1.2.45 (11 July, 2018)
Changes and Improvements:

2 questions:

Is the backup downloader implemented yet?

Is it a known bug that Galaxy always loads on Windows startup - even when you uncheck the setting to do so?
Anyone's GOG Galaxy, not tracking your hours or showing that you are in-game anymore? it was working fine 3 days ago and yesterday i already put the galaxy exes into my firewall and still nothing... i can download/play games just fine though.
Does anyone else have the problem described in this post?

Is it well known?
I don't think it's worth creating a ticket on Mantis, so I decided to talk about it here.

FireStarter has a standard (square) executable file icon in the GOG Galaxy (1.2.60 BETA), while the desktop shortcut for this game has a proper GOG style icon.

Not critical, but unaesthetic. :D

I just installed Divinity Original Sin 2. It took 13 hours (and used up all of my bandwidth for the month putting me at slow speeds). I am not using the beta version (using: 1.2.59) of Galaxy. With an average I-net speed, about how long would you say this should take? Trying to decide what (if there is one) the problem is and where it lies.
Hi there,
Sorry for my poor english it is not my natural language.
I don't know if this is the right place to post an issue with Galaxy 1.2.59. If not, please move this post to right place and accept my apologies.
My issue:
When i want to add a game to my whish list, an authentication window is open to get my credentials. I put my credentials then i see an error message like the service seems unavailable and try again soon.
(see screenshot).

Hi,

Is there any way of making forum fonts a bit larger? I have 34' monitor, and everything is sooo small here.

This is exactly what's happening to me since the last Galaxy update, and not just happening with the "wishlist" link. Zero problems if I go through Firefox.

The following should work as a workaround:

Please add games to your wishlist by adding them to your cart, clicking on it, hovering your cursor over the game and clicking "Add to wishlist" next to "Remove"
I guess my cloud saves are not syncing?
I have a red box with a hazard sign on it next to my PLAY button in GoGalaxy 2

You can modify the cascading style sheets used by the client very easily. They are located here on my default 1.2.37 install: "C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\web\styles\client"
There are lots of resources for skinning the client available on the web. A good place to find inspiration is userstyles.org.

Just to show you how easy it is, I simply changed the background color, font family and size for the settings menu.
