Remove parameter from file name

I am trying to download a website that has the habit to use @ parameters on their files
e.g.
www.foo.bar/foobar.exe@tid=33123123123
Offline Explorer downloads this file as foobar.exe@tid=33123123123
The problem is, this tid changes with every page load, and the file is linked in different places, so I end up with the same file multiple times just with different numbers at the end.
The parameter cannot be left out when accessing the file since it checks for the correct number I guess.
So how do I tell Offline Explorer to leave out the parameter when saving the file to disk and not download the same file multiple times?

You should use the Project Properties dialog - Parsing section, URL Substitutes feature. Add a rule:

URL:
*
Replace:
tid=*
With:
Keep this field empty

This would allow to remove that parameter. I would suggest to apply it to URLs. If it would not work, to Filenames.
