I am hosting a server for ZPS but I can't figure how I enable custom maps downloaded from here.

Could someone tell me step-by-step how to enable custom maps when I am hosting a ZPS server on Windows? I see that when I download a maps from here, I get a .bsp file and nothing else. How do I get these customs maps added to my server's map rotation?

    It's been a while since I've had to deal with adding maps to a server, but I'm pretty sure there's a certain text file (either a script or something else) that you need to list the map in to have it appear in the server's map rotation after adding it into the server's map folder. Unfortunately, I can't remember the file that it needs to be added to, so someone else might be able to assist you further.
    Not as serious as you'd think.

    Yes, I added the map to the map rotation list (text file) but it doesn't appear during the rotation at all.

    Have you tried restarting the server yet? I'm assuming the map file(s) are in place already, so you should only need to restart the server for the updated map rotation list to take effect.

    Yes, I tried twice to restart the server with no luck. And I added the map files to the same place where all the other maps are for the server. I'm just guessing this might have something to do with the other stuff that the map needs, because all the default maps have other files with the same name as the map in some folders...
