Damn, I just booted up Descent 1 (after installing Descent Rebirth) and it's just as good as it ever was.  I still have to do a bit of tweaking to figure out how to get the gamepad controls how I like them, but with the patch it actually looks pretty good at 1080p and plays like a dream.

I have all these games in physical form. All I need is for them to add the games to the Reclaim Your Game system... come on, GOG...

We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. ;)

No wonder we have no time to play games!

All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

GOG Galaxy has been updated with advanced features such as pausing and resuming downloads!

You can also now search for friends for your client within the client instead of having to use the forums.

 

Gee this modern era, what will they think of next?

I could say the same thing about the GOG thread being on the first page.

What's even better is that the old GOG Downloader program did.

I guess they forgot how to add that capability to their programs for a while?

Wow, I can't believe pause and resume wasn't standard.  I quit Galaxy after 1 download because to do a backup, you had to re-DL the installer- the downloader didn't have to ....  Is this still a thing?

 

Oh well, glad to see it is improving.  I still love GoG and it is the only place I buy games besides Humble Bundles.


Whooaa this hall is dangerous

I still miss the custom download speed limit feature of the old downloader.

I've been trying out third party programs that can limit bandwidth usage by process but I feel like all programs that download a lot of data should have that built in.

All of these 8 GB witcher 3 patches can really slow down my crappy DSL.

Maybe they will add that feature back in sometime in the next few years.

To be fair, it took a long time for Steam to support bandwidth capping too. I think that was implemented in the last 2 years or so.

 

Not a good excuse though.

The last time I tried, I still couldn't download anything through Galaxy because it just kept telling me that even on a game that's only a few hundred megabytes I didn't have enough disk space on a drive with about 100 Gb free. I figured it might have been some kind of weird permissions issue but I've run it as administrator and done everything else I can think of. The only GOG game I have installed right now I ended up downloading with the GOG downloader for this reason. Galaxy is a bit of a pain in the ass to me because it can't even do the one basic thing that a client is supposed to do--download games. Oh well, back to Dragon Age. I don't have any of those issues with Origin.

FWIW, if you previously owned Fallout 1,2, and Tactics on GOG, those versions now show up in your library as "classic" versions. Interestingly, the new Bethesda releases don't come with the Foxhack goodies that the Interplay releases came with - soundtrack, Fallout bible, etc. They also don't seem to come with the Mac versions the original releases have. 

 

I can imagine the extras may be due to some remaining rights issue, but seems weird they wouldn't include the Mac binaries. 

 

Also, Arena and Daggerfall that come free with any purchase can also be picked up at elderscrolls.com for free with no purchase.

Chances of a Bethesda Humble have increased from 0% to 1%.

Thanks for the heads up.  Something to look forward to picking up (and then backlogging) in the next sale!

Just for the hell of it (and because work has been exceptionally tedious today) I downloaded the client on my work computer and tried downloading Chapter 1 of the Heroes Chronicles. It worked just fine. Ugh. That means I'm probably doing something wrong at home. Maybe I'll give it another shot later.
