I´m downloading now Outlast 2, the download size is 23 GB! My download speed is 124 kb/s! Is it possible that you can make the download size smaller, to 10 GB download size? The problem is, when i stop the download and i have 7,5 GB and shut down my computer, and i start the download later, the download starts from 7 GB, not 7,5 GB! Normally i should have download now 9 GB from 23 GB!

I hope it´s understandable what i mean, and sorry for my bad english!

UltraComboTV: Feature request. GOG Galaxy Forums.

It would be amazing if I could block out the 10 trolls who go thread to thread spewing nonesence, and dooshbaggery. Its great they have an opinion, and announce it on 45 threads a day, but it gets old.

Would be nice to enjoy the forum without them. Can we please get a block option to block users so we don't have to see them? If so, that would be fantastic.

Thanks for looking into it.
Amen

Please post your logs on http://mantis.gog.com according to instructions there. Our team is watching for new serious issues related to new releases there, and logs are crucial. :) Thank you!

Hi,

Our team have checked it, and it doesn't crash for us. We don't know what could cause the problems, especially that your PC is crashing, not the game only.

Could you please check if running this game without Galaxy running at the same time causes your PC to crash too? And after that, confirm again that running it through Galaxy crashes your PC?
Hi, I recently joined Galaxy and D/L Morrowind plus a few other older Bethesda games.
As you probably know, MW is a standalone single player game and does not require other players, I'm just wondering if
I will be on-line while playing it?

Sorry if that sounds a stupid question but I am not that familiar yet with Galaxy. Plus, I really am truly Ancient!

As long as you have Galaxy open , I guess you will be online. But the game to my knowledge does not require it.
Most games I have installed via Galaxy can also be played without it (started via Launcher) but then the gametime does not accumulate and I'm not sure if you can do achievments ( probably depends on the game )

Thankyou Kavalor. I'll use the Launcher.
Latest Galaxy crashes on the Full Throttle Remastered store page when browsing the media gallery. Only happens on FTR page, not for other games. Weird as hell.

PS: max 500kb attachment size? Really GOG?

It works fine here...

(version 1.2.17)
Re the OP these 2 points:
= IMPORT ALREADY INSTALLED GAMES TO GALAXY ==

1. For GOG games installed using installers from the last few months (so called Galaxy-compatible installers)
Click the Galaxy logo button on top of the sidebar and select "scan and import folders" - it will find all compatible games within that folder and add them to the Client.

2. For remaining GOG game INSTALLATIONS
Find the game in the Library (click on the image of the game), then click the More button and select "Manage Installation" -> "Import folder" and point the folder selector into the folder where that game is installed.


This is still hit and miss even though presumably GOG Galaxy is out of Beta?

Sort it out guys.....if you hope to compete with Steam you need to sort out this basic import functionality...

For example I downloaded Shogo from the website and had Galaxy open and started while I installed the game from the setup.exe file, Galaxy picked it up and added it automatically to my library which was cool.

Then I tried Kingpin - life of crime - same deal, downloaded from my library on the website, Galaxy open and started - game installed ok - not a peep out of Galaxy - tried point 1 - Game not found - Tried point 2 - selecting Kingpin default name and directory - game still not found? Really? It's there, look again.

Yeah, import installs only seems to partially work for me too.
Hi everyone,
I have some games that have unnoficial patches and mods installed, like Baldur's Gate 1, that has BGFixpack and the ddraw Fix installed, and I was wondering if it's safe to import these games' folders to Galaxy? I've have installed these games and their mods before I started using Galaxy, and I haven't imported them out of fear that GOG Galaxy may delete the mods/patches when updating those games.
