Can't download ANY file on this site, help!
« on: July 21, 2013, 09:23:26 AM »
Hello lovely people,

I'm sorry, it's my first message and had no idea where to ask this: am I the only one having trouble with downloads on this site?
I click "download": download starts, blocks at 9ko, then proceeds at 0.01ko/s, then stops after 1 or 2 minutes. (stops at 60ko).

I never had this problem before, only on this site.
I tried firefox and chrome, same issue with both.

Any idea?

I'm looking for both "unfinished business" mods. Would someone be kind enough and upload them on a file sharing website?

Thanks :)

Hi, welcome to PPG!

I've heard some reports from time to time, but mostly it works normally. I'll send your report to jcompton.
I would recommend you to try
- using a different browser;
- using a plugin like FlashGet to get your downloads done quickly.

Good luck!

If it doesn't help and today/tomorrow still doesn't get you a download, please, post here.

And, please, don't upload mods anywhere else - we'd prefer they were only available here, where their authors want them.

Thanks for your answer. Had a friend download it for me.
Even Jdownloader didn't help. As I said, I tried both firefox and chrome, and gave IE a try too, same issue.

I'm suspecting the router here, but it would be the first time ever this would cause trouble.
I never had any problem downloading files from anywhere...

I'm not going to upload it somewhere, it would have been a temporary solution.

Well, I can't download files from your website unless I bother someone I know and do it for me.

Understood. I dl'ed BG1 UB within a second with my Opera. I don't know if it's the server or firewalls or something else. Anyway, I alerted the forum admin; maybe he'll take a look.

It's nothing we're doing deliberately. It's possible that your IP is in a range that our server host has throttled for some reason or another. I'll inquire with them tomorrow.

I have the same issue.  Been trying to download for a few weeks figuring it was a website problem.  Using Comcast cable.. not aware of any download issues with other sites.

I'm really sorry to hear that. Thank you for letting us know.

(Now I really wonder what it is. Maybe Comcast doesn't like PPG because cmorgan is hosted there?)

FYI - I have Comcast's cable & internet.  No issues with downloading on my end.  Both unfinished business mods downloaded fine without issues.  Using Chrome. 

(Guess cmorgan is off the hook...)
