    Default Can't download from gamefront

    First of all I'm not sure that this would be the right place so soz. I'll get right into it. I can't download anything from gamefront which really sucks because I just got back into ut2k4 and I want to get some maps, skins etc. Is it just me? I read that they banned half the world. I'm from new zealand. I wasn't on the ban list. Can you guys download?

    Try using a different browser. Also check to see if you have sort of plugins on your browser (sometimes if it's a family computer there may be someone who puts addons onto firefox or chrome), one that could stop you from downloading would be an aggressive ad blocker or 'noscript' which blocks scripts from running (for security purposes). I have experienced a download not starting with them, but that was back in the day when it was "filefront" and since then no problems here.

    Well I'm using chrome. When is the last time you guys downloaded something from gamefront. I tried internet explore which crashed although I haven't updated that web browser in ages. I tried Firefox, and that crashes. Do I need to update java?

    That is strange. Sadly i am not sure what is going on. I just downloaded a test file and it worked. I am using firefox on windows 7.

    ok, so I figured out what was wrong. When they put in the blocks for certain countries they must of added new zealand by accident. I successfully downloaded a file through a proxy so that confirmed that they blocked my country even if it wasn't listed on their blocked list.

    You might want to contact them so they update either their ban list or their infos.

    Not that it matters; Gamefront is all but useless for file hosting now. A secondary mirror at best.

    I could not download a recent UT 99 map upload to gamefront yet a lot of other people were downloading the dom map.

    Well I started a help ticket with them and they finally asked me which country I lived in so I mentioned it and hopefully I can finally get back to downloading maps,mods,etc from them.They seem to be very helpful.
