I didn't make it!
Hey, I got a problem with my server it seems that when ever some one connects they download like 6 or so maps all in one go i was wondering if there is any way to change this as i would prefer that it downloaded only the map that was currently active. Thanks
Have you set it up as a http redirect? This is a feature of the patch 1.5 - it redirects players to your website for downloads. Its about 3 times faster, and doesn't cause the server to drain its resources. Just palce all your maps on your website, in a directory of their own.Then, basically, you just redirect your players to where the maps are stored example : say your website is www.ieatonions.com and say your maps are in a folder called onions, add this to your server cfg //HTTP Redirect Downloads set sv_wwwDownload 1 set sv_wwwDlDisconnected 1 set sv_wwwBaseURL "http://www.ieatonions.com/onions"" Turning on is "1", and off is "0". And, of course the critical one is BaseURL. Each time a player connects to your server on a particular custom map, the game will 'drop' them for download, then reconnect them to play it.
