Er....does this mean I can't download anything on FSMods now?


What browser did you use? Did you try refreshing the page? Did you try with any other browser? As I said, I tried with Opera (10.53) and the download link worked fine. And just now I also tried with Firefox (3.6) , Chrome (5) and IE (8). They all were able to download the file from FreeSpaceMods.

I'm actually using Internet Explorer 8.

Still, it doesn't work.

It downloads "patch" but suddenly changes to a file hilariously called "no".  :wtf:

Are you using a download manager? If so, try downloading it without the download manager.  Also, out of curiosity if you are using a download manager what is its name?

The only reason why it would be sending you that picture is because it thinks you are coming from a hot link, and unfortunately not all download managers send the HTTP referrer so that the server "knows" that you are not hot-linking.

Failing that, try downloading it in IE8 (No Add-Ons) (you can find the link for "No Add-Ons" mode in your start menu > Accessories > System Tools). Or go and download Firefox or Chrome and try it with them.

Actually, I'm using BitComet. Is it really that unreliable?

Honestly, I don't know about BitComet in particular, but as a torrent client it has (err, at least had) a reputation has being a very poor peer (ie. it wouldn't share nicely) when used for torrenting (to the point that a large number of trackers have completely block it).  That being said, as far as a HTTP downloader I have no idea, but I explained previously, not all download managers work correctly and can even be abusive to the server so that the server itself blocks the client.

So, unless you have that bad of connection that you cannot download 15 MBs using the built-in download manager of IE, I would just try it directly.  Otherwise, try a different free download manager (this one I just tried in IE8, I know it works).

Thanks  :)

It worked with Free Download Manager.

One curious question: what does the Inferno Lucifer do in the campaign (given that it's significantly stronger than the original)? Or is it just a "supered" version of the old one to give the Lucy a more accurate stand in custom missions?

I don't know, as I have never played Inferno.  I would also suggest asking this question in a new thread (in this forum) because anyone that is qualified to answer would have given up on reading this thread long ago.
