dont think you can get any on the stock maps out (well it could be done but not sure about the safe/functionality part) to add custom maps just add the maps in the \main\ dir
i loaded the map on my server and put in the main folder but the server will still not load the map i tryed everything i could think of.

what is the map called? getting the name wrong is usually the biggest cause of map load failure.
Also, are you using a server config file? Or just typing the name of the map in console?
if the map is a custom one, and the creator did their job properly, it should show in the map list when you go to 'Start a New Server'. Try seeing if the map shows in there (the ones I did all have a previewer so you will see them no problem).
Also with these SP conversions, they dont work on all gametypes. make sure you dont pick a gametype that isnt supported by the map.
I would advise going to CODFiles and downloading a server config file maker. Then put all the maps you want in the map rotation cycle. Put this in your servers 'main' folder and boot up with the server with the config file.
To get the 'real' map name, you can open up a map IWD file in something like winrar and go to the folders maps\mp and see what the .d3dbsp file is called. THAT is the actual name of the map. Make sure when you call the map, you get that name right when you do.
