Question force downloads?
Hi, i'm fairly new to this game...
I run a small Garry's Mod server, 10slot. It's awesome... but...

How do I force download? I mean, i've joined servers and it downloads all these special models/maps/sounds, but I don't know how to do that...

I have a couple small sound files in the sound/ directory that I'd like to force download so I can use them in game.

I have some webspace, so I can do download redirecting if I need to.
I'd rather not but if it's needed, I can. Could anyone explain to me what I do and how to make it download the sound files?


Thanks,
Moduliz0r

RE: force downloads?
Add the following to your server config to allow downloads from your server:

sv_allowdownload 1

To download from a redirect:

But just having the file there isn't enough to tell the clients to download, right?

I have allowdownload to 1, I'm currently not using a redirect because its only such a small file. But no clients are being forced to download sound/myfile.mp3

Edit:
I don't have Mani, and what are .res files?

You have to use the sound somehow. Like mani, you download like "Rampage" sounds and such.

I found a way to do it, I used the ULX admin mod (and stripped out everything but the ForcedDownloads module, because I already have an admin mod running). Now it works.

Awesome! Big Grin
