Can you order the PS4 version of Cyberpunk through Galaxy?

gogAcct12345: Can you order the PS4 version of Cyberpunk through Galaxy?
I'm afraid that is not possible, but you can do it here.
If I order a game in here which is also available in steam, will you give us the stream key so we can activate it? How does it work if the game is in steam?

Since GOG and Steam are two different platforms, you will not be given an activation key in such case.

KKDivan: How can I disable gog from starting when I start a game? I wouldn't really mind it but I wont have internet for a month at a time soon and it's just a waste of resources on a laptop.
Start your game with the shortcut from the game folder or with the exe of the game.

GOG Galaxy keeps deleting my shortcuts and replacing them with shortcuts to itself.

I only use GOG Galaxy to download updates every couple months. But frequently when I open it, it starts deleting my shortcuts that point directly to the game exe and replaces them with shortcuts that launch GOG galaxy.

It's specifically happened with Soldak games and with Banished that I remember.

Is there a way to stop this behavior? I keep most of my game shortcuts pinned in the start menu, and a few on the desktop, and it seems to attack the shortcuts in both places.

I'm still using the old 1.2 version, and running Windows 10.

The store no longer loads anything when you click on it. The store itself loads fine but the moment you click on any item it just loads into a blank page.

Latest non 2.0 release.

Also, some people seem to have this issue with the 2.0 client as well.

Is it possible that Galaxy is a bit buggy on games which it have not touched in years? It did recognize the folders and the games. But it behaves like a total douche when trying to update stuff or verify/repair stuff. Dropping Configuration errors left and right, killing off desktop icons, make games unplayable. Its a total broken mess.

I tried to polish up No mans Sky, Banished and SW - Republic Commando. Banished worked (although here too I did needed to reconnect the desktop starter with the gamefolder and pick a new icon since the gog icon got killed). Republic Commando and NMS got killed.

I did liked to use Galaxy to DL the exe installers and occasionally to update the games. Whatever you guys changed, it lures me back to the browser; not towards Galaxy.

Ya, my complaints too... I'm wondering if they've just shifted attention to version 2.0... I've been intending to try it, but none of the games I have installed have gotten updates lately so I haven't bothered yet.
Not a big deal, but these aren't my oldest games (see attachment).
