NOO! FILEFRONT! COME BACK!

Post by Loki on Wed Mar 25, 2009 12:32 pm

Filefront is supposedly shutting down! NO! Mad Download ALL the files you can, while you can. This will most likely include the links from the Download Section here. For those of you who are interesting, you can view a more detailed story HERE and HERE.

HERE is the official story - edited by Ice

Oh great No This isn't good news. A lot of our map downloads are hosted there and nowhere else on the Internet... Hissy Fit

Alright.. well we need a new place to host all the maps we have in our downloads section that aren't anywhere else but on filefront. It needs to be whatever will replace FileFront as the defacto web upload place, that way it'll be reliable and around for a very long time. Also no download limits...

I have downloaded everything that the servers currently use. While there is nowhere to host them for now, I'll keep a hold of them until such times there is one. If anyone has suitible locations where they can be hosted then either reply here or PM me.

We could attempt to use MediaFire. It gives us unlimited uploads and no account is needed but if you have an account you can manage the files you have uploaded. And, if you upgrade to MediaPro then you can password protect files. Check it out here

Thanks, I'm about to click on that link. I do appriciate it.
EDIT: That site is just what we're looking for, thanks agian. I'm going to register just to see what it's like. Crazy, it would be cool if you would register too and get our stuff on there because you have all the maps

Let's all slow down a bit and check out where the community migrates to before we start wasting time uploading junk all over the web. For example, I've heard that a site jksource.com is being built as a replacement for jk2files.

In any case, we have some time so there's no immediate need. I would prefer to host our files the same place everyone else in the jk community starts hosting theirs so we can be consistent.

Does Massassi.net host any of the maps we use already? It doesn't really look like they're accepting new submissions.. they seem kind of inactive?

I bet Massassi won't be so grateful. I doubt they'll give up a chunk of their bandwith so we can store our maps there.

I've been using MediaFire for quite a while now and that site accepts ANY files. We could host screenshots and such from there also. We could use MediaFire until JKSource comes up. I have a feeling it might take a while considering they said they salvaged all of jkfiles'. That would probably take a while to re-establish a website and reload thousands of skins, maps, and mods.

Wonko and I want to preserve the maps in our download center including the readmes and whatnot, so that's why jksource is number one. We want the whole jk2 community to have access to these files publically

www.jksource.com read. Everything should be kept that was on jk2files on that site.

Man, the fact that file front is closing up shop is really shitty. Like llama said (I think) We need a place that's happy to give up a lot of bandwidth to let us provide the semi washed masses with our horde of maps.

Well it looks like jksource might take another week or two to get up and running. Let's keep a close eye on it, but I guess we need that plan B now until jksource does come through for us.

I doubt we need to upload everything to our plan B site. Probably just the key things like the hydroball files and a few of the most popular maps. That should be good enough to get us by for the next two weeks right?

I like it when people say "DON'T PANIC!" It strikes fear and terror into peoples hearts. It's like asking a dog that is chewing your throat apart not to do it. Very Happy

Yeah, I'm THAT mad.
