Nice words..
But what if you don't use any accelerator (like me), firewall and adblocker turned off and you still can't download anything. I try it via firefox or chrome browser and it ever ends with the "Connection limit exceeded" page
Yes, its a completely free download version. But also as free download at least the download should be possible -.-

I can tell you right now - according to the logs your IP address at-least was hitting the connection limit.

Hi Michael,

iam sorry to bother you, but iam getting the same error. And yes, i call it an Error, because iam neither using an accelerator or download anything. Ths might be an issue with the ISP. Iam using Vodafone/Kabeldeutschland. Maybe there is an acceleration tool woring on their side? i was able to retrieve party 1 to 3 yesterday after trying mutiple times.

I know this is purely my personal Problem: I will not create a paypal account to get acces to the fast download. I simply do not want to have it. It's a matter of principle regarding Paypal. I remember being able to pay via credit card, but that option no longer exists.

Any Germans using then same ISP experiencing the same problems?

Like I've said multiple times now - wait at-least 5 minutes as the servers will need to fully terminate your session before you can download again.
Welp, i waited till next day, still the same. :| :|

Looks like you both may be on an ISP that is doing CGNAT - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrier-grade_NAT - I can still see live sessions from your IP addresses.

There isn't really anything I can do here. Also PayPal do a guest checkout:

Hm well, it usually only happens with the full file in case the file gets corrupted during download.
Lots of things could cause this, intermittent internet connections, bad wifi, anti-virus messing with the file before it completes, etc.

Sorry but we can't help you without any more information.
Did you use the paid or the free download?
What is reporting the file is broken? 7zip?
