March 2014 Map and .wad file pack updates !

Post by Easykill on Sun Mar 02, 2014 2:16 pm

I am posting links to updated map packs.  Omni has signed off on this(in case anyone worries about whether this is legitimate or not).  There are two different map files. One file is maps that begin with a number or letters A through N.  The second is maps that begin with the letters O through Z. I did this to reduce the download size if people are looking for specific maps. As this is a snapshot of my game directory there may be a few maps that are not available on the botbusters server but this poses no problem. Also this is not a complete backup of every map that is or has been on the server.  It is a complete set of any maps that I have come across on the server in my multiple years of playing there. As far as I know I do not have any problems with any of the maps so hopefully this will resolve issues people are having with missing files, .wad errors,  or problems downloading maps from the server while in game.  

First and most IMPORTANT: If you are having problems with client errors with certain maps(such as security, troy, totalwar, tiger, canalzon, etc.) these issues are most probably a result of the .wad files not being downloaded properly since the steampipe update.  In most cases you probably already have properly downloaded the .bsp map files from the server.  If you have any such issues you should first download the wad.zip file, as I will describe below, and see if this resolves your problem. Only if it doesn't do you need to proceed to download the map pack files.


Note these files supercede the last map pack downloads found here, which are now obsolete:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following 2 map files should be unzipped and placed into your maps directory which is typically under

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life\tfc\maps\

If you installed Steam into something other than the default directory then you will need to find your steam directory and modify the above path accordingly.  



maps 1 through N (size 122 MB):

https://app.box.com/s/ofaoernfi9t6mzckhgpd

maps O through Z (size 96 MB) :

https://app.box.com/s/fadiw96wdzn3czwdbefj

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following wad files DO NOT go in the maps directory above. Instead they belong directly in the tfc base directory at

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life\tfc\

wad.zip (size 26 MB) :

https://app.box.com/s/393tl7adx3huv17yfiu2


If people have problems or notice that something is missing please post in this thread about it.
I am interested in feedback here as to whether it is resolving problems so please post with results.

Need to delete the old posting as it's showing up first which may mislead people to think it's the latest.

Two kids_in_the_hood.bsp files. One from 2000, the other from 2011. Which is the good, and which is the bad?

Maps O thru Z is busting, or taking forever to download. Not sure if it's volume of peeps/site, or botched file. Will try later.

"Need to delete the old posting as it's showing up first which may mislead people to think it's the latest."

That's why I put the map pack obsolete note on the thread description. There are still sound packs there and it wasn't my thread so I didn't want to delete it.

For the kids in the hood it doesn't matter. It should properly load what is needed.

People are downloading map O through Z so it is probably just a glitch.

I didn't note it because I didn't think it would get as much traffic as it has but we have already used about 10% of our monthly traffic usage for the files so please only download what you need to. The wad file should take care of most of the issues and should be tried first to see if it resolves any problems.

Your original post was not the first one. So you wouldn't see it unless you scrolled down, thus they would have not read your not saying the "original" first one was obsolete. This post has bumped up to first, so that point SHOULD be mute now.
Server's still lagging. You can tell because everyone's latency is higher than normal when frames start skipping. Someone said in the server earlier that it's under a DoS attack. Is that true? If so, that sux. Don't know if changing the IP will help or not. Sad

Let me know if the packs have resolved any issues you have had with not being able to play certain maps or getting wad errors.


edit:

Would really like feedback from people who have downloaded, and previously had problems, as to whether the problems have disappeared. If anyone is confused about anything or has questions about using the files please don't hesitate to ask.

Did you download both the wad.zip and the O through Z map pack zip file? Tiger requires the proper wad file.

Noticed I did not have Kandahar yesterday evening. Easykill, thanks for posting the reminder in game about the map pack downloads. I think I now have the complete set installed on my Mac. Thanks!
