I want to download every UT99 and UT2004 files, it's possible to make a FTP server where I can download every file?
And I think FTP would be more faster than WGet.

That's a no. Would take a huge hit on my monthly bandwidth to allow that to happen. It is why I had to take measures to prevent people from abusing the site by ripping it using programs such as wget. Doing so will get your IP banned if you hammer the site to often in a short time. I advise that you put a delay between the requests if you choose to.

So what I do? Download every single file manually?

I don't really know. My file repository isn't for people to download everything all at once for a personal collection or even to share it with others. There are a few other sites that have copied ut-files.com that you could probably rip from. Granted their connections might be slower for you, but they may allow you to download everything at once or without limits.

The purpose of this site is to provide downloads for people who need the files for personal use. I've tried to make that as easy as I possibly can for them.

That's still over 190GB in a single month for a single person. My bandwidth is not free.
