This FAQ explains NOTHING. I couldnt download anything for 4 hours after finishind downloading parts 3 and 4 and now after 6 hours Im blocked. Either fix it or add note that you can download 2 parts every 3-5 hours or something.

If your browser has a built-in download manager / accelerator or uses more than 1 thread for a download then you CAN NOT download 2 parts at the same time, just one.
The server is restricted based on the amount of threads.

Doesnt every browser have something like that? I used Opera and Firefox, both with same result, blocking me for hours.

I've used Google Chrome yesterday, and it indeed isn't able to download more then one part at once. Just wait until the other has finished, before starting the next one.
Sometimes they will tell you you can't download the part, even tough you aren't downloading anything.

Well, I had that too. I downloaded the files as following: 001, 002, 004, 003, 005, 007, 006. The order of downloading doesn't matter.. When you get the message only once, the blocking won't last for hours... It may do so, if you get the message a lot.

Hey ProMods community,

I would like to load your new version, but the website won't let me load one single file, because I reached the download limit. At least the website tells that. All I loaded yet was the Def data, that worked, but when I attempt to load part 1, I can't load anything, because of the limit. I need help :(

I could not download 2 instances of the new promods 2.31 from the start (only one by one) and now it is telling me this every time i want to DL part 6:

Image

As you can see on the screen there is no DL running. I am asking here, bc it says "further attempts will get you banned" so i want to be sure this will not happen before i proceed to try to DL ;)

greets

edit: ok i retried 15mins later and now it is working again. maybe had to do with high server usage (i've seen 97% or something like that, now it's back to 68%). i will leave this up in case other people experience the same.
