Downloads won't work

Discussion in 'Site Feedback & Support' started by jordangp, Dec 6, 2011.

  1. Ecstatic to read that the downloads are back up, however it will not let me download? Every time I try i get the VBulletin Message:

    Slow Down! You are trying to download files too quickly. You must wait XX seconds before you may download another file.

    After waiting the time, it just resets itself when I refresh, as it seems to think I'm continuously downloading things? I realise the server is unstable, but I just want to know why it is doing this, and whether it's the same for anyone else?
  2. I have the same problem.
    If you manage to click the Download button at the second the timer resets, you are allowed to download the file though.
    So after a little practice, I was able to dl all files I needed yesterday by getting into a one-minute-rhythm. ;)

    Dont use old browsers, download managers and dont double click :) Works fine here with each browser i tested (IE9, Chrome and FF)
  4. I use(d) the newest version of Chrome without any add-ons or plug-ins, yet I got this strange behaviour.
  5. Same problem, I can't download??????

  9. Sorry to say that downloads do not work for me at all :-(

    I tried to download a few mods for Dirt 3, and everytime I get a message saying:

    Not Found
    Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help.
    Example links:
    http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/dirt-3-misc-96/faster-menus-4881/ (from http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/wip-faster-menus.28940/)

    Can you try yourself to verify it is not just some problem on my side?
