Hi,

It is quite simple really ...

First of all look at the url for the file you want to download. I will use the portalib examples as an example ...it looks like this
http://rsn.gamedev.net/script/filetrax.asp?FILENAME=http://rsn.gamedev.net/files/pl-examples-0.3.tar.gz&NAME=PLEXAMPLES

So we can see it gives the full url of the file but as a variable posted to filetrax.asp (which seems to no longer work)

So we simply remove all the extra stuffs and voila ...we get
http://rsn.gamedev.net/files/pl-examples-0.3.tar.gz

You can apply this to all the files linked to on rsn but some may no longer exist (the site has been dead a long long time now)

Regards,
ViLiO
