    hey guys, recently gotten into kz and have been really enjoying playing on the servers with the likes of eightb0 and luanders but recently i havnt been able to download a good majority of the maps for some reason. i always get this error:

    SignalXWriteOpportunity(3)
    Downloading http://fastdl.houseofclimb.com/server/maps/kz_colors.bsp.bz2.
    Error downloading http://fastdl.houseofclimb.com/server/maps/kz_colors.bsp.bz2

    Error downloading http://fastdl.houseofclimb.com/server/maps/kz_colors.nav
    No pure server whitelist. sv_pure = 0
    Missing map maps/kz_colors.bsp, disconnecting


    Host_Error: Disconnected

    any ideas? and is there a list of the maps used on the servers, the ones in the workshop dont seem to work with the server, at least for me.

    thanks, payne.


    EDIT: so after spending around ten to fifteen minutes speaking to chuckles on this matter on the HoC#1 server i believe we found out a way around this and so far its worked with two other maps.


    when you get the above error of "missing maps" follow these steps.


    1. open your console, default is tidle ~ (left of the 1 on US keyboard)
    2. highlight this part of the error message: [size=78%]http://fastdl.houseofclimb.com/server/maps/kz_colors.bsp.bz2[/size]
    3.i find that you cant right click copy so use your keyboard command of CTRL+C
    4. paste this into your web browser (i use chrome)
    5. at this point the map should download but if you get the "404" error make sure you delete the period after "bz2" the console adds this and in your browser this will cause 404.
    6. at this point just drop this into your maps folder, this has worked with kz_colors and one other map which was a port of 1.6


    maybe this was stated before and i just misunderstood or something but chuckles helped me through this on server so many thanks, hopefully this works with all other maps and isn't just for a select few. if needed i could make a picture guide of this but really the key things is make sure you copy bz2 as thats the zipped file, if you dont copy this one you'll just get 404'd and the other key point is make sure theres no period after bz2 as that will get you 404'd as well.


    happy climbing

    Re: cant download maps

    I hope this issue is brought up or at least explained. By my understanding of the console output after CS fails to load the map it seems that the game can't download from the hosted servers yet this only effects certain maps (colors for example) hopefully a full map list will be published for our convienence

    Re: cant download maps

    thanks a ton. i've done some research and one of the possible fixes is to use internet explorer as your default browser but as im using a Mac at the moment i cant do that as i believe 2005 was the last time mac supported IE.

    just an update: after doing some intense googling i found somewhere that maps that have a .nav cause this error, not sure if its true but seems like it might be something worth looking into.

    Not sure if you got a fix or not. But sometimes if you download a map from a different server it causes a conflict with the HOC servers (or vice versa). Try deleting the map in your folders and then it will redownload next time you need to.

    Re: cant download maps

    the error im receiving doesnt actually let me download the maps, so they are never placed in my folders. i have all of the settings to allow downloading on such as download filter set to all (have tried nosound setting as well) and other CL or SV commands.

    I recommend downloading the maps you can't via web browser instead, at least until we can figure out why some users can't download them. It seems to be only a few players receiving this problem.

    For instance click this


    http://fastdl.houseofclimb.com/server/maps/kz_colors.bsp.bz2


    replace kz_colors.bsp.bz2 with the map you want


    Code:
    http://fastdl.houseofclimb.com/server/maps/[mapname].bsp.bz2
