I’m looking for some advice on forced downloads, I’ve encountered an issue I just can’t seem to resolve after a couple of days.
The issue seems to be that the server isn’t running the lua file to know its supposed to make the clients download the files listed in it.
I first set the forced downloads up from memory, then went to the wiki here:
I also re-read several other resources on the subject including some threads here. I’m nearly certain its configured properly but I’ll explain how its set up here.
I have my forceddownloads.lua in my “garrysmod/lua/autorun/server” directory.
Here is an excerpt from the file itself, the first few lines.
resource.AddSingleFile( "/models/BioPolice.dx80.vtx.bz2" ) resource.AddSingleFile( "/models/BioPolice.dx90.vtx.bz2" ) resource.AddSingleFile( "/models/biopolice.mdl.bz2" ) resource.AddSingleFile( "/models/BioPolice.phy.bz2" )
