How to limit number of simultaneous downloads
I'm on slow connection that does break sometimes and your installer just starts downloading 4 large files each 700+ mb and the connection broke in the middle so it had to start over, after like 2 hours of downloading, which is very frustrating. Is it possible to limit number of simultaneous downloads to just 1 ?

There is indeed.  You will need to launch the installer from the command-line:

java -DmaxParallelDownloads=1 -jar FreeSpaceOpenInstaller.jar
