no, but you might not be able to connect to some servers due to sv_pure. If servers have pure mode off or on 1 (that only allow specific files to be used), you can play with custom content.

Sorry to elaborate but that is not clear (I do not even understand it and I am English)

If you install custom content and you try to join a server that has sv_pure 2 (pure server meaning custom content is not allowed) then depending on other options you will either get kicked or warned or at an extreme banned from that server. However if the server is not sv_pure 2 then you should be ok as long as sv_pure 1 is not used along with a pre-configured whitelist of disallowed files.

Trial and error is the key I am afraid. If your favorite server blocks you then you will need to remove the pack and try again.

Hope this helps :)

What on Earth are you talking about? Look things up before you spread misinformation.


sv_pure 1 uses a whitelist, anything not on that whitelist is blocked and gets reverted back to default content.

sv_pure 2 blocks all custom content and uses all default content from the DoD:S gcf file.

sv_pure DOES NOT and WILL NOT ban you for anything.

It will not ban you but depending on the server cfg it will kick you.

You would either get kicked or play with stock content.

I said warned or kicked - I'm aware that you will not become automatically banned however I am aware of cases of some admins banning people that have been kicked for using custom content hence the "in extreme conditions" so chill out dude! My post was still a lot clearer though thanks k bye ;)

If its an sv_pure server you cannot get in to get banned. You will receive an error upon connecting that you have violated sv_pure and which file caused the error.

yeah but that shows up in the logs......

( i did say twice that it would be an "extreme" case, i.e very unlikely to happen..)

Spreading misinformation like that hurts the custom community. No admin is going is to sift through server logs looking to ban people for custom content.

Read your previous post. You said ban...not just kick.


No, your post was not clearer. You don't even understand how sv_pure works. No custom content will get you banned or VAC banned unless it contains some sort of exe file.

This is what my DoD:S looks like ...and I've never been banned from a server.

Looks damn cool guver.

I played with a bit of those things, along with sound and the nade package once, but too many servers had sv_pure and I had to drop it.

Too bad, too, because it really does make the game looks better

I recommend that, looks fantastic and has some custom weapon models.

Thx for that. I installed everything in that pack except for player models(they prevent me from joining servers). I can join pretty much every server without a problem now. With this gfx pack and a sound pack I downloaded this game is even more awesome :)

Thx again to everyone for their help

Try the DoD:S VU as well, just don't install the HUD.

Guyver is absolutely correct; you will not be banned from a server for custom content. All worries about using custom content are without merit. The WORST thing that will happen is you will not be able to join a server IF the have PURE turned on.

Pretty much end of story.
