Hello :)
Today I try to download a level on this site but Google Chrome blocks all downloads (first time happens) :|
Anyone has the same problem ?

Yes.

Use a different browser. Firefox seems to have the same issue... Avast Secure Browser or Safari may do the trick. I'm sure others may function too... And I very much doubt Chrome blocks all downloads.

There's a thread about these things in the Chat about a level section.

I will see thank you Jorge :)
the strange thing is the last week I hadn't any problem. I try on different site like Aspide and in that case I have no blocked download with Chrome :?

Chrome announced they'd be implementing higher security levels.

I can't find the news on that anymore, not right now, but I did read something about it.

Curious. I use Google Chrome as well, and when I tried to download the latest Gabriel Croft release, the download proceeded normally, but the instant it was completed a message popped up saying "download is malicious and has been blocked." This has never happened to me before. The download seemed to be complete, however, but was named "Unconfirmed 357957.crdownload." So I simply renamed it to "ABC.zip," unzipped and installed the game, and everything seems to be working fine for now.

Ooooookkk... I didn't notice that. The only option I actually noticed was whatever-it-was-called, meant to confirm that the download was cancelled. That is using Chrome, of course.

You know, you may easily disable Chrome's protection. Thing is all of it. And the question is: is it really a good idea? Namely while you're able to download levels using some other browser?

I have the same problem. Using Firefox with McAfee, levels (including my own
- which I know are virus free) are flagged as “dangerous”.

I had this problem today, while trying to download one of the newest games. Google Chrome refused to download, explaining that the file was dangerous. So, I tried to download one game that I already had downloaded and played. Same thing. The download was also blocked. I have two questions: (1) Are there some means to warn Google Chrome that I don't want blockings when I try to download something of this site? I've sent a message, without success. (2) If not, how can I disable temporarily Chrome's protection? I don't know how to do it. I'd appreciate any suggestions. I don't want to change the browser, because I have tried others, and didn't like them.

This works for me.

Thanks for your answer. I had seen Phil's message, but my case is different, as the download is not even initiated, let alone completed, so I cannot rename the file, for no file was generated.

YES!!! That's just it, exactly, I'll try what you suggest, Vimmers, thank you so much!!!! :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup:,

LATER... It worked perfectly, and I just began to play Rudolf's game (very beautiful, that was my first impression, and Lara is very pretty with a short hair, for a change :D ). But it involved some (little) trouble to make Google Chrome download the game. I'm wondering if it will go on like this, for all games we want to download... :annoyed:

It's easy to disable Chrome's protection. But not the best move.
Using a different browser does the trick.
