Everytime I join a server, I have to re-download everything that the server has, but the problem is it never actually downloads.


For example, when I join the GG server, before it says "Sending client info" I have to download all the sound wavs, but when I join the game, I don't hear the level up chime or level down chime, etc;


Anyone know how to fix this?





Solving riddles is lame,

maybe for a dancer,

but you put two and two,

you will get the answer.

I've got the same problem. Have to re-download "zombie ambient sound" (I guess that's the background noise of ZM) all the time and it never works. Not that I'm really complaining about it, it just annoys me a bit that I've to redownload it continuously.

The code to get around it is cl_downloadfilter "nosounds" in your console. or you could use my cfg. I used it for cal but its a couple of CFG's that i used all mixed together all legal. to use it you have to save the text to a notepad and save it in your steam/steamapps/yourlogin/css/cstrike/cfg folder and name it autoexec.cfg or you can just save the below in that folder and name it autoexec.cfg and you just wont get the sounds ;D

Yeah mine goes by really fast, but it gets really annoying having it downloading everything again then letting me join. Even though it adds on like 3 or 4 seconds onto the loading time, that's the difference between playing a round or waiting one out.
