My question is, with Mani-Mod, how do you make it so when people join they dont have to download all those sound files that comes with mani-mod. Like the "hello" and "move" sounds. Their unnecissary and is just another thing to download from the server which makes my server's latency crap..

Remove the sounds from the server. As in, delete them.

thats the only way?

Sorry? Was you looking for and even simpler way? :eek: It's about as easy as it gets.

Im sure there is a way of shutting them off, we turned them off on the old Hidden servers we used to run for the Hiddenites. Its in the mani.cfg or something I believe. And for the peons(like me!) that hate downloading that crap when joining the servers that have them on, cl_downloadfilter none is your friend.

But that only stops the download for those with the filter on.

Removing them ensures no one has to download them.

I believe this is your simple answer - that boxy refered to.

// mani_sounds_auto_download is a cvar to control whether server sounds
// (not quake sounds) are auto downloaded to a client. If set to 0 you must
// provide your own .res files to initiate transfers to a client.
// If you change this value from 1 to 0 while the server is running you
// must restart your server.
mani_sounds_auto_download 0

Mani causes hell with hidden servers, so I wouldnt use it anyways, lots of thing causes the server to crash in it.

Mani is awesome you just have to update it between new hidden releases - the gametype.txt file is usually all that needs editing.

and you have to delete the TK punishment system. Just forgive and slay works, the other things don't work and sometimes crashes the server

30th June 2006, 21:47
forgive, slay, burn, slap all work. The only things that cause problems as in does something other than just not work is freeze. It'll make people transparent until they rejoin the server or a map change.

drugging seems broken, too
