All the older Exile demo links are not working can we get them fixed please?


Recommended Posts

I just tried right now and downloading E3 worked fine for me, running Safari in Mac 10.2.

 

EDIT: In other words, it's something about you. Try downloading the other kind of file, or make sure that you're downloading for the right operating system (Mac/Windows), etc.

None of these links work, tried with IE, Firefox, CuteFTP, FlashFXP and Gozilla and there all dead.

I have tried with my Desktop PC and my Laptop PC and my Work PC and the damn links dont work!

 

So can we get the PC version the old Exile demo links working please.

 

Thanks

 

PS:

And before anyone else says they work and dont have proof... I'm call BS and call you a damn liar!

You show me a screenshot of the PC versions downloading and you can host the screenshot here free and link to it or show it in the post.

Checking the Exile forum section I see another has had this problem also.

I can e-mail you the demos of Exile 2 or 3. Exile 1 doesn't seem to be downloading properly.

 

These things get hosted elsewhere on the web. I'm going to do a search right now to see if Exile 1 is available somewhere else.

I've just e-mailed the files to you.

 

If anybody else is having same problems, I can e-mail you the files tomorrow. (I am at work now and I wouldn't want to try e-mailing these files over my home's modem connection.)

 

PS Somebody should probably tell Spidweb that their downloads don't work for some people.

I'm at work. I was worried the DL would finish before i could take a screenie, lol.

 

Anyway. I fail to see how an ftp would "work for some but not others" without the problem being at the client end, not the server end...

I tested at other sites and it seems the problem is on my end and ftp://ftp links don't work for me.

No firewall, no router and no settings on the pc that I know of that would cause this. IE6, Firefox, Cuteftp, Flashfxp and Gozilla all do not work for ftp links.

 

So I apologize and will post back if I solve whats causing this.

 

Bit Torrent works and so does HTTP links and I'm not 100% sure but I may or may not be able to login to FTP's servers. I will test this thou.

Seems closing the alg service was the cause of this problem.

So problem solved and I apologize again.

 

I keep a clean and tight ship on my pc and dont keep anything running thats not needed. I just realized closing the "Application Layer Gateway" service was causing ftp://ftp links and ftp's in general to not let me login or download from them... very weird and I'm still puzzled over this.

My dedicated T-3 line is only crimped by the fact that I use a hacked MITS Altair 8800 for all my internet communications. After some dedicated research, you will discover that I have no screen or keyboard, and have to enter all my text using switches. Blinking lights communicate the results back to me.

I have a cable connection from home that transmits around 100 Mbit/s (ie. 12.5 MB/s) in theory, in total. Partly due to the large number of users sharing it simultaneously, that usually works out to around 2.8-4 Mbit/s (350 to 500 K) for me.

 

Not much better than DSL, but much cheaper (3$ a month, 10GByte monthly transfer)

This is actually technical stuff!!

I have no cable, no DSL, no neighbors, no highways, and no hope of any changes. I could spend $100 a month for satellite connection, or just trust Ma Bell to keep me annoying the world for one more day.

I would also suggest he was joking. I would also suggest that anyone finding a MITS Altair 8800 in decent condition place it in a bank vault and start contacting brokers. They are rare and valuable, and shouldn't be hacked.

I believe one the lastest security patches caused this to happen. The last two times I updated, one of the critical updates seems to have caused this for me.
