ok, any idea how to set it up on the web site? I do have the files uploaded to the web site in the tfc as main folder and the sub folders in it. (mainly just the sounds for now). Have the url set in my server.cgf fileas www.planetiodine.com/tfc but it doesnt seem to work. Is there some certain way I havet o have it set on the web site to get it too work? Tried their support ticket but they couldnt help.

Fast d/l = web space / web server, not included in TFC.
Many game server providers offer fast download (web space), some as a free addition / service.
You need to upload parts of the tfc folder to that web space (maps and required custom files): - ".wad" files - subfolders gfx\env (contains skies), maps, models, overviews, sound, sprites These are the most common places for map resources.

A fast download would be nice. Until it's set up, maybe disable the sound plugin because it's not possible to play until all sound files have been downloaded which takes ages without fast download.
Edit: I guess you're using the same sounds as Evil, so I wondered why it did download them all again. I took a closer look, seems you used the wrong folder name. Should be "sound", not "sounds". No idea why Valve didn't add an "s" to this one.
tx will implement those changes. thought the amxx was the latest LOL the meta was what the company put on there but yea will update that too. I did the air accelerate before I found the bhop mod so was messing with that to see if it would help (didnt help me much but LOL) just forgot to put it back. tho prob explains why the accelerate does seem a bit exaggerated now LOL Forgot how tedious it was to run a server. I used the same server cfg file I used back in the day when i ran planetiodine for clan iodine,(I have an issue with getting rid of old files, still have files from back when i had windows 95 on my external drive) actually had the old tfl and ogl league configs also which i think i mixed into it.

A bit off-topic, I took a look at the public server variables of the IOD server.
I would update AMXX and Metamod to a newer version, unless you have a reason to keep the old ones.
tfc_balance_scores might be better set to 0 in case people play OvD on a CTF map. In this case it's natural that the offence has a higher score than defence, and shouldn't be punished for it.
tfc_spectchat - by default it's 0, meaning spectators can't use global text chat. It might make sense to allow spectators to use global (text) chat.
sv_alltalk - 0 by default, meaning you can only hear your own team's voice comm. This is usually fine, especially on competitive servers. On public servers, it *may* be preferable (or not), that you can hear anyone's voice chat.
I noticed sv_airaccelerate has been increased slightly (12 instead of 10). I guess this makes it easier to bhop, but normally I wouldn't touch gameplay mechanics.
