Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

I noticed that your Linux download is a plain tar archive. If you gzipped it, it would be about 15-20 MB less in size, which could be great if the connection's finicky.
Do you think you should start gzipping it? It's as simple as using
tar czf $FILE.tar.gz $DIRECTORY
instead of
tar cf $FILE.tar $DIRECTORY

A 15-20 MB decrease is always welcome to me, but I don't know how much it would actually matter compared to the massive size of the game.

Also, I'm responding to every question, complaint, or problem with "Have you considered gzipping your tarball?" now.
