Smile Kenstra Bitworld

Does someone know why i only can download demos either lha or dms packed demos from "Kenstra Bitworld". When i try to download an unpacked exec file, it downloads, but direct after download it shows up as an text, and the file won't execute. I've noticed that the file starts with 2 spaces ($2020 hex).

Can someone please tell me what's wrong?

Thanx!

Many of the download links on Kestra go to some external site. Which particular demo are you trying to download?

Could be a problem if you use download managers!
At least i have similar issue if i use DownThemAll for Mozilla Firefox, those Execs have .txt suffix after downloading!
Just use option "Save as"!

Ok. I'll try it. It seems being downloaded, but when finished it displays the file as a text. I loocked at it and it Begins with $2020 (weird) followed by $03fe just like the beginning of an exe file. I'll try to save as today.
