Foiled: Can you send your logs to http://mantis.gog.com? Attaching a screenshot to the bug report would help too.

Thanks!

No need. Today I logged in again, and everything is OK.

For anyone who's interested in monitoring the issue: http://mantis.gog.com/view.php?id=5344

Logs are of no help here. We'll do a fix for it soon.

Thank you for reporting this. :)
Hey,

we have released small update for Galaxy.

It contains small fix for networking stability in multiplayer games.
My GOG updater always fails to update. It appears to be having a permission issue, or is calling on a deprecated version of ZIP. Although, not sure how it'd be a permission issue as it's located in Shared, and all the folders are set to 777... I'm running macOS Sierra 10.12.6.

So this might be a somewhat strange question but where are the window dimensions for Galaxy stored (as in the exact width, length, x, and y coordinates on the screen)? This used to be in the registry entry but I can't find them there anymore.

There is a ton of stuff in: C:\ProgramData\GOG.com\Galaxy could it be there?
I have a weird input delay problem since the latest Grim Dawn patch when the Galaxy overlay activated (not opened ingame!):

Can anyone take a loo at this please?
How do I stop the client from auto updating on launch?
After this last update, Galaxy crashes.
I start it up and it says 'galaxyclient helper' has stopped working.

This update made galaxy unstable. Please revert back to the previous build :(
It would be really great if Galaxy had an option to minimize the Galaxy Client upon launching a game, freeing up some ram usage for tablets and low end computers like the GPD Win.

Backups and Goodies (under the MORE) button, seems to default to Russian language now. Anyone else seeing this? I tested with two games and got the same behaviour.
For some odd reason some of the games I have installed via GC are all coming out small. I can get the DOS games larger via the dosbox[Game].conf settings, but the Windows games I need help with as there doesn't seem to be any resolution settings for them. These games are also small if started from Windows Explorer.
Hey,

we have released GOG Galaxy 1.2.26.

It contains another bugfix for network stability in multiplayer games and also for notifications not appearing in some cases.

Enjoy your online games :)

Could you please reply to my question?

How do I stop the client from auto updating on launch?

Psykopat89: How do I stop the client from auto updating on launch?
1) You shouldn't really stop it from checking for updates. Quite curious as to why you'd want to do this.
2) Run the client with the /runwithoutupdating flag. But you really should be letting it check for updates.
