I run a Dedicated Dismember server.... I have a 1MB upload speed on Op. Online, I have a couple of custom maps. but if a client connects, and they dont have the map Im running, they get horrible DL speeds from me, like 56k modem speeds when I send the map to them!! Even through my 100Mbit LAN its slow, I dont have the ffaepisode1 map on my machine, but to DL it from my server it would take 50 minutes... is there a parameter that will increase the speed?:confused:

Use a rate of around 30000 to 50000 for better speeds.

The trick here is that a client's download speed is limited to the sv_maxrate setting on the server. If you increase the maxrate enough to make the downloads go more quickly, the players will also will eat up more bandwidth while playing. If that's not an issue, then just boost it up. If you are trying to conserve bandwidth, for whatever reason, then you are stuck in the same position as everyone else. This issue has been a thorn in admin's sides for a long time. Perhaps with enough "encouragement", Raven will add a separate cvar for map download rates.
