I think this i not how it should work. It says that I can download 2 files at the same time so I expect I can download 2 files at the same time and not waiting for 20 minutes until I can start downloading first file.

Hi. I receive following error when trying to download CAP.. I'm not attempting to get around any limit as I downloaded both map and trailers from payware resource. That's the only thing I tried to download free and can't do it.

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 200KB/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.

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!

Weird, I have no problem to download this. Try retrying to download it or wait until the free servers are less saturated.

@Trucker2223 has posted a link where says:

Code: Select all

Q: I can't start another download! I don't have 2 downloads running!
A: The Free Download service uses your IP to track what you're downloading along with some other magic. It is also based on connections and not "downloads" so if you've got a single download running that is using 2 connections back to our servers then you'll get blocked with attempting to start another download. You need to wait for your download to finish.

Q: I've been blocked from downloading with the "daym gurl" message!
A: In every case this has happened I've determined the user was using a download accelerator (not supported by any means) or had other downloads running. I have not found a single instance where a user was blocked outside of this. Please don't use any download accelerator and / or wait for your existing downloads to finish and try again after an hour. Note also, a warning page appears multiple times before this happens and if you see this then stop and wait.

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.
