View Full Version : Fast Asset Downloading via FTP
12-19-2004, 01:17 PM
Ok I have fast asset download turned on
sv_downloadurl "http://etc etc etc.com"
When a custom map comes up, the server doesnt even let people download the .bsp file
What is going on?

You have to allow IIS to make .bsp vtf and so on downloadable by the mime-types.
You have to define new mime-types for every custom file which should be downloadable.

Ok I run 3 servers cs, cz, and css. All of them have fast download via my webserver www.aeplayground.com
works great on cs and cz if you join server and a file is on fast D/L then you get it fast if not you D/L it from server (slower but you get it .
On source server If downloadurl on and file is not on fast D/L(my webserver ) it says to client that they dont have map and kicks them .
Why dosnt it redirect them back to the server if file is not on FTP??? I only put big maps there and small ones I just let ppl get them from server. Well now I cant do that cause it wont redirect them back to server to get missing files!!!
when i set sv_downloadurl thru hlsw I get this
"sv_downloadurl" = "http://www.aeplayground.com/mysourcefiles" ( def. "" )
what is the def "" and how do I fix this stuff

( def. "" ) is default = "" Meaning blank, so it uses the server.
So if you want it to use server you use "" without a url in it.
It would be nice if it went back to server on it's own but it doesn't.

make ur webserver cleaner
sv_downloadurl "http://etc etc etc.com/server/"
then you make a server folder in your webserver ftp and add maps , materials, sound folder in there. And add the maps and materials in there correct folders and it will work

No help yet!!!
Like I said in above post I only want to put big maps on ftp and small 1s you get from server (like 1.6 downloadurl does)
But If I put in the download url on css and the map isnt there like pool day it will not send them back to server to get it.....
Plz Fix it works great in 1.6 and cz help

my suggestion? put ALL the maps on the ftp site so people always download fast. that makes it easier and faster. isnt that better?

Not if you are limited as to the amount of space you have on the web. My map folder alone is well over a gig in size.

I am trying to enable this with sounds, but it's not working.
I'm using mani's admin plugin and the sounds are in sound/admin_plugin, as this is not a default folder to the structure of cs : s, do you reckon this might be why?

As long as you make the directory structure the same on your web server as on your game server. They will download fine.
** Be sure you have .res files for your maps, or the server does not make the client download them. **
