Does anyone know if there is plugin to STOP people from d/l off the serve. The carvs in server .cfg dont seem to be stoping them.

    I think thats because the cfg is distributed with sv_allowdownloads 1 but it should read sv_allowdownload 1 (or 0 to stop)

    Yo Hudson, its Loosecannon28

    Yeah I realized that cl_whatever are CLIENT cvars while sv_whatever are SERVER cvars (lol ... duh!)

    Set sv_allowupload and sv_allowdownload to 0 and everything should be dandy.

    Good luck hudson smile.gif

    Oh and BTW, your 24/7 Siege Server lags not because of people downloading from your server. You see, the upload rate from your server to the clients is set at SUCH a SMALL value that it shouldn;t matter at all ... in fact it takes so long to download a small map from a server that the server rarely lags from it.

    Thus, ur server lags potentially for serveral reasons
    1) Your server computer is too slow - get a better one perhaps?
    2) Your connection is too slow - either tweak the sv_maxrate and the sv_minrate or decrease the number of maxplayers
    3) Take out any and all extraneous plugins. Any "optimized" server should only have half a dozen of plugins at MOST total and they are: amxmod (better than adminmod in terms of server usage), metamod, Unstuck Pro, MAYBE medarmory, MAYBE Win HL Ping Booster. Most of the other plugins spice up your server and generally speaking, it also slows it down

    Good luck Hudson!

    when a user connects without the map to a server is causes a briefe moment of lag no matter what the connection or hardware is like. I can let people dl via apache on the same box and they can huge dl speeds without lagging our server but if it's tried withing game there is a brief but annoying lag spike every time a new dl is initiated.

    They'll download at their connection speed, ie what rate is set to, so it'd be no different from having them in the game. I do believe they lock down a slot tho, and that would be the primary reason I'd not allow downloads.
