hi there I have been told my connection limit has been exceeded when I am only downloading 2 files furthermore I have been told if I try to get around this again it will result to a ban. this happens every time I try to downloaded the map. also I have no other browser open so am not downloading in another browser.
on the bright side awesome map.
Likely each download is using a few connections - we go by connections, not by total downloads. Just take it easy.

It seems you downloaded the ProMods Trailer and Company Pack (TCP) version 1.14 instead of the actual ProMods map 2.20 files.
The ProMods map download is broken into six 250MB downloads followed by a smaller one for the final part, if you are downloading the free version.

You may want to recheck the download page and make sure you click on the correct links this time.
The ProMods TCP is designed to work with the ProMods map, however.
Quite correct = silly bugger

I had downloaded all 7 parts scs files, the trailers pack and the test but only extracted the last 2. Still all well now and awaiting loading over to the right dir.

Thank you. KrysEmlyn

Hey guys,
Just a general question:
What do we need those 6 files for if we only extract the first one?

Thank you

You only need to open the first file; the archive program then recognizes the contents spanning all seven files.

Well, the extraction program you use (like 7zip) treats the 7 files as one big archive. That's why you need all the .00x files.

Hello,
So I've tried to download Pro-mods 2.20 and every time mess with 1 problem - the winrar file is corrupt :cry: . I tried to reinstall it 4 times but... The same! I don't know what could I do. I've searched in the web but the ''solutions'' aren't working for me. I've added a picture of the problem. So how can I fix it or is that even fixable?!
Yours faithfully.

Matiss

To elaborate:
001 contains the first 250MB of the archive.
002 has the next 250MB.
So on until there's no more file left.

They aren't six different archives, it's one big archive broken into six 250MB(ish) chunks.
Curry?! My manual doesn't have any data on curry... What's the meaning of this...?!

Did you download all the 7 parts of the file??
Did you try extracting using 7-zip???
