GMod FastDL not working
Alright I've set up a GMod server through srcds

This is my start batch file
@echo off
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Valve\HLServer\games\orangebox
echo Starting game server.
echo Beginning "Garry's Mod"
srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod -port 27015 +map gm_construct +maxplayers 16
echo "Garry's Mod" has now started.
echo It is recommended that you start Server Crash Recovery aswell.

This is my server.cfg
hostname GMod constructing server
rcon_password faggot

The url works, and i can download as well.
It always downloads from the server (srcds) not the fastdl.
When i start the server
despite my server.cfg being setup,
sv_downloadurl is always set as ""
I change it to that http url, but it still downloads from the server, and not from the filehost(x90x).
what do i do?.. somebody help me please.
Yes, I have legit GMod.
Try using setting the sv_downloadurl with quotations:
sv_downloadurl ""
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!

alright i think that solved the url being reset at start every time but
if i type
it shows "" and then next to it it says def "" which means its not defined as that URL?... downloads still occur through server and not fastDL webhost...

def means default, not defined.

Alright, I've tested by putting only the bsp of a map in the server and a bsp and bz2 of a map on the webhost, and it downloaded the bz2, so FastDL is working, THANK YOU!

Though there are some weird things like the cache file despite only being 100kbs, taking over 10 seconds to download... but all is well.

Now if i had a problem with the ulx admin setup i have, would i need to start another thread?
Lonewolf, glad you got the help you needed and good job fixing it. Please edit your original Post and add [RESOLVED] to the title and start a new thread for your other problem is searching here for a solution doesn't help you first. The forums here are packed ambiguous or misleading posts and mixing problems under one thread is not helpful to others who make be in the same boat as you and search for a solution.

Take care!
