If you're tired of sharing links to your track and car mods to seven different group chats before each race then our Content Manager Wrapper (CMW) integration will be great for you! This guide will take you through the process of setting up CMW and sharing content through it.
Drivers will need to use Content Manager to access content shared using this method!
First navigate to
Server -> Options and scroll down to the
Content Manager Integration section. Once there make sure the option is enabled, and select any open port that isn't currently being used. The options beneath this are not required for sharing content, and can be enabled or disabled as required.
If you're using ACSM v2 or newer then you don't need to set the "Content Manager Wrapper Port" (the option won't even be there) because v2 uses the already configured Lobby HTTP Port instead.
Once that is set up you just need to let Server Manager know where your mod content can be downloaded from. To do that go to the content page (for example
Content -> Cars and Setups -> some mod car) and add the download URL for the content to the
Download URL input in the
Car/Track Metadata section.
You can also add a Download URL to a piece of content whilst uploading it to the server by filling in the
Download URL input in the upload form.
This link will work best if it is directly to the download, for example a Mega link or similar. Race Department links work but require more work from your drivers.
Open Content Manager (CM) and navigate to the server, if you're missing any mod content (and the server is running CMW) and the links are direct you'll see the
Install missing content button. Pressing this button will download any missing content (provided the above steps have been followed on the server). This will activate the normal sequence for installing a mod in CM after clicking the button (the burger bar at the top right of CM should turn green and ask if you want to install the new content).
If the links aren't direct you will see links to all mod content in the CM description, if the
Install missing content button doesn't work then try downloading the content from here.
Then you should be good to go!
