imme0, are you sure that the download hasn't started? The progress bar on Opera's taskbar icon shows that something is actually loading up, or something is getting downloaded.

Also, is there any reason why the site keeps me from downloading 3rd file out of 7 needed on the free download system? I think the system, which determines amount of currently used download threads is quite unreliable.

My download isn't working. I can download the def file just fine but when i try to download mod files it says i exceeded the donwload limit, although i haven't downloaded a file from the promods site for more than 3 weeks. Any help? i read that text that says that if i keep trying to download the mod i will get temp-banned my IP. Am i banned or something? Also, just so you know, i am trying to download the mod from my HOME network, and there are no other computers connected to it.

Of all the replies since my last reply I've checked the logs of each individual and can see attempts within seconds of each other meaning the servers are flagging active requests. They're restricting based off this, but this also means you've got something on your PC that is causing this to happen.

I see the major 3 browsers - Chrome, Edge and Firefox v68

In this time, the servers have successfully been processing downloads for many other people and are not at capacity. I've also been unable to replicate the issue myself.

Please ensure:
1) You're only using Windows Defender as your antivirus of choice. Many others will interfere with the download (and having only Windows Defender is actually safer than many other alternatives).
2) There is nobody else on your network, or IP address downloading at the same time.
3) Read the FAQ for the rest: https://www.promods.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26256

The system is somewhat reliable, but a little grumpy under severe load like it has been for the last 2 days.

At 1st I'm sorry if this the wrong to ask about my problem.

I have downloaded part 1-4 in the past 24, but whenever I try to download part 5 I always get the limit exceeded page.

I finished pay part 4 around my 4 pm, at 6 pm I finished part 7 (couldn't do 5). Now since 6 pm to next day 1 pm, I waited to do part 5, but same limit page keeps appearing. So I went back and tried part 6 and it worked.

I have all the parts except 5. Omg when waiting for 18h I'm unable to get 5.

Kindly help me out.

Using Firefox.

So I tried downloading the Promods for TruckersMP and I have a problem.The thing is that I cannot download it on google chrome I get this error:

Sorry! Access Denied
Connection limit exceeded!
You're using the free download service and have exceeded your connection limit of 2 concurrent download threads. The free download service is also limited at 300KB/sec per download thread in order to ease the load on our servers and to keep it fair for other people downloading.

You'll need to wait for your current download(s) to complete before attempting another download.

- Please check if you have disabled any download managers or accelerators.
- Try a different browser as sometimes your browser can open up multiple connections to our servers.
- Disable any third party anti-virus or firewall software that may "scan" downloads before downloading (thereby exceeding the limit).
- Ensure you're not on a shared network (University/Work, CG-NAT or on a mobile network).
- Wait at least 5 minutes after your previous download and try again.

IMPORTANT: Any further attempts to get around this limit will result in a temporary ban of your IP interrupting any downloads you've currently got in progress - your patience is appreciated.

Did you also know you can also pay €1 to access a fast download?
It's a great way of supporting us!

Thanks for supporting ProMods!

It is my first time downloading it. So after waiting 5 minutes I tried again and same error pops out.So far I tried Opera,Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge and no luck.
On Edge i get Connection timed out.

Any fixes for this? And thanks in advance

you have to download all parts first, then you can start extracting.
