My first step into gaming was Sof 1 (and Unreal tournament 1) , offcourse i bought the second sof , GREAT ! for the first year or so... then all the servers you tried to enter had something extra , so most of the time i had to wait about a hour or more , that's the reason i stopped with sof (ut 2004 has a very fast download!!why not with sof2??) . Every time i plan to play sof again , i know it's gonna be a waiting game . Does this annoy anyone else to? share your thougths on this please.

this is a on going issue with sof2. and one that will probably never be sorted out. i will say what i normally tell people who come here and complain about this, and that is this. first turn downloads off. second before joining a server look on the server info for a url. if there is one go there and get what you need. only other alterantive is wait, wait and wait some more. btw this is not really a problem more of a rant and rave

everything? woah. yea and when you're finished downloading and installing everything , a whole new wave of downloads has appeard , so you go back downloading and downloading and downloading ...... until your sof map is like 100 gig or more and new games are released and you deinstall sof. After a while you want to play again and you have to download everything again.... Ooo , The fun (sarcasm)

download everything on ff rofl. that is not the way to go. alot is obsolete now. download latest versions of all mods osp roc goldrush. download soffiles mappacks 1 2 and 3. download some of the most popular maps atm like poolside, css italy and a few others. but like i said most servers have a url so check there web site. most are good enought to offer a server mappack, soundpack and mod. you will save yourself alot of waiting this way.

There is a simple solution. If the file is big, then close down sof2 go onto soffiles and download it place in your base folder. Then restart sof2 and join the server again. (This method is only really effective with maps.)

Or you could develop a script for servers that redirect users to an ftp server to download the file. Which will speed up download time. Thats how ut2004 and Enemy Territory does it.
