    Hey it seems whenever i go to join a server that is running a custom map, like donner extended in Day of Defeat: Source, i download the map, and then when it goes to send client info, it stops loading and says something like this "your map [maps dod_donner_extended] Differs from the server's. Please re download and try again." This is very frustrating, seeing as i just downloaded the map from the server!!! Sometimes it does this, sometimes it doesn't. I have been able to download a few custom maps, but most of the time it gives me that error. Help Please!! I need these maps to play with my realism unit!! Thanks!

    It could be the server version itself. (i.e....with Rune v1.00 a conflict could happen with a German language v1.02 server. So the patch v1.01 would have to be downloaded and installed.

    Could be the same custom map that was slightly altered by a clan for their own use. This could cause a conflict in downloading. Or the server is in mid transfer into another rotation...right after you FINALLY downloaded the previous one.
