Another idea: Why not host the promods files at google drive? It's fast, it's safe, It has 15 Gigs by default, only downside is, if the file gets downloaded way too much, google will disable it temporarly.

Make sure you have stable internet connection. Also we suggest you to not use any 3rd party download accelerator programs which may conflict with free download servers. Lastly make sure your firewall or anti-virus program don't block downloads.

The free download speed has been increased to 300kb/s - a further announcement will be made on the blog.

I can only download one file at a time, never had this problem before. On the other hand, download speed is now faster and we're no longer being pestered by that ad site (or so it seems on first sight), so thanks for the improvements. ;)

I can't even download 1. I've downloaded the def file. But when I try to download any of the free download pack archive (the main files), it says I have exceeded my connection limit. I have 0 things downloading. I have turned off and on my wifi, restarted my pc, tried different browsers, tried a different computer. Nothing.

@EliotMess Thanks, yes I have read this. As far as I'm aware, nothing is downloading on my computer from any source, although other computers on my internet might be, not sure. And my security hasn't flagged or blocked anything recently. I'll keep trying to download every so often in case it suddenly starts working

Nevermind. As if by magic, one minute I can't download, now it's letting me. Thanks anyway
