Could someone please post how to set up the fast download on the fast download side. like do the files need to be compressed... what folders need to be in it and so on thanks
this is what is in my config file // Client Download Settings. (0=off/1=on) Used for MODS, Custom Maps //************************************************************ set sv_allowdownload "1" <-- ive tried 0 also //set sv_dl_maxRate "84000" //ReDirect client downloading Settings. set sv_wwwDownload "1" set sv_wwwDlDisconnected "1" set sv_wwwBaseURL "www.deathdealerclan.net/cod2" set cl_wwwDownload to "1"
With the current set up i get this error when i try to load a custom map
Error Couldn't Load maps/mp/mp_newvillers_center_v4.d3dbsp
2 different problems - one a http redirect one; the other an incorrect map file name, or non existing map.
1. First, Im only able to go on what worked for COD1 and UO, although I have consulted the patch 'readme':
# Create a folder on your webspace called 'main'. This should be inside your existing web folder 'cod2' - so the directory tree should be:
# place a copy of your custom map in that folder, and also one in your server's 'main' folder as well.
#Have these settings in your server config file:
/set sv_dl_maxRate "84000" set sv_wwwDownload "1" set sv_wwwDlDisconnected "1" set sv_wwwBaseURL "www.deathdealerclan.net/cod2/" set cl_wwwDownload to "1"
2. the error about unable to load the map stems from an incorrect map name or because the map isnt on the server, or in the clients copy of the game.
Open the map up with something like winrar, and look inside the nested folder structure: maps\mp
You will see the .d3dbsp file. That is the name of the map, and should be used in the map rotation cycle.
Make sure the map is both on the server and in your copy of the game (in the 'main' folder)
ok so on all the iwd files i need to extract out the images, maps, materials, mp, and soundalias and upload them on the fast download? and when u said "Make sure the map is both on the server and in your copy of the game (in the 'main' folder)" If im trying to download the map of the server why should it be in my main folder?
if u goto www.deathdealerclan.net/cod2/ and you can see if its setup correct or not
you dont 'extract' anything. If its a custom map, it will be in an iwd file. place that on the server and in the redirection space.
If a rotation cycle says to load a map which isnt on the download space, it will either try to download it from the server, or simply abort with an error message.
the second problem is either caused by the client not having the map (you will get a "cannot find mapname.d3dbsp"). This is why I said make sure you have a copy of the map and the server does as well.
When the rotation says for example mp_rhine, and the .d3dbsp file name is mp_rhine_v4.d3dbsp. In this case the map rotation should be mp_rhine_v4.
In other words the map rotation details must be an exact match for the map file name.
well it did work fine before the redirect was added. custom map loaded and people downloaded it off the server but at a very slow rate. soo we added the redirect and get that error
I have tried this.
// Allow Downloads from the Server set sv_allowdownload "1" set sv_wwwdownload "1" set sv_wwwbaseurl "www.nmcreations.org/COD2Server" set sv_wwwdldisconnect "1"
It doesnt work. It will still download all the files from the game server. If I add a "http://" before the "www.", it will show the link while connecting to the server, but it will just freeze right there and not do anything.
@ fsmdk - I just tried to enter that domain - www.nmcreations.org/COD2Server - and was told it was forbidden.
when using redirect, you must set public permissions for it.
@ capitan - Im getting really confused with your problem because I dont know if its a download problem or a map problem.
The error you quoted;
Couldn't Load maps/mp/mp_newvillers_center_v4.d3dbsp
Is not a redirect problem. the server is telling you it cant load a map - not that it cant download it.
Please re-read my first post.
my problem is fixed u dont have to worry about me anymore
I couldnt fix the permission thing. But, I made it link to the ftp, with the username and password. Now it works, it also replaces the user and pass of the ftp with a * while downloading the files. So no one can take your info.
