Help this poor soul fix the Missing Map Error
I am looking to solve the infamous ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½Missing MapÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ error. I am running a CS:S through Steam on my Mac. So far, not too many issues, except for this missing map problem. HereÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s what I have tried so farÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã‚Â¦.
1) Console Commands: (Failed)
> cl_allowupload 1
> cl_alldownload 1
> cl_downloadfilter nosounds/all (both options donÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t work)
> net_maxfilesize 64 (I have no idea if that is a good number, other people use it)
I believe sv_downloadurl is only for people who are ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½hostingÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ servers, please correct me if I am wrong.
Side question, do the console settings reset themselves after I close CS:S and Steam or do those settings remain even after shutdown?
2) File Clean-Up: (Failed)
> Deleted cstrike/cache folder
> Deleted cstrike/download folder
3) In-Game Settings: (Failed)
> Options ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ Multiplayer ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ select ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½all custom files from serverÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½
4) Manual Map Install (only method that sometimes works)
> Choose a server that I want to play in- Memorize name of map currently being played in server- Minimize game- search web for example_map.zip- download example_map.zip- drag example_map.bzp and example_map.nav into cstrike/maps folder- maximize game- rejoin server- game on!
If you thought reading those steps were annoying to read then try doing that every time the server that you want to play in changes maps!
Those are the methods that I have tried with limited success. I am mentally preparing myself to reinstall CS:S and Steam. If I do this, what type of unintended consequences should I expect? Am I going to lose any important information? Will I be forced to purchase CS:S and other Steam games again?
I have seen many many many forums regarding this problem. I have compiled and attempted all reasonable solutions here. Please inform me of any fixes.
Thanks to all
