Requirements

Game/Voice Services

The game and voice server files should be placed in the "Game Files Path" specified in the server settings (C:\TCAFiles\Games and /home/tcadmin/tcafiles/games by default). Optionally the server can be configured to download the files from another server.

Each game has a specific subfolder where the files should be placed. To find out the name of the subfolder go to System > General Settings > Supported Games > Select a Game > Files and Directories > Files Folder Name. For your convenience, each Steam game has a batch/shell script that you can execute to download the game files. If you imported a Steam game and you don't see this file restart the monitor and it will be created.

For example
If the value of "Files Folder Name" is bf2 the files should be placed in C:\TCAFiles\Games\bf2 or /home/tcadmin/tcafiles/games/bf2

The files can be left uncompressed in the subfolder or compressed in one of the supported formats. If your server downloads from another server the use of compressed files is recommended. The compressed files should only contain the contents of the subfolder, not the subfolder itself. Do not include the special TCAdmin folders in the compressed file (TCA.Mods, TCA.Updates, TCA.Maps).

For example
You can place the files for Counterstrike in a folder C:\TCAFiles\Games\cs or compressed in a zip file C:\TCAFiles\Games\cs.zip. If both exist, the compressed file will be used.
