Default Download x number of files from each set?

I have a number of sets in Downloads, each set containing a number of files to be downloaded. I was wondering if there is a way to download a specific number of files *only* from each set and then move to the next set, for example, I want to download 2 files from each set:

set#1 - # of files contained = 10 - # of downloaded files = 2
set#2 - # of files contained = 103 - # of downloaded files = 2
set#3 - # of files contained = 85 - # of downloaded files = 2

The intention of this process is to sample the files before downloading the whole set, which could take a long time.

Preferably, I am looking for a simple way to do this without programming, just a setting. If this is not possible, then programming

Not possible using any existing settings. You will have to temporarily skip or disable the other links, either manually or automatically (using eventscripter).

You could disable the whole package and then enable only the first 2 links either manually or use a script (ask @mgpai for help/hints) that enables them for you.
