Thats just because you have downloaded a version of a map that is probably
old (maybe on a different server?).. It is the map makers fault for not
putting version numbers in the map name I suppose. All you have to do is
find the name of the map that is causing the problem, delete it in your
steam folder, and then go back to the server and download it!

Hope that helps,

I did that. About 15 times for 4 maps. This was discovered on CF's
server with the Rats maps, of which one of the 4 worked. I find it also
happens on several other servers I tried. Yes, I deleted all files with
the map name, .BSP, .AIN, .CACHE It takes several minutes to DL a map
from the server, and a few seconds to DL maps from FileFront. Yet some
maps worked and others didn't from FileFront. Yet, I still got better
results using a ton of downloaded files from FileFront.

IF you do use the server to dl a fresh map, then why would the game
still say the versions are different?

Hello Peter,

I go to get into CF's server and play those cool Rats maps. So, I don't
have any installed, and immediately the client starts dl'ing the map
from the server. A few minutes later, an error dialog pops up with that
message DISCONNECTED. "Your version of "dm\dm_bathroom.bsp" differs
from servers"
And that's the end of being in that server! Of the 4 maps, only one of
the server downloads worked, and that was dm_rats_2005.bsp Thing is,
I find this happening a LOT on various other servers afterward.
So I got a bunch of files from FileFronts HL2 section. Some of them
worked, some don't. I did get two other maps (CF used 5, not 4 last
night) for a total of 3 that worked in his server. Still, the only one
that worked that was downloaded direct from his server was
dm_rats_2005.bsp!
It's also frustrating to sit and wait for a small file of less than 10
megs to dl in several minutes when you're used to getting a 5 meg file
in a second :(
We need better access to the current maps in the rotations.

But really, I'd love to know why the version I downloaded from the
server is different from the one on that server.

McG.

Servers limit the amount of bandwidth used to DL maps so as not to
disrupt the game for players already logged on.... Why you're having
the problem you describe is a mystery to me.... If you DL a map from
my server it should work on my server... People change the names of
maps, removing the beta versions for example, which cause problems
going from server to server....

I think the only one in your rotation I might not have working now is
dm_rats_living.bsp, but don't know for sure as it didn't cycle to it
while I was in a while ago. It really is an odd thing to download the
full map from a server and then can't play because it's a different
version, and it's the same map.
dm_bathroom.bsp was downloaded from your server, and it didn't work. So
I deleted the .bsp and put the one in I got from filefront but with the
..ain graph from your server. It worked. I don't know why the one I
downloaded from your server didn't, date is the same, byte count the
same.
I even tried killing TrojanHunterGuard and ZAP and AVG7, just going
through the LinkSys BEFSR41 router when downloading the map. Didn't
help. Same thing with 'bathroom'. Well, I'm gonna go eat, then get
back in and see if the Living Room comes up in rotation :)

Btw came to think of it

Clearing the download folders on the server can sometimes fix the
problem

Folderlist:
...\half-life 2 deathmatch\hl2mp\DownloadLists
...\half-life 2 deathmatch\hl2mp\Downloads

Only problem is that you manually must copy text to quote (forgot that)
GG has changed a little within the past few months (IIRC)

You have the main page with the 10 newest articles and a right section
with 10 old but active articles
In OE I needed to scroll up and down in the list just to find some
crazy crossposting

I might miss a lot of stuff, but at least I don't get frustrated
By time I even might consider replacing OE with something else
Though I like OE as I can hold my private email accounts
(gmail/hotmail) with the various NG's within the same program

:)

Why? How much upwidth have you got? I've been getting truly shite pings
from your server. (Not that its stopped me playing...)

Of course, the Atlantic is part of the problem...

Setting bandwidth usage limits automatically?
Server admin has the option to set references to another (fast)
download location, like a ftp-site etc

Beats me, I got two maps from the server, both worked right out of the
box
But with a ping ~ 600 on the server it's not close to being fun as
you're not able to fight back just a little

Back in the old days IIRC you were able to join server overseas, or?

In the Server finder, his maps would show up to 2000 for latency, but
when I got in the maps proper, I was the lowest pinger of the bunch,
usually from 38-79.

The next version is supposed to be getting multiple account support,
although I don't use it for mail, only for Usenet.

Yeah, but I have 4 different NG accounts now. I don't want to give any
of them up. So I use Agent for all the big stuff and binary ng's. I'm
looking forward to the new version.

I can't for the life of me see why you use OE for text groups when
Agent is light years ahead, but whatever floats your boat :)

Heh - I have a meg. How much of a PC do you need for a HL2 server?

Thank ya'll for showing up for the bash today... rat and I had a good
time... That's the last one I'll offer to host...

Ya don't need much... I use a 2 gig chip with 512 MB ram... Nothing
else matters for the server... You could probably use a slower CPU
than that.... I ran the HL server with an 800.... Didn't run any
better with the 2 gig....

Gah! I completely forgot about the bash! Today is a bank holiday so I
headed down to the pub yesterday evening, completely forgetting that
there may have been a bash...
