Cannot download maps on UK:CS Server 1

Postby Nooberise on Sat Jul 18, 2015 3:09 pm

Hi,

I've recently got back to playing CS:S after a few years and I usually play on UK:CS server 1.
I am encountering issues with joining the server due to missing maps, such as de_exile_b4, desert_atrocity and some others.
I have deleted the whole CS:S game, entered various commands in the console (according to what others have suggested) and neither resolves the issue that I am facing.

What I am wondering is - is this an issue with the server having missing maps? I say this as I don't face any issues with downloading maps when I join other (non UK:CS) servers.

Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can manually download CS:S maps so that I can add them to the maps folder?

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you don't have a map with the same name already on your machine, although I doubt that is the problem given.

Alternatively you need to speak to Evil Elmo.

what LD said. missing maps errors for me have always been resolved by deleting the downloaded versions and letting them download again. there used to be issues with download size that caused this error if the map size was larger than the default download size

Thanks both for replying.
As I've mentioned in the original post, I've deleted the whole game and reinstalled and I am still getting the error on server 1 and not other non-UKCS servers.

I'll give the IE browser thing another try. It was still giving me the error with IE as default and the proxy/LAN setting set to 'auto'.

Will reply again soon.

PM'd Evil Elmo.

Also tried downloading the maps on my Mac. Getting the same error there too even though I have not previously played on that machine before.

Actually, I missed that suggestion. Sorry.
Will try that now. What do I set it to?

Tried net_maxfilesize 999 and 99, no difference.

I have tried joining Server 2 which had a map that I've never played before and noticed in the console that it is showing the following:

Missing map maps/cs_oasthouse_v9.bsp, disconnecting
Host_Error: Map is missing


What does the 'Host_error: Map is missing' mean? Is it a host problem or is the host just telling me that I'm missing the map?

Are you getting the audio files and the images downloading when you try and connect to a server where your map is missing.


1. Make sure you have Internet Explorer on your computer.
2. Make sure Internet Explorer is your default browser. (Open IE > Tools > Internet Options > Programs > Click "make default".)
3. While you are still in the Internet Options box click the Connections tab.
4. Click LAN settings/proxy settings.
5. Click "Automatically detect settings".

Hi Elmo,

I've tried all that but it doesn't solve the issue.
I've manually downloaded a map (can't remember name) because I wasn't able to get it from UKCS - it tries to download the map files before attempting to download any of the resource files.
Once I've copied the map over to the map folder and joined the UKCS server, it downloads the resource files from the server successfully.

As mentioned previously, I don't have this issue with any other CSS servers other than on UKCS.

1/ Did you install to the default drive ?

You don't need internet explorer as your default browser, I never have, however there is no harm in trying everything.

You need to check your firewall settings in your router, to make sure it is not blocking Port 80, if it is then you will get the problem you have described.
This may help you if you are having problems http://portforward.com/
There are quite a number of tools including one that will check which ports you have open. There are also lots help files for many things including different routers.

If the port was not open, try again, otherwise do the following.

Start menu, select control panel, then click on Internet Options. This is the same as going through IE option, just more direct.
You will see a tab named connections, click on this, then down on the right you will see LAN settings.
This will open a dialog window. Normally Automatically detect settings will be unchecked. Check this but make sure that nothing else is checked.
Say OK then come back out of that.

Start up CS:S then go into the developer console.

When this screen appears type the following

clear
cl_downloadfilter all
cl_allowdownload 1

If this fails retry with

cl_downloadfilter nosounds
cl_allowdownload 1

I've managed to download the de_exile_b4 map from the server yesterday. I haven't made any changes to my system so no idea how or why I wasn't able to in the first place.
The only change I can think of is disabling blocking of adverts on my router.

This is why portforward is always a good option to use. Any settings in the router can then be left for security sake, with the correct port open for access.

Sorry for the random intrusion, but it seems I constantly have to download "de_boston" on #1 every single time I play it, even if I play it 3-4 times a day, any ideas LD?

That is a strange one, as the map has a code associated, which tells Valve if the map has been altered.

I can only assume that the code is not being read in that particular case. I will look into it though, although you could send Lurky a PM and ask him if he knows any reasons for this happening.

Possible cure : delete the map and any associated files then let it download a new version.

Lurky still shows up as being in that group and I don't know of anyone else that could help that is still around.

As far as I know there can only be a couple of reasons for that, and given that you don't have the problem with other maps, I can only assume it is something specific with that map.

Have a chat with Sadist who may know something about it.

Have you tried to delete it off your computer ?

The easiest way to make sure you have nothing hanging around, is to search on your drive with Steam on it, with the term de_boston and delete all the files shown.

This way you are sure that the downloaded version is new, and there is no remnant of the original, which may cause you problems.
