I think you can pay with credit card through PayPal.

Hey guys - this should be back online.

I can't fully test due to the crap internet here but from my initial tests it should work.

You must be using a download accelerator or similar, disable it

Think: if I can download the mod and you can't, then who/what is to blame? Only you. Not me, not the servers. Check using a different browser, different device, don't do it on WiFi, disable AdBlock and download accelerators... There's a lot to test yourself before you say that it doesn't work ;)
As you can see on our home page, our servers are at 80% load. That means many users are downloading the mod succesfully.
I tried it myself right now, just to be sure it works before I post:

If you say it doesn't work, you're only making a fool of yourself in the public and it won't help you download it, trust me ;)

We do log everything that goes on around here. I can see you attempted all of the downloads within a few minutes of each over. Since each connection is rate limited at 200kb/sec and you're allowed 2 connections total there is no way you could have downloaded all parts before attempting the other 4 downloads. I can also see the servers have legitimately directed you to the access denied page. I am pretty sure with the requests you were sending the servers you may have had your IP blocked also. Just honestly take it easy and if you're having problems with multiple downloads then WAIT until your existing downloads finish before attempting any more.

Again as lord Vøytek said look at the server load - people are clearly downloading it successfully. If you can't then it is simply a PEBCAK.

I've downloaded all the parts but five of them won't open. I've downloaded part 4 at least four times but it never opens. Even the test file won't open, have downloaded it twice. I've tried different zip programs. If I could use Paypal I would. Any suggestions, please?

Why would you open any other packages than the first one if you follow the tutorial, which I'm sure you've read?

The problem was that I couldn't open either the test package or the first file on my gaming PC. However, I downloaded and extracted everything on my other computer so everything is ok now. Both PCs have the same updated software so I have no idea why it worked on one PC and not the other. Thanks!
