Hello, I am attemting to download free packages of promods, but it only says "access denied". It says I have a maximum number of connections, even though I;m not downloading anything yet (it doesnt allow me to begin the first download, apart from the def file).
This is not what I am seeing - I am seeing you had started the first chunk of the download as well as another download hosted on our free download servers and both were successful requests (the download servers were indeed sending you data). You've also tried multiple web browsers. Please try with Chrome without using any download accelerators.
That was after inital problems. I somewhat got it to work, I have downloaded two files now using Internet explorer. It didn't work with Firefox or Chrome. In internet eplorer it still said "access denied" but the browser asked me to save the file regardless and downloaded it.

I downloaded the multi-parts archive 2 times without any accelerator, and 7zip sends me a message I could translate like that (I'm French) : "can't open [7z] file as archive."Does somebody have already faced this issue ? the previous versions worked fine. and yes, i click on the first part to extract.

Make sure all the file names are in sequence, all the files are complete, and all the files are in the same destination folder

You only get blocked when you abuse the servers. Disable download accelerators and try again.

You started the first download OK but then started a second download with what appears to be a download accelerator of which we don't allow. You hammered the servers with requests which caused them to block you. DO NOT use download accelerators.

I tried to download all 7 parts of the free download, but the 7th part didn't download. It gave, in the tab above, the message "Promods - access denied".
What do I have to do to get the 7th part. Without it the first 6 parts are useless.
Edit 1:Have the 7th part now, and done as the readme file told me, including the correct sequence of the modfiles.
But when I make a new profile and add the mods the program crashes on me.
Have to tell I also have the correct Rusmap and the correct def-file (in which you had to select you had the Rusmap).

Any suggestion on what to do next?

Edit 2:Installed Promods 2.5 without Rusmap, with the correct def-file. That worked. Thank you very much.
When Rusmap is added I get the error anew. Seems to me something is wrong with Rusmap v1.8, at least for me.

Hi, old Promods user is back, kinda.

Well, i tried to download this wonderful game addon, everything went smooth as silk until the file testing tool.
It loads correctly but i can't get it to open. Winrar gives me "The archive is either in unknown format or damaged" message.
I have tried to repair the file with Winrar's repair tool, but no dice. I have tried to re-download it about 10 times, no dice. I have tried different browser to download the file, no dice.
Can't open the test file with Winrar at all.

I'm out of ideas what to do next, i'm open to any suggestions.

Happy holidays from snowy Fin.

You don't need to have the test file. You can also see whether the files work by testing them in-game.
