Hello this may go for all games but, is there a character limit that anyone knows of for map names? I ran into a problem today with people not being able to download my map from my ftp, it starts to download gets half-way through and disconnects the clients:
As you can see it's missing the full .bsp.bz2, which lead to one conclusion that the map name is too long maybe? All the other versions worked which were shorter named, I've never ran across this before in all my years. I can download the map manually from the ftp and that works fine, but in-game it doesn't work.
For a quick test I'm going to rename the map by taking out the _final and see if it works then, a map name character limit is something all of us mappers should know, if there is one anyway..
Edit: I took out the _final and now it works and downloads, but there must be a name limit then, eh?
but it's a download issue from your FTP, not a in game downloading issue?
That's what I thought it was from, but it wasn't and all the file permissions were set, and any other map worked fine.
It had to be from a character limit. I counted and it seems it reads up to 34 characters, not including the necessary .bsp(4 chars) or .bsp.bz2(7 chars). So 27 characters is probably the maximum limit for a map name, which includes the .bsp.bz2.
