Folks,
I've been using the Dropbox public folder option to store the Warzone: Ressurrection AB file with out incident.

I needed to push out an update today and now, Dropbox no longer supports public folders. Okay, I can live with that.

HOWEVER, when I share a link from dropbox, the heuristic name causes AB to declare the file as invalid (since its not a .ab file). Any ideas how to work around this?

Your best bet here is, sadly, probably to switch to some other hosting for the files.

I would personally recommend Github. While it's nominally made for techy types, they have great free file hosting for public projects, and there's a desktop client so you don't need to know the particulars of the backend software that they're using (git). Their project storage also lets you keep the full history of a text file and split/merge different versions based on what you're working on.

Folks,
Given the fact that Dropbox change broke the WZ download, I've temporarily uploaded the file to the Warzone official Facebook page.

I am also working with Prodos to get them to host the datafile on their Warzone Downloads page.

I think it is necessary to post a new link with a little change.

In URL, replace "https://www" with "dl", so

this

https://www.dropbox.com/s/w58z46h ...

becomes this

dl.dropbox.com/s/w58z46h.....
