old version links

Postby chrstphr » 24 Aug 2012, 23:39

i have eagerly followed ff since before cm1.

some of the early files' links are dead:

hl2-fakefactory_cinematic_mod_update_to_1.3.zip
fakefactory_addon_3.1.ip
fakefactory_addon_3.zip
fakefactory_addon_2.zip
fakefactory_outdoor_addon.zip
...and most of the rest of cm2...
...about half of cm3...

more importantly, as of 7/5, filefront/gamefront is going to auto-delete less-popular files. maybe that's where they went. although it would be inconvenient, you should find a really permanent file archive. maybe you could set up an ftp just for archives. i don't know how many dls you get, maybe it wouldn't be expensive. and no, some of these are not on any search engine.

if you're going to have them (yes!!) you need a better place.

i don't want to keep grinding on this, but those are the links i'm using, and yes the ones mentioned above are now dead.

i don't think it's me because some of the links are good...

i believe this is going to keep popping up with some files just disappearing. (and the old filefront went under and was sold off in 2009...) i admit i don't have an elegant solution (click-bot? script? i dunno).

this is a bit embarrassing, but here's the story:

something triggered my mind and i tried the links with plain-vanilla 32bit internet explorer. most of them started working.

armored firefox (blockers etc) is disfunctional for filefront/gamefront.

this used to happen a lot in the days of ie6, and i guess it still does.

however there are still some problem links, like the one you mentioned and some of the later ones:
--cm6full somehow just downloads the link code (44kb) and not the file.
--cm9.0base seems to be missing from the post but not the 'clients' list (that is, missing from 'half-life files')

and,

i have a copy on dvd of cm951update (2,772,932,764 uncompressed) if you can think a way to get it to you.

thx for your time, chrstphr

this happend to me sometimes when I download a torrent file where it just opens it up like a text file.
