[Public Beta] Fast Download System
This is a new system to use the Fast Download feature of Source Games. This script will automatic keep your Web Server up-to-date with the last version of the files, in compressed(bz2) version!

Well, normal Fast Download is easy to setup with a single server. But when you start to have multiple servers, it quickly becomes a mess. Also keeping all files up-to-date can be a pain in the ass, every time you upload a addon, or a new map. Especial with Garrysmod, because you will lose players if your addons is not up-to-date.

  • Can handle multiple servers on the same address. etc, more then one server can use
  • It automatic compress files to bz2 format
  • If the compression takes to long, you will get the normal file. (still on fast download)
  • Before it sends a compressed file it will make sure it is up-to-date, using a md5 hash
  • Only sends allowed file types.
  • Shares the catch between several servers.
  • If you access it with a normal browser you will get redirected.
  • Cache folder limit
  • Support Garrysmod Addons and Gamemodes

  • Written in ASP.NET
  • Run on the following Web Servers
    Mono Xsp (Cross platform light web server)
    IIS 7.0 (still need to get the config right)
    Apache with mod_mono (Not tested but should work)
  • Currently I am testing this my own system, on 5 servers.

Sounds promissing. But I do not find it hard. But I would like to test it, unfortunately I only run a single server atm.
Is this GMod only or all games?

Currently it should work for all games. Including the old hl games, and Left 4 Death.

The only problem atm, is if you got a addon with sounds, or other things that needs to be downloaded. (It is on the todo list)

Multi language.

Wasn't that, but I can't see how I should make it multi language, as there is no interface at all.
I through there were, sorry 8D

If you run a GSP I hope to god you know the difference between HL1 and Hl2...

But nevermind that...

This is nice, however since I run my fast downloads off the same box as all my game servers because my web server sucks... Its not useful, but for game server companies that want to offer fast downloads that are easy, this seems very functional.
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!
