If the game is downloadable, you will see this icon on the game's description page:

Just click it and do so on the next page. Your download will begin and the download page will then reload to a request for donations to help keep the site online.

Except that the donation page has a tendency of popping up again...

When you click on the "get it" button from the game description, you go to a first webpage with a second "get it" button, and when you click on it two things should happen at the same time: your download will start, and you'll be taken to the donation request page.

Donation is optional.

If we can't offer the game for download for some reason (see "what is abandonware" on the requests board rules), the "get it" button will be replaced by a different button or notice.

Not happening, sorry.

I got the donation page several times - even donated a few quid, I like your Page and find it worth supporting.

But no download is happening, however often I presses "get it" on the first and second page....

And now I am feeling kinda ripped off, and even registered just to vent...
yeah, pathetic, I know.

Ideas?

For starters, try with a different browser.

Using Thunderbird, but tried IE now with no different effect.

I tried to get Fantasy general, which is quite abandoned....

Hmmm, I just checked the download, and it's definitely working. You'll have to click the GET IT button on two different pages, are you doing that?
