I can't see the download button!
Apparently some firewall programs can stop the download button from appearing. Trying disabling your firewall momentarily and refresh the page.

Where are the downloads stored?
We have partnered with two cloud storage services to keep the Ghost Recon Downloads online at all times. These are not free services however, so please donate a small amount if you can to keep our downloads online!

How do I download the file?
Once you have found a file you want to download simply press the Download button that appears right below the file information table. See the image below for an example.

Why is the movie I downloaded not playing?
Movies can be encoded using various codecs in order to make the file size as small as possible without sacrificing quality. On the download page we will record exactly which codec is used. Install the noted codec and the movie should playback. Below you will see a list of commonly used codecs and where to find them. Note that there is always a free download, you do not have to pay for the basic codec installation.

  • DivX (DivX also has its own standalone player that you can install for free)
  • Xvid

If you are not sure which codec is being used, you can download this free tool called GSpot which will analyse the movie file and reveal which codec you need to view it.

The download is a rar file, what do I do with that?
A RAR file is a compressed file, just like a zip file. You'll need a tool to uncompress the file before you can use it. A good free tool which handles many different types of compression is Izarc, and it's free!

I get an error when trying to download a file.
Just below the download button, there is a link like this "Report Broken Download Link". If you click that link a form will appear with the name of the file automatically inserted. Please complete the form by adding your email address and details of the exact nature of error.

What is the comments feature for?
At the foot of every download page there is the option for users to leave a comment about the file. Comments left by other users will appear automatically in date order, most recent first. Please restrict your comments to your views on the actual file, do not ask for help or support using the comments feature - it will only be deleted by Admin.

We encourage all users to leave a comment about the files that you download. Other users find this of great value when selecting which Ghost Recon files to download.

How do I install a mod?
