I haven't been following this issue at all but I thought OFPWatch solved
this problem for OFP quite well..
something similar to this would probably go a long ways to fixing the
problem. Especially if it could be integrated into something like BBO

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it. I am amazed at how short
sided they are on the issue of custom maps. This is a broadband game.
What's a 50Meg file from a fast redirected server? I really wish they
would give us the ability to do this, then let us worry about the
I envisioned a system exactly how Unreal Tournament 2004 works. It
redirects to a web server, downloads the content and installs it, then
launches the game. Hell, I've downloaded mod content this way. It's
nothing to download 10Meg in a matter of a few seconds. Then again, Epic
was nice enough to give admins a simple to use Web interface to manage
their server without the need of silly tools and frameworks. I wonder
why no one else picked up on this.
Oh well, I have come up with another plan. It may not be autodownloads,
but I hope server admins will pick it up and run with it. More details
after I get everything worked out.
