Smiling Spectre Not confirmed. Utopia works for me. Random link too. Maybe self-fixed already.

What a wonderful engine we have.

It was me, because apostrophes in names kills any such game in screenshot contest, and so far didn't affect anything... Yes, I never checked _downloads_, and wasn't aware that it tied to the english game name.

I guess, it's simpler to _remove_ apostrophes from the game files than guess which ones I destroyed. Alternatively, you can seek such games (looking on files with apostrophes) and fix names back, of course.

Ah, you did it already? Thank you.

Fun fact: I did it publicly, about 5 years ago, mostly. And added maybe pair of missed games in the last year. Ah, well.

Japo Wow Horseman, long time, dropping by?

Indeed it's a known issue that all translators and updaters must be aware of. If the names had to be changed it should have been discussed in the staff forum.

The Fifth Horseman I've found out why - the file names on the server must match the game title on site.
Some enterprising soul removed apostrophes from the titles on the site, so it was trying to download a file named Montezumas Return rather than Montezuma's Return.
Same for every other game that had an apostrophe in the title.

I have taken steps to fix this for the affected games but it's possible that whoever, whenever did this has caused similar havoc with other games.

The following downloads should now work:
Dragon's Breath (aka Dragon Lord)
Dragon's Breath
Dragon's Lair - Escape from Singe's Castle
Fool's Errand, The
Maker's Matchup
Mario's Game Gallery
Montezuma's Return
Montezuma's Revenge
Motocross (aka Suzuki's RM250 Motocross)
Nobunaga's Ambition II
Nobunaga's Ambition
Pharaoh's Tomb
Ping & Kooky's Cuckoo Zoo
Quarky & Quaysoo's Turbo Science
Scooter's Magic Castle
Snoopy's Game Club

Mystvan I believe that the download link for Montezumas Revenge is also broken. *shrug*

chris_doom_k. Montezuma's Return link is dead. Recently i noticed another one but i didn't take a note. Anyway, if i find another one, i'll post it here.

Mystvan At least, Abovo, the One Above All the Admins, is interested in keeping the site functional, although minimally and below our expectations...

kemo to be fair... I wonder if they are seeing our posts calling them out for unrelated topics??? Either way, at least it is a step in the right direction.
