You just have to put in the download URL from the Adrift site and it will download it, but of course those games need be working first.

It's possible to use the files on Delron, but they're all zipped so he says he'd have to set up a way to extract them.

Something like http://vps730111.ovh.net/?game=http://w ... /akron.zip would theoretically work once that's done.

He's talked about making a crawler to download all the games, that'd be an extra source of backups and you would simply need the file name in that case, like the way Skybreak is set up right now.

But right now even in a worst case scenario, IFComp games can be set up for online play if you just send the files to him, even if the issues with the main site somehow dragged on that long or cropped up again.

That's great. Hopefully, everything will be working before IFcomp.

As P/o Prune told us, game downloads are now now working :bravo:

I tried:

But it doesn't seem to work. Am I doing something wrong?

Ah whoops, it's the play URL, not the download.
