Hey guys, going for a new playthrough in KOTOR and having a little problem downloading mods for it, I wanted the KOTOR ultimate but every time I got redirect to Gamefront and going to start download the file I get a 403 forbidden error, already tried with Chrome and Opera, both the same thing, tried the other mods and even the other's in Filefront which also downloads from Gamefront it always give me this error.I also tried with the firewall and anti-virus disabled didn't work either.
Anyone also having this problem?

@kilertrtr you should be able to download in Lithuania, it's not on the list. Maybe it's blocked by Gamefront too?

Maybe you could use a proxy to pass by country filtering or simply find mirrors elsewhere.

To see all mirrors of ModDB downloads you simply need to add /all to the link of the download displayed after you hover your mouse over DOWNLOAD NOW! button.

So for example KotOR - Ultimate download button link: <- this should display all available mirrors

@feillyne Unfortunately my country is on the list you provided so I'm unable to download some stalker mods which are only available on Gamefront. Just wanted to ask if you have any info about will they "fix" that issue eventually or is there some certain policy towards listed countries concerning downloading and other stuff?
Thanks for any help or info.

There's a policy it seems but I don't know exactly. There may be no "fix" for this anytime soon...

note that gamefront filtering may not be perfect. so even if you are not on this country list - if gamefront thinks you are you will be blocked. we don't have any control over this

Thanks for the replies. Given that my knowledge concerning this area is not so wide, I doubt that I can find a way to circumvent this issue but no big deal, I'll just download something else.

I'm having the exact same issue, and my country's not on the list either. It has to be recent, I only started having those problems around one or two months ago. Before that, I had been using GameFront without any problem for years. They'd better fix it soon.

We are doing alot of behind the scenes work to get more ModDB mirrors active - but its unfortunatelly very time consuming process. We hope to have this work completed by April.

Its a long way off yes, but the end result should mean more mirrors that have higher capacity and more download slots available for registered members. By default now, guest cannot use our mirrors - so if you have a modDB/Desura account you get access to our 10 private file mirrors in Europe and the US. We are also working hard to get an AU mirror back online.
