Hello Sylvantino,

I have put more bandwidth to our server today, please try again now.

By the way on Monday I have an appointment at the data-center were our servers are hosted, I will ask for even more bandwidth so at peak time we can still serve high speed.

Thank you

Erik

I'm posting as a user, and not a moderator, but I've never had a problem with the download speeds from Rikoooo.

went for the osprey , it only took 26 hours and opened up an empty file, went a second time 12hrs 45 minutes to an empty file, then went and did the only one that worked and then there was a note by the creator on install about the admin install, to clarify, usually when referring to a manatory install in order to use a product its thry the menu and privledges or thry a click and run, the confusion is this, it has nothing to do with the file, you must run the MS flight simulator in the administrator mode with a right click and then the product will load. If done otherwise it will cause multiple crashes and or freeze of screen. I did research, why it was ever a command line to use the admin in order to use the program. Of the thousands of add ons in the way of aircraft this is the only one that ended up controlling my cfg. file, i went in and saw the multiple listings. Theres also a danger in this configuration and if there is a glitch it could ruin the windows program. If you do the download make a backup of your file cfg before the install. The file location is as such %APPDATA%MICROSOFT/FSX. tHE DOWNLOADED AIROLANE IS THE VERY BEST IVE SEEN IN TEN YEARS OF THIS MODEL AND TYPE, FLYABILITY IS PERFECT, IT MAY TAKE A LITTLE GETTING USED TO ESPECIALLY ATTEMPTING TO SLIDE OR TOGGLE ANYTHING ON THE UPPER CONSOLE.Which just happens to be necessary to start and fly, but itll all work out. Yoy wont be disapointed once you realize that all you have to do is click on the admin to run as administrator, and bling. Other than that and attempting any other way will be a tough time to deal with ESPECIALLY if you have waited 24 hrs for an empty download. Still the best site with the best add ons bar none.

you need to go into youre computer menu to internet and change your homepage to rikoooo, if you do that the file will be at the front, and check your internet settings if youre not using PPOE(have to use a password to enter the internet) change it to the other option. One of the main points of contension for a computer is having it routed to the internet thru a wrong portal, i use local internet sometimes and im on the East coast in the Mid atlantic region and sometimes its slow due to the amount of downloads that are being processed by servers. Also check youre clock, if your in the U.S. odds are your attempting a download when everyone in Europe is at the peak of their day. Catch them in the late evening their time. Check out those settings, and if you want to speed up your computer over 200% write in, if i see it ill tell you what to do.
