- please check if you have disabled any download managers or accelerators
- disable any anti-virus or firewall software that may "scan" downloads before downloading (thereby exceeding the limit)
- check if you are not on a shared network (university/work, CG-NAT or mobile network)
- wait at least one hour and try again

I'm having the same issue trying to download the Middle East addon. Download limit exceeded though I'm not downloading anything. I always run Firefox in safe mode when downloading from the site to ensure there's no addons interfering with the page. This is the first time I've had an issue, I even got the 2.41 Promods version at release without any issues either. I did read the FAQ section and I don't have any of the situations listed there.

Hello,

I try to download the middle east add on the complete day.

But I get always the same message "Sorry! Access Denied Connection limit exceeded!"
How could this happen? My last download is 2 weeks ago.
Also to use different Brwoser isn't working.

How often I have to try till I get banned for the function? As described in the Warning message?

Regards

I cannot download anything from your site , because it thinks I have reached the download limit of 2 ,even tho I am not downloading anything at all at the moment !!!
And please don't redirect me to that link ,I've read it and I've done everything that is listed there .

I am using Mozilla , without accelerators ,without adblock , with disabled anti-virus ,with my own home router and I have already waited an hour and I still get the same message. I had the same issue before ( if u go back 5 pages ) and the only thing you did was to tell me : "It is all explained here " .Decided to come back again and to my surprise I could only install the 1st part and then 'bang ! one part is enough for today' .

I thought your mod was "free" . Is this on purpose to encourage you to pay ? Please help.

EDIT: A restart to PC has somehow did it . Sorry !

Maybe some process on your PC was actively scanning the link and the restart stopped it from doing it..

This is not an issue on any computer. It must be an issue from your download side.
It works for me after 50 retry with the same browser without any modification of anything.
And this is not the first time that this occurs.
I had already the issue in the past, not only once a time. Very often mostly if i started the first download and tried the second download your error warning popup.
So why? Is it not able to track the correct qty of downloads?
Also I get also a unauthorized ban over 1 day "i reached the maximum qty and tried to often to download" but this is not true.

I can fully understand to say this issue is caused from the user PC. But this is not true.

Regards

Sure, it's a problem in the System not in the Users PC! That's why thousands of Users (including) me can use the free download service without any problems.

Sure.
I doesn't have the issue on any other side where I download. Just here.
But the fact is, you included a traffic limiter to avoid that to much people download on the same time and that the traffic rises into the immeasurable, which caused the issue.
And you already described it "please disable this and this and also this to avoid that your download doesn't work. pls have just a look at your link which you provided."

I fully agree with you that you wanted that the people use the paypal method, but some can't use it because they doesn't have a paypal acc.
And it's terrible for us to download if this doesn't work if we do all what you described.

But hey let`s stamp it as curiosity if it's works sometimes and soemtimes not if the conditions doesn't changed.

have a great evening!
