For loading a mod like EOD, make sure the content check setting is off, as
for running plain old BF you've likely got it set on.

You're the man.  I cleared out the maplist and started fresh and that did
it.  Here's my next problem, I hope it's something obvious.  When I run
BF1942 maps, people can connect and everything's great.  But when I load up
EOD maps, the server runs fine (no errors in the logs) but when people go to
connect, they get dropped back to the desktop after 3/4 of the loading
screen.  No one can connect.  Thoughts? Thanks again.
