TUTORIAL => LOCATORS !

Postby DromEd » 21.07.2008, 09:38

Hello ! My new tutorial is about locators !

What is a locator and why to use it ?

A locator is a file with a *loc extenstion. We use it for some things, in-game are mutch faster to download from the host (tracks...)

What are the required tools for use/create a *loc ?

Just notepad ! it's a text file but the extention must be renamed for *loc ! :)

Where to put a *loc file ?

In Crashday/trkdata/tracks/yourloc.trk.loc

I trought it was a *loc ... why you added a *trk in teh file ?

This is how works the locator :wink: It must be track.trk.loc !

Ok...but what should we writte in the *loc ?

It comes a little bit harder...becuase you need upload the locator file and the track file later on the internet (example : FTP, own webpage, an upload service...)
When your track file is uploaded, you must writte in the *loc file, it's url ! upload the *loc file also then...

What my FTP and *loc should contain then ?

FTP : your *trk and *loc files
In the *Loc : the url of where is uploaded your track (example : http://mywebpage.com/mytrack.trk)

!!! => don't forget, the *loc file must be in xxxxxx.trk.loc and not in xxxxxx.loc ! or it won't work...

When everything is done and uploaded correctly, what next ?

nothing...it's finished ! try to host the track now...you'll see the track will be almost instentanly finished downlading :wink:

>>> If you didn't understand some parts or you want ask question, said them there <<<

not 10 kb but about 150 kb for start...and locators is not for the owner...locators are for the clients...

well... 150 is not a big file, in your bandwitch you have 2 parts, one for upload and another one for download, clients use download badwitch to get the maps and this part is quite bigger than the upload bandswutch so nobody but you should have problems to get a so ridiculous file, anyway i repeat you that i have more than 800 tracks, if i want to create 800 locators i would become crazy!!

This is understandable, but some players in my host at taking mutch time (more than3 mins) to download a track ... :|
When I use locators, they ar ein-race in less 2 seconds :) ... and yes this tutorial is idiotic but only for guys who don't need it...

150kb downloading in 2-3mins sometimes, on good internet. So, when somebody make new track just add locators. Dont change it in old tracks, just add it to new tracks, it works.
