Greetings from the Kid. The server isn't letting me download ANY mods released lately, either at A2Files or BCFiles. Also, I'm seeing the words "FastPass" in place of where the ads usually are. I tried logging out and it doesn't fix anything. Download attempts tell me that I have an "invalid session set", whatever that is. And I have no idea who to post to about this, because I have no idea if it's a problem specifically with my account or what. It's really just a huge problem and I don't want to have to "buddy up" with someone just so they can e-mail me new A2Files or BCFiles content. It's especially annoying with BC because (as far as I know) there's no second-site download available (Armada II has AFC, for example). Help?

It could be allot of things but my first guess is it's just a temporary problem that will resolve itself in time. I've gone to sites that worked fine one day and then give me trouble the next, then back to fine later. How long have you been having this problem and is it only with those 2 sites? Try downloading files from another site you know has worked in the past.

Ah, sorry to hear your having problems. The ads thing is something we are aware of, thats being worked on at the moment.

With the downloads issue, I am afraid that its an issue that needs to be resolved by the filefront staff instead of just us mere site staff. Could you please post your problem in the help centre (http://forums.filefront.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1272) and FF support will investigate it ASAP.

I see Inyri helped you with your troubles Kid.

You have to remember though, that most of the problems you encounter is mostly caused by maintanence. Also, alot of the time it is caused by the user's browser or the fact that they havent cleared their cookies or cache.

well my cache or cookies or browser didnt just cause the server to get about 45% of a file downloaded and then magically start me back at 0% out of now where..this happens mainly on the OCEANIA server and the german one..why do i use these instaed of the usa? cause the usa server wont allow downthemall to start a download..and if i cant use dta..then i wont download from ANY site..dta is faster than the browser.so i use it over the browser.anyway sucks ass to get 45% of a file then it just out of no where starts at 0% again..while you are actually looking at it no less! lol..

You need a download manager which saves your progress so you don't lose everything when a connection is restarted, especially if your on 56k because it must be rather painfull to keep having to restart.

dude DTA(called DownThemAll) is a file manager..best IMO which is a part of the firefox suite of plugins,etc..even while using it,the server does this mess with resetting a file.
