Sounds like whatever was renaming the files before no longer works/ is implemented, so the names are now just what the original author uploads them as? Definitely something that should be fixed.

I downloaded Redux yesterday and it was gayporn.zip…

Just kidding, but I’m sure SOMEONE named their zip something stupid :P

i wont be buying any more items until this gets fixed, its too much of a mess to handle with when you save large amounts of items.

Hey Chris,

Really sorry to hear the new downloads change has had a negative effect on you, wasn’t our intention! :)

I’ll bring this up with the devs and staff right away to see what we can come up with. Please contact me personally if you have any more ideas or suggestions for what would be most helpful for power buyers.

why was the downloads changed?

having files named files.zip or download.zip is really confusing, the old method was much better item-name-item-id.zip

that way i can search on my system for the file, with the new files, it relies on the author to name it properly, half the time its a very generic name like files.zip or package.zip etc.

Hey Chris,

As I’m not a dev I’m not sure of why it was originally changed, but I just got word back that this should be fixed now and much more useable :)
