Maybe I'm just stupid or something, but almost every download link works except the one for Colonization.

All three downloads (two language versions of the game plus the manual) work. What error message do you get when you try which link?

i would like to have the german version, but i am not able to download it either :/

and it is just nearly 4 MB, so it would be possible to upload it on many other sites, e.g. rapidshare.de
or send it via e-mail to me.

if someone would upload it and post the URL or send the german version to me, i would appreciate it ;)

Regards

The downloads are still all working. If you want help, you have to give a detailed error description.

Oh, and here's a quote from the board rules:

alrighty then :D

the error happens every time i try to download.

i go to this page: http://www.goodolddays.net/0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_de_0_178_show_1_0_0_0/

the i click on "Download (Deutsch 3.37 MB)", which leads me to http://www.goodolddays.net/0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_0_de_0_178_download_1_0_0_0/

ok, the i click on the download button and a white page appears and nothing happens.

that is my error :)

and ok, i won't leave my email here ;)

Are you using a browser which doesn't support FTP connections and also doesn't have a handler to forward those request to another program? Do you have a firewall / NAT / gateway disallowing FTP traffic?

ah well... i use firefox 1.5.0.4 and everything worked fine on this site. i can download everything i wanted, except that one ^^

but a colleague said to me, i should use the Internet Explorer instead. hmm, ok. why not. it's worth a try ;)

and what happened... of course it worked. -.-

now i am glad to have the german version :D

but the problem is that i cannot download that file with firefox but i can download it with IE.
but i can download any other downloads i tried with firefox. thats strange ^^

It's not even worth talking about that piece of crap by Microsoft, because everything I could say is obvious anyway. Point is, there is a device or application somewhere in your network prohibiting Firefox to access FTP links. That 'problem' only occurs when you try to download a larger than average file, because the rest is available via HTTP.

Anyway, glad you finally got it :)

You chose the correct thread to post this - the files are online (just like in the case of the original poster), but something on your side is apparantely blocking FTP connections. Same question I asked at 09:32 on July, 27th 2006 for you ;)
