Good day to all, I wonder if any of you can help me.
I would like to know if there is a way to blacklist a game from download on LGOGDownloader, The reason eing is that when the Game of the year edition of The Witcher 3 came out I already had both the DLC's and the Game of the year edition just appeared out of nowhere in my library. But because I use LGOGDownloader to download and update my whole library (just over 100 games and growing) I want to be able to blacklist normal The Witcher 3 but download the Game Of The Year version (without it redownloading more than 50 gb's of useless crap that has been downloaded in the other edition.
You can hide the game on your game shelf and lgogdownloader will ignore it or you can blacklist all the files for the game in ~/.config/lgogdownloader/blacklist.txt
I recommend hiding the game on your game shelf so lgogdownloader doesn't even try to get details for it.
I'm not sure what the DLC list
exactly is used for (to overrule GOG's DLC count?). But broken_sword_4 probably could be added to that list too as the soundtrack has been separated from it like for broken_sword_directors_cut.
Yes it's used to override GOG's dlc count because GOG reports wrong dlc count information for pretty much every game and thus the info can't be trusted.
The list is probably missing more games with DLC because I haven't updated it for a while now. And because magog is working in legacy mode it is going to mean that for newer games I need to do even more manual work to figure out which game actually has dlc.
I wish GOG would fix the dlc count info. DLC count worked at one point which is why I started using it in the first place to speed up getting game details but then GOG broke it like less than a month later and never fixed it. I've reported it to support a couple of times and mentioned it to GOG staff in some threads to but it seems like it's just never going to get fixed.
