Remote Media

by MarcelH » Wed May 07, 2014 22:34

Hi there

I saw in the config, that "remote_media" is possible.

What folder/files I need to put (on my http server), thet the client will fetch them?

Setting up a remote media server is very easy:
Put all textures which you can find in your enabled mods together (like in a texture pack) in one folder and start a HTTP server at this place.
Good example: (BrandonReese's remote media)
For the example, you would need to add:
Code: Select all
remote_media =

To the servers minetest.conf file

What Krock said is outdated, you need to create an index file with a specific format.
It's easiest to just use this script:
