View Full Version : Free HTTP downloads for servers

21st June 2006, 20:14
We have just started a new service that provides free http (sv_downloadurl) map / sound / custom content hosting.

The homepage for this service is http://www.iamacup.com/

"What do you offer?

Basically we host BZ2 versions of WAV, BSP and any other custom content files on a separate server (not iamacup.com) and allow people to use the sv_downloadurl cvar to link to it. This only works in source based games because we insist that all of the files are compressed using the BZ2 protocol which is free and open source."

currently hosted files are here


although this url changed once ever two weeks to stop websites linking to the files because they are not the authors original packages.

Please read the setup guide on how to get your server working with this service!

any other files will be hosted on request of a server admin / user, we are currently automating this process

I tried following the more info link and the page wouldn't load.

I was trying to find out which maps you currently have hosted?
