Navigation File Download Blocker

Download | Source

This extension was made in order to remove bot navigation files (Example: "ctf_2fort.nav") from the download list of connecting clients. By default, all clients download the ".nav" files unless they already have the file for a particular map.

Current Version: 1.1

Changelog:
1.1 - Changed the .nav extension checking method. Updated windows gamedata.
1.0 - Initial release.

Does this work for other mods, too?

Edit: Wouldn't it be better to do:
Code:
size_t len = strlen(file);

if (len > 3 && stricmp(file + len - 4, ".nav") == 0)
So it wouldn't match if the .nav is in the middle of the path.

Why would it ever be in the middle of the path? It's not like you can have periods in the directory names. I mean, you can even look at the decompiled code of that function, and valve uses the same method.

THis is awesome i cant wait to try it out, ive been looking for this, since it saves a bit of time to just nav_generate and plop it onto the server, with out the clients worrying to about having to down load it xD

Chrisber is correct. You can put many extensions in a file, so you should check that the extension resides at the end of the string.

The decompiled code would show stricmp and check that the index is on the end of the string.
