What does not
The GalaxyClientHelper.exe tends to crash on exit.
GOG Galaxy 220.127.116.11 runs quite well but tends to crash when downloading games around 4GB in size or larger. Fortunately, it keeps track of what was downloaded so once a given game is downloaded, it will run fine in the background.
What was not tested
GOG Galaxy in Wine Development 2.3.
Wine version used for testing is Wine Staging 2.3 since Wine Development does not support running GOG Galaxy at this time. Winetricks needed: vcrun2015 Wine settings: Wine needs to be set to Windows 7 mode as GOG Galaxy does not support Windows XP. Another thing to note is that previous installations of GOG Galaxy required "winetricks corefonts" but this appears to be no longer necessary. Also, running "winetricks corefonts" in the prefix where GOG Galaxy is installed tends to italicize the text in the community forums.
