GOG shit up the login with a reCAPTCHA. Means lgogdownloader can't login anymore unless GOG removes the forced reCAPTCHA on the initial login attempt.
CrisMotinha: Can someone please help me? I can't download my games from the website and the gog support told me to see the downloaders, and I still couldn't download with any of them (this is the third one I'm trying)...
The workaround is just what it said 'Login with browser and export cookies to "$HOME/.config/lgogdownloader/cookies.txt" So, login to the site in your browser and, while logged in, export your cookies (.gog.com, login.gog.com) to the file $HOME/.config/lgogdownloader/cookies.txt. Depends on what browser you use as to how you do that. Once you have a valid cookies.txt then lgogdownloader uses that to authenticate itself; no need to use --login.
Didn't test it, but you may only need a valid login.gog.com galaxy-login-al cookie for --login to work.
