The no reply:
The owner is enjoying a goood vecation away from any computer, so that's the reason noone has answerd you.

The other issue:
What browser are you using?
Any downloadmanager installed?

Also check your internet settings. Perhaps you have something set that disables certain settings required to view such pages.

Well Abandonia is not hosting DOSBox - there's only a link to it on our site, so if there's something wrong with the DOSBox site we can't really help you...
The World of Xeen download works fine (just tried it), so there's gotta be something at your end. Do you use any download programes (for faster downloads, resuming broken links,...)? If so you should turn that off.

download managers whould work actually
if it happends again could you post the time (and timezone) when you tried it.
This way It might be possible to correlate your problems to something on the download server

Or maybe the world just doesn't like you... Just joking! Its either some network setting, an internet option setting, some download manager setting, or the server you are trying to download from (most unlikely but still probable).

Perhaps its a combination of firewall and router setting?


I would definatley check the internet options under "tools" if you are using IE.

It shouldn't if its windows's firewall, but then it probably isn't.
