There might be some problems with maps that have spaces in the map name. Since web server replace space with other character and windows doesn't .

Map creators please don't use spaces in your map names. You can use _-, just not space.

And it won't help if i rename every file that has space in it.

I suppose I could do that, but the other problem would be if people have the original file in their folders. Then I'd have to change the name of the map in-game so it won't crash. I am, however, looking into making changes to the map anyway with the random spawns, so if I do then it'll definitely be re-released. Along with some other possible projects ;)

We found the same thing last week when trying to get the in-game downloads to work.

Web Basic's 101. No spaces.

Just because Microsoft says you can use 28 word titles doesn't make it a good practice.

I tell people all the time when getting their web pages set up to not use spaces. Makes life way easier.

Can you post your map_downloads.xml in here? Maybe there is an error in your file.

Can you make a compressed file of all the maps that would be stellar

Thnx

Lawnboy, there is almost 1GB of files in that directory, that is a bit too much. But you can download them all from our download section or GR.net download section.

But if you have some special maps in mind let me know.

I seem to have trouble getting the server to direct people to download files.

When i run the server no map_downloads.xml is created, so i copied the one from my game pc to the server and entered everthing manually. Cross checked it with the server of a clan mate of me ( everything looks the same) but no option to download the map when you join the server.

Did a clean install of the server, repeated the steps, but no luck.

Anyone any ideas

The OS where the server is running on is win2003

tnx in advance
