Gah >.< Please help!
Hey there,

I recently downloaded the HLDS stuff for both a CSS and DoDS server. Both work fine, perfect, no problems.

Myself and another clan member then thought that we should add new maps, and get rid of the majority of the old, now boring maps in the map cycle.

So I did.

We got 20 maps, and implemented them all as they should be.

Then the problems began...

My friend tried connecting to the server, and he got the missing map error. So, Thinking from when I had created the CFG, I remembered I hadn't set the URL in the Download section. So I went and altered it, and thought, "Oh Ok, These will work now, and he should be able to download them!"

This, to no avail.

So Jay (The friend) then downloaded the maps from the site himself, put them in his DoDS folder, and whoa la, they all worked.

Personally, this sucks - I don't want to have to lose people, because I know that the majority of people joining maps like that, will not go and search google to download the map, then come back on - they will just go to another server.

Below, is the CFG.

I hope this is just a URL that you just put there to not include your own URL.. and if this is the actual link then do some more reading.
This thread is old.

I would prefer if you didn't and you actually helped rather than insulting me.
So what? Do I have to get my own FTP or something to put all the maps in, then use that?

Or can I put each individual download link in my CFG? =/
you cant use fpsbanana as a downloadurl, you need an actually webhost
Thought as much. Well, now to remember how to use Apache I guess.
you can use this
Ah, awesome.

Thankyou Smile

You have helped me loads Big Grin
No problem, just trying to help out
One quick last question, on this site when I register, do I use the LAN IP ( or my external IP? I guess external
