Certainly something that should have been discussed and figured out internally *before* the game released. People who redeem on GoG are not B-series backers/gamers and shouldn't be made to wait longer than Steam users to get the same content.

I only want to add that one of the perks of GOG is it's lack of DRM. I'd rather no loopholes be found to circumvent this and no pressure put on them to start adopting it, or one of the biggest features of that platform will be gone.

Thank you for providing that link. It appears I've misjudged the situation. Their intent seems to be to release the DLC as executables only available to backer accounts on GOG. That's a perfectly good way to do it, just like Pillars of Eternity, and I might have known it'd be the way to go with it.

So, I suppose the big question is what's holding up the development of those executables, and it appears to be because some outside group is responsible for developing them. That's a little frustrating, but what can ya do?

Appreciate it! Will this be added to our GOG account soon? It's always more convenient for it to be downloaded automatically than to have to seek it out. At any rate, glad to see this little bonus released, and thank you again.

Could you please elaborate which folder should be provided to this application as parameter if using the macOS GoG version?

My Torment installation is in:
/Applications/GoG/Torment\ Tides\ of\ Numenera.app

I've tried these folders and all resulted in an error message:
/Applications/GoG
/Applications/GoG/Torment\ Tides\ of\ Numenera.app
/Applications/GoG/Torment\ Tides\ of\ Numenera.app/Contents

Hmm. Can you try dragging the "Torment Tides of Numenera.app" folder to your Terminal? That will show the correct path for you.

Alternatively, you can drop the tool into the "Torment Tides of Numenera.app" folder, navigate to that location in your Terminal, and run the tool with "./" as the parameter.

If you can let us know what error you are running into, that would also be useful.

I am wondering about same thing too :S Why it's not coming as GOG installer for our accounts ?

EDIT:

Patch file is only creating those files in their respective directories

outfits_enabled.txt
TidesOfNumenera_Data\StreamingAssets\data\dlc\2ea7378e-99a1-45cf-befb-de30a578107c
TidesOfNumenera_Data\StreamingAssets\data\dlc\3b5b5a48-59ef-40a7-abbd-4a3301d9a99f
TidesOfNumenera_Data\StreamingAssets\data\dlc\4b8e4b08-6144-442c-915d-514666669bb8
TidesOfNumenera_Data\StreamingAssets\data\dlc\854dbcf1-8376-4e60-8e99-a3beea7b2ea0

And all of those files are pure text files . So I can't see any reason for backer portal specific installer .

GOG backers need to get it as GOG installer .

Running from within the "Torment Tides of Numenera.app" folder does not work for me:

Please see the readme.txt for more information.

Error: Can not find Torment: Tides of Numenera. Make sure you run this program inside of the Torment installation folder.

Some versions of OSX will require you to run this program from a Terminal and pass the location of the Torment installation folder as a command line argument.

Sorry for reviving this thread, but have you actually tested this with the macOS version from GoG?

After receiving an update from GoG today, I decided to try once again, but no matter which directory I try, the installer will always complain that he cannot find Tides of Numenera. This is an exercise in frustration...

Well, thanks for no response...

Anyway, tried again with the latest patch and a freshly downloaded BackerOutfitTool, to no avail. Once again I tried with all the folders mentioned above and it always fails with 'Can not find Torment: Tides of Numenera'.

Why are no GOG keys available for the backer outfits yet? Game's been out for how long now? And why are they trying to force DRM on GOG when I and many other backed specifically and ONLY based on the understanding that we wouldn't have to deal with any DRM?
