Need Help and more clarification with setting up FastDL or if I just dont need it.

  • I wanted to make my own private zombies server just for my friends to play on since me going into a solo's game makes the zombies for modded maps kinda buggy when my friends join me through my IP with the connect IPv4 cmd in the console. I got to the part in this guide where it starts to talk about modding and and how WAMP was something I needed to use to install a web server for windows.

    https://forum.plutonium.pw/topic/6976/windows-pluto-t4-dedicated-server-guide

    However there was a link on how to load custom maps/mods onto a server that seemed to me at least to not have much to do with WAMP and FastDL. Here it is.

    https://forum.plutonium.pw/topic/9342/how-to-load-a-mod-custom-mp-map-on-a-server

    So here are my questions.

    • Do I need WAMP and FastDL for this or could I just ignore that and follow the guide on how to load MP & ZM custom maps and mods guide instead?

    • If the above question is true then what is WAMP used for? And how could I use it for this use case of running a custom modded zombies server (Links to guides, or just giving me a bit of an explination would be much appreciated!)

    • Is there any more important details that I should probably know about for dedicated servers like I saw in a thread pinned How to configure IW4MAdmin for Pluto T4 would that be of any use or help to me at all and how would I go about setting it up correctly?

    I have never set any of this up before so it is all completely new to me so I am sorry if what I am saying sounds kind of dumb and simple to set up to someone who might have done this before. If anyone could help me with this issue then it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

  • You dont need WAMP or IW4MAdmin. These are optional tools to help you manage your server. You can just load a mod or map and it will work fine. Just follow the guide and it should work.

  • @DXontheradio Oh thanks! I wasn't so clear if they were optional or not. I wish they made that a little more clear though.

  • with out setting up fast dl you are going to be defaulted to download speeds for when people are downloading custom content

    when sp downloading gets fixed you are going to need to have fast dl setup iirc

  • Hey! As I wrote both guides I'd figure I'd chime in. I might be repeating info others have said but so be it.

    I got to the part in this guide where it starts to talk about modding and and how WAMP was something I needed to use to install a web server for windows.

    You don't actually need to worry about this at all if everyone who is playing has the mod downloaded and installed already.

    Do I need WAMP and FastDL for this or could I just ignore that and follow the guide on how to load MP & ZM custom maps and mods guide instead?

    If players connecting do not have the mod, then FastDL is required.

    And how could I use it for this use case of running a custom modded zombies server (Links to guides, or just giving me a bit of an explination would be much appreciated!)

    WAMP is the web server where the game looks for to serve your mods to connecting players to. I cannot give any guides as I do not use WAMP for my web server.

    Is there any more important details that I should probably know about for dedicated servers like I saw in a thread pinned How to configure IW4MAdmin for Pluto T4 would that be of any use or help to me at all and how would I go about setting it up correctly?

    IW4MAdmin is useful for kicking/banning players, but currently does not support ZM so I guess wait till that comes out then take a look if you wish to set it up, it is not a requirement by any means.


    Hope this helped:)
