Cannot Upload a Map to autohost Heeeelp

Post by Jonny5isalivetm »

Hi people,

springfiles like most file servers only operates in HTTPS, but it seems to require HTTP ?
How can I tell the autohost to accept it ?

Perhaps he is talking about a spads plugin that allows users to upload maps to it? I do know there is a plugin for users to be able to feed a url to spads and it will download the file. Perhaps that is his issue. He is trying to give spads an https url and spads is saying Aw hell to the naw.

It was from springlobby to a autohost, using !dlmap command

It got worked out, some springfiles sites supported http and others only supported https

This command is not included in SPADS core but offered by the DownloadArchives plugin. The latest version of this plugin (0.4) should be fine with https links.

TLS support for lobby connection is now available for all SPADS releases, but it's not enabled by default.

for the curious: why isn't pr-downloader used for downloading?

its understandable that a new dependency should be avoided. Spads uses perl and downloading a file is trivial: but for automatic updates of spring it seems to use a 7zip executable packed to it which could be replaced by pr-downloader which unpacks the engine, too. And then it could be used for maps and games downloads, too.

Actually I remember experimenting a bit with pr-downloader long time ago, unfortunately I wasn't able to use pr-downloader in a non-intrusive way (i.e. not modifying anything else than what was asked, in the location it was asked). I don't remember exactly which commands I tested and what were the exact problems at that time though. Maybe I just fell into the trap where specifying "--filesystem-writepath" after the action parameter ("--download-map", "--download-engine" for example) will partly ignore the provided writepath and create/use the default "$HOME/.spring/..." folders. Or maybe it was some Windows specific thing...

Also, SPADS uses a different directory structure than the one used by pr-downloader. pr-downloader uses "engine/<version>" whereas SPADS uses "spring/<version>-<architecture>". Afaik there is no way to tell pr-downloader to just extract the engine in a given folder, it will necessarily create the "engine/<version>" structure. SPADS uses the "<version>-<architecture>" name to recognize engines downloaded for different architectures (useful when SPADS files are moved from one system to another with different architecture...).

Finally, SPADS only extracts the required files for autohosting (spring-dedicated, spring-headless and base data), whereas pr-downloader extracts the full engine each time.
