Cadaver747: GOG Galaxy game stats can not be deleted / erased at the moment.
I was given a partial solution for my case though, probably due to insignificant amount of data.
Glad they could give you at least partial help. Thanks for the update.

It was more than a partial help, my stats were nullified (game timer and achievements), however the games can't be removed from history ("recently played") completely. And the team had to do it manually. So, probably only the luckiest persons with very little game data (literally) may hope to achieve oblivion.

Probably someday we'll get this feature available for our leisure.
I just realized that with GOG Galaxy 2.0 on the way, and CD Projekt RED being on board with how GOG conducts business on their platform & clients. Since CD Projekt RED is slated to be one of the last reputable developers going into 2020, this means a LOT, as EA & Activision, Microsoft & Ubisoft, Epic Games & Valve Corp (Steam), and etc. are increasingly anti-consumer on every front, and legal issues around loot boxes threaten to ban them outright in the countries where it matters most any day now. With all this going on, GOG is about to hit HUGE user base increase from E3 2019 onward, and I'm here with my popcorn to watch the GOG Galaxy 2.0 + CD Projekt RED vs. The World drama that is about to go down!!

Viva La Non-Exclusivity Resistance!!!
BUG: Current Summer Sale keeps opening Facebook page in my browser hwen I navigate to the Store page in current Galaxy (1.2.56)
(Aside: cannot find easy way to report bug within Galaxy - punted me out to browser)
Facebook page in my browser popup everytime i start Galaxy, today. WTF is this ?

Remove that crap from Galaxy. I never used face-fucking-book in my life and never going to.

I'm going to stop using Galaxy and buying games here altogether on GOG if this shit keeps up.
GOG Galaxy icon in the taskbar is just a piece of paper.. BUG?

(i already reinstalled gog galaxy and it still does it...maybe the windows 10 may 2019 update broke it?)

Is it possible to disable smooth scrolling in the GOG Galaxy client?
I've tried starting it with the Chromium flag (--disable-smooth-scrolling), but it doesn't do anything.
Guys,

I love what you are building here.

I have 1,800+ games on steam but I'll start buying here when possible.

You have my full support.

Had the same problem. Any way to fix this? Did a complete scan, but did not find anything suspicious. Must be a bug. I am using Galaxy 1.2.56 and my browser is Firefox!
I'm new to this, and I'm kind of old, and frustrated as (heck).

I installed Obduction in ins free giveaway, and somehow it won't let me play. I got the messatge "Unknown Version - Cloud Saves Synced" and that was it. "Play" was 'greyed-out' and the game did not appear as a shortcut on my computer. I've checked Downloads and Program Files, nothing. I don't want to miss the window of opportunity here, but I'm very frustrated and want to play the game!

I glanced over the list of topics, and didn't see this issue, so forgive me if I missed it there and this has already been covere.

Thanks for whatever help comes.

Go to the library page of the game, click More, Manage Installation, Verify and Repair. Maybe something went wrong while installing.
Is there a special reason why there is no way to reach "GOG connect" via the galaxy client?
I mean, after your "splendid" decision to use angularJS to give us a slideshow feature (which could also be implemented in a better way) and cutting off old Gecko/Goana based browsers (and telling us how you can't support old browsers ... if you simply hadn't used questionable third party js libraries, there wouldn't have been the problem in the first place) I have the option to either use google chrome, which is a privacy issue as well as google going to heavy hand the adblocker question in the near future or FF with Quantum engine which is notoric for clusterfucks like the certificate fuckup lately and ignoring the community or some other browser you will tell us which isn't supported. So please provide us the full feature set in your galaxy client: I know it is based on chromium, but I hope for your sake you took privacy seriously there. If not: well, just take a look how shitstorms look like at the paradox privacy statement clusterfuck, the epic store exclusive deal clusterfuck or the redshell spyware in games clusterfuck and ask yourself: "Is it worth it if we provoke a backlash like this becuse of .. whatever?"
Maybe you should optional provide an URL bar to galaxy and while I'm aware of the security issues it might be not THAT hard to implement a sane RegEx to filter the allowed URLs ...

I purchased a couple of games this weekend and started playing them and noticed some issues with my activity feed.

My games in Galaxy sorted by activity last show activity 16 days ago, while the list on the left side of the screen shows that I've played four games in the last three days (this information is correct). Two of them are new, and there's nothing that appears in my activity feed that indicates that I started playing two new games.

I've attached screenshots of what I see in Galaxy and also of what I believe are the relevant Galaxy settings. I'm using a Windows 7 machine and Galaxy 1.2.56. Any thoughts?

The overlay is broken for me in Galactic Civilizations 3. Opens up immediately again after closing with shift+tab.

Edit: This has happened a few times on longer sessions, but starting the game up again, I can't seem to reproduce it.
