RIP Filefront :(

Post by Zman » Tue Mar 24, 2009 4:27 pm

Read comments 16 and 17. http://commandandconquer.filefront.com/ ... 2x#1749139

Very bad news for every person and every community that relies on filefront if its true.

I wouldn't put to much faith in this sort of thing being true until one of the senior FF admins makes some kind of statement. The forum shave had this problem on at least two occasions before.

Not this time, its more serious than that. Ziff Davis Media seems to have decided(thats the running story right now btw) to no longer host Filefront which obviously includes the main site and the files sites.

It would reeeeaaaallllllllllllly be a good idea to do what ^they^ are doing right now just to be safe. I have 45 gigs that I can really spare right now so I can't do most of the heavy lifting.

EDIT: Here's a lot more on what has happened. You've only got about a week to get everything you want from any of the files sites and the main site.

EDIT2: It's official, all of Filefront will be no more on March 30th.

They are closing for good. Final day will be March 30th.

If you want something from them, go and download or it will be to late.

Hello there.

I just wanted to publicly thank AFC for being willing to host mods on this site in the interim. I'm told by IKS that there is a plan for long-term succession for the A2 community, and we're going to have a transition stage from the present FileFront setup to a new site referred to tentatively as "Mod Network".

Trust me, it's been a very difficult couple of days for all of us, and now that it's official, however this thing ends up, I wanted to be on the record as saying that we all appreciate AFC's efforts in this regard.

all the best,
the Starfleet Kid

Firstly, in case anybody is still doubting - yeah its true.

Secondly, There are quite a few avenues being approached to keep the site content live. We are looking over our options at the moment before committing ourselves to any particular course of action, however it looks like we will be ok. However, we are probably going to lose the armada2files.com domain, which is really the biggest loss.

Hi Freyer,

according to you there seems to be a solution for Armada2files, but what about the Bridge Commander and SFC 3 parts of the network?
Will these parts be continued in one way or the other?

It's too bad filefront is really shutting down :(
But if I can help you can ask,,
I have above 500 GB of space to spare if you want to save the files on BCfiles, A2Files, and LegacyFiles.
I'm really happy AFC is willing to help the A2 community and save all the files...

Oh and also SFC3Files ofcourse for the people who play those...

Just tell me where to upload them then,, but first tell me if I have permission to upload those files....

When I come back from the hospital, I will download all files and put them all in seperate maps,, like it was done on filefront...

Most of the games that had a network site will be getting new homes. The only real problem is finding a place to upload them.

Well who going to save Age Of Empire 3? Someone must help

That hitting the junk yard, any site that is not that busy will be throught away. They have limited things they can save.

Armada 2 and Legacy will be back up. But they have to code it and it will take time to add all those files.

Cabal look at my above post.

I do have something to add that will hopfully end up being relevant to the A2 community. No specifics yet but, im sure it will involve all the Trek communities from FF.
