[bf1942] BF Conversion - Project AutoMap

Along these lines, is there anyway to dynamically load the maplist.con file?

Sometimes I want to change maps without the server running, and 
Rcon login
Rcon exec maplist.append blah gpm_cq 32
Rcon exec admin.nextmap 11
Rcon exec admin.runnextlevel

Is too much of a PITA to do all the time.

Anyway to clear and reload the maplist?  Or did I miss something obvious?

I don't think this will work. I am fairly certain the clients will
only download .bf2demo files, and even if you could convince them to
download other files, they would end up in the "Demos" folder.
