not without a mod to do it.

With a mod, you can force the download (force the client dvar), but only after the player has connected, and then the map rotates to the next map. Then the "force" takes effect.

There is no way to force downloads on before or while they connect to the server. So, if their downloads are off, they still cant be forced to download a map or a mod until next map.

One way to tell the player they need to reconnect is to use a full-screen shader (image) which obscures them viewing the game. A message is displayed to them telling them to disconnect, and enable downloads before reconnecting again.

Once they get the download, they receive a transparent shader to replace the one that obscures their vision.

Admiral mod, Worms mod, and my mod all do this.
