Question Advanced wget...

I want to do a very simple thing on this URL:
I want to download all the *.pk3 files using wget... I tried several variations os parameters and I cant get it to work... I even tried Spiderzilla, but it doesnt work, and I dont know why, and I dont give a damn... I KNOW it cant be done with wget, but I dont know how...

Any suggestions? Please, if its not asking to much, test before posting a suggestion...

Thanks in advance!!

According to the man pages you should be able to do it with something like the following:

You want to download all the GIFs from a directory on an HTTP server. You tried wget*.gif, but that didn't work because HTTP retrieval does not support
globbing. In that case, use:

wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A.gif

This is the string I used....
wget -cm -nH --cut-dirs=2 -A.pk3 \

This may qualify as not-so-advanced wget ...

I'm trying to modify a friend's site, so I want to create a local mirror of it. It uses a lot of Flash animation, which seems to be hanging up wget - it doesn't go past the first page. The site is

Any suggestions from those more experienced? Is there a better tool than wget, i.e., Kget, etc.?
