Downloads is down!
« on: May 06, 2014, 08:56:04 AM »
The downloads area is down at the present time, I'm not sure when it started. I noticed a reported file and realized all of them were like this. It's not a problem with the downloads themselves- it's that the downloads folder is missing from the FTP.

I'll have things going as soon as I can, but it's possible I may have to add all the downloads back manually- which will take time.

Thanks for your patience.

Downloads partially restored from an old backup. Anything newer than 10-13 is unavailable. But it should be fixed, it's just a manual process.

Downloads may still be down. No errors anymore but I can't open anything that's stored here.

Sorry everyone. I may have to do a reinstall of downloads entirely. I have a list of what's there, but I may have to manually add it. (each one)

Update:
Downloads should be working- BUT. Only up to 11-12-13. Anything after that will need to be re-uploaded manually as I get time. The files are not lost, they are on this pc (which also happens to run my cab :Whistle:). As I'm back to work tomorrow, it may take a few days. It shouldn't affect anyone wanting to upload anything new though, so fire away!

Still having some problems, but as I'm working I can't do much (I work 4-12's). When I get my days off Tuesday I'll implement our new system. We're going to use A-Drive for downloads and link back here. If anyone knows anything bad about A-Drive, now's the time.... :Rolleyes:

None of the files have been lost by the way, even the few I don't have I can get from elsewhere, if not from the original author.

The following folders in Downloads have been restored and are hosted offsite:

Flipperless Full Screen-0 Files
Full Screen Original B2s Direct B2s-3 Files
Full Screen Originals (1 Screen No Backglass)-1 File
VP Tools-3 Files
Direct B2s Backglasses-4 Files
Mediapacks-5 Files

I'm saving all the info about each download (imagelinks and description) in case Pintrepid does an uninstall/reinstall of Downloads. That way I can Copy/Paste and remake all the threads should I have to. Then I'm uploading each to ADrive.com and pasting the link to each download. That's what's taking so long.

I am missing a couple files from a couple categories, but it's nothing a pm or another site can't retrieve for me.

Ok, they finally got my account setup. (I had to switch to a paid account to do this). But FS B2S tables are running. Let me know any in this category that aren't.

I have to add Mystic Marvel to FSB2S, but that should be it.

Still to do:
all Desktops (59)
Widescreens (>10)
Wheels (10?)
Other Emulated Games (2)

Ok, I'm knocking off for the weekend (my days off are during the week) :Banghead: :Cussing:).

Here's where we're at. Everything is restored with the exception of:

4 WS tables
4 Bingos
All Desktop Tables

The desktops I'll chip away at (there are 59) as I get time.

Remember, all wheels are in the forum in the "wheels" thread.

When you upload a wheel, start a topic with the name of the wheel as your title. It can then be downloaded as an attachment. I didn't see the need to put it in downloads, as this is much simpler. If you're looking for a wheel all you have to do is type the name of it into the search bar and search. Or just scroll.

If you have a table or backglass you want uploaded PM it to me first. I don't have to "approve" anything but since I'm using this system, and the server is quite possibly the problem uploading the normal way won't work because it will probably be corrupted during download. By PM'ing it to me I can add it to our database I just paid for and give you the download link that you'll put in your release thread. (Upload URL).
