    Thanks, just add it to my Acount, I hope it's runs better than Saints Row 2, which I deleted some hours after I downloaded it..
    it was stuttering the whole time, but luckily I ditnt paid for it..
    Maybe if I get me a new PC in the far future I can play saints row 2 but at the moment it's unplayable..
    Mount and Blade sounds good: A Medieval Openworld, Fighting on the Horseback etc..
    And only 600 mb and It ditnt need a fast PC

    I'm a big fan of the mount and blade series. Naturally, I already own all of them. Worth playing.

    Do you know if there's some trick to download GWENT without Gog Galaxy ? I can't find in the specs if that client is required to play...

    It just downloaded "setup_gwent_1.2.9.5a_en.exe" for me which I assume is the installer. I'm not going to bother trying to actually install it to see if it works without Galaxy, the potential for headache is too great and I'm way too exhausted for hypothetical problems right now, sorry.

    No, it is Galaxy exclusive and has microtransactions, therefore needs the Galaxy DRM.
    It's a F2P game, so what did you expect?

    BTW: https://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_gremlins_inc_dlc_84440/page1
    Gog is abandoning the last (DRM-free) of their initial core principles too atm.

    I read on GOG that it is actually a renamed Galaxy installer.

    GWENT can only be played through Galaxy with a live server connection, it is DRM'ed. Not a good development in my book.

    ^ Yeah, ever since the insulting "We'll put Galaxy into all of the offline installers"-thread I've been shopping more at HB again, since it's mostly cheaper and more honest. It wasn't even a blue announcement thread, but rather testing the waters for how much of a shitstorm there'll be.
    The "Gremlins Inc." thread I posted above is also worth a read since it shows what is really happening there right now.

    Just tryed Mount and Blade (from the Free Game event on GOG )on my PC and it runs pretty decent, loading time is fast, but I need some time to get used to the game

    I also bought Brutal Legend on GOG today, but this is still downloading, im also hope this game works on my PC

    gog has released classis neo geo games and ive loaded them all (metal slug's and arcade packs, not the fighting pack) on the pandora using NEO.emu.
    The game installs will contain <game>.zip and neogeo.zip. Just copy these onto your sd card and browse with NEO.emu gui and play.
    (One side note the windows installer for metal slug did not have the zips, but the linux installer did.
    So if the game has a linux installer I checked it first and if not then i tried the windows installer)

    As some may have noticed,
    Fallout 3 GOTY
    Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate
    The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion GOTY


    have been released on GOG.
    Since it's the first DRM-free version of New Vegas ever, I bit the bullet and bought it although WinXP isn't officially supported (unlike the Steam version).
    Apparently, GOG's silly client is breaking XP compatibility, there is a workaround though for which - ironically enough - you'll need a steam_api.dll.
    https://www.gog.com/forum/general/release_fallout_new_vegas_ultimate_edition_1c381/post153
    According to a GOG Team Member, Fallout 3 and Oblivion are not affected.

    While not getting that it's about Galaxy and trying to get it to run on Linux instead, I found out, that the user adamhm has made a lot of scripts for perfectly working WINE wrappers for some games I would never have expected to run that flawlessly on Linux, including Fallout 3 GOTY, Oblivion GOTY, New Vegas, Mirror's Edge, Hitman 1 to 3, Witcher 1, etc...
    https://www.gog.com/mix/adamhms_linux_wine_wrappers

    You can also let it make a nice tar.gz or tar.xz archive for your backups for easy future installation on Linux via the command extension -gz or -xz like for example when it comes to New Vegas
    Code:
    ./falloutnv_wine.sh -xz
    Making the tar.xz of such a huge game took about 2h on my system but worked.

    New Vegas is now running with a very high framerate on high settings on my ancient system via Linux DRM-free and totally legal.
    I never expected to see the day.

    On this occasion, I also updated my WINE from the ancient version in MINT's standard repo to the current stable one with Winetricks via a PPA and now I don't even have to boot XP for my playthrough of "The Book of Unwritten Tales" anymore either.
    It didn't work via PlayOnLinux so I may get rid of that.

    Code:
    Installing the Recommended Stable Wine version (from PPA)
    
    In the terminal type the following to add the Wine PPA, update repositories, and install latest Wine &amp; Winetricks version:
    
    wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key &amp;&amp; sudo apt-key add Release.key &amp;&amp; sudo apt-add-repository -y https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ &amp;&amp; sudo apt update &amp;&amp; sudo apt install wine-devel winehq-devel winetricks
    
    or you could include the Wine 32-Bit Arch (Better support) and configuring winecfg (This should only be applied to new installations since it will move the existing Wine installation to a folder called winebck):
    
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 &amp;&amp; wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key &amp;&amp; sudo apt-key add Release.key &amp;&amp; sudo apt-add-repository -y https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ &amp;&amp; sudo apt update &amp;&amp; sudo apt install wine-devel winehq-devel winetricks &amp;&amp; mv ~/.wine ~/winebck &amp; export WINEARCH=win32 &amp;&amp; winecfg
    Source: https://askubuntu.com/questions/316025/how-to-install-and-configure-wine#316029

    Linux has just become way more fun again for me.
    I don't mind using the terminal if I just have to copypaste something. :D
