    Hi,

    I'm new to hosting TF2 Servers, and I'm trying to play on a map but the map is over the 64MB file size. I've been looking around the web and I see that you have to make a web server or something? How do you do that, and is there any other way to do increase the download limit besides the web server?

    To increase the file download limit to say 100 you use the command:
    net_maxfilesize 100
    This goes in your server.cfg file in your cfg directory. If you don't have one, create one.

    Or simpler, just use a http offload setup. That's better for everyone.

    Doesnt work, that's what I was talking about with the whole "Max file size is 64MB". I can put net_maxfilesize 1000 if I wanted to and still the max it can go to is 64. :(

    if the map is over 64mb in size. You need to compress it down using bz2 (I think) or similar.

    Then would I just throw the bz2 in the server's map folder?
