You need to put the map in the base folder in your sof2 directory. If unsure always read the README that comes with the files.

All skins and maps that you download are custom skins which means if you create or join a server you will not be able to use them unless it is a non pure server. The correct place for the files are in the base folder and they should work unless the files are damaged. For character skins they will not show unless you are playing on a death match server that is non pure. To test your skins and maps, click create a server, change the gametype for the type of map you installed, select your new map from the list, click the next option at the top (not sure the name of the button at the moment), where it says pure servers, set it to no, make sure dedicated is set to no, click start server. You should then be taken into a lan game which you can walk around the map and see your new weapon skins.

all the maps im speaking about are down loadedf from soffiles.com i think its a pretty relieable source. installing the pk3 files isn't the hardest job in the world obviously and you said something about pure server ect. i was talking abou when your looking at the list of servers and it says the map that there playing on is e.g. mc_do (welcome to mcdonalds) i would choose that server knowing i had that pk3 in my base folder it would say unable to load map mc_do.pk3. n e ways my game workin now.

you need to go to your network settings inside the game in multiplayer and choose "yes" for allow downloads. this will automatically download maps, skins, and other needed items for a map you can't load. the download is usually 3kbs so allow a few minutes to let it download.
