Installer will not download through Chrome

Try to Right+Click and Open in New Tab. Or copy the link and paste it into browser.

Perhaps that's because of https://www.ghacks.net/2020/10/08/chrome-is-blocking-downloads-here-is-why/
Which is rather stupid, because this is a static file, and there is absolutely no reason to serve it over https. No additional security is gained this way.

@taaaki / @Springheel: Could you please replace http:// with https:// in all URLs on the Downloads page?

Obviously not a general Chromium problem, just Chrome. With Vivaldi there are no problems either. If it is in Windows, the Defender or another AV already prevents the download, when it is infected by malware, therefore the behavior of Chrome is obviously stupid. Google should take more care of the extensions in its Chrome Store, quite often infected with all kinds of evil-and spyware, only eliminated after an Userreport, which is much more serious.

The first 5 I looked at where already set to https.  Which link is causing the problem?

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?

      Hope everyone has the blessing of undying motivation for "The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest". Can't wait to see the many magnificent missions you all may have planned. Good luck, with an Ace!
