How do I allow users to download custom maps? CS:S

Post by The Red Star » Wed Aug 31, 2016 11:36 am

So, I've added custom maps to my CS:S server and I'm able to download them by using sv_downloadurl and a mediafire link.

When I use changelevel, I can download and play the map but my friends have an error saying missing map, disconnecting.

How do I make it so they can download the map as well WITHOUT using a redirect server host (I've already spent enough money on the server).

Any ideas?

Hello,

Third-party maps (outside of the Steam Workshop) require the use of our redirect services. However, you may also try the following command to see if this helps within server.cfg:

cl_allowdownload "1"
cl_allowupload "1"
cl_downloadfilter "all"

Please restart the server for the new changes to take full effect.
