echosa: Is that an issue specifically with The Witcher https://downloader.vip/malwarebytes/ https://downloader.vip/rufus/ ? I've downloaded 10+ games in the last week with Galaxy with no issues. Not saying others don't have issues; I'm sure they do. Perhaps I'm just lucky?

ALINITYLITAS: just purchased witcher during install it keeps stopping ..server problems ??? https://filezilla.software/
Yes there was some server problems.

node357: Why does Galaxy not request 2FA when it's enabled on my account? I'm asked for the 2FA when I log in to GOG with a web browser, but not Galaxy. Big security hole.
It will request 2FA if you login through Galaxy on a different computer. Try it, it should work.
Galaxy not displaying screenshots and comments/reviews on store pages. Maybe something to do with latest Win10 update?

Hey, thanks for letting us know about the issue. It is not related to the Windows update. We are working on fixing it.
I have in Galaxy ticked "run on windows startup", it is also turned on in "launching" windows manager, and still it is not starting on windows start. Any ideas what to do?

Wow wtf! What has happened to gog! its easier to download and use copy games than this and I ruddy paid for them! x3 attempts at downloading tw3 now and everytime at the end it shows fail! Seriously even just looked on the stupid help thing and again wtf! What is all that about? I paid for the game ages ago! and cannot download it! Seriously, usually on my other games on steam! Hands down 100% this is crazy! Erm! word of advice don't bother with gog no more just go steam for games! I mod with vortex etc etc...zzzzzzzzzzz! Move games from hdd to ssd again etc! Why buy a game from a company that cannot 'as standard' allow you to download the game only to make you go through stupid ways to download 'make it work' etc! REALLY! GOG! get a grip! No wonder steam wipes the floor with you lot! Just wasted so much time on this! Let me think, buy a game from a site eg steam, download then play!! Gog! Get back to the basics ffs!
Something very weird it's happening to me right now with Gog Galaxy and any community related page (forums, wishlist and such), but not in storepage.

Every single time I open or navigate in a community related page with Galaxy, my web browser it's launched with this URL:
]https: // staticxx.facebook.com / connect/xd_arbiter.php?version=44

What's appening?

Navigating the front-page has been very non-responsive on macOS since the last update. No problems on the forums, profile or games-list though.

I had it too. The update to the galaxy client fixed mine.
Why is it, i am logged in on the website with my email address, but if i try the same email address in GOG galaxy on my PC it say unknown email address. I tried setting up a account on it, with the same user name but obviously said its in use as it is mine.

So how can i use my GOG account on GOG galaxy?
