Hide Cvars?
#1
There's a way to hide the cvars from the clients?

so they can't use my sv_downloadurl for any other server?

pd: the .htaccess thing, doesnt work for my host

Well I never really tried to hide it but it could be possible to add an alias at the end of the server.cfg
alias "sv_downloadurl" "Protected.."

but I'm not sure if it will work at all.

I just add the IP address to the .htaccess file so only my server can access it

I remember this issue coming up a long time ago, and I can't for anything remember what we decided... I do remember that we basically just brushed it as being not much of an issue. I think it was because if you go in a random server and just type in sv_downloadurl it won't tell you the actual url. I'm not sure on that though.

I did that for a while but there were 2 regulars that it always failed on. Just wouldn't let them download the map (they'd get a missing .bsp error). No idea why it effected them alone (can you turn off referrers in an options dialog somewhere?). So I removed it, and I'm not really too bothered that people can access the downloadurl from their web browser.

the only problem, is if they find out the url, they would be able to point their game server to the same url and just download maps off your webhost. Using up your expensive bandwidth. Then again, they would have to run all the same maps as you, same sounds and everything. So it wouldn't be very easy if they wanted it to be seamless.
