    Description
    - Loading files during map transition
    - No black screen when loading files during map change

    Note
    - This plugin has passed a lot of tests from different people and still we could not fix 1 bug. When loading custom models, there is a chance that the player will have to restart the game for him to see this model
    - Also if you want some files to stay in the table and be uploaded when the player connects, then you can create restrict_strings.cfg in the data folder and add the files there
    - If you have any problems with the plugin, please unsubscribe below
    - The plugin was tested only in Left 4 Dead 2, but in Left 4 Dead 1 it should also work

    Required
    - [L4D2] Stringtable Control to plugin work

    Cmds
    sm_get_restricted_strings - to get all list of strings from cfg which doesn't affect by this plugin.
    sm_restore_st - Restore downloadables stringtable items

    Credits
    - Dragokas for original idea and his plugin

    I assume you need a separate web host for the players to download from?

    Or can this plugin allow players to download directly from the dedicated server itself?

    this plugin works automatically, it completely removes the download of files to players during the connection and restores the download of files during map transition

    Thus removing the black screen problem.
    Web host will still be needed

    You'll still need to make AddFileToDownloadsTable so players can download the files.
