GMOD Players can't load maps


On my server when the map changes to a map a player hasn’t played before they can’t join the server. How do I fix this?

In my server.cfg file I already have in there:

sv_downloadurl “my fastdl url“
sv_allowupload 1
sv_allowdownload 1

Please help.

Does it tell them the map is missing? Also, change sv_allowdownload and upload to 0 and post your FastDL link.

I have been told that their loading bar just freezes

Can you post your FastDL link?


Your maps aren’t zipped in .bz2 format.

so if they were it should work?


I added the .bz2 files but it still didnt work. Do i need to delete the .bsp files for it to work?

It helps

when i delete the .bsp files i then cant even see the map in game to select to change to. Any other ideas?

did you just delete the maps off the game server?

Leave the .bsp files on your server, but not on the FastDL server. Make sure sv_allowdownload and sv_allowupload are set to 0.

Fixed. sv_allows need to be set as 1

No they don’t. You’re not using FastDL.
