prevent map loading that contains .campaign files on connect
would be nice to have a option that prevent the upload of map.pk3 files that contain .campaign files and are not running at the moment.
qcommon: do no longer reference pk3s with campaign files when gametype
is not campaign style refs #256
- Dedicated server admins have to do an additional restart when
switching to gametype 4 on the fly. Otherwise a required pk3 containing
a campaign file is not referenced on first map/game (only!).
- The CS for online games is shorter on average
- This change is preventing clients to download maps with .campaign
files on connect

Would it be a good idea to just skip the download of files containing a .campaign file, excepted if the file is necessary (current map, file in mod folder)?
In old days some mappers were putting this file in their map package to force people downloading it; this is kind of a bad practice
Also, if the server admin wants a package to be downloaded, why not just put the file in the mod folder instead of bloating the file and etmain?
