The problem you're having is your firewall is blocking the incoming connection so you will need to check your firewall settings. You probably need delete the old exception and let it through again even if a different version was working. Do this on your computer and your router and hopefully it fixes the problem.

The firewall on my computer is disabled and I have no firewall settings on my Ubiquiti router that would disallow FTP.

So far, here's my troubleshooting:

On the same computer that I initially tried out WHDLoad Download Tool on, I fired up Filezilla, input my personal FTP account credentials for the FTP server and connected. However, I could not get a directory listing. The command to get the directory kept timing out. This probably explains why the Download Tool isn't working on this computer, although I'm puzzled why.

I have another computer on my network at home that can successfully connect to the FTP server with Filezilla, gives me a directory listing, and I can download files with Filezilla. However, the WHDLoad Download Tool is giving me the same results as the other computer. I get nothing in the file listing.

Am I supposed to already be pointing this tool to a folder that has a bunch of WHDLoad files in it, or should I be able to download a fresh copy of any of the WHDLoad games available?

Open the .prefs file in a text-editor and change the server address from grandis.nu to ftp.grandis.nu
It changed last week

I only have this (though it worked before):

;
[FTP]
FTP_User = xxxxx
FTP_Pass = xxxxx
;
[Paths]
WHD_Path = d:\WHDLoad Download Tool\Download\
WHD_Game = Games
WHD_Demo = Demos
WHD_Subfolder = 1
WHD_0toZ = 1
;
[Filter]
Filter_Games = 1
Filter_Demos = 1
Filter_Beta = 0
Filter_AGA = 1
Filter_ECS = 1
Filter_NTSC = 0
Filter_PAL = 1
Filter_Files = 0
Filter_Image = 0
Filter_Amiga = 1
Filter_Arcadia = 0
Filter_CD32 = 1
Filter_CDTV = 0

In the [FTP] section insert a line with
Code:
FTP_Server = ftp.grandis.nu

WHDLoad Download Tool v0.8b

Version 0.8b is available

This is a quick update that fixes the Turran FTP address as it has changed. You can either delete any prefs files and re-create them or change the ftp address line ftp.grandis.nu with a text editor.

V0.9a is still in development and is a while away from release. The new version will add HTTP downloading, A500 mini 256 file folder support and downloading into category based folders.

Links are in the first post.

This is really nice.. Thanks for all of the hard work!

has anyone created a .dat file or something with long game names so we can actually use decent names when running in retroarch?

WHDLoad Download Tool 0.9a (Test Release)

This is a test release which has HTTP support for downloading from the Turran server. Hopefully this will eliminate the connection issues that have been reported in previous versions. FTP is still supported but is slower due to waiting for connections and folder changes.

Fixes / Updates

v0.9a
  • Fixed a bug in subfolder creation.
  • Added ability to download to folder structures either by category or alphabetically.
  • Changed 'Save Prefs' and 'Load Prefs' to be disabled until the database is loaded.
  • Centered console on main window.
  • Added HTTP based downloads.
  • HTTP & FTP downloading now selectable fron the main window. HTTP is now the default, but the setting is saved in the prefs files if the user
  • wants to change it.
  • Added HTTP path to main window and prefs.
  • Removed 'Use Subfolders' gadget and replaced with selectable combo gadgets for sorting downloads.
  • Improved the download preview window procedure.
  • Added a selectable 255 file limit to the download folders for the A500 mini home computer.
  • All FTP and download gadgets are enabled by default.
  • The FTP procedure has been updated to support the 0-Z and category downloads.
  • Removed 'Make Folder' until I can make a better implementation of it.
  • Fixed a small bug in scrape data procedure.
  • Updated help file to reflect this versions changes.
  • Improved the filter speed.
  • Clear data now keeps the server and filter settings.
  • Fixed a couple of bugs in the save/load prefs procedure. All gadgets now update properly.
  • The clean files process is a bit dumber in the sense that it just looks for the right filename and deletes any lha or lzx file that doesn't match. It does still look for zero kilobyte files.
  • Added a 'refresh list' keyboard shortcut (F5) to update the available files if the user deletes any files manually.

Please report any bugs/issues below.
