Hi all, I made this little script fot the GOG game Balls of Steel, an old and classic Pinball. As far as my testings went I didn't find any problem. Please report any issue regarding this script.

Looks fine!
One thing you can simplify: you can replace the lines 33 to 38 by
POL_Call POL_GoG_install

It will take care of any adjustments needed to run GOG installers (above .pdf extension association, but also install gdiplus, needed for installers v2), and then run the $POL_GoG_location installer, all by itself.
Beside simplification, the other benefit is that if their installers need some more adjustments, it only needs to be done once, in POL_GoG_install function...

After that small change, feel free to submit the script for inclusion to the official repository ("Supported softwares" link, then "New installer"; And after script sending "Request signing" for validation).
Ah, I may also need to 22x22 PNG version of the game icon for display in script lists (both in PlayOnLinux and in the website).

You forgot to ask for signing, but that's ok, I found the script and it's validated now ;)
