I have fixed the problem for me!

What went wrong for me, was that each file was not 204,800kb each (except the 006 file, which must be 49,803kb), my browser had simply not downloaded the very last parts of the files.

Also make sure when you re-download, that the files keep their original names and don't have a (1) after their name!

So, the next day I redownloaded each file until I got one of each at the exact size that I needed. So check your files, make sure they're EXACTLY 204,800 except the last one. Then right click "extract here" on the first one (001), and hopefully it will work.

I hope this helps someone!

I am using the free version. When I have downloaded them I can`t extract the files, even though there are all the right size. my 7-zip says that the data unexpectedly ends. Does anyone know what to do?

1) Install the NEWEST version of 7-Zip from here
2) Place this tool in your extraction folder
3) Ensure that all your file names are WHOLE as such:
promods-v200.7z.001
promods-v200.7z.002
promods-v200.7z.003
promods-v200.7z.004
promods-v200.7z.005
promods-v200.7z.006
4) Avoid DUPLICATES or files with other names such as:
promods-v200 (3).7z.001
5) Execute the self-extractor tool. It should unpack flawlessly.


(Note this is not valid for the PAID version, that should be extract per part (part1 followed by part2), manually from within the 7-Zip manager)
Thank you, it finnaly worked!

Best wishes to all Promods team

If the mod is correctly installed and enabled, the loading screens should show ProMods logo and content. Another way is to see a drastic drop in the percentage of map exploration. ;)

Tutorial here. And the same in Dutch.

Well, for starters you could start your own topic instead of piggy backing your question onto a thread which has [FIXED] in the title. :roll:

If your 7Zip version is current, either you're missing one of the files or your browser has somehow altered the name of the files (stuck an extra extention on the end or something of that nature).

went with the free version this time as i don't have a dollar in any accounts currently. all the files downloaded, however they were not winrar files. the file type is listed as 001 file, 002 file, 003 file, 004 file, 005 file, and 006 file. this is very frustrating. I've paid the dollar every time in the past, and that is the way i prefer. please help!!!

You must use 7zip instead of WinRAR.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.
No. 3 forum spammer!
