And that's not even the largest game out there!
So what's a gamer to do when he can't download his game in one go? Fortunately there are ways around GOG's current limitations.
I'll document the method that worked for me here.
I'm using Firefox so that's what I'll use to illustrate the method here.
|The Firefox preferences window|
In Firefox Preferences, click on remove individual cookies under the Privacy tab. Then, type in "gog-al" in the search box (minus the quotes). That should show you the cookie we need for this to work.
|The value of the cookie we want is in the content field. Copy it to clipboard.|
Next comes the terminal. We'll be using wget for this.
~$ wget --no-cookies --header "Cookie: gog-al=paste_cookie_content_here" -c URL
Remember to replace URL with the download link from your GOG library and "paste_cookie_content_here" with the cookie you copied earlier from Firefox.
If your download gets interrupted halfway for whatever reason you can run the same command again and it will resume from where your download stopped.
