Mega problema

Postby rastan saga » Wed Oct 07, 2020 11:07 pm

Because I'm using Window XP, the download site named "Mega" doesn't allow me to download files anymore...

It simply needs a browser update but no browser updates for XP (I tried all of them). As far as I can see, all game download sites, including LegendsWorld, uploading the new games to this site. I have to admit, Mega is very useful and fast and I was very happy with it until now.

Is there anything I can do other than the "change your operating system"? Otherwise, I will no longer be able to download dozens of games from here and my archiving days will be end. Some files are only available on Mega and nowhere else.

I repeat, I don't want to change my operating system and I won't. I am open all other suggestions you can give to me except of this.

Best one can do is to switch the browser's user agent (this is yer device's basic properties sent at the website's request by the browser for identification) - either manually, or by using a browser plugin (just :google: fer "user agent switcher", can't miss 'em, then find the latest XP-compatible versions of those) :wink:
Also, it is recommended to NOT download from MEGA using the browser, as the blob: protocol used by the service will force the browser to eat up RAM faster than a human can eat an Eti Yami candybar (see better solution below) :lol:

Not sure if it'll work that well based on me rant above (and also 'cause China spyware) - better off modifying more popular browsers for improving support instead :!:

Recommending MegaBasterd instead (can download multiple files at once, plus has usable proxies, although MEGA itself seems to have been cracking down on no-account limit bypasses lately :( ) :up:

You can try to use MyPal:

Code: Select all
https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/releases


It's a browser maintained and current for Windows XP:

Code: Select all
https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal#readme


I tried it on Windows 8.1, it seems to work fine with downloading files from Mega.

The error message I get when I try to run the program is;
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application."

I guess this MyPal is actually a Firefox mod. Because I see the same error after installing the last update Firefox released for XP, it doesn't work either by giving this error message. I wonder if something is missing in my system? What error is this "0xc0000142"?

By the way, the message I got while trying to enter Mega is this;
"Your browser seems a bit outdated
Please update to the latest version or switch to a recommended browser.
Our recommended browsers fully support MEGA's advanced HTML5 functionality, quickly add support for new web standards and provide timely security updates."

So it doesn't even let me enter the site for trying download...

I just installed and tested MyPal on the Windows XP VM made by Molitor:

- The progam installs and runs fine
- Downloading this file from Mega.nz went OK

No problems here.
