Cool! Does SAPP's map downloader not work?

It no longer does since he killed off his website, guess he was hosting his own repo or a mirror that fed off of hac2's?

Sehe maintained his own repo of maps he considered "good" or "worthwhile". He refused to consider maps he didn't like for various reasons.

 

When the HAC2 repo disappeared, there were no backups, and Btcc22 and Harbinger got Sehe to cough up his repo. I populated the new HAC2 repo with that list, and then started adding more maps as I caught failures in the logs.

 

At certain points in time, I scraped the entire H3 website, or other places I could find map packs. Then, I got a huge dump of over 5000+ maps from mihirgates, of which over 2000 maps were unique.

 

Now, we're at the point where the HAC2 repo has 5,687 maps for both PC and CE, including quite a few singleplayer maps as well.

 

TA DA... always remember to back up your stuff, people...

Do you have any errors from the halocded console?  That's the only way I can help. Otherwise it will do that if the command is not used right or map repo is being blocked by EGS.

I get this when attempting to use /repo (on my local sv)

LuaEventCallback >> OnEventCommand >> Lua Error: [string "map_download"]:136: attempt to concatenate global 'repo' (a nil value)
Unknown command: repo

 

When I use, map_download .zip command it downloads something and starts saving it in the specified path but it gets deleted as soon as the download finishes. however these results were on a local sv i have.

 

But in the egs  remote console all I get is  "Unknown command" :( (I guess there are errors but they dont show on the remote console)

Do you guys know of an alternative I could use to download maps directly from hac2's repo into an egs sv?
E:

heres the exact command I was trying to use btw:
map_download.zip http://download752.mediafire.com/my4yea672zcg/za4daia7akqpdmc/chamber.zip maps\chamber.map
(i tested with maps of the repo as well and same luck)
