When you get the message that you are already downloading it is possible that your system is trying to open more than 1 download at the same time, please read the Free Download FAQ for reference

not that i know of it won't even show the box on where to save the download, however, it is working just now in Internet Explorer i am doing one download at a time but sometimes after the download is finished i need to wait for 5 to 10 min as i still get taken to You have been limited page, This is very first time i have used Internet Explorer on this PC so there is no Plugins or Extention running on that. just as a side note if i open steam or discord it goes right to the You have been limited page, even in IE.

Is it possible that you have an anti-virus program installed that is pre-checking the link when you click on it? Thereby opening two connections and hitting the limit?

no anti virus has been disabled and closed in task manager, I have went though everything in the Free Download FAQ that is why I am thinking it could be a possible problem at your end may even be an intermittent one with the server clearing IP Addresses when download connections have closed. I have not been on since about 3AM UK Time I have just tried to Download the Middle East Ad On pack still in IE and Anti Virus disabled and still getting the Download Limit page, it is now 12:10 PM in the UK.

Something is causing your browser to hammer our servers with requests - I can see multiple per second. Try something other than Chrome (eg - Firefox).

Don't you mean "Chrome multiple times and then Safari to test it once?" - you have not tried 4 different browsers...

As of right now I am adding the following:

If you get access denied, and you see our server load on the homepage is over 100% then wait! Our servers are indeed dealing with a large number of requests at this time.

This is a free ad-sponsored service. A paid option is available. Our servers (yes, plural) deal with multiple TB of traffic (each) daily.
