For some reason Gem's server limits the download speed, so I can't get the modified pak6-patch088.pk3 used on the InstantGib CTF server. Can anybody provide it for me?

A modified pak6? I really hope they placed it in a mod folder and not in baseoa...

It uses a mod folder "ctf". Autodownload tries to put it in "baseoa", but I think you can put it in "ctf" without issue.

GeM has her modified pak6-patch088 file in the baseoa folder for downloads. It's been like this since nearly 2 years now. I'm not even sure if some people even know its not the regular pak6-patch088 file for the game.

well that's a very wrong way to modify the game since you're breaking checksums.  Anyone with that pak will not join other servers, etc

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

As a general rule, only maps should be added to baseoa folder. Other kinds of changes should be placed in specific mod folders. Messing with baseoa paks on a server may cause problems to players, e.g. when later playing offline. And stock pk3 files are not meant to be modified.
