Yea, it does that to me.

When you click to download, watch the bottom of the screen to see if any writing comes up i.e. http://.....download... If it doesn't, press refresh or F5.

Or if that doesn't work, when it says action cancelled - press back and let it reload. Try it a few times - that always works for me Smile

I think theres a new "feature" on avsim. It now only allows 200 people at a time to download. This makes downloads quicker (Thank God) but reduce the chance of you getting a spot in line to download.

I hope someone can comfirm  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

That was a temporary emergency relief to counter the overload they were experiencing a few weeks ago and has AFAIK since been removed.

Avsim installed a completely new file server sunday, probably you tried to download something just as the changeover to the new machines happened which may have caused a short downtime while the new machine replaced the old on the network.

I hate a system where there are a limited number of slots to sign in on, like Flightsim.com, plain and simple, you just never get on!
