I just tried and got a file off ModDB without having an account or logged in. I loaded the main page and clicked on the first mod I saw, NProject Mod 2.8.1. After that I clicked Download Now! under the pic then Download Now again on the next page. After that a box popped up similar to the one on Desura that had a link at the top of it to direct download, and the file also started downloading automatically after a few seconds.
Fictionvision: You don't need an account to download anything unless you have to pay for it on Desura. When you click a link you click view stand alone downloads and you get a direct link to the file. Same for bought purchases if you are logged in.
amok: hm. You definitely need an account to upload a mod to Mod DB. I am trying to figure out how to download without having one...I only get the option to install Desura (which I have from before). I can see how to get them from Desura, yes, same as downloading a demo.
Edit: I tried another mod, Cry of Fear 1.0. The page gave two options, Download Now and Download on Desura. The Download Now link sent me to Gamefront. The Download on Desura gave a prompt to install Desura, but one I clicked the Cry of Fear link in the pop up box, it went to the Desura page which allowed a separate download.
Is there a specific mod you are trying that isn't giving a direct download option, either from moddb or desura itself?
