Portable Version

A portable version of the client would be appreciated, if possible/feasible. That is, one which doesn't depend directly upon the system registry and can be moved around at will without requiring a reinstall. I know it will only ever be semi-portable because of its dependency on other system components, but as long as the client directory itself can be moved around (and will be unaffected by an OS reinstall, for instance) I'll be happy.

If you make games that can be played off portable storage then why not a portable client to go with it.

#bump #voteup <br /> <br /> I am very interested in this too. Please 'GOG' - make it possible ;) <br /> <br /> @epchain <br /> I've created several library folders on a SSD and a second HDD with the help of Steam itself. There wasn't any need of 'tweaking libraryfolders.vdf'. Just wonder myself ;)

I also would like to have portable client. Recently I made Steam client "portable" in some way: <br /> 1. Install Steam client <br /> 2. Copy it's files to another place <br /> 3. Uninstall it <br /> 4. Launch it, and Steam client will offer to install it's service using admin rights. <br /> 5. I then can install service and lower access level to LocalService and it's still working well. <br /> 6. Finally, I can move Steam Games library folder on the same drive by making folder with 'steamapps' and 'steam.dll' and tweaking 'libraryfolders.vdf' <br /> That's some strange way, but it's usable, satisfies my needs and doesn't need admin rights to run. I tried to make something alike with GOG client and it didn'd work. GOG always wants admin rights and still doesn't start once granted them. So I add my vote for properly implemented portable GOG client.

Yes, very much this. I'd start using GOG Galaxy client in an instant if this ever was implemented. <br /> <br /> No executable setup or msi installers, just extractable zipped binaries. <br /> The application itself should also be completely independent from the operating system, that means no touching the registry, storing settings in its own folder, no writing to appdata or other user folders, and no registration on application uninstall list, start menu or any other system locations. <br /> <br /> Suporting relative paths to game folder would also be great. I understand installing third party games can't be guaranteed to respect portability and may require breaking these rules, but as long as the client itself and the downloaded content is kept separate from the OS it will be fine. <br /> <br /> Portable GOG Galxy along with allowing external games being added to the library would make this the ultimate game launcher, in the vein of Launchbox.

PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS!!!! <br /> You can run most applications and games and games "portable". <br /> BUT they are not 100% (like those in portable apps and applications that are truly build to be portable). <br /> <br /> A true portable app does NOT alter: <br /> - OS folder(s): Appdata, ProgData,.... <br /> - Registry. <br /> -... <br /> <br /> Like I said earlier, many applications can run "portable" but once launched it alters system folders and/or registry. This goes with steam for example, it modify's: <br /> - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve <br /> - C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Steam <br /> - ... <br /> <br /> A true portable application is joy to manage, just copy the folder to another machine to back it up or just copy the folder to run galaxy on another machine without altering system components. Another very welcome thing is if portable apps are "installed" on another drive an reinstall of the OS doesn't mean you have to install and reconfigure the portable application. <br /> <br /> Thanks

+1 <br /> please, make GOG Galaxy like Steam. <br /> After a format he works without reinstall (and I can backup steam folder to an external drive). <br /> THANKS!

With steam you don't even have to reinstall if it's on a separate drive from your system. Just launch the exe and it will be good to go. Even self updates if it needs to.

For all the Dosbox game it should be easy. I have my own portable library using d-fend. But having Galaxy doing this for me would be even better.

Yeah, I like it how Steam has that solved. I have my Steam client and games on D:, system on C: and when I install my system from scratch, I just install Steam into the same location as I have before and all the games instantly appear in it. They still go through first time setup wizard which is a great behavior (so it installs all the missing redistributables) and then it launches. I have like over 500GB of games installed in Steam, re-downloading them on every OS reinstall would be just maaaaad. But with their system, it's just a matter of downloading Steam client which takes few seconds to download. <br /> <br /> I know Galaxy has "scan folder" feature but I frankly find it a bit clumsy way of adding games to Galaxy.

This would be good. Games could be installed in a subfolder of the "GOGgalaxyportable" folder, this way the launcher and games collection could easily be ran from/stored on an external hard disk or USB. DOSbox/old games should be easy enough to run from relative path. I imagine there'd be issues with newer games that might need to install directx ,physX or other libraries.. galaxy would have to do a check on game launch
