Map Downloading / Workshop / Crash Error

Post by Wrath » Thu Jun 12, 2014 4:37 am

Alright, so I have all my server maps added to my server using the resource.AddWorkshop thing in the lua file. Anyways, when someone new joins the server, it forces him or her to download all of them, as it says here.

Also, I'm a bit confused with the resource.AddWorkshop lua script. Are you able to add Workshop Collections using it, or only single files?

Also, finally, one more problem. On my server, everyone is able to join fine. However, there are two people who aren't able to at all. I'm not sure why, but they always crash after around 5 or 6 seconds of joining. Anyone have any idea of what the problem might be. One has a really good computer, and the other has a decent one.

Thanks for any help!

You should never add maps to your resource.lua file as it will force them to download them all upon connecting. We mention that in the second post in the link you referenced. When the server switches to a map that the client does not have it will automatically call it to download.

This could be a few things. What is the error seen in-game when they disconnect and what error do they see upon getting disconnected?

Alright, thanks for the advice. I have removed the maps from the forced download for my server.
:)

Also, there aren't any error messages; his game just completely crashes. I'll see if it works with the maps removed now.

Sorry for the triple post. Anyways, I removed the maps from download and everyone was able to join fine. However, I just added the map ttt_mw2_terminal, and new members who hadn't downloaded it previously got map errors. I'm unsure if this is because the server hadn't restarted or if it wasn't automatically doing it. I'll post results later. Thanks

What is the exact error they got? and did you add this to your workshop collection or to the server manually?

They didn't exactly get an error, but all 5 of the server members oter than myself wre unable to load in. It would just stop and not connect any of them. I manually added it. I don't use the Workshop Collection.

If you open console and take a look there should be some error there. If you can find it post it here.
