I'm a bit puzzled by that. First you seem to be suggesting that the same delta patches that Galaxy users get(?) would somehow appear automatically also for people who want offline installers (as separate offline patches)... but then you suggest there would still be some kind of specific client you'd have to use in order to get them?
HereForTheBeer: I guess I'm a bit baffled in this: whatever mechanism is being used for Galaxy, it could probably be used in a stand-alone patch / update doohickey. So why isn't it? Can't there be a client-lite like an updated Downloader? Something smaller, simpler, and manual-er.
Would that "client-lite" delta-update only your installed GOG games, or would it provide offline update installers for your GOG game installers? If the latter, why would one need to use a client-lite for that purpose? I think the current complaint is that people who want to use e.g. their mere browser to get their GOG games, don't always get such patches.
I see the suggestion for "client-lite" problematic to GOG as it would introduce yet another option that GOG would have to support, on top of the existing options (Galaxy users, and people who want to download offline installers).
