Is there a option somewhere in Galaxy 2 that allows you to see what DLC you have installed or owned for a particular game?

DazBoots: Is there a option somewhere in Galaxy 2 that allows you to see what DLC you have installed or owned for a particular game?
Yes, on the game's page at the button that looks like two sliders, to the left of the install / play button at the top of the screen, select Manage Installation > Configure... and then click on the Installation tab. See attached images.

Ah, thank you. It's easy when you know how. :)
You're welcome!
Is anyone else experiencing problems on checkout - credit card payment continuously failing?

Thanks

Thanks
I have used it frequently over the past few days including once this morning and it was working perfectly each time. You may have to check they haven't put a block on your card for what they think are suspicious transactions.

A quick question as I use GoG Forums for the first time:
Sometimes when I open GoG Galaxy the games I import in Galaxy just disappeared and need to import them again.
Is this a known problem?
Thank you.
Hi there,

In Galaxy, for some reason, I now see "Unknown Game" in my "Recently added" list. And there's alot of them unknown games on that list. :(

Same goes with "All games" list, shows unknown games and also DLC. Witch, if I remember correctly were not on that list before.

I haven't been around for 4-5 days, and it was all fine before, but now I comeback and ... :(
So weird:

So now, I right clicked on one of the "Unknown Game", then clicked "Install" and then canceled the installation, and now all the "Unknown Games" are gone and everything back to normal. :O

Galaxy is a mystery to me.....


All the best!
I think, I have gotten blind. I can't find the download link for galaxy on https://www.gog.com/galaxy or anywhere on this site.

Thanks. I click on the "Discover GOG Galaxy"-button, which links to "https://www.gog.com/galaxy". On that page I did not find any download link.

I think it should be somewhere near "GOG GALAXY 2.0 Open Beta is available for Windows and Mac. Please download the installer on your PC."
By all rules of webpage design, there should be a link right there (・_・ヾ. Either in that sentence, when you click on "windows", or a button underneath.
But I could find no download link on that site (@_@), tested with firefox and chromium. Search revealed 3 mentions of "download", but no link near them.

Do you have any scripts active that block something? There are two download links right on the Galaxy page:

Probably. It's exactly, where it should be.
But it happens on both Firefox AND Chrome. Have to look at my browser config then. Worried, I was going stupid.
Hy,

I don't want to use Galaxy.
But when I start a game, Galaxy starts automaticaly.

So, when I uninstall Galaxy, can't I start my GOG Games anymore?

To me, Galaxy is useless and I only want get rid of it.
How?

Thank you in andvace.
