Publish Galaxy protocol specification

You planned to publish Galaxy protocol spec in the past, to allow easier creation of community clients. With Galaxy approaching the release, it's a good time to do it.

I think this will never happen, since it contradicts the business model of Galaxy client - which is advertising games withing the client.

I can think of a whole bunch of useful apps I could dev against a published GOG API. Given how open Galaxy already is compared to other clients this would be awesome to see.

I see what you mean. It's in the sense of protocol handler. I.e. an URI that has some string that you want some associated application to handle (like Galaxy client or whatever). That's a useful idea indeed.

Yeah I get you. Although it is a protocol in a way. Part of where I am coming from, is what valve calls the steam browser protocol: <a href="https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Steam_browser_protocol" class="light_un" target="_blank">https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Steam_browser_protocol</a> <br /> <br /> I use that in my own custom client, to browse and sort my games (from steam or elsewhere) together in one place, and then launch the steam games from there as well. <br /> <br /> I've actually reverse engineered some of the gog api for the networking stuff, but I am missing a way to play the games. I'd obviously love to have a more open version of the web api, so I will know when gog breaks my stuff how to fix it. I'll start a wishlist item about externally interacting with the client. <br /> <br /> Added here: <a href="http://www.gog.com/wishlist/galaxy/provide_or_document_command_line_options_for_galaxy_or_through_some_other_method_enable_other_programs_to_control_the_galaxy_client" class="light_un" target="_blank">http://www.gog.com/wishlist/galaxy/provide_or_document_command_line_options_for_galaxy_or_through_some_other_method_enable_other_programs_to_control_the_galaxy_client</a>

I'd call it client functionality then. By protocol here I mean a set of communication rules between the client and server. I.e. in this sense: <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communications_protocol" class="light_un" target="_blank"><br /> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communications_protocol</a>

Maybe it belongs in a different wishlist item... I just want to be able to trigger, from another program, the same effect as clicking the play button for a specific game in the galaxy client. It's about the client protocol rather than the server protocol.

Or something like gathering behavioral stats? Is that also done in Galaxy? I know Steam does that. But I'd expect Galaxy to be more privacy respectful.

@saluk: What I mean is that playing can be managed by the client in any way the client wants, and it does not depend on the protocol that's used to communicate with the GOG Galaxy server. Unless what you mean is multiplayer libraries of Galaxy.

With steam I just point my launcher to <a href="steam://playgame/id" class="light_un" target="_blank">steam://playgame/id</a> and it does the magic. I would be happy with either a web launch or a command line option (Gog <a href="http://Galaxy.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">Galaxy.com</a> -launch id)

Playing/download are the most important for me, as I have an external launcher and it would be great to just click "download", and then "play" from there. I like to run my steam/gog/humble/whatever games from a single interface. Currently, I can do a search and find the exe to launch manually - but in galaxy world this will mean missing out on galaxy stats tracking and other components.

I'd say incremental downloading / updating / patching / rollback related parts of the protocol are the most valuable (at least to me). Playing is really not dependent on the protocol. Unless we are talking about having an open implementation of multiplayer parts of Galaxy libraries.

Compared to the overly popular desire for open-sourcing the Galaxy client, i find this request/wish much more valuable and meaningful -- if you don't trust the Galaxy client you could simply write your own :)

I would pay money for this. The most important things I would need are: <br /> <br /> install_game(id) <br /> uninstall_game(id) <br /> play_game(id) <br /> <br /> and maybe: <br /> stop_game(id) <br /> account_games()-&gt;id list <br /> game_info(id)-&gt;name, install folder, etc <br /> <br /> (account_games and game_info I can generate by walking the gog_games folders and collecting the json files, but having a standard way at that information might be better, though account_games would need to also get games that are not yet installed...)

Galaxy admins closed the bug with this comment: <br /> <br /> &gt; We are closing all feature requests, as we have launched our new <br /> &gt; community powered feature wishlist at <a href="http://www.gog.com/wishlist" class="light_un" target="_blank">http://www.gog.com/wishlist</a> <br /> &gt; /galaxy . Please submit your feature requests there. <br /> <br /> Let's see if they'll ever comment here and it's not a brush off move.

Beta can mean it's already close to final. Otherwise it's usually not called beta.
