RTCW doesn't support HTTP Downloads in-game. This is where this little application comes in handy. It's a lightweight tool, written in .NET that automatically closes down the game, downloads the map from HTTP and then reconnects you to the server you were playing on.
It works on all versions of RTCW, including 1.0, 1.33 and 1.4, as long as the in-game download system is enabled on both client and server.
================================ ===RTCW MAP DOWNLOADER README=== ================================ Version: 0.8 Date: December, 5 2008 Site: http://www.breezie.be/rtcw/mapdownloader Contact: email@example.com ================================ What?: This is an application that works together with the game 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein'. It automatically downloads missing custom maps for the game. Why?: Unfortunately RTCW does not support HTTP downloads. Downloading maps at 12kb/s takes way too much time. Thats where this app. comes in handy. How?: 1. Open the EXE file. 2. An icon will appear in your tray. 3. If a map is missing, RTCW will be shut down, the map will be downloaded and RTCW will restart. Requirements: - RTCW (1.0, 1.33 or 1.4) - .NET Framework 2.0 - Downloads must be enabled on both client and server (sv_allowdownload 1 & cl_allowdownload 1) Notes: - You can view a list of supported maps on the website. You can also add maps and download URL's. ================================ ========VERSION HISTORY========= ================================ 0.8: Changes: - Several memory improvements - Faster response time - Added posibility to cancel a download - Added download speed indication 0.7 PUBLIC BETA: Changes: - No need to set path to RtCW anymore, auto-detection if the game is running or not. - Memory improvements and bug fixes. - If a map is not in the database, RTCW map downloader will not close down the game but you will hear a "beep" sound and will let you continue download from the server. - RTCW map downloader starts minimized in tray (so you can easily load it with windows by putting a shortcut to it in your startup folder). - New Download / About window. - Force Administrator mode under Windows Vista because RTCW Map downloader doesn't work properly if run as a normal user. - Fixed bug where you were not reconnected to some servers when map had finished downloading. 0.6 PUBLIC BETA: First public release
