HL1/HL2 Games - Fast Map Re-direction [sv_downloadurl]

How to enable and setup sv_downloadurl for HL1 and HL2 Game Servers.

This guide is intended for KillerCreation customers but should provide useful for anyone wishing to setup fast map re-direction.

Please note, both KillerCreation dedicated server and game server customers receive free fast map re-direction space included within their service. This service is not setup by default but a quick email to our support staff and we’d be happy to enable this for you.

Requirements:
-Web space including FTP details – IP, port, and login information
-External URL – for example http://maps.killercreation.co.uk/maps/john-smith/cstrike
-HL1 or HL2 game server with access to the installation via FTP or our game panel.

If you’re unsure of any information, log into our billing portal http://www.killercreation.co.uk/cp  - under your service tab you will find the relevant details.

Let's begin....

1) Game server installation side.

 - Via ftp or via our game panel log into your server and navigate to the game folder.  In this instance we will assume you have a Counter-Strike Source game server with the following path base-directory/cstrike/cfg/. Open up the server.cfg and add or correct the following two lines:

sv_allowupload 1
sv_allowdownload 1
sv_downloadurl "http://maps.killercreation.co.uk/maps/john-smith/cstrike/"

-Close and save the server.cfg.

- To state the obvious, the game server installation must contain the custom map and any other files required to function.

2) Web space side.

- Log into your fast map re-direction space / web space. If this is the first time you’re logging in, the directory will be blank. Create the following folders (assuming this is for Counter-Strike Source game server, if not, adjust to suit).

Base Directory  – cstrike – -addons
                                          -downloadlists
                                          -graphs
                                          -maps
                                          -materials
                                          -models
                                          -resource -overviews
                                                          -maphtml
                                          -scripts
                                          -sprites
                                          -sounds
                                          -textures
                                                                  
                                         
*Note - Not all maps will require files adding to the listed folders as simply they don’t always come with them.
*Note 2 – .Wad files are to be placed inside the cstrike directory.

- Now it’s just a case of uploading your custom maps. Make sure all files associated with mapx are uploaded both to the webspace and the game server installation, for the service to work, the game installation and web space must mimic each other exactly.

Simple as that :)
