I noticed earlier that it ALWAYS uses downloads.tf2center.com as the link.



A simpler explanation:

Lobby Create -> Check downloads.tf2center.com for map file -> If exists, do nothing. If not, do -> Get sv_downloadurl from the server -> Create a request for sv_downloadurl + /maps/<map name>.bsp.bz2 or sv_downloadurl + /maps/<map name>.bsp, If either exists download to downloads.tf2center.com after verifying it is a valid bsp file (by reading the BSP header and map name from within)

We only set download url if it's not already set on the server. But we do need a way to keep the download server up to date with maps (currently I just grabbed all the ones I could find from various other places such as fakkelbrigade). 


I might get round to whipping up something minging in PHP to solve this as you suggested, i'm not sure how often this problem comes up in general though (to prioritise accordingly)?
