Clients Download ?


Recommended Posts


I've seen some posts talking about clients downloading stuff..

As I posted some time ago, I'm using fetchRemote server-side to download a char and then send it to the client.

But, when more players requests a chart, the server starts to lag. (Because it's downloading the chars (which are different almost always))

Now, I've seen/readed about downloadFile coming with MTA 1.4 (If I'm not wrong).

Would this function cause lag to the server? I rather that it causes lag to the client instead of causing lag to the whole server.

Download File as far as i know, downloads things from the server it's connected to, so i don't thing the problem is going to be solved, i suggest you posting it on mantis, but before that, download the nightly build for MTA 1.4 and test download file, good luck in that.

EDIT: since we posted in the same time, i'm gonna tell you to wait 1.4, it's coming soon.

You can also create a php page on the same machine to read your chart or whatever and use fetchRemote clientside to your custom page so the server doesn't get affected as much. I have such php file:

  $s = $_GET['s']; 
  $js = get_web_page("https://internet.page/somepage.php?data=".$s); 
  echo $js['content']; 
function get_web_page( $url ) 
        $user_agent='Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0'; 
        $options = array( 
            CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST  =>"GET",        //set request type post or get 
            CURLOPT_POST           =>false,        //set to GET 
            CURLOPT_USERAGENT      => $user_agent, //set user agent 
            CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE     =>"cookie.txt", //set cookie file 
            CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR      =>"cookie.txt", //set cookie jar 
            CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,     // return web page 
            CURLOPT_HEADER         => false,    // don't return headers 
            CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true,     // follow redirects 
            CURLOPT_ENCODING       => "",       // handle all encodings 
            CURLOPT_AUTOREFERER    => true,     // set referer on redirect 
            CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT => 120,      // timeout on connect 
            CURLOPT_TIMEOUT        => 120,      // timeout on response 
            CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS      => 10,       // stop after 10 redirects 
        $ch      = curl_init( $url ); 
        curl_setopt_array( $ch, $options ); 
        $content = curl_exec( $ch ); 
        $err     = curl_errno( $ch ); 
        $errmsg  = curl_error( $ch ); 
        $header  = curl_getinfo( $ch ); 
        curl_close( $ch ); 
        $header['errno']   = $err; 
        $header['errmsg']  = $errmsg; 
        $header['content'] = $content; 
        return $header; 

And just request if from the client with s parameter in.
