Can't download certain maps/sound/models--help requested
« on: November 28, 2015, 12:41:43 PM »
hey, Happy post-Thanksgiving! A few of the new airstrikes (flipper, 767) and maps are preventing me from connecting. Certain files won't download and it locks me out. Is it possible to add the following to the downloads area so I can get squared away?

-767 wav files (all)
-flipper wav file
-whatever is in the weapons/models/other folder

also, for some reason I can never connect to not quite dead simple. (marics_ds) It keeps saying I have the wrong version of the map.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Tim aka PrivatefcPyle

The map being played is prolly moded and wasn't renamed. Just go to your maps folder and delete the map marics_ds then reconnect to download the server version being played.

Hey PrivatefcPyle,
Sorry for the delay. It's really strange that you're not able to connect due to these files.
Can you tell me what quake2 client & OS you are using? Have you turned on your download options before reconnecting?
Before connecting/reconnecting (in console: reconnect), try setting all download options to yes in: multiplayer -> player setup -> download options




BTW all these files are there on the server and are downloading just fine for other players, it was tested with quake2.exe, q2pro.exe and r1q2.exe
To make it easier I've put together a zip package you can simply extract to your quake2 directory:

NEW FILES DOWNLOAD

http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/wodx2-update1.zip
(Make sure to double check that the sound and models folders from the zip file end up in your quake2/weapons folder)

New Files:

sound/misc/767a.wav
sound/misc/767b.wav
sound/misc/767c.wav
sound/misc/767d.wav
sound/misc/767e.wav
sound/misc/767f.wav
sound/misc/767g.wav
sound/misc/flipper.wav
sound/weapons/portal1.wav
sound/weapons/portal2.wav
sound/weapons/portal3.wav
sound/weapons/teslacannon.wav
sound/weapons/whale.wav
models/vehicles/767/tris3.md2
models/monsters/dolphin/tris.md2
models/weapons/g_q1ng/tris.md2
models/weapons/v_q1ng/tris.md2
models/monsters/whale/tris.md2
models/other/portal/tris.md2


Server Download Location: (Where your quake 2 client gets them from)
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/sound/weapons/
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/sound/misc/
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/models/other/portal/
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/models/monsters/dolphin/

http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/models/vehicles/767/
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/models/weapons/g_q1ng/
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/models/weapons/v_q1ng/

The map files you're referring to (and their modded versions) haven't changed:
06-Dec-2013 http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/marics_ds_kb.bsp
06-Dec-2013 http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/marics_ds_kb.bsp.override

06-Jul-2014 http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/sand_fort.bsp.override

All maps and files can be downloaded from here:
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/?C=M;O=D
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/

If you can't download the map files because the file version differs, just delete the map in question (or following), and reconnect:
quake2/weapons/maps/marics_ds_kb.bsp
quake2/weapons/maps/marics_ds_xmas.bsp
quake2/weapons/maps/kitsune_marsh.bsp   
quake2/weapons/maps/kitsune_palace_beta.bsp
quake2/weapons/maps/sand_fort.bsp

quake2/baseq2/maps/marics_ds_kb.bsp
quake2/baseq2/maps/marics_ds_xmas.bsp
quake2/baseq2/maps/kitsune_marsh.bsp   
quake2/baseq2/maps/kitsune_palace_beta.bsp
quake2/baseq2/maps/sand_fort.bsp

Alternatively in the future you can download the maps causing trouble directly at any time using your browser and replace them locally:
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/marics_ds_kb.bsp
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/marics_ds_xmas.bsp
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/kitsune_marsh.bsp   
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/kitsune_palace_beta.bsp
http://http.tastyspleen.net/~p1/quake2/weapons/maps/sand_fort.bsp

Let me know if that helps ;)
