sv_allowdownload 0
I've searched and searched, as I know I've seen this subject somewhere on here, but to no avail.

How do you prevent players from downloading maps from your server? I run siege007 and nancy in my mapcycle and am tired of 3 or 4 players per map downloading off of me. Yes, I have sv_allowdownload set to 0. sad.gif

    Why do you not whant people to down from you ?
    If you disable it theres a big chance that you'll loose alot of players as they dont know where to find the maps.

    The resulting lag is horrendous. In all my years of gaming I've never been able to understand why someone would wait 30 minutes or longer for a download when they can have it in 30 seconds. ns_nancy (1.04 version but with overview) can be downloaded here.

    Indeed it is. Not sure how this got changed in my server.cfg, but I'll try it and see.

    Upload is sprays going up to the server, download is maps and sprays going down to the client.

    A few things:

    Make sure you are setting sv_allowdownload and not sv_allowdownloads. The default NS server config has the incorrect, extra s.

    Might as well set sv_allowupload to 0 since you can't send sprays down, why have clients send them up?

    Check your server.cfg, autoexec.cfg, adminmod.cfg, and your startup line and make sure you have no duplicates that are resetting each other.

    Hope that helps fade.gif
