GoG, if you are going to turn into Steam then why do we need you?

+1 <br /> The reason to buy games on GoG is to have offline installers with no hasle on present computer. <br /> Since GoG Downloader was available I almost never used anything else to obtain the games I bought. <br /> Please, keep it.

It made downloading games easy. It was the main reason I continued to purchase games on GOG. I guess at this point I don't really need to continue to purchase games on GOG. <br /> j

I have been here since the beginning and have purchased many GOG games. GOG DL is simple, easy, works perfectly and better than any other method GOG ever has made available. So, of course, get rid of it. Dumb. Get rid of Galaxy which I will NEVER, EVER use and bring back GOG Downloader. Please GOG, listen to your customers and bring back GOG DL!

I'd prefer the Downloader, as it only downloaded the items that changed. If the extras were unchanged, done. If the installer had not changed, it just ran the checksums, done. Everything was kept nice and tidy in it's own directory. Plus, after you started incorporating version numbers in the file name, I had "obsolete" versions in case I needed to roll back. Which I did on way too many occasions. <br /> <br /> If you won't bring it back, for pete's sake, start doing at least a half-ass job maintaining the changelogs so I don't have to download everything and then use a file sync program to figure out what changed.

Same here: For me it is impractical to download a 40GB+ game via browser. Purchased no game within Spring-Sale because of this! <br /> What the hell is so dangerous to add the GoG-Downlaoder? I don´t want to use Galaxy, beause there was a fast, reliable, data-protaction conform way to dl my games: GoG-Downloader! Please bring it back!

I'm in the same boat as others. my purchasing has also stopped since the downloader was removed. I'm not interested in running Galaxy, and feel it is against GOGs stated goals.

Bring the Gog downloader back! I've been using it for years, and no problems. It's a good in-between solution to make things easier to download without galaxy, and without having to tell your computer where to put the files! Fire the idiot who got rid of it!

While I still MUCH prefer the GOG downloader, I did find something else that will give the same functionality (able to pause/resume downloads and control download speed and hooks into all browsers via addons for ease of use) from downloading from the normal links in our libraries: Xtreme download manager <a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/xdman/" class="light_un" target="_blank">https://sourceforge.net/projects/xdman/</a> it is open source and doesn't have the malware most of them do these days. <br /> Give it a try guys. At least now I can download like I did and doesn't use Galaxy. :)

GOG: you guys may not believe this, but I've seriously not bought anything from this spring sale because the thought of having to download things by clicking on individual links makes me weary. I've used GOG Downloader to download my games for years. I _like_ having the local installers around. I've bought them. I want them. Please bring the downloader links back. There are games I want to buy.

So GOG finally turned evil. <br /> Like Humble went Steam-only on most games (even those available DRM-free elsewhere). <br /> Like Groupees now regularly sells porn, closes access to accounts and doesn't answer mails. <br /> <br /> Today I bought Witcher 3 - the 257th game. <br /> It comes with loads of extras that I now have to d/l one by one. <br /> Enjoy the money, GOG, it is the last you get from me. <br />

Please return the GOG downloader. It was so much FASTER than GOG Galaxy! I did tests just a couple of weeks ago and every time GOG Galaxy was about 3 or 4 times SLOWER. I don't care for GOG Galaxy. I appreciate having the option of GOG Galaxy and all the work GOG has done with it, but it is not what I am looking for.

As a purchaser of over 230+ games on GoG, the downloader was an invaluable tool. I and many others don't wish to use Galaxy. And as HereForTheBeer put it so well "Given that the Downloader itself was abandoned 6 years ago and that it STILL worked fine on the day functionality was removed, it doesn't seem like a tall hurdle to keep the Downloader links active." <br /> Please consider re-enabling the use of GoG Downloader as it was simple, convenient download manager that worked a treat. <br />

The Downloader is a bit of a godsend for someone who chooses not to use Galaxy - remember gOg, you've promised Galaxy will never be mandatory - and who has a crappy and/or slow internet connection. Disappointed that it has been removed, as it was a solid and simple tool for getting installer packages and patches. Given that the Downloader itself was abandoned 6 years ago and that it STILL worked fine on the day functionality was removed, it doesn't seem like a tall hurdle to keep the Downloader links active.

I'm going to anti-vote, out of principle. The software was discontinued 5 years ago. All of you should have made your peace during that time. It was even outright stated that there was no guarantee the links would continue working. <br /> <br /> And much like that discontinued gum you like finally going out of stock, so has this happened. And it won't be back in style. <br /> <br /> You see, chances are that GOG discovered some function, security hole, library discontinuation or bug so big that in order to keep it running they'd have to rewrite the whole lot. And why bother? Galaxy was made to replace it years ago and was the culmination of all their effort and progress. <br /> <br />

Don't kill my GOG Downloader! Sure there's Galaxy and downloading from the website, but the I still used the GOG Downloader? Why? <br /> <br /> Well, for one thing I could queue up a dozen or so games and it would grab each of them one by one without me having to monitor it. I could grab all the goodies for a game with a single-click, instead of downloading each PDF and ZIP separately. The GOG Downloader also helpfully sorted all the files for each game into their own folders. <br /> <br /> Neither Galaxy nor HTTP downloads offer me all these features. Its why I used it almost exclusively when I bought my games; it was the easiest way to get my offline installers so I could safely archive them to disk. Sure, I could use the other methods, but it adds extra work. Bring back the GOG Downloader! <br />

It saddens me that the GOG Downloader has been killed off (by removing the Download Links in the library). Like others, I was using it as a quick way to sync my offline library. Please bring it back. <br /> Some may say that you can still back up your offline copies with the Galaxy client, but there is a major drawback: The Galaxy client still does not support a "one-click" option to download the bonus content, as the GOG Downloader did. <br /> Second, with the GOG Downloader you could easily download multiple languages and platform editions of the installer at once, with Galaxy you have to filter, which is really cumbersome. <br /> Please bring it back or ad these features to the galaxy client at least.

For the records: I'm going to keep using tools like DownThemAll! or Free Download Manager. For no reason in the Universe, I'll use Galaxy: I've become your customer because you WERE different from Steam. Atm, perception you're giving us is making (little step, by little step) Galaxy the ONLY choice to mange our games, without problems: de facto, you seem a sort of copycat of Valve's site. Keep this route and I'm sure all of us, veteran customers, will say goodbye and will bring our money elsewere.

Just because you want to be "the one launcher to unite them all" doesn't mean you should take away choice from your customers. Might as well start shopping elsewhere now, big browser downloads are way to unstable for me.

"What HARM is the Downloader making for GOG?" That's easy. It's keeping users from being on Galaxy. Judging by GOG's actions, GOG do not want non-Galaxy customers. Presumably, they are hoping the extra clicks necessary to download by browser will cause people to be frustrated and just give in to using the conveeeeenient optional client.

What HARM is the Downloader making for GOG? I use it to queue and download all the installers once they're updated. Simple, quick and clean. Not interested in browser downloads (too much work) or using "other than download" clients such as Galaxy. (Basically, I want to keep my working IPod for listening my mp3s instead of your forced MacBook Air). I can't imagine GoG going broke for maintaining the Downloader, or at least letting it run. Further puchases (income for GOG) put on hold until convenience is given back.

When Galaxy was first introduced, GOG said that Galaxy was optional and that the Downloader might not be updated/maintained but it would always be available for use. I've never used Galaxy, don't want to use it. I buy my games (356 games since first joining GOG!). I download them for safe keeping. I use those downloads to install and play my games. I'm not interested in all the doo-dads of Galaxy. I prefer clean and simple. Now, it as major pain in the *** to have to download multiple individual files for a game, then move them into their respective folders on my external HDD. Ugh. Bring Downloader back. Stand by your promise.

I often used this program... It was very useful and I simply don't understand the choice to get rid of it... please change your mind, GOG!

This is what comes from letting a game Developer and Publisher get involved. High ideals get tossed out the window when the dollar blinkers come down.

So they talked themselves into getting rid of the GOG Downloader. What next? I've been in denial, and giving my support to GOG, but it seems clear to me now, that I have been a fool, and that this goes beyond Galaxy, and that it is the beginning of the end. Mark my words.

Pretty nice surge in wishes over the last day or so, coinciding with the apparent end of Downloader. Hope they reconsider their consumer-unfriendly decision.

What I see? GoG Downloader was ERASED from subpages od <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> TODAY... <br /> <br /> As I'm non-DRM user of DRM-free as announce daily by CD-Project - I NOT ACCEPT this fact! In this light, I do not accept ANY form of company misappropriation of the ideas it proclaims on a daily basis. For me, GOG Downloader is a BASIC form of use of shared / licensed, issued by CD-Projekt (in the context of paid access) content available to them. <br /> <br /> As a User of your products / content, I require you not to compromise the idea of ​​DRM-Free Software - or to mislead your customers on a daily basis! <br /> <br /> So I appeal to the persons responsible for this sphere of activity responsible for CD-Projekt to respond to the legitimacy of DISCLOSING the functionality - the KEY for me which is GOG Downloader, or enable this functionality so that I can use for my use the programs that were available thanks to the mentioned software. ..! <br /> <br /> I do not intend to use the advertised GoG Galaxy and the emerging GoG Galaxy 2.0 more than it is NECESSARY, applications that stand out from the wave of use of generations of smartphone morons ...! I see it this way ...! AND NO - I'm not going to apologize, I wasn't used to apologizing for telling the truth. I don't like GOG Galaxy. And I won't force myself to use something I don't like. <br /> <br /> No more than today I realized when I wanted to back up my purchased games on GoG GALAXY that there is NO gog downloader and page 404 appeared to me. You have deleted this functionality! Today or yesterday!

I only use the offline backup installer. I will never use galaxy. I don't know what gog downloader is, but I will vote yes in case it's the same thing as the <a href="http://gog.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">gog.com</a> websites ability to let you download offline installers. If I can't use the offline installer download, then I can never buy a game ever again, so this scares me.

I do not and will NEVER use Galaxy. I vote they keep the downloader. Apparently GoG votes for me to keep my money. Only one of us will get what we want.

PLEASE! DON'T ABANDON <a href="http://GOG.COM" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.COM</a> DOWNLOADER! -NOR NETHER- GOG GALAXY 1.2! PLEASE! <br /> <br /> I prefer and still use <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> Downloader for my Game Backup Copies. <br /> <br /> My internet is atrocious, it's so unreliable, downloads that are more than 4GB in size always fail the first time. <br /> <br /> And my internet-plan has a hard data-cap, I can spend THREE DAYS downloading a SINGLE GAME, only for it to fail after the 95% mark. and for my trouble I've flushed 1/4 of my monthly data down the toilet. <br /> <br /> FAILED AND CORRUPT DOWNLOADS ARE ACTUALLY COSTING ME MONEY! <br /> <br /> Not only that, but <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> Downloader is more secure & reliable than any web-browser AND it's also the fastest <br /> method. It's even faster than GOG Galaxy a majority of the time. <br /> <br /> AND on top of all that, I use <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> Downloader to verify ALL of my downloads, GOG Galaxy can't even do that. <br /> <br /> P.S. Every web-browser download that ever completed, ALWAYS had corrupt sectors or just whole blocks <br /> of data just missing. ( I Always double checked with WinMergeU. ) <br /> <br /> PLEASE! DON'T ABANDON <a href="http://GOG.COM" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.COM</a> DOWNLOADER! -NOR NETHER- GOG GALAXY 1.2! PLEASE!
