BDFans seems to be back up?

Post by RAP » Sun Jun 26, 2016 11:23 pm

http://www.bd-fans.com/
The website was down after inactivity, and seemed to poof off from the internet (but I wasn't sure how long, I haven't kept track of the time). Martijn, if your there, are you gonna update the website regularly?

EDIT: Took a quick skim of some of the pages, some of them seem faltered: http://www.bd-fans.com/HighCarats.html
Some of them don't seem to have full-sized images when clicking the thumbnails: http://www.bd-fans.com/Natto-Cat.html
Worst of them all, I can't download any files from the website at all. :c

I found what appear to be downloads of all the shareware games except Diam Diam:

Boulder Remake: http://home.deds.nl/~bremake/download.htm
High Carats: http://www.gamezworld.de/showentry.php?ID=675
Natto-Cat: http://aaronmaupin.com/
RoX: http://autofish.net/shrines/rox/
DX-Boulderdash: http://www.steffest.com/dxboulder/ (but not the newest version)

and the commercial games:

Greensy in the Wabe: many hits on Google, none are the original site and the ones I checked looked like demo-only.
Digging Jim: http://dieload.rxgettst.tk/download-dig ... -full.html
Mr. Matt: http://wrotniak.net/works/mrmatt/mrmabout.html

NOTE that I didn't actually try to download anything from those pages! Content might be absent or full of malware or who knows what...

I also hope that Martijn will fix the missing resources (graphics, file downloads) now that the site is back online again! :-)

If those missing resources keep being lost for whatever reason, I still have some snapshots of this web site available (although my latest snapshot already has the same missing files, while the last snapshot before that "incomplete" snapshot still misses the new "Emerald Mine" section that was added later). So if Martijn should not fix the site, I could make the last "complete" snapshot available as an archive site...
