    Hmmm, I don't know. I don't think I have an adblocker in any of my browsers and it didn't work on any. (I use Firefox mostly though.)

    Have you checked to see if you have an ad blocker installed? It might be interfering with the site.

    That's a plugin, right?
    If so, it isn't displayed in about:plugins

    I use Firefox on Windows 7 with adblock and it still works for me. Either they fixed it, or the problem is on your end sadly.

    It could be ad blockers though. Have you considered that?

    How do I check whether I have ad blocker on or not? I typed "about : plugins" (without spaces and quotation marks, of course) on the address line of my browser and none of the plugins displayed is an ad blocker.

    I hadn't, but I think we need to think about whether or not it's ad blockers at this point.

    It should be fixed now, or at least downloads should now work for most people who were having issues. OTOH, if you were able to download stuff just fine, I might have some bad news for you...

    A part of it, yeah. There was a flash ad there that was supposed to reveal the download link as soon as it was done playing. If the ad blocker worked correctly, it wouldn't load and the download link wouldn't show up.

    There was another issue with the leeching protection system, TBH I'm not sure how any downloads got done with it broken like that.

    The ad is gone for now and I underped the other thing, so things should work fine now. Also the download speed should be up to around 1MB/s now.

    The_Bob - that's great news, any idea of when the downloads will be updated with the new/updated content?

    There's new stuff? Someone get me a list and I'll put it in the download section.

    High resolution patch https://www.terra-arcanum.com/forums/index.php?posts/271891/

    Modpack with 6 mods, you'll need to remove some of the modules that are in the download's section since this pack contains some of them and some of the mods need to be fixed to remove the slowdowns/bugs (you need to write a warning about this, it's the same thing that happens with some mods posted here in the forum) https://megagames.com/mods/arcanum-custom-arcanum-mods

    And thank you for finally fixing the problem with the downloads.

    The downloads are still down for me and the other people on our Discord. No link/token is being generated.

    I tried disabling my ad blocker, but it doesn't seem to be the problem. Is it Flash? Flash is dead and disabled in many modern browsers, don't do that.
