For some reason the clients and me cannot download the map from my server. I have the .bsp placed in the maps folder and i have already bzipped it. I also added it to the fastdl already. I can’t figure out what the problem is.
Do you get any errors when trying to download it from the server? Like “Cannot download maps/example.bsp” (Or something along the lines of that). Or does the download progress bar make no progress?
join the server, post console output
How large is the map?
if it’s FastDL it doesn’t matter
I missed that detail… Sorry.
Nevermind i fixed by adding
that isn’t correct anyway, it caps at 64 and is for non-FastDL only
I always thought maps are not downloaded with FastDL.
Map downloading seems to be a feature common to all Source games.
And, knowing the effectiveness of VALVe software (coughHammercough*)*, I assumed it cannot be overrided.
so they would leave 20KB textures to be downloaded via HTTP, but 64MB+ maps to be downloaded at 20KB/s?
Because hammer has everything to do with source networking.
Not trying to bash you, just saying that’s a dumb association you’ve built. You’ve effectively associated cantaloupes and watermelons.
