Hi guys,

I have a problem. When people are connecting for the first time to our servers, they have to download some soundpacks and stuff (we regulate that, so we expect that behaviour).
But they also have to download about 10 maps, before they are able to play, while the server is not using those maps at the time of connecting.
Does anyone have a clue why this happens and how to prevent it?
The maps that people need to download are over 55 MB, so it is annoying and a lot of people disconnect early because of that reason.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Guuzz

Hello, I thought this behavior was because of 'Campagn' gametype, but I see your servers are in 'Votingmap' ... So, like you, I wait someone explains that cheers.gif

Hi all,

It is because some mappers put a ".campaign" in their "Maps".

By example in first i think to:

http://www.wolffiles.de/index.php?filebase&fid=784

http://www.wolffiles.de/index.php?filebase&fid=2919

But there is a lot of "Maps" in this case...

If you look into the "Maps" (who are downloaded without reason) for sure you can see in the folder "scripts" there is a ".campaign" and it is that who trigs the unwanted download.

On our server this kind of problems are fixed (since long time) because i clean up all the maps about this ".campaign" because as you say if a player download any maps (50 Mo and more for nothing) , it a loss of time and we are all OK with that cheers.gif .

I hope i have been clear :) , sorry for my poor english.

CS|kOoL.

Hi CS|kOoL,

Thanks for your reply.
The maps you are pointing to are indeed maps which are having those problems as an example.
I will try your solution and will let you know if it worked or not.

Thank you!

Regards,

Guuzz

Hi CS|kOoL,

You were right!
I deleted the .campaign files out of the scripts folder and our problem is solved.

Thanks a lot!

Regards,

Guuzz
