    Hello everyone,

    i´ve been following the tutorial done by Goanna here : https://forum.studio-397.com/index....cmd-and-paid-content.57209/page-4#post-962943

    But i can´t make it work for the automatic downloading item from the steam workshop (official free S397 content)

    The tutorial says:
    "Copy this line and paste into the command prompt, you'll need to change Your Steam Username and Your Steam Password to your actual Steam username and password (You need username and password now because you can only download rF2 content if you own the game);

    steamcmd +login Your Steam Username Your Steam Password +workshop_download_item 365960 963980240 +quit
    When that has finished use the same command to download the Karts...change 963980240 to 922034231 ie;

    steamcmd +login Your Steam Username Your Steam Password +workshop_download_item 365960 922034231 +quit"


    My directory dedicated server is in "G" hard drive and here is where i start
    G:\Steam-CMD
    CMD_01.JPG

    S i suppose i should type it this way:
    G:\> Steam-CMD +philmcqueen123456789 +workshop_download_item 1515650133 +quit

    Of course that doesn´t work :)
    So @Akela_DE gave me a hand and told me to put it this way:
    "no.
    First
    cd steamcmd
    Then
    steamcmd +philmcqueen123456789 +workshop_download_item 1515650133 +quit"


    CMD_02.JPG
    Root invalid

    But my steamcmd folder is in "G"

    What am i missing?

    You should remove the > and type G:\
    so get to G:\
    then type cd steamcmd and press Enter
    now you should see
    G:\steamcmd
    which means you are now in the steamcmd folder where you can type your command
    steamcmd +philmcqueen123456789 +workshop_download_item 1515650133 +quit
    and press Enter

    When you download steamcmd, this is normally a ZIP file (steamcmd.zip) and has to be first unpacked in G:\
    This should make the folder G:\steamcmd
    Can you go to G:\ and type dir and press Enter
    This will show the contents of G:\
    Then send a screenshot.

    Danke @Akela_DE !!

    So for those how are not familiar with "DOS COMMAND" i leave you what Akela_DE explain and works :

    To get to the right folder if you are in "G" here is th correct root to type:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>G:

    G:\>cd steam-cmd

    G:\Steam-CMD>

    Serveur_Dedi_V2_013.JPG

    After that still the correct way to download the item :

    steamcmd.exe +login philmcqueen 123456 +workshop_download_item 365960 1515650133 +quit

    It should look like that:
    Serveur_Dedi_V2_014.JPG

    Here is the result mission completed:
    Serveur_Dedi_V2_012.JPG

    1515650133: this is the item ID for the MCLAREN MP4available on steam workshop STUDIO-397
    365960: this is the RFACTOR ID for Steam

    Serveur_Dedi_V2_016.JPG



    One more time danke sehr my freund ;)
