG.com"

With a CONNECT NOW button underneath.

This started happening Sunday morning. I purchased Memoranda just now via the Store and a DLC for another game (through Galaxy) and that all worked fine - but can't install the DLC or Memoranda.

So something must be up with the DNS (long timeout) or just on the distribution servers themeselves (or torrent trackers however you do it);.

Everything else is working (posting this message + Spotify + all normal internet activities)

I can confirm this bug. Can not connect to galaxy even after several restarts. The passwort was accepted. But after login, a error pops up and the galaxy client is not connected.

Same for me.
Can't connect either, seems to be down.
I can't log on through the client either now. Either with or withouth VPN. I sometimes get a "An error occured during signing in" Clicking on the Connect Now button in the client
Same problem here...
