    Default Manually report broken, dead links on TWC Download

    The main purpose for this thread is to have a place where to manually report broken, dead links on TWC Download and the reason why is this.

    When posting in this thread, please provide as much of information (current mod link, other mirrors etc) as possible for the mod in question as that will help the Modding Staff to actually find the mod.


    Alright, I begin then by asking the people here about the Punic Total War Quotes mod. Does anyone have a copy of that mod?

    If it matters I have tried the Wayback Machine, but strangely the Wayback Machine wasn't helpful this time around. Maybe someone have better luck with the Wayback Machine than me.

    Should anyone find a broken link in a forum thread then it's a lot better to report it rather than posting about it here.

    Of course, if anyone know a working link(s) for a mod that hasn't been reported yet then please by all means just post the link and doing that will be save the Modding Staff valuable time and extra work.



    Everything else e.g comments, suggestions etc needs to be posted in the Modding Staff Commentary Thread as this thread is for reporting broken, dead links on TWC Download only.

    Milner's Shadows of war mod are now mirrored on TAL. That was possible thanks to Warcrafthero and his mirror on MEGA, so rep him when you see him.

    Should anyone have the TROM 2.41 mod intact then by all means let us know about it, so I can correct the external download link on TWC Download.

    If it weren't for you I would probably never notice that the posted link to a picture was blocked by ImageShack, so I added a staff message.

    The picture is blocked by ImageShack and to view the picture requires registration.

    Could anyone from the Modding Staff move the pictures here to here as the first link goes to a mod entry that has no file added due for being infected by a virus?

    It serves no purpose to have pictures added to a dead mod entry does it while the other mod entry needs the pictures. Just to avoid confusing.

    Malware may be embedded within the picture files. Therefore, I'm not going to do so and won't recommend modding staff to do so.

    But I've added a comment that pictures may be viewed at users own risk.

    I have checked each image in sequence with virustotal, let malwarebytes take a look and done a blind test of opening them for good measure in a safe enough environment. Don't worry about it. Any further apprehension is needless paranoia.

    The picture links in the text are simply dead - imageshack and divshare based.

    The pictures in the 'images' section are perfectly safe where I am concerned, underneath the links to them, no alarms by the way when opening the pics. I would suggest to use the links in the main text as otherwise you would need to download them and then attach.

    I reckon he had a similar issue I have faced myself occasionally - some overeager AV identifying a BAT file as virus, installers themselves fall victim to it as well. In the case here the application is designed to alter files, no surprise then it might raise an alarm if it hasn't been programmed with an AV check in mind.
