FastDL not downloading skins

Hi, I’m new here and i think this goes here, not sure though, so if does not, plz move it to where should be ^^
I have a Gmod TTT server, and I’ve setup a fastdl to download the addons and skins. So the problem is, the missing files for the addons have been downloaded, because before this we couldn’t see some icons for guns and now we can, but still users who haven’t subscribed to the skins in the workshop still cannot see the skins :frowning:

So, why some thing work and others just dont? Here are some screenshots of the files i’ve used

gmod-server.cfg

host where i’ve placed the fastdl

fastdl.lua in autorun/server folder

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

Remove the addon names from the AddFile paths; all paths should only start with materials, models, or sound.

I’ve changed it, but still doesnt work :confused:

The files on your download server are in BZ2 format, correct?

Yep

Post a console log from startup to joining your server.

And how can i get it? I have my server hosted in linux on a remote host, and i access it trough putty

No, your clientside console log.

This one is mine, joining with the addons subscribed in the workshop

Everything seems to be downloading correctly as per your AddFile code. Now, are you sure this is a FastDL issue and not a code issue with setting the skin?

Yes, because I and the users subscribed to the skin can see it. Also, it happens with every skin i upload, not just one

I have this issue, but with maps, materials, models etc. FastDL always used to work, but im not sure if garry broke something recently.

Maybe, an update came up a little ago, and cant tell how it worked before because i didnt use fastdl :3
Can anyone confirm its an update problem?

Long without posting or reading, but a few ago i found a solution for this. Instead of having the skins in .gma files inside server, now i have both extracted and comprimed in server and fastdl, and seem work perfectly. So, if anyone is still having this issue, here it is
