Hello!

Is there any way to improve GOG Galaxy perfomance on slow configurations?

When I run it on standard desktop with i5 or i7, it works nicely. But every time I try to run it on Win10 tablet with Intel Cherry Trail I encounter real problems: CPU throttling, random freezes and more, more and more - even when the game simply downloads. In comparison Steam client doesn't have this problems at all.

Yeah, and there is another problem with freezes: you have to be extra accurate and fast when trying to hit Install from popup menu in a game card. There is a very short timeout before menu fades, so if GOG Galaxy freezes you have to do it over and other: reveal the down arrow on game card, press it and try to press Install so fast as you could. Why don't you simply place Install button on a game card in Library - it's the most common action with game as I think.

Yovach: What's the easiest way to download and play games with my friends without using another damn launcher? Is it going to get to the point where I have to open a separate launcher for every game? I thought gog was about no drm?
try downloading direct from your games section on gog.com. if you do use the launcher and you don't want to use it when you play with your friends or at other times just launch the games directly, i make sure to have a link in my start menu but you can do it from the desktop (if you have it create a desktop icon) or from the folder itself. the launcher is just to make it easier (when it works right) to download and keep your games organized, it is not required.

PS. for more info see picture

Tuknar: The "Buy series" list on store pages isn't loading in Galaxy. When clicking the "next" arrow the games appear briefly but then disappear. Is there a way to clear the web cache for Galaxy? I think that might fix it

Also, when browsing all games in the store, the installed games tab takes up a bunch of space that hides more games to the right. Galaxy doesn't scale that good with 1366x768 laptop resolution, it sucks that things don't fit well on the screen.
I've experienced the same problem with both the "News" section and the "Now On Sale" section.

On the bottom of the page?

If I switch the pages I see the icons for a second, but I can't acess them because they disapper after that moment of visibility.

Yes.
that happens to me too.
I'm having the same problem. For the last few days, those sections don't display properly. I hope it gets fixed, soon.

same issue here, using latest beta win 7 64
First time accessing with the new update for GOG Galaxy, and there is a little slowdown. But the worst part is the games advertised are missing. I can scroll left and right, but I only see the games flash for an instant before they disappear. This would be the same with the news reel, scrolling left and right. They are not displaying properly.
I wouldn't mind being able to change the icons to list format as it used to be. There should be a setting, but there currently is not.
I'll have to go to the main website?
I'm using Windows 10
