I am looking to have a weapon mod pk3 to force download on our server. Initially I thought you just had to put zzz in front of the file name, but that is not the case. Any clue on how to do it?
Are you saying that when a player joins your server, the server would download a weapon mod to the players computer? If so, won't work, the player has to enable downloads. If your running a server side mod only than fine.. Thats just what I get from your post.
I dont think he means changing people's multiplayer options... I think he means that people must download the mod to join the server?? The problem with weapon and most mods is that its replacing stock names and items, if you dont download the mod files you still have the stock ones named the same which are already part of cod, so the download isnt forced. Ever noticed custom maps are force downloaded?? this is because the file e.g mycoolmap.bsp isnt part of cod but its running and being used on the server so it gets force downloaded. Run this with a mod and both will be forced. Another possible way around it is when your making the weapon mod make a new weapon name.. E.g m16_mp and make this file precache in the _teams.gsc .... That should also force a download. Basicaly if the server is using a new file name, be it a map or a weapon etc that isnt by default part of cod then it should force a download :D hope that helps ya
