Thanks for the info - that certainly explains it! Hope to see you on our [FOF] Clan UK Server again soon!

> That's because your server is pure. The additional soundfiles are installed outside a pk3-file. When a server is pure the client doesn't load any files outside of pk3-files.
> Since IN2TAGIB is basically a strictly serverside modification I had to do it this way because otherwise all players had to install the mod clientside. A bug of Elite Force forces a download of a serverside mod when either the server or client has download enabled.
> You can prevent this forced download only by putting all mod-files outside pk3 files. Then clients can connect on a pure or unpure server with a serverside mod without having to install the mod on their computers or download it from the server before entering a game.
