Better place to download YSFlight from?

Post by DetectDefective » Fri Jan 18, 2013 10:44 am

I went to grab YSFlight from the creator's homepage, but I've gotta go through CNet to apparently get it for my OS. I'd actually rather not go through a bunch of crud in the vein of redirects and installers, so I took another shot and looked around here. Directed to the creator's homepage, which directs me to CNet. Bleh.

There ever any chance of the creator or YSFHQ hosting the latest version directly, or is my best bet to rifle through the CNET crap? :P

CNet is the only place to download YSflight from. Hosting it anywhere else is not allowed.

You shouldn't get re-directed anywhere. One click download for me.

Actually if you go to the CNET page from the ysflight.com site it will prompt you to download some silly stuff, like the CNET taskbar and other pointless stuff. What I recommend is clicking on the "Download Direct Link" near the bottom of the page.

Understood. I was hesitant since I clicked on it and was immediately blocked. Done and done, thanks for your patience. :D

That's odd, because I remember downloading it from Gamehippo long ago. My memory could be wonky, though.
