Players can't hear custom sound, only server host can?

I have a Gmod server, and I have custom sounds that users download through fastDL when they log into the server for the first time. The players say that the sounds download for them when they join the server, but for some reason, when the end round music plays or when someone used the playsound feature, only I can hear the sounds, and nobody else can, and I can’t figure out why.
If you are willing to help, please do, and make it a step-by-step tutorial if you wish, because I believe that will help me a lot. Thank you.

Strange.

Post your resource.AddFile file.



resource.AddFile( "sound/badger_different2.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/badger_doomsday.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/badger)donttase.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/badger_nation.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/badger_witchcraft.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/chickendance.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/forsure.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/fresh.mp3" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/gold.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/howro.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/hyperactive.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/iamverygood.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/obsession.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/ohshit.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/soccer.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/spherical.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/wtf.wav" )
resource.AddFile( "sound/wtfisthat.wav" )

That looks all good except for


resource.AddFile( "sound/badger)donttase.wav" )

Post your server.cfg.


// server name
\hostname "BearsVilleTTT"

// rcon password
rcon_password "TEST"

Your sv_downloadurl is invalid. Also, you really shouldn’t be using dropbox since it has bandwidth caps.

can you help me out and like, make it valid?

Get a webhost. Here’s a free one: http://www.000webhost.com/

but how is my sv_downloadurl invalid?

It doesn’t work. I click on the link and it’s a 404 page.

FastDL must have the same file structure as a GMod server. You can’t just throw everything into a single folder and expect it to magically work. And again, using dropbox for such purpose is a dumb idea.

what do you suggest then?

Put the files in the correct directories?

:T

I am the newest of newfags to the gmod server community. I think I will suggest to myself the Workshop as for FastDL, I believe that may be the easiest solution. Your view on this?

It’s a personal preferance. Just match the paths to what your put in your resource.AddFile file. All you have to do is put them in folders.

so it is possible to use dropbox if I can get the correct paths?

It’s usable, but it has bandwidth limits, so if you go past them, your account can be suspended.

aight, so will this work then?
