foxworks: Thanks, I'll take a look into it. Last I saw it was just a file checker but I guess Timboli's expanded on it?

GameRacer: Yes, he is (iirc) adding things like quick and easy file downloads and other features. I believe you will need to install the gogrepo code or files or whatnot along with his program, but it will seemingly be very easy for some who liked & desired the old GOG DLer's functionality.

foxworks: Another reason to offload Galaxy, let's take Witcher 3 for example. Galaxy wanted to install the Steam version rather than GOG's version from the GOG bookmark. My blood is boiling. Apologies for my rambling.

GameRacer: Not a problem.

As for that issue, all I can say is: well at least it's not as bad as GOG essentially forcing everyone's old galaxy versions to update to 2.0....to me that was one of the sneakiest things they've ever done.
I appreciate it. I'll start thumbing through the threads and amassing the files for "the great download" :D

No biggie. BTW the thread for Timboli's program is in post 813 here....best of luck to ya. :)

foxworks: Apologies for dredging this thread up. However, seeing as the downloader was a useful tool and we're now expected to use Galaxy for all our download needs, I gave it a chance and installed it. Mostly it just sat there until I upgraded my external storage to grab the remaining drm-free installers - only to find out you cannot sort by purchase date. I thought something so basic was built in and maybe I was overlooking it. Doing some digging I see this feature was omitted in 2.0. I guess I'll be removing Galaxy. FML
Just FYI: They did not omit any features - they redesigned 2.0 from scratch which imo was not the best decision they did. They focused on the integration feature (which basically is their biggest asset when it comes to galaxy 2.0) and neglected several of the basic features. However they added most of them with the last few updates. So chances are good that you will get this sort option added in the future as well. I know that many have already requested it.

Also: Timboli's tool is not a replacement for the GOG Downloader (he said so himself) but it might become an alternative to Galaxy-Downloads when it is finished.

Actually with all the work he's putting into it and the features, i'd say it's less "might" and more "will most likely"(or "will")....when it's finished, that is.

==========================

For those who want to show GOG their displeasure at removing the GOG DLer: (Yeah, it likely won't bring it back at this point & Timboli seems to be hard at work on a replacement that'll make bringing it back likely unnecessary for a good number of people....still, can't hurt to show your displeasure at the old DLer's removal with a vote)

(The link to the wishlist is in the post above this post, if anyone wants to vote and let GOG know your stance on the matter)

-=====================================- (It is appropriate for "sending the GOG DLer off" and it's a song which illustrates some of my thoughts on the topic[and hanging onto it so much] as well)

1:08 says it best, I think:

"Once I rose above the noise and confusion...just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion....I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high"

"Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man....though my mind could think I still was a mad man. I hear the voices when i'm dreaming....I can hear them say..."

*Start of chorus*
