As the title suggests, what in the world does the imagename field in a .kv file mean? Is it literally the name of your .jpg? In all the custom kv files all I ever see is:

"imagename"	"map-dust2-overall"

What is even the file map-dust2-overall? Just a question out of curiosity...

    It's an image file found in "sharedlib.swf", which is an icon of the map when you select it in menu (for example, in OFFLINE WITH BOTS menu, or lobby and so on).
    And it's in .jpg format. But it's packed with other files in SWF.
