i havent looked at the code however gog should have no reason to take responsibility for the 3rd party apps the app is designed for freedom in mind meaning you know the risks of things you do with it and if you dont not there problem just like any other company out there its no different then microsoft changing setting on your pc to allow them to push a update
the 3rd party apps manaul or automatic both use offical apis of the features or apps they are adding so if anyone made there plugin malious then gog wouldnt have to do anything anyway because that means that the person making the plugin used say for example the steam api to malisiously attack customers of steam so steam would pursue that the tos of the platforms dont disallow these things they just disallow using the apis and intagrations being used for things that hurt there customers so its not really that big of a deal as if your smart enough anyway your pc has the measures to stop something like that from being done either by 2 step or some form auth that isnt just on that account i get security but what gog is giving isnt something that you can be picky like this its still in closed beta and people are already complaining about things like this it just makes me said because this is the direction we need to actually go to support the exact oppesite of stadia
Don't know about rest of the people here, but don't you think it is a little strange, that a company releases a software with a usp, but said company does not actually provide support for it ?
Of course there is no need for gog to take responsibility for stuff they do not make, but If you advertise Galaxy as the one place to go for all your gaming needs, you should at least provide official support for the biggest competitor on the market: Steam.And it does not matter in what state the software is, as gog never anncounced that they would take responsibility for (certain) integrations after official release
I personally don't care much about the whole topic as I use intergrations just for testing new versions, but it is still a odd thing to do, in my opinion.
morale of the story everything takes comprise if you cant protect yourself then dont use it if you cant use a computer well enough to know you shouldnt use something because it looks skecty then you shouldnt even be on the internet
Well no. Gog wants to address a audience as broad as possible (as most gamers nowadays, sadly, aren't very tech saavy), with the existence of the client itself already beeing a nod in that direction > the easier gogs customers are able to start playing games they bought the more likely it is they will buy again in the shop.
