How to download a file with no link?

September 5, 2014 at 04:19:04
Specs: Windows XP
download file that appears in page source but there's no link for it?

I've tried using an FTP browser (get an error), looking in a directory (by deleting the last part of the URL all the way to the '/' but I get a 404).

What else can I try?

This is how the file is being accessed by the page source:

Widgets.ChessView().chessBase.init({"a400RoUrSN0pSS2WlOCVidHhSQ":{"meta":{"White":{"Name":"Nakamura, Hikaru","Elo":"2787"},"Black":{"Name":"Carlsen, Magnus","Elo":"2877"},"Result":"\u00bd-\u00bd","Event":"Sinquefield Cup","Site":"St. Louis","Date":"2014.08.28","Round":"2","ECO":"C60","Annotator":"Jan Gustafsson","PlyCount":"64","EventDate":"2014.??.??","SourceDate":"2014.08.28","Title":"Nakamura, Hikaru (2787) vs. Carlsen, Magnus (2877) 1\/2-1\/2","SourceFile":"Naka-Carlsen St.louis.pgn","etc.........

The file that I want, .pgn, is at the very end.

This is the page in question

Please help me. If the answer is complex I'll be able to understand - I know programming.

You can't find it that way because since there's no link to the file the browser can't see it.

It's a file that's on the server but the webmaster doesn't want you accessing it directly.

How could you get such files?

I can't find the picture you are referring to. For me all pictures can be saved.

You are trying to download a file reference that is embedded in to a script and that cant be done. The file reference, "Naka-Carlsen St.louis.pgn is relative to the server that is serving the web page. Do download the file you we need to know the URL of the server it is stored and the folder where the file is saved.

If the webmaster wanted you to download the file he would have given you the full URL of the file. He doesn't so he hasn't.

If your're sure that's the file you want, contact the webmaster and ask for it.

It's not a picture, actually. It's only a text file with a .pgn (not .png!) extension.

pgn = portable game notation. For tracking scores and the like.
