Setting up .bz2 files for server downloads.

I know how to compress maps into .bz2 files but I don't know how to set the server to allow downloading of them. Is it as simple as just putting them in the cstrike/maps folder or do I have to host them elsewhere. Also, is there any mani config etc I need to change? Matt.

    I believe it is something like you host it on a site and they download it from there. It stops the server lagging. I think this is it. I'm not sure.

    Thnx. There must be some config file that needs changing then for the server to tell people where the files are hosted. Does anyone know how to set this up? I think I've seen it on the FPSB server so someone here must know how it's done.

    All you need to do is in your server.cfg edit or add the line : sv_downloadurl "http://websitename.com/cstrike/" and host the files there. you do not need the zipped ones on your server. Enjoy.
