I have been referring people to other browsers, but if you are using Chrome, and you click on a link and nothing happens (no redirect, no "page not found", just nothing happens), this could be it.
The server the downloads are serviced from is an http webpage, while much of SWBFgamers runs on https.  Two things will fix the problem:
  • Use a different browser like Edge or Firefox
  • Take the link to the download page, and remove the "s" from "https" (now it is http)
The download button should work then.
