GOG Connect: Get (some of) your Steam games on GOG
« on: Wednesday, June 01, 2016, 08:03:18 AM »
GOG Connect

Link your GOG and Steam accounts to unlock select Steam games on GOG! Current list appears to be:
Quote
    Bit.Trip Runner
    Braid
    Breach & Clear
    Breach & Clear: Deadline
    Broken Sword: Directors Cut
    FTL: Advanced Edition
    Galactic Civilizations III
    Incredible Advertures of Van Helsing
    Mount & Blade
    Project Zomboid
    Saints Row 2
    Shadowrun Returns
    Sherlock Holmes: Secret Of The Silver Earring
    The Witness
    To The Moon
    Trine Enhanced Edition
    Two Worlds
    Unreal Gold
    Unreal Tournament GOTY
    VVVVVV
    Witcher: Enhanced Edition
    Xenonauts

Note that many of the games only have a short window in which they can be redeemed, currently 5 days. So you have 5 days to link your accounts and unlock them. Which probably explains why they are getting slammed and I'm having a hard time getting the stuff to unlock.

EDIT: finally got my stuff to go through. 8 games totaling $99.92, now on my GOG account! Hooray!

Considering what it takes to get proper licensing and all sorts of behind-the-scenes procedures, this is an impressive feat!

I got 12 games added and 5 which I already owned on GOG.

I have Dawn of Discovery on Steam, which is the North American release of ANNO 1404, unfortunately it doesn't register that it is the same game.

UPDATE:
Today morning GOG Galaxy just detected that ANNO 1404 is in my Steam library and added it through GOG Connect! Awesome!

Sweet! I just got Metro 2033 Redux added!

This is a truly amazing initiative from GOG. At this rate I might consider switching my primary Digital platform to GOG.

Nice catch, Idol.

That's good for those who don't own that at either store-front.

So you know - SR2 PC is a horrible port.

And GOG version of SR2 has also capped to 30FPS by CDP. They did that b/c some things can go wonky (i.e. cut-scenes) at above 30FPS.
https://www.gog.com/forum/saints_row_series/saints_row_2_locked_at_30_fps

If you bother them (GOG Support), they will tell you how to uncap it; contact their support, as it says in the threads.
Looks like you use NVidia Inspector, bring up SR2 Profile, and you can force the cap off yourself there. Check the thread for more info.

Steam version is not handled + curated by CDP, so it's still capped at 60 FPS.
B/c of this, if you prefer 60FPS out-the-gate - you might want to add that to your Steam account.

Also, for SR2 PC - you might want Gentlemen of the Row Mod (for more content, if you want it) + especially Powertools Mods (so the game won't run at 2x's speed; so the game runs normal; & so it runs flat-out better).
Grab the mods here - http://idolninja.com/sr2.php
Or grab 'em off ModDB - http://www.moddb.com/games/saints-row-2

Here's a big Guide / FAQ on SR2 PC with info on issues, mods, and whatnot from SR2's Steam Power-User Forums for- http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1715922

I immediately noticed the 30 fps cap.  It looks quite primitive too, even considering the vintage.  Thanks for the info on modding and uncapping it.  It was pretty late when I got this running last night.  I just went to bed after messing around with the character creation and some running around the prison.  I'll see if I can get it to run and look better sometime later.

But hey, free is free.

Torchlight 1 and 2 added to GOG Connect and GOG Reclaim programs until Oct 14th:
https://www.gog.com/news/arpgs_up_to_75_claim_a_drmfree_copy_of_torchlight_i_ii

Basically, if you have them elsewhere, they have DRM.
This is so you can get DRM-FREE copies of the game from GOG.

If you have Torchlight 1, Torchlight 2, or both on Steam - go add them via GOG Connect:
https://www.gog.com/connect

If you have TL1, TL2, or both from Runic's web-site directly - add your key via GOG Reclaim here:
https://www.gog.com/reclaim
