IGN killing more gaming history, this time: Fileplanet

Visit http://www.fileplanet.com/ to see:

Note: FilePlanet is no longer being updated and is in the process of being archived.

Some time ago they killed all the hosted sites on the planet* sites. Now Fileplanet which they forced their hosted sites to use for downloads. Expletives!

By the way, I mirrored the forumplanet forums a while ago: http://archive.org/details/Forumplanet. … comArchive

Eh, about forumplanet... http://forumplanet.gamespy.com/ is redirecting to http://www.ign.com/boards/ now. I could not find any of the old Quake boards.
http://www.ign.com/boards/forums/diablo.5218/ suggests they just moved them all though. Morons.

If it's any help (probably redundant), I did a partial mirror of planetquake many years ago. Here's a list of what I've got readily accessible.

One year later, we are finally truly getting close to completion.

All files are now uploaded to IA. Stay tuned for a user-interface.

~120 000 public files, 9.5TB
~200-300 000 not public as those are mixed with private files, ~2TB or something

Re: IGN killing more gaming history, this time: Fileplanet

I am now finally working on a frontend. Very WIP but functional https://www.quaddicted.com/stuff/temp/f … name=quake

Not fancy, but you can download fine.

If someone wants to collaborate, please shout. It's php & sqlite3. Great features to have would be a realtime search box and pagination. I have more metadata, screenshots etc, which I will join later. I will probably also properly restore the timestamps, noticed the "23:00:00" just now. I have them accurate to the minute.

Some more work on it, directory browsing and detail pages where we have details.

Still very WIP, so keep it to yourself. :)
