As you likely already know we employ Cloudflare to take care of some of our site security. This is essential, given in the pass we've been exposed to some pretty nasty things. The bulk of visitors are awesome, but there are still many people who are not (and thus - wreck it for everyone else).

There are however some workarounds.

1) Getting blocked for posting crash logs.
If you're getting blocked for posting a crash log / game log then you'll be triggering some rules on Cloudflare's end. I'm afraid, I'm not going to turn off these rules. You're best to use Pastebin (https://pastebin.com/) to post these logs linking your paste in the post you're doing.

2) Getting Capacha on everything you do.
As many sites - we do block countries however these countries are only blocked on a "Challenge" level. This prevents automated bots from attacking our infrastructure. There is a Google Chrome + Firefox addon that can assist with this however.

Download "Privacy Pass" from the following links depending on your browser:
Google Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... oehi?hl=en
Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... vacy-pass/

We also do allow VPN's like NordVPN (https://nordvpn.com/) or Private Internet Access (https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/) to get around some country blocks. Bare in mind however as these use shared IP addresses you'll have problems downloading the mod through them on our free download service.

3) Blocked using TOR.
We block TOR. Really, it is as simple as that. Don't use TOR.

4) Blocked trying to download.
