Can't load xcsv hires textures


I try to load the hires texture pack xcsv with the latest textbuild of ioquake but it didnt work for me.
I placed the pk3 file in the baseq3 folder but nothing happens.

Is there an option or variable which can activate the mod?

Thanks for your reply,


Pure servers would probably disable it.

Are you using a test build?

Hello TimeDoctor,

what means pure servers? Is this an option to activate mods?

I use the latest test build.

Best regards,


Pure multiplayer servers attempt to disallow clients from loading pk3s that the pure server doesn’t have. This prevents, for example, cheaters from using a pk3 that changes every player’s skin to bright yellow so that they stand out. It would also prevent you from using xcsv textures if you connect to one and they don’t have it.
