we have released GOG Galaxy 1.2.50.
This update will fix the slowdown of Galaxy startup introduced in last version,
as well as continues with strengthening security of the application.
Update will not install.

As usual.
Seems better than before, but still requires 10 seconds to load, so I consider it slow...

For comparison, my browser (Vivaldi) with more than 160 tabs starts in 2 seconds.
Where can i see Winter Sales term?
GOG galaxy freezes on sale page.
For some time (years) requests for options in Tag filtering have been requested. Currently set at hard OR. (Space OR RPG gives all space games including shooters/sims and all rpgs including sword/sorcery). Optimally can we choose between AND/OR or sub-optimally at least change it to hard AND? (Space AND RPG which would give only those that meet both criteria)? --- Perhaps not the forum for this, but Galaxy wishlist and general forum posting has yielded no results in years.

It hurst those customers that buy a large library of games the most to not be able to sort the games and play them and it *seems* like it wouldn't be a hard fix to put in.
I'm also experiencing severe performance issues since the latest patch. Store frontpage freezes for several seconds on startup and my library is unresponsive. At best it's a half a minute load, at worst it times out.
BeatriceElysia: GOG galaxy freezes on sale page.
Same here. Looks like the new format (video thumbnails ?) is requesting too much to the Galaxy renderer is using.

For the time being, you can change your settings and have Galaxy starting in the "Library" instead of the "Store". Let me know if you need assistance on how to do so.
Just wanted to add on to this issue. The front page and library view is literally freezing and sometimes I have to force quit galaxy.
I've got the same problem with the front page, sometimes I have to quit galaxy because it doesn't start loading.
I have been reinstalling Pillars 2 & I have big problems with download stopping at certain times unless I relauch the client.

Games aren't displayed in my library. Is there any solution for this issue?
I've tried solution with deleting config.json file and content from Storage folder, but without success.
I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but verifying installed games often does not work at all for me. It will just stay at 0.0 MB / 0.0 MB (0.0 MB/s) and keep verifying/updating forever until i hit abort. It's pretty annoying.

Give it some time.This just means it doesnt download anything and is just verifying the game files and they are ok.
The new patch keeps dropping out of the games, trying to play darkest dungeon. lasts about 3 minutes then drops out back to the home screen.
