View Full Version : Quick downloads for clients?
08-29-2006, 03:22 PM
How would i make it so when a client joins, they can download files around 500kb's within like 2 secs. I have seen it done on many servers but im not sure what they do, do they use ftp servers? if so, how do i make my server redirect the clients to download from a ftp server?

You have to have a website, im not sure if you can use ftp. But, ill try to give you a tutorial on how to do it if i remember correctly.
On your website, you create a folder named zp where you place all the files for maps models and all that like that the clients require to play.
Say your website is 'http://www.dfghj123.com/' then your url for the fastdownload cvar would/could be 'http://www.dfghj123.com/zp/'(Note: could be 'http://www.dfghj123.com/hlds/zp/ (http://www.dfghj123.com/)' just as long as you link it to the zp folder.)
Once you got your everything inside there and you are ready fore clients to download from it, you have to add sv_downloadurl "site here(yes, in quotations.)" to the server.cfg. Once that is all done then there should be fast downloads, as long as the connection to that url is fast.
