EDIT: i updated my script to update the cache files remove any unwanted games. https://gist.github.com/maluramichael/31dc56cfc28bb65a2e8157319f6b5d39

Is it possible to skip certain games? I would like to skip chernobylite and cyberpunk because they are huge. Right now i run this script to download my games.

Sude: Only generation 2 builds are supported. GOG hasn't updated many older games to generation 2 builds yet. So expect to see "Only generation 2 builds are supported currently" error message a lot when testing this.
I just got this error for newly released Skyrim Anniversary edition (game id 1801825368):

> Only generation 2 builds are supported currently

It can't be they are using the old generation build. Did they make a new one may be (generation 3)?

Somehow it worked fine for special edition of the game (id 1711230643) which includes less addons.

Hello Sude, once again, thanks for the work with this tool.
I've been using my distribution repository lgogdownloader version and yours for testing and I couldn't find a way to uninstall your version after it's built from source, so I just manually deleted the files.

How can I uninstall it after building it from source? Thanks and sorry if it's a dumb question. :)

You can use regex to filter certain games
See perl lookaround assertions
Especially the negative lookahead (?!pattern)

For example this excludes everything that contains chernobylite or cyberpunk anywhere in the name
--game '^(?!.*(chernobylite|cyberpunk).*).*$'

According to gogdb Anniversary Edition seems to be handled as DLC for Special Edition and doesn't actually have any builds
https://www.gogdb.org/product/1801825368#builds
SE shows AE as a product included in build manifest
https://www.gogdb.org/product/1711230643/build/55846306920288567

Therefore installing SE with --galaxy-install will install AE if user owns AE at the moment because --galaxy-install doesn't filter DLCs currently
I'll have to add support for excluding DLCs to --galaxy-install
It should be just a few lines of code I think. I'll try to get it done during the weekend after I've reviewed the pull request to add cloud save support.

CMake doesn't provide "make uninstall" target so you have to manually delete the files.
However CMake does generate install_manifest.txt file in the build directory
You can use install_manifest.txt to check which files to delete or automate it using xargs
xargs rm < install_manifest.txt

Big thanks to loki-47-6F-64 for the pull request.

626aa68 Galaxy: Fix MojoSetup hack for files that have missing XML data
Try to get file size using Content-Length header if XML data is missing

211a0a8 Galaxy: Add initial support for ignoring DLCs
Adds support to ignore all DLCs when installing game with --galaxy-install
Either --exclude dlcs or make sure you don't --include dlcs
Eventually I'd like users to be able to choose which DLCs to ignore instead of this being all or nothing but that will require some bigger changes

With GOG embracing DRM now, backing up my entire catalogue, properly, suddenly became a lot more important. Thank you for this script, it's fantastic. I'm now looking into more storage options as 500GB free probably won't cut it.

Why must everything good die? :(

aam i correct that links are missing?
Is it possible to do a dry run or test run, to check how much harddisk space it would require to download my entire library?
