is there a way to avoid having to download soundpacks when i join a server?
this has been answered in many other threads, go into game settings and change "allow downloads" to "no", try getting the sound pack from a website like soffiles, will download quicker.

Check the server info to see if they have a website and download it from there. Or just turn downloads off. If its a pure server that makes you download a lot of things like soundpacks, skins and so on then find another server.
sysops who put soundpacks in the server should be dragged out and shot. the only thing you put in the server is the voicecmds.cfg and leave it to everyone whether they want to download them or not.

I 2nd that motion, load em up!
I don't necessarily agree.... I think putting a sound pack on a server is ok. But you don't need a thousand sounds. 40 maybe for the entertainment value, and not big ones either. you don't need to hear an entire movie when you play one friggin sound byte.
the sounds don't need to be in the server to work.
i realize that but if you want people to use your sounds they have to be there for download. or on your site. It helps with a themed server.
Right now i am working on a themed server for my site. A small sound pack will be on there but believe me, i remember when people wanted three hundred plus sounds, just ridiculous, not even ridiculous, REDUNKULOUS lol.
I dated a girl by that name, easy............lol:rofl:
