Nope, this is wrong, at least the red part is wrong.
having both BSP files both on server and client doesn't mean both need to read, only the server reads and the client follows.
then explain me why the client needs to download the map at all if it is not being read. Dont argue if you lack knowledge in a specific subject.

simply to have it, You can't play a map that you don't have, right?
the client only reads the BSP file content when you load it using the "start server" or "map mapname (command)".

But you stated that client does not read it a few moments ago.

when you download a map from a server, you follow the server settings for that map, that's why people can edit maps using stripper without a need for the clients to redownload.

From what I've understood, I've made a little test.
- I've hosted my local Dedicated Server.
- Changed map to de_dust2 for the server.
- Went to my files (not the server's files, but my 'client' files), renamed de_dust2 to something else.
- Took another map i.e de_torn and renamed it to de_dust2.

Got in my server and guess what? A message appears after disconnecting me.
Code:
Your map [maps/de_dust2.bsp] differs from the server's.
Explain this to me.

You got me wrong, that's not what I meant by that.
the engine isn't too dumb to just accept that, here I'm giving you 2 de_dust2 bsp files, 1 is a pure untouched file and the other one is altered(protected)
Take the altered and place it in your client map folder & 'the other one to the server map folder, and join the server. (I don't think you need to do this since the pure will be just the same as u have in your server files)'
then try to run the altered file using this command "map mapname" for use the "new game" menu.

even if it renders for you, you can tell by comparing both files rendering and tell which file would be the actual map.

You're giving no valid explanation as to what has been done to alter the map, but still come up with concepts that defy logical thinking. What you said there means nothing to the fact that you've done something with the map. We cannot guarantee that what you're saying about whether the client reads his local BSP vs the server's BSP depending on whether he is using the map command or connecting to the server is true or false because we do not know what has been done to alter the map nor whether one of the map files are legit or not.

Why do we need to put the maps onto a fast download server then?
Delete the map from your client and set mp_download to 0 for yourself.
You won't be able to join the server.

Sorry, but you have no idea how that works.

I believe that he is only avoiding getting asked about what he did to the map file to protect it by spurting out the same thing over again with many missing pieces, confusing those who lack knowledge.
