Title: Old Mod Portal Archive
Post by: SupSuper on March 26, 2018, 08:17:37 am
When the mod portal was facing issues, I feared the worst and ran a web scraper (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Web_scraper) to grab every file I could just in case the worst happened. And well, it did. :P The result is I managed to collect all the downloads before they were forever lost. Originally I was gonna save this for migrating to the new portal after careful curation, but given the delays on that front and repeated requests for lost mods, I decided to provide them here:

https://openxcom.org/download/oldmods/

This is an archive of all the working downloads on the www.openxcom.com portal as of 10th October 2017. Only files that were publicly available were archived, any files that were deleted by their authors or unavailable due to server issues will still be lost. In case of duplicate filenames, you will have to figure out which one is the "correct version". Checking the Date Modified might help, although it seems old files all had their timestamp wiped in a server move in 2016.

Disclaimer
Any mod authors that want their old work removed just let me know.

Thanks for this, SupSuper!

If you ever get hold of the website source code and know a site to host, I'd be interested in helping maintain it.

Many many thanks!! I got kind of lost with the filenames though, fortunately I'm still able to search for mod's name in the mod portal, so I can see filename in there  ;D
