Description Alexander Mayfield 2010-09-21 01:48:45 UTC
Right now, wad downloading is rather slow.  I think it would be a lot nicer if Odamex could download WAD's from any HTTP source.

New variable:
sv_httpwaddownload

If true, the client will attempt to open a normal HTTP connection to the URL listed in sv_website + the wad name in question.  If found, it will download the file over HTTP.  If not, it will then continue on with attempting to download via sv_waddownload like normal.  Note that it will not try to reimplement wadseeker by searching for the wad anywhere, merely try the URL in sv_website and if it's not there give up.

Bonus feature:
Attempt to also find any file with .zip or other archive and extract the wad from the archive.
