Easier way to add installed games.

At the moment only way to add Pre-galaxy installed games is to find the game in your library, click more, click manage and then finally click Import Folder. I found this very cumbersome, not user friendly and easy to miss. There should be an easier way to add games from the main menu like forexample when I click the "Scan and import folders" I should be able to add a specific exe file.

Or an other option like "Import installed games" could be added beneath the "Scan and import folders" option.

Yep, I have installed Galaxy recently and it only detected about a quarter of my installed games. Should be a simple, working process.

Galaxy has lost ALL my installed games, and once again it's because it updated! 99% of the time there is a problem when it updates! If I just had to point to the folders that would be one thing, but then Galaxy want's to verify every game, which takes hours if you have 100 games installed, like me!

came across this wishlist, i downloaded an installer earlier which still attempting to get gog galaxy to pick up the game folder. <br /> which has led me to deinstall-reinstall various times. <br /> now im attempting to install it to the gog galaxy folder and hopeing that works. <br /> which seems it didnt, last resort being the redownloading it via gog galaxy sadly, redownloading an game i just downloaded earlier. <br /> <br /> hopefully as time goes on adding games downloaded via the gog website becomes easier, as i usually prefer to just download them enmass and keep them backed up, v.s over time as slow net speeds.

I have tried importing the folder and also verify and repair. And it keeps downloading 10GB of the game. Are they all updates? I have the game installed last year and its 24.8GB. How many updates have there been since June 15 2015?

Got this problem. Would be great if I could add and verify game files like I can in steam. Adding a pre-installed game from a different HDD should be simple.

Easily done. Regedit ... Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\GOG.com\GalaxyClient\paths <br /> <br /> double click library ... set it to the games folder of your install <br /> <br /> for example, mine is E:\GOG Games\Games\ <br /> <br /> if Galaxy is running, exit galaxy, relaunch, and import away with some of the more annoying steps out of the way. You still have to scroll down to the correct folder, but, if your on a multi drive system, it's no longer quite a pain.

All GOG games default to the "GOG Games" folder anyway so this should be trivial. I'm in full support.

Shame this system still doesn't work correctly, Witcher 3 disc install, waiting near an hour for that. Install GOG add the installation folder. Files are verified, then GOG decides to install the files in its own folder as well. So now I am left with the option of uninstalling the disc version and potentially having to start the whole process again o_O

Very needed feature. A good way to do that could be an option to point at a folder and check all the gog games inside it. Most of my games are installed in some X:\GOG Games folder (with X as the name of the hdd) on 4 different hdd i added one after the other. So a "GOG Games" folder could be required and then all the stuff could be added automatically to my Galaxy library.

Had Witcher 3 installed on my SSD. Copied W3 over to a hard drive and reinstalled windows on said drive. After reinstalling Galaxy I moved Witcher back to .../GalaxyClient/Games and used the method above to discover game files. Let it work for a few minutes and I was good to go. This beta (!) client has features I missed from others (i.e. uplay) for years.

I had all my GOG games installed to my E drive with the exception of a handful of games. <br /> Sadly Galaxy only recognized 1 game: Same and Max hit the road. <br /> I had BS1 and Zeus installed on my E drive but it didn't recognize them.

Just move the gog games folder to a different drive, and use scan/import button, and enter the witcher 3 folder. the file scanning and verification took about 15min and the game worked just fine in windows 7.

Strongly agree that this is a must-have feature. I've installed Galaxy on 2-3 different computers/boot drives with GOG games present, and I can't recall that it's detected a single one. I have dozens of GOG games installed at any given time. This launcher is useless for anything but brand-new installs. <br />

I'm trying to add the Witcher 2, I can't add it with my CD key and my problem is that I can't even see the game in "My games" and the "Scan and Import folders" doesn't recognize it as well. <br /> Is there a way to make GOG Galaxy realize that the game could be added to my library. I can play the game just fine from the original Witcher 2 launcher.

I didn't even know they had this feature. I came here to add this as a request. I just tried the "scan and import folders" and it brought up ONE game out of 16 installed there. <br /> <br /> I'd love to see this feature working and more noticeable (maybe prompt new installs for this for one, but easy to find otherwise.)

Just want to add my voice to those making this request. Detecting your already-installed games really needs to (in order from least to most important): <br /> * Be easier to find (for anyone wondering it's in the menu that comes up when you click the plus sign next to the search bar in the upper left), <br /> * Run automatically on install by default, <br /> * And most importantly, ACTUALLY WORK. I just ran it and it found only one of over a dozen games sitting right in my default c:\GOG Games folder. That's ridiculous.

Downloaded GOG Galaxy to help with Patching Witcher 3. It can see the game however the play button is blanked out and i can tell it where to look as the import folder is greyed out also. Witcher 3 was installed pre-galaxy. Had to download and install patches manually. Cant even get it to check / verify files. Bit of a nightmare really. Makes life harder.

The "Scan and import folders" function does an incredibly poor job. Even though all my already-installed GOG games were in the same folder (and they were all recently installed with the modern installers), the "Scan and import folders" function only found 1 or 2 of them. I had to use the hard-to-find Import Folder function on each individual game it missed to get the rest in. This is surely a basic function and was a really bad first impression of GOG Galaxy.

When I first installed GOG Galaxy, I mistakenly installed several games I already have installed on my computer. I thought the program would be smart enough to quickly check if I had it installed already. <br /> <br /> (Am I wrong to think that a program can quickly check if something is already installed? Windows has a big list of programs and applications that I can find in the control panel; can't a program check to see if something is already installed, and where?) <br /> <br /> I was going to the GOG forums to complain about this lack of feature, when I found the topic that explained how to get Galaxy to do this. <br /> Seriously, this feature is NOT in an intuitive spot. I have to do some bending over backwards to get galaxy to see my already-installed games. <br /> <br /> When Galaxy is first installed, or I first connect my account, it should automatically scan for GOG games that I already have installed. If this isn't reasonably possible, then it should open up a window with instructions that explain how to get Galaxy to connect to my installed games. <br /> BECAUSE THE EXISTING METHOD IS NOT PRACTICAL.

I agree that is a tricky process. If you don't configure the client to "install" games in the same folder where your pre galaxy game is already installed when you import it you will have a copy of your "imported" game in the preconfigured install folder (i.e. C:gog games). So you will have to uninstall it manually in order to not waste hd space. I had imported "earth 2150: escape from blue planet" from c:games/earth2150 trilogy to c:games/earth2150 trilogy and it worked fine but i think that can be confusing and end up in a little mess. Imagine that you download a new gog game and you forgot to change accordingly the install directory...you can end up with someting like this : c:games/earth2150 trilogy/Some anpther gog game !

While we're at it, a drag-and-drop system that matches it to the games in your library. Maybe it could scan the folder for the .exes or something.

I think a "scan for games" option, and selecting a specific folder (which I already have pointed to for my installed games!) is the best option. There could be a confirmation button (a simple is this the game yes/no) to make sure games aren't overwritten accidentally.
