I have to download only one at a time since it shows me the limit.html page (where it tells me I've exceeded my limit of two concurrent downloads, even tho I am only downloading one) when I try to download two at a time. Disabled ad-block and all extensions/plugins, yet I still get the same message. Using latest Firefox. Just great.

Seriously, just put a torrent link for all the parts, and you won't have to pay for the servers or worry about security. P2P is literaly free bandwidth. Or have both, it's your choice.

People who want to donate, will still donate, regardless of it being available free. They aren't donating to get the download, they're donating to show support to the developement of the project. Just think of how many open source or fan projects are funded this way.
People who would donate, even more then 1$ it takes for the fast download, but get problems like this which are further emphasized by the 300kb/s download speed limit (in 2019), but prefer to try the product before giving any money, are turned away by imposements and issues like these, and nobody gains from a situation like this.
People who CAN'T donate, for any reason, won't ever donate, and even imposing ridiculous limits to the speed and downloads won't make them pay.

I really love the stuff you guys are doing, and great job, but its issues like this that really turn people away and slow down the community and project growth.

Thanks for your feedback but the systems as they are currently in place are fulfilling their duties very well and 99% of people are very pleased with them.

If the download limits at only 1 connection there has to be something on your system which is opening multiple threads.

Can't even download.

When I download the file and try to open it, it says it's corrupt. I've been trying to upgrade for like 2 days now, even wrote an email and no one seems to give a damn.

The ProMods mailbox is managed on an ad-hoc basis, usually once every week. We are volunteers, not a business.
