Running custom maps on a dedicated server

Postby [KH]Mr Guarnere on Fri Oct 15, 2010 10:52 am

Do you guys know how to run custom maps on a dedicated Alien Swarm server? The files I have are .vpk and for a client they go into the "addons" folder. Is it the same for a dedicated server? Or do I need the .bsp file?

Drop the .vpk's in the 'alienswarm\swarm\addons' folder on the server.

You can always use the KH Alien Swarm Server. Just turn it on via paneldaemon.

I have added the server folder to your FTP account G.

Thx mate. That worked - it was a friend asking how to set it up.

Thx for giving me access to it. I'll use it wisely :-)
