Hey gang!

I just finished putting up a KF2 map redirect.

kf2maps.com/kf2maps

I also have a KF2 game server going on.

Feel free to PM or post any maps you would like to see on the server and I'll be more than happy to add them.

DOSH FOR EVERYBODY!!

I need some feedback on a new script I've setup for the redirect.

Basically this script will allow the use of multiple redirects. If a file isn't present on one redirect it will look on the next in list, so on and so forth. However, I need help testing if it actually works. I only have one redirect server in the list (my own) but I am pretty sure it has all the files most people need anyway.

Please use this as your URL:
http://www.skillzservers.com/redirect/

This is BETA. Please only use it for KF2 for now. I will have one for KF1 after I get this one working.

If anyone would like to join in on the list please reply here and I will add your server to the list.

TWI really needs to get the ball rolling on setting up compression so this will be 100x easier. As of right now it only works with files ending in kfm. Not sure if there are other files needed on the redirect.

.u files are need also. For example, ServerExt is 1.14 MB. Coupled with lots of other mutators can really add up the download time.

Hi skillz, i'm not sure what is causing this problem, but i can't download anything from your server. Every time i try to download a map in-game i get this message:
Connection Lost
downloading package <mapname> failed:
error opening file
I already tried to discard the config files an make new one but that didn't help either. Is it possible something with your new script is causing this?

You need to add descriptions of custom maps in this file PCServer-KFGame.ini

Example

[KF-PortB2 KFMapSummary]
MapName=KF-PortB2
ScreenshotPathName=UI_MapPreview_TEX.UI_MapPreview_Placeholder

[KF-PoliceStationFinal KFMapSummary]
MapName=KF-PoliceStationFinal
ScreenshotPathName=UI_MapPreview_TEX.UI_MapPreview_Placeholder

I used skills redirect server before and it was working fine then without editing the PCServer-KFGame.ini file.

As far as i know editing the PCServer-KFGame.ini file is only necessary if you want to be able to change to custom maps from the change map tab in webadmin.

Are you using the URL for the script or are you using the direct link to the redirect?
What file did you edit?

Well, for me this redirect didn't work until I added those maps in config I described. I think it had something to do with lower upper case file names. May be in latest KF2 build they fixed this, I didn't test

P.S the official Tripwire redirect worked OK at that time btw even without editing config. But I could not upload maps there
