I need help setting up fastDL for workshop items
FastDL is a file distribution mirror over the http protocol. (Usually alot faster than WorkshopDL & ServerDL)
WorkshopDL distributes its files through the steam servers. (Faster than ServerDL)
ServerDL distribute the files directly from the server. (Really slow.)
Which one do you want?
The FastDL requires a web-server and a brain (A SHITLOAD of people have serious issues getting FastDL to work, and I’m not exaggerating).
WorkshopDL doesn’t require anything except a line of lua code in /lua/autorun/server.
By the way, instead of adding another FastDL issue thread on top of the thousands that already exists in this very section, do a search. I’m sure you will find exactly what you need help with. I’ve written so many quick tutorials on how to get a fastdl working that it’s not even fun anymore.
Well what ever seems better, I want
Select the one you find better, and search the forum for help with it.
A lot of people hate WorkshopDL because of its inefficiency and waste of space when they download, but it is easier to setup than FastDL.
Okay so can i have a tut on how to do fastdl please?
Next time google
Ignore the part of the tutorial where it talks about the cache. Otherwise, it’s perfect.
