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 200KB/sec per download thread in order to ease the load on our servers and to keep it fair for other people downloading.

This FAQ explains NOTHING. I couldnt download anything for 4 hours after finishind downloading parts 3 and 4 and now after 6 hours Im blocked. Either fix it or add note that you can download 2 parts every 3-5 hours or something.

If your browser has a built-in download manager / accelerator or uses more than 1 thread for a download then you CAN NOT download 2 parts at the same time, just one.
The server is restricted based on the amount of threads.

Doesnt every browser have something like that? I used Opera and Firefox, both with same result, blocking me for hours.

I've used Google Chrome yesterday, and it indeed isn't able to download more then one part at once. Just wait until the other has finished, before starting the next one.
Sometimes they will tell you you can't download the part, even tough you aren't downloading anything.

Well, I had that too. I downloaded the files as following: 001, 002, 004, 003, 005, 007, 006. The order of downloading doesn't matter.. When you get the message only once, the blocking won't last for hours... It may do so, if you get the message a lot.

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

Hey ProMods community,

I would like to load your new version, but the website won't let me load one single file, because I reached the download limit. At least the website tells that. All I loaded yet was the Def data, that worked, but when I attempt to load part 1, I can't load anything, because of the limit. I need help :(

I could not download 2 instances of the new promods 2.31 from the start (only one by one) and now it is telling me this every time i want to DL part 6:

As you can see on the screen there is no DL running. I am asking here, bc it says "further attempts will get you banned" so i want to be sure this will not happen before i proceed to try to DL ;)

greets

edit: ok i retried 15mins later and now it is working again. maybe had to do with high server usage (i've seen 97% or something like that, now it's back to 68%). i will leave this up in case other people experience the same.

Downloaded the Def file successfully but now any attempt to download anything else is giving the "connection limit exceeded" message. I don't have any other downloads running.

Edit: It's working now. Confused...
