    can't d/l games like I used to


    I have just acquired my first lap top with Win8. I used to have a pc with XP. I have a site I d/l games from(have for a long time) Now, when I try to d/l from there, the d/l doesn't finish, get the error d/l pop up. The games are mostly rar files. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

    What happens when you try to download the games from the developers like Steam or Origin (whichever you use)? I don't know how you "download" the games; possible that's the problem.

    I don't use either of those. I d/l from this site leegt-games.co.uk. I just find the game I want, click on what link(s) I want and d/l. clicking on run. Now when I do that, the d/l won't finish. I get this message .C:\Users\Donna\Downloads\MountainTrapManorMem.exe could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.( This specific for this game.)

    I've never heard about that site but from what I can tell, it doesn't seem like a legitimate (or legal) means of acquiring games. I would consult with that site's forum, perhaps it's an issue at their end. Other than that, I can't really help you, read the forum rules if you're curious.
