Hello, i try to get the new version but when i click on the link my virusprogram blocks it,,, i am not talking about the adfly but just direct the first page.
So its hard, if so not, to get it on the right way and hope you will have a other option in the near future so we can keep using the great mod of this team.
This is just your antivirus program by the looks. I'm counting thousands of successful downloads on the free download links. I don't have any other recommendation but to go back to using the built in antivirus that comes with Windows 10 as anything else frankly sucks and is a performance hog.

Well administrator, i knew it was my antivirus. I was able before to download 2.25 without any problem with the same system, now it seems the host where you place the files is blacklisted so thats why its not possible now anymore.

Hi Scul, i have downloaded paid version 3 time twice with windows and once through chrome, I am using two new copies of Win RAR and 7Zip, at least 6 attempts files are corrupted message comes up. so as you know i am not trying to waste your time, i downloaded and installed every version since ProMods started with no problems, so i know what to look for. Anyway i went through your check list and no change, corrupt files if you unpack them it ends up with either 3 or 4 files. Any ideas, i am not worried that the link will expire it is cheap to buy again. Regards Peter

Please don't be rude - we host it ourselves on our own servers... The problem is your Antivirus so either take my advice (and the advice of many professionals out there who say it is worthless) and just use Windows Defender or use our paid download link. Your Antivirus is issuing you a false positive. Nothing we can do about this, you need to help yourself. It is also incredibly worrying it is doing this as it is intercepting HTTPS (encrypted) traffic from your browser which should never happen, it is a massive security risk for you.

I can also see the amount of downloads and can safely say that 1000's of people have not had any issues downloading the mod via our free download service.

The archive is NOT corrupted. I've extracted this myself on all our download servers and compared the MD5 sums of each one of them to be sure. Please run the test tool on your files if you're grabbing them from the free download server - I've also verified the paid download and it, too is not corrupted. Extracted successfully using 7zip on Linux. Some Antivirus software corrupts downloads as they're being downloaded hence why it is important to check the MD5 sums to ensure you don't have a corrupted download. It is furthermore no-longer recommended by anyone to be running a third party antivirus software than that that comes with either Windows or Mac OSX as they do some pretty dodgy things.

Here is the MD5 sums of the free download files (I have checked this against all our servers even though I knew they were in sync):

Code: Select all

37fa537adb2844a759c05af6d34033f8  ./promods-v226.7z.001
27b553c88e23834a850ccbca53394e69  ./promods-v226.7z.002
98770d425834a61f851bf8c40f268db4  ./promods-v226.7z.003
0d740e5021439deea0e7aed1744a641b  ./promods-v226.7z.004
e93dacf199385246df763b0466f92766  ./promods-v226.7z.005
b7bf1cb8c8bd54c1cfb3e422f7277836  ./promods-v226.7z.006
1b1098c27cbb4a6d784a9f31c42530fa  ./promods-v226.7z.007
a33d1f85e99218dd7f207045cc4d9034  ./promods-v226-test.rar
And the extracted files:

Code: Select all

5a2405493bbd294ed664a9940e276b43  ./promods-model3-v226.scs
59a01a1c18bd6d821e441650b01766fc  ./readme.txt

Wow, when I went to download the free way, it took me to a site with porn.

Please, report it to adf.ly then. They don't allow this. It's not anything we can fix, and it shouldn't happen obviously.

Too the admin l who answered my post, Please read what i said, i always get the paid version, i do not care about your tests, i have two new versions of WinRAR and &Zip, at least 6 times it says they are corrupted, please do not call me a liar. Now why i am i posting, i have really had it with this forum and it's rude manner to folk. Now i get two unsolicited emails from you good folk asking me to update your program, now if you don't care and and only come up with this drivel, please remove me from your mailing lists. I have been with ProMods from day one, but your forum sickens me. . I do not want any emails from you folk anymore, i hope you understand , that as good as ProMods is , life goes on. Goodbye, regards Peter

Well, it's really sad that people can't think. If you're the only one with a problem, it means you're doing something wrong or your network connection is unstable or something. If somebody checks it for you and confirms it's working, many other users have no problems too, then... How can you even think the archive is corrupted? It either works for everybody or nobody. It's the same file...
