Download won't work for me

Hi,

I'm trying to DL some games - but the download won't work for me.
If I try to DL an APP it worked...

Any suggestions...

Which games do you have problems with?

It appears to be any game at all. Try:

http://macintoshgarden.org/games/a-train
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/at-the-carnival
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/air-traffic-controller
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/abalone

The download link has become just the topic link. ie, the download link for A-Train is:
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/a-train

You might have a bad cached copy, try reloading the page. It works right here.

Nope, same deal. If I look at the html that's served up to me, the download url is blank:
<div class="note download">
<strong><a href="">Download</a></strong> (524.43 KB)<br />
</div>
And I believe that's from a page I've never loaded before. (Not much of a Sports game fan.)

Oh, that's for NFL Challenge by the way:

Neither Starbound II nor The Lawn Zapper will download here.

Looks like Maedi will have to fix this.

When I'm logged in everything works fine.

Same as the original poster: I can download apps, but not games.

I think I fixed it. Let me know if there are any more problems.

Make sure to reload your pages.

Ok, it looks like the files are there, but the link is different that before. I don't know if that matters. For instance, Abalone's download is:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/macgarden/Abalone.SIT

Citadel and Defender of the Crown also need a fix.

S3 wasn't 'enabled' for anonymous/authenticated users. This has been fixed, how's it work for you guys?

Those two games that katae do not work for me, but it looks as if most everything else does.

S3 wasn't 'enabled' for anonymous/authenticated users.

What's an anonymous/authenticated user? That sounds like two exclusive groups that would include everyone. (You're either authenticated or you're anonymous?)

I ask because when this problem started, I noticed that a bunch of history seems to have been lost. All of the items in the "games uploaded so far" list suddenly appeared as if they had just been added, or had comments made to them, even though I had "read" them earlier.

Also, a lot (maybe all) of my recent revisions are now listed as having been done by Anonymous, when I'm certain (for some of them at least) that the history used to show my user name. I am currently logged in, and as far as I know, have been consistently through all of this.

None of that is particularly important to me, but I thought those symptoms might point to a core problem.

@grawlix.computing:

S3 had only been enabled for site admins before.
The "Games uploaded so far" list is not really that. It's a "Recent changes" list. I could fix that name, if you wish.

About "Anonymous," I have no idea about that.

Those two games somehow didn't get uploaded to S3 and I'm not sure how to do so. They're still on the server though.

No, the name is fine--I just thought it's mass change in status my be symptomatic of something larger. I just made a minor edit and it seems to know who I am now. Maybe for those entries of mine that have gone anonymous, I'll be mistaken for that famous historical writer, Anon.
