I will create my own server UT2004, should I have to put the map inside my server or the server can bring the map directly from ut-file ?

Hi personne,

Putting the maps on the server will allow players to download them, but at a very slow rate. Using the ut-files redirect will allow said players to download them far quicker, so long as those maps are present on site.

You can set the redirect here in the System/ut2004.ini server configuration file:

[IpDrv.HTTPDownload]
RedirectToURL=http://uz2.ut-files.com/

Lexi!Meier,

As I understand it, you still need to have the map hosted on your server in order for the server to load it, correct?

The server itself can't pull from the redirect, I don't think. Although I hope you know something I dont!

Correct the map has to be on the server reguardless, the server doesnt connect to the redirect the clients do to download files. Not the server
