Players don't automatically DL new maps

9 posts in this topic

Hi there

I have downloaded the community maps from here: http://www.nomoreroominhell.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=10623 (Compiled lasdist of 1.07 communasasdasdity maps)

My problem is that when I changelevel to one of those, players are just kicked because they don't habe the map. (I remember that in CS the server automatically download dlls, maps, etc when the player didn't have them in their pcs). Is it there anyway to enable this? so that if the players doesn't have the map, they can just download it from the server?

Thanks in advanced!

Make sure you have a server.cfg and within it these cvars

sv_allowdownload 1

sv_allowupload 1

net_maxfilesize (Change this number to at least large enough to process the largest maps)

I recommend however that you invest in a Fast Download server, due to the sheer sizes of these maps you will have a horrid time with the limited download speed a server will allow on it's own, with a Fast DL speeds can be majorly increased and you can bzip2 files to compress them.

Yeah, I know, but I just wanted to do it the easy way, I mean, u get into the server and it just downlods the map. I don't know the ppl that joins our server so I can't actually tell them to go to a link and download the map (which mean I should also explain them where to past it and stuff).

Tried those commands: both "sv_allow..." were in 1 by default, and I changed the last one but still doesn't download them. Ideas? :/

Alright, here you go,

sv_downloadurl "http://frienemygaming.net/downloads/nmrih/public/nmrih/"

Add this to the downloads section of your server.cfg, place sv_allowdownloads 0 instead of 1.

This has all the maps from the list you posted in there, bzipped up, let me kow if you still have issues with downloading.

When you want to run custom files, be it maps, sounds, models, etc, you generally want to run what is referred to as a 'fast download'. This allows you to download a compressed file (much smaller than the regular map) from a source that should have some remarkably faster internet connection (normally a data-center). This is set inside the server config file via the convar "sv_downloadurl". If you are running a server from your own personal computer, you will probably want to purchase or try to find a free fast download. If you are purchasing a server from a dedicated provider, they should be able to provide you with one (either for free or for additional costs).

Great, thank you very much sir!

Not a problem! Just PM me if any of the maps get out of date or something, or you find new ones.

Maybe look in to a basic upload template with IP restrict tables. Meh, maybe, -totally a lazy little shit-
