I have no particular interest in this tournament, but I often seen displays like this and wish to extract games without needing to type them out manually. Is there some way to download the PGNs?

If you remove the last file name, you get the listing of the contents of the directory:


The .txt files are files used by the Flash program to find the moves. But there also is a pgn file:


However, if I recall correctly, the pgn file does not always exist. If it does not exist, one way would be to write a script that parses the pos##.txt files which contain all moves even when the games are ongoing. I thought of doing that before the pgn files started appearing (probably an update of the dgt software?) in the directories, but never got started.
