An unpure server is an unpure server. Meaning it's not pure and the client (you) doesn't need to have the same files as the server. I would say about 60% of servers are unpure (random guess...). You can usually see it's unpure by clicking the Server Info button and looking for the Cvar sv_pure. If it's set to 0 (i.e sv_pure 0) then it's unpure :beer:

Pure servers run stock skins and settings. Unpure servers allow you to use custom skins, mods etc etc.

This is considered cheating (abusing a bug in the sof2 engine)... many serveradmins ban you for this!

not strictly true a pure server can have custom skins mods etc. but you would need those files usually .pk3. the way to join a pure server is with downloads turned on. but it will dl at 5kb/s and that sucks best to see if they have a web site a most will offer the files for there server there. a pure server requires you to have exactly the same files that it is using. a unpure server doesnt so if you dont have a map or what ever you are missing. it will just kick you eg- unable to load examplemap.bsp

Not always wel atleast if you find server that have their rate at 90000 then you can download alot faster, Have my own server on rate 90000 and everyone is downloading with a speed up to 32kbps :eek:
