Filefront Network To Shut Down - Please Read!!
 
Farewell

Any of you who have uploaded files on your hosted.filefront.com sites, download them and save them while you can, everyone! And download everything you think you will want later on.

jawathehutt 03-25-2009 05:13 PM

Oh so like they did here: http://starwarsbattlefront.filefront...s_closes;37936
By the way, gullible is written on the ceiling and I have some prime Scottish land for sale at a low low price

Forceboat 03-25-2009 06:14 PM

Did you actually read the message? I'm sorry if you think this is some sort of April Fool's joke, but it isn't. They really ARE shutting down. Your loss if you want some files, because they won't be available anymore.

M@RS 03-25-2009 07:01 PM

If this isn't a joke, then JK3 Files will close too?

GeneralPloKoon 03-25-2009 07:49 PM

Yes, JK3 too, along with the rest of FileFront.

Delta 47 03-25-2009 08:55 PM

Yeah, it sucks. FF was the only really good modding network available and was a great site to host files.

Forceboat 03-25-2009 11:44 PM

Well, good news from Kouen. Check this thread out. I had a dialogue back and forth with him. It's the third post down.

Gametoast.com welcomes the influx of great gamers from the Swbf-files and filefront Network. In the next few days we will be pulling all Star Wars gaming files and maps from swbffiles and setting them up for download right here at Gametoast.com. Thats right! The best Star Wars Modding Gamesite just got bigger! Our Intention is to add a new CMS to the site to handle all the news for gamers and to keep our game files information more organized. There will be a new map and download manager area once we get everything moved over. During the changes the forums and site will remain unchanged - Just look for more good files directly from the source. Also while its sad that another great gaming network is forced to sell itself to the competitors we salute Filefront for its years of massive file hosting and great services. Details are still pouring in but we assume well have everything moved and starting to offer up the files on or near March 30th.
We're good I guess, maybe we can use this opportunity to turn lucasfiles into more than just an old deserted and ineffective hosting site to something people use and visit.

Let's just hope they get most or all of the files before the shut-down.

It doesn't have to be "they" that get most or all of the files, everyone can help. All we're asking is that people take some time to download whatever mods they can (especially if they are your material or if they are harder to find) and reupload them other places.

If you follow along with this thread:
http://www.gametoast.com/forums/view...p?f=39&t=17804
You can see what are plans are, how they develop, and what you can do to help.

jawathehutt 03-26-2009 06:37 PM

Once I get the Deus Ex section downloaded Ill start downloading some of the older maps and some assets and putting them up on lucasfiles

LordJhredmo 03-26-2009 09:55 PM

Yes, I understood that, Mav. Thank you.

I have very little space on my HD left as of now, unfortunately. If I had more I'd be contributing to any transfer. The reason I said "they" was because I was not part of the group, otherwise I would have said "we."

M@RS 03-27-2009 08:05 PM

I only downloaded my two skins, mainly because I can't find them anywhere else on my PC... : /

Threepwood4life 03-28-2009 12:43 PM

Its a shame that FileFront is closing so many mods and tools will either be lost or spread across various sites I got quite a few mods and maps for both Battlefront games but hopefully they will be around again on another site

Gametoast is making a downloading site.

Kept forgetting to post this but most of you have probably already heard.

Welcome Back

LordJhredmo 04-16-2009 08:26 PM

Not! It was not an April Fools Joke. None of us Staff members knew about the FileFront coming back and it was unexpected just read in the welcome back message. It was bought back by its original founders before everything went in the "dump".

omgwtfbbqlolzorz 05-24-2009 09:51 AM

Yes they are shutting down.
And I have some nice ocean front land in oregon at a low price

Bokken 05-24-2009 04:36 PM

For your spammer's information, they were shutting down, but the original owners bought it back. Next time, do some research before you make a total ass of yourself.

Says the one who necros topics to make pointless posts then whines whenever he is corrected. If you do something stupid, apologize and learn from the experience, don't start fights you won't win.
