    Server Redirection refuses Downloading

    Hi!

    ich have setup Redirection on my UT2004 Linux Server.
    Works fine with custom maps. But it seems that it won`t work on some specual maps like the new released ONS-Aridoom and ONS-Ascendancy.

    The Server iss refusing the download.
    The Client says "Connetion failed Downloading ┬┤ONS-Aridoom` not allowed.

    I set the accessright for the file on the http server to 777, manual downloading via webbrowser works.

    Did the UT2004 Server got any protection that refuses redirection for a Official map??

    If yes, it sux. Is there any clue?

    Server is here -> 213.239.193.107:28000
    WebRedirection goes here -> http://213.239.193.107/maps/

    Would be great if anybody can help.

    It seems that the "DO NOT ALLOW REDIRECT DOWNLOAD* bit is enabled on those maps.. I wonder if one can reset that bit somehow.

        Yes......... you can not redirect an Official map.

          I've written a tiny command line program to change a maps flags/bits. It will easily let you remove the "Official" bit which is stopping these new maps from being pushable.

          Luckily changing the flags doesnt cause mismatches. Which means if the server has the bit unset and the client has it set (or visa versa), they will still be able to play normally without having to download it again.

          Download the windows binary here
          utmapflagger.zip

          Full source is also included which should compile on windows, linux or mac.

              These are not official maps IMHO - official maps shipped with the game.

              The authors may have worked on official retail maps, but that does not entitle them to label these new releases as 'official'.

                    I think I'm well aware of that. :-)

                      I can't get this to work.

                      C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>C:\UT2004\System\utmapflagg er.exe --Official=off ONS-Aridoom.ut2

                      C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>C:\UT2004\System\utmapflagg er.exe --Official=off ONS-Aridoom.ut2
                      C:\UT2004\System\utmapflagger.exe: Unknown options: "ONS-Aridoom.ut2"

                        Make sure you have the path of the Map in there too, unless its in your current directory.
                        Or simply run it with no flags to see options.

                          ok ya this worked like this

                          C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>C:\utmapflagger.exe --Official=off C:\ON
                          S-Aridoom.ut2

                          Oddly I had to tell it the location of the map even thoug they were in the same dir. Heh, the problem now is can't delete mapflagger out of C:\

                          It gives me file in use and shows as 0 KB. Nothing to shut down in task manager. guess I'll try a reboot

                              Someone removed the "official" flag from these maps so that they can be downloaded from servers and redirects.

                              NOTE: These *DO NOT* create version mismatches. They are 100% compatible with users who have installed the original files. There is no need to rename them.
