ALL_CS.RU - CS1.6 maps from GB redistributed there

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike 1.6

Looking for my own maps on the internet I found this site where the only completed map I have was uploaded without permission.
Despite the fact that they don't respect licences, they give credits (only in their very newer submissions) to the creators by putting the usernames in the submission (there are no links to the profile of the users so if the username is not very particular it may be hard to find).

In view of this I decided to make this thread so that other mappers of CS 1.6 can take a look at this site since I saw maps that I know from here - Gamebanana - on that site. Some of you could be interested about this.

Edit: I decided that I don't like what they do so I'm gonna send an e-mail. The download links of the stolen stuff are their own and they put files with self-advertising inside the folders. The less they can do is redirect the downloader to the original submission or the profile of the owner.



Edit 2: Here is the email that is provided in the contact info of the site: admin@all-cs.ru

Edit 3: s0nought mentioned another site where they stole content called "csru.ru". I found two old maps of mine, the credits say that the creator of everything is "admin" and the download files are filled with advertising.

    I think I missed something. Sorry if I don't explain myself well, but I understood the following:

    Did you look for your maps on the internet, then did you find that site where a subject published a map of yours, redirecting the download to gamebanana? Or does it just say something like "BlackSwordsman map"?

    This is a little bit worrying, but my files on that site is outdated, and/or repacked wrongly.

    I've checked one of my maps, the de_dust2_extended, and it looks like they have the 1.1 version. Starting from 1.2 and up, contains map and overview. I highly doubt that the site will update subs of each map, since it may be a one-man website control.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll be slowly modifying the license on existing subs.

    Looks like it is a bot that randomly reuploads maps onto this site, quite interesting find. Map files may even be spiced with malicious code so tread careful there. _

    I suggest you also check out csru.ru

    Had some issues with it back in 2011 (they modified my readme.txt)

    Had no experience with all-cs.ru, though.

    Thanks for the heads up. I updated my license. Please let me know what you think or if there is anything I should change.
