GameFront is closing.

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

I saw this news on ModDB. 20 years old website, GameFront. Sadly announce their site will ceased operation on the next 2 weeks on April 30. Their mods, addons, etc. might be not recover if they did it. I have a question. Gamebanana team, are you planning to recover their contents that aren't exist here?

    The link is still available until April 30. So there's a chance to recover their files.

    I've tried reaching out to them on email and twitter - if there is anyway we can save the site or its contents we will try to do so, however in the mean time I suggest people start downloading as much stuff as they can and adding it to the relevant sections of GB. 

    EDIT: It looks like their email link is dead, if anyone has an updated contact please let me know. 

    EDIT 2: I'll offer a bonus 10 points for each submission people relocate from GameFront, just post a list of relocated files here and I'll add the points to your account.  (Example below)
    Original: GameFront.com/files/123456/Doom3Map
    New link: Doom3.GameBanana.com/maps/123456

    I remember when I used to browse so many different "insert game title here"files.com sites under the (now) Gamefront network.  Another modding haven bites the dust. :(

    No, ModDB is doing just fine!  However another modding website called GameFront.com is shutting down at the end of the month.

    1. Moddb and filefront are two different site.
    2. Moddb not close otherwise it would have been written on moddb.
    3. On the filefront no longer exists anything useful or I'm wrong?

    WE need an advertising campaign to get people to be more aware of this, and/or we could get the entirety of gamebanana to download all the files off the site and paste them on gamebanana

    A fine selection of geniuses replying on this thread eh?
     
    But yeah I hope you guys find a way to save as many files as possible, or even the site? (not sure what you are planning there Jonny).
    Such a shame to see them cease woking on it... again.

    Hey folks!

    Everyone who'd like some easy points and would like to contribute to the mission "Save GameFront mods", I'd suggest giving this a check.

    The only useful file - Cold Ice - first HL multiplayer mod I downloaded from the front to moddb. http://www.moddb.com/mods/cold-ice

    Archive Team is working on this.

    Those guys have archived FilePlanet as well before.

    Tip : I've heard that WGet can be used to batch download multiple files in a directory. It requires some commands but I ain't no advanced user.

    Filefront and Gamefront were the same right? I just found out last year that I can actually download some blocked contents using a unique proxy site. Too bad if they're closing their site
