I am simply downloading some ships right now, then I was going to download all the necessary things for them to work. BUT...just as I was about to leave my 7mb download is done...it only downloaded 500kb. It has done this on EVERYTHING I download from BCfiles. Basically it is pissing me off! I cannot download anything obviously, since it is way too small. What's the deal?

How are you downloading them? Through the File Freak Servers or through the p2p software? I find that some times I just need to get things via the servers and not p2p.

Also what sort of internet connection do you have? If its a 56k modem you might have interferance on your phone line which is causing your downloads to fail.

Well it was doing it from the servers. I tried the p2p and it worked for 3 downloads. Downloaded the MOD installer, knox's interpid, and the nova class. Now...to figure out how to get them into the game. The installer (BCMI i think), doesn't see the two mods....grr this is getting frustrating! Plus the p2p program wants to connect me to the net 24/7 so I had to go find it and delete it. Getting mods to work on BC is becoming a pain in the butt. I have 56k, from a local company, and it is actually pretty fast and very reliable, it's not on my end. Thanks for any help!

I would try the direct or proxy download. Recently, the direct download wouldn't connect for me at all but the proxy worked fine.
