There needs to be a refresh button for the games. I just bought a game on the browser and can´t seem to find a way to refresh my "All Games" library in GOG Galaxy.
Trying to install games in Galaxy getting a server problem?
I'm on Galaxy 1.2.64, and several of my games seem to have lost their titles. Crusader: No Regret, Descent 2, and Fallout in my library are displayed as product_title_[numbers]. The same thing happened when I installed Way of the Samurai 3, but it's only missing its name in my installed games list along the left side...

how do I get it running? Just loaded Wasteland 2 and it shows on my profile, but no idea how to proceed.
Thanks in advance!

helpi: ... the normal themes - dark and not dark - ..... there are dark themes for windows, a dark theme for chrome, firefox... etc..
TheTomasz: Galaxy 1.2.64 (or previous version 1.2.59) does not support changing themes, neither was it influenced by Windows 10 setting.

Could you post an issue on and attach screenshots visualizing the issue?
Dark Theme is ok now (with the winter sale...). Perhaps you can add a button to change the themes or background color? The color scheme can only be changed in the Community.
Why are some of my games in Galaxy 2 not got any sleeves? Just a blank square.
If you want some help with testing in Galaxy 2.0, let me know...because few people like me will not like it...cause it simply doesnt work with huge libraries...

(I tried G2.0 in summer...maybe you made few improvements since that time)

syncing was very slow overall but I had these major bugs:
1) launcher could not load my huge Steam library (11k+ games)...always crashed
2) W10 - Xbox games have not been loaded too (for example Age of Empires DE)
3) most of all what I hated, G2.0 deleted ALL GOG TAGS...what I cant understand at all, it is YOUR OWN function...

maybe you fixed some of these but I can offer some testing if you need help
Anyone else having troublw with Galaxy not 2.0. It's being very slow as of last couple of days. server troubles on some game installs .

Just checking. Probably real busy with the sale?

Why are my play buttons greyed out? How do I fix this?
i still dont get this crap client

how do you sort by buy date

how do you access 'offline' download page for each game?
Yeah, hi. I had bought KOTOR 2 (the Star Wars game) and I clicked on it in my downloads, and... nothing happened. Nothing popped up. What do I do? I have Windows 7. I'm pretty sure I could grab my system specs if somebody needs it.
GOG galaxy fails a lot, instead of wasting time with a version 2.0 that nobody asked for, they should have finished stabilizing their application.

It is not translated into several languages, it is closed and in the process manager it continues to work, the games do not run correctly.

It's amazing but Origin works better than this client.

My GOG Galaxy (not 2.0, the regular one) is running so slow that browsing shop is almost impossible. Not sure if that's caused by the recent update? Anyway I'll skip the winter sale for one simple reason... I don't want to wait a minute for the tool to respond for my click each time I'm trying to browse the games!
With version 1.2.64 if I go to store then click on an installed game in my library (on the left) one of my cores jumps to 100% for a good 8 seconds before the game is selected. Once that happens I can click on installed games no problem but if I go back to store and then click an installed game again I get the huge CPU spike and hangup.
low rated
Well my first day using GOG and my last. I came for a quick bit of old school games - I hit install and then find this new programme I did not choose to install pop up. Yep horrific DRM bloatwear called Galaxy. Not Heroes of Might and Magic III as I was expecting (see I told you I was after something old school. Sorry but I am not signing up to yet another service trying to harvest as much data and exercise as much control over me as possible. Frankly I want no part in you putting pointless programmes on my computer. So goodnight GOG I'd heard such good thing about you but you just didn't live up to that reputation.
