It would be nice if you Egosoft guys made your game available through the GOG Connect program. I own all X games on Steam and I'd love to play them on GOG now that the latter offers manual control over updates (and even rollbacks). I always play heavily modded and my game and saves has been wrecked a few times by Steam's auto-updates; I know about no-steam executables but they're a pain to manage.

So yeah, if GOG allows you to make your games available on their platform to existing customers who own the relevant games on Steam it would be awesome. Their system is abuse-proof as Steam and GOG accounts link 1:1, and I don't think there's any cost for you.

GOG Connect was a time-limited offer by GOG that they ran at various times last year. We did participate in one round of it, and we'd be happy to do so again if asked, but right now they are not running the scheme.

Thanks CBJ, that's good to know, I'll be on the lookout for their next round. Hopefully GOG haven't dropped the program.

They are currently running it for the SaintsRow Series.

A quick plea for devs... If you do it again next time, please include dlc's too. My GOG copy is useless because the steam one has all of the DLC but they did not transfer with connect and i was left with only XR. So, i wont be playing that version...

I'd LOVE to get X3 games on my GOG account as well!

Weirdly enough X2 was on GOG Connect during the GOG Summer Sale (might still be for a few hours) but not X3. Not sure who decides what gets in there.
