Hey, if I grabbed this for free today, could I download it at a later date for free?

EDIT: Oh fuck am I not liking my experience with GoG so far. They don't double-check your password on their quick sign up so I had to basically change my password because of a typo, then as it turns out their shitty fucking downloader locks up on my computer if you ever enter the wrong password, which requires a restart of my computer. So I'm basically amusing myself by writing scathing comments when they come up with their log file form.

In answer to your question, Inkidu, yes.  Once it's on your account, it's yours for good.

So, all I had to do was "buy" it.

Grabbed it, thanks for the heads up Chris!

I do love me some GOG. That site is the reason I finally got to play Deus Ex, Arcanum, CTP II and others.

I did get it, apparently it either did not update the image or two megs is not crucial to the file integrity. It downloaded fine as far as I can tell, but they got about two good scathing comments for my trouble. >:|

(I've never used the proprietary "downloader" on GOG. Far as I can tell it's redundant.)

I've had nothing but good experiences with GOG's downloader. It doesn't work with all browsers, apparently, but that's it.

GoG's downloader is...serviceable, but I can't say I'm a fan.

It wouldn't let me download any way but their downloader unfortunately. I tried clicking the individual links to the various material and got an Error 403: Forbidden for my trouble. :\

I can't tell if that was my ISP or just there site, nor do I care. I will treat GoG warily from now on, especially if I ever decide to use money there. >:(
I was not happy with my first experience, not happy at all.

Unfortunate. GOG is a great site. I've bought plenty of games there.

It's puzzling. I use Firefox too and have never had the slightest problem with GOG.

Sounds to me like it's more an ISP issue as opposed to GoG.

Well, regardless of the ISP issue trying to download it without the downloader, their downloader had its own myriad of issues. :\
