Unhappy Demo Download obstructed by form

I tried to download the demo but all I get is a form to fill out.
I'm not interested in filling it out,and the download doesn't happen.

Can you provide a direct download? Thanks

Hi Skirmisher:

Hmm, I just tried it and it seems to be working. The demo page does bring up a form to subscribe to our email list but the download kicked in after a few seconds (you do not need to do anything with the form).

Please try it again. I know sometimes when I download from a site that has a built in delay every so often it won't click but usually a refresh does the trick. If you're still having problems I believe you should be able to find the demo on some game sites.

It isn't working. It says download will start in 8 seconds, but then nothing happens. I'm having the same problem with the new SPWW2 upgrade. Can't download that either.
Ok I'll check around see if I can get it someplace else.

Maybe not being able to download it is for my own good. lol.

Many sites include a "if the download does not begin, click here" because some browers prefer to block automatic things along that line.

There is no option like that. No matter what I click nothing happens.
I've never had ANY problem downloading from shrapnel before... Thats why this is kinda surprizing.

Im sorry, I meant it as a suggestion for them.
Altho you might look and see if the "options" menu for your browser has something turned off

Try that link. It is the download link pulled from the page's source.
