Your DownThemAll! and Browser Version and Language and Operating System

dTa! v3.0.8
Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit)
Windows 7 SP1, English

Expected Behavior

Feature 1: alternative download URL(s)
I'm in a special situation of batch download. The file extension of the files to be downloaded changes from png for some files to jpg for others.
So, when I use the following URL to download, some of tasks failed, and I have to manually replace the extensions and resume.[01:99]_i2.png

Would it be possible to add one option for alternative download URL(s), and dTa! use the alternative when the primary fails?
in my case, the alternative download URL would be[01:99]_i2.jpg to succeed.

Or, maybe an universal download URL with Regex-like gamma using brackets"()" can do the trick?

Feature 2: Interval option between download on the same server
It puts too much load onto the server when I continuously download, and the server sometimes crashes.

Would it possible to add one option so the next download starts only after xxx seconds after the completion of previous on same server. It would be better if the interval value could be a random number in the defined range.

Thank you
