I did that but it doesnt seem to work
Can someone make a kf specific one, and how to remove the 10kb/s limit?

i set my download link to [URL]http://ipofmyfastdlserver/killingfloor/[/URL], and then uploaded the compresed maps to killingfloor/maps, should this work?

Delete the "maps" folder.
All the files should go into the killingfloor directory.

or change your link to:
[URL="http://ipofmyfastdlserver/killingfloor/maps/"]http://ipofmyfastdlserver/killingfloor/maps/[/URL]

The forward slash / at the end of the line is ESSENTIAL, do not miss it out, or the redirect won't work

OGG music files are not redirected and won't be downloaded by the client.


Well thank you for that information.

Does UT have something like a res file for hlds?

The res files tell the client what to grab off the redirect site.

Works like it should do on our servers, same setup as RvS. Some hosts do block and restrict this type of redirect so some people my have issues.

KF redirect is borked. I have already posted a message on this. It doenst work.

No offense, but your configuration is what's borked.

UT server redirect has been working just fine for years, and the KF server is basically that with a mod on it.

You're redirecting to your own killing floor server i take it?

A redirect is meant to be on a separate server to your actual game server - hence the name redirect...

Also if people want to increase the download speed from the server there is a setting in the ini for maximum transfer to clients which is probably around 10000 value, but this can cause your server to have lag if people connect and download the maps at significantly faster speeds. Depending on your server, i wouldn't recommend a setting above 50000 and that is probably pushing it.
