Redirect problem

Post by Pileyrei » Tue May 08, 2018 10:48 pm

Hi all

This is probably for Medor but I'll ask anyway.

Our servers have a redirect settings where you download files from another server.

We got busy on the DM/CTF server. I asked several players to join us at the time.
They all said the same thing - slow downloads.........0.1%.......0.2%.......etc

Here is my ini:

[IpDrv.HTTPDownload]
RedirectToURL=http://uz.overmindserver.net/
ProxyServerHost=
ProxyServerPort=3128
UseCompression=True

Why is the redirect not working well?

PS: Medor - is food Fight on redirect? Players said it was slow to download.

I have the same problem on our CMM server ...
They all said the same thing - slow downloads.........0.1%.......0.2%.......etc
The potential players specify that is is the Food Fight file that is slow .........0.1%.......0.2%.......etc
I am assuming it is that file - especially with a GameServers hosted server with their automatic Compression and Redirect.
I tell them to Download Food Fight from papercoffee's Mod Plug section link on its own for a remedy and add it to their UT System folder.
I know that papercoffee includes a Food Fight .uz file for Food Fight when you download it, but that Food Fight .uz file cannot be used with the GameServer's automatic Compression and Redirect, sadly. :(

Why pay GameServers for that when you can have a free one ?

You know, we had a good reason, but we just may have to rethink that and look into those! ;)

Interesting Hook and thanks for the information.

I had someone on Discord kindly test connecting to our server.
It took 10-15 minutes to download everything!
No wonder the server sits empty most nights.

His suggestion was to "get rid of all those stupid mods" . Lol.
I wasn't aware of any auto compression settings from game servers.
I don't understand how if I set my ini to use Medor's redirect the client doesn't automatically download from there?
Whats the point in me setting a redirect? I probably don't understand this properly :cry:

Do you know if you remove or opt out of the gameservers auto compress and redirect?
Is there a settings somewhere to remove it?
I want clients to pull any files needed from Medor's redirect and not from game servers.

In my time at gameserver redirect is not free. I think you have just to remove your option.
If it's not that; they have a forum or simply open a ticket for ask to remove this.


Is there uz you want send me before do this ?
