>>962071>Can't archive it with Archive or Wayback because the owner is preventing anyone from viewing threads unless they have an accountCocksucker is holding the forum and it's information hostage for some GoFundMe parachute.
>>962092>how to shoot yourself in the foothow does this clown think this will get him any pity?
>>962092Yeah seriously wtf is this. It's like "pay me $5k or all these random attachments get it". He knows he can archive everything easily but he's intentionally making it hard.
reshax is archiving it all and tVGR already has a backup of everything
>>962649Yeah but all the post from obscure games are gone now
That seriously sucks. 15 years worth of searchable knowledge on obscure/proprietary file formats now inaccessible.
>Discord killed another forumI can't wait for war.
>>962092>>962404Just pay 5k, download all informations, and the call the bank that it's a scam or something, and get your money back just to fuck with that faggot.
>>963920A sound plan on paper, but it would only work if the data was already uploaded and ready for download to begin with. And at the time of the fundraiser and website being shut down early, the information was only being considered for preservation, not actually being preserved.
>>962071I fucking knew that holding onto that one version of Noesis i got there that can do Splatterhouse models wasn't just me being a hoarding retard.
>>962071Is this some mentally ill internet marxist drivel or what?>we won't produce an excess because labor is more valuable than productivityThis is going to implode so fucking fast.
Good news for Zenhacks
...and bad news for Spriters' Resource.
>>964552>Zenhacksnevermind, they are gone, too.
Considering the current state of affairs, how many gaming research sites are still active these days? I know that facepunch, zenhax, and now xentax are gone. Is there anywhere else to go?
>>964800I see it once again falls to the porn industry to save the gaming community from its self-destructive behavior tendencies.
>>962071It's unironically over.
>>964895Adding to this, I'm glad I hoarded the shit out of everything I ever got off of there.I basically downloaded scripts constantly for games I'd never ever touch. Always knew it was gonna end to discord faggotry
Death to Discord and all Discord users
>>964926I feel this so much
I recently did a project that relied on xenhax a lot and I was able to save SOME interesting posts.Before the shutdown was announced the owner wanted to sell the forum. Initially claiming that he was lacking funds.Later on (and I sadly do not have a screenshot of this post) during an argument in another thread RIGHT before he locked the forums, the owner admits that funding was no longer an issue and that he wanted a new "webmaster" to manage and moderate the site.
Here are some replies I saved from that thread, mostly relating to discord, wish I saved more because it seems like most users knew that it was community poison.Discord is harmful not only because it fractures communities but also because it takes no effort to join a discord "server" thus taking your discord userbase and fracturing that into people who are constantly online and only look at that one "server" or people who just joined the "server" to chat or do discord culture (aids) here is an article that goes into detail about the cancer that is discord: shystudios.us/blog/discord/discord.html
And here is the final message left by the owner. IMO what really happened was a cabal of discord freaks "FELT" as if their work wasn't being appreciated enough? and that the forums let people, like myself, who otherwise would have NO IDEA how to work with some of these obscure game file formats find information and use it without "giving back" or something?Maybe I am wrong about the interpretation, let me know what you think.This final message also talks about FURTHER fracturing their own discord "server" so people who join it can't access certain info unless they have a "ROLE"sadly this is their own obituary, no one will ever find the xentax discord so it will exist only as a tiny group of upset guys who think their work shouldn't be publicly shared because someone might use it and not UPVOTE them or something? Eventually the members will slowly die irl or just leave/ stop interacting with that group. And no one will ever know. xentax will NOT be remembered now because these people got so full of themselves.btw even reshax (the new forum for normal people) already has a discord server, so who knows how long that is gonna last. The funny thing is I would have NEVER known about xentax if it didn't show up when I was searching for information about a file format on google. I was also planning on sharing my entire process on xentax before it was shutdown. Even with all the tools that I saved (some from zenhax which shutdown without warning shortly before xentax) I had to do a LOT of manual research and experimentation to get things working correctly. There were multiple posts from people asking questions that I NOW had the answers to but they deleted my bugmenot account I had been using and closed registration on the day I had finally finished compiling all my findings.
>>965045xentax should just be some anonymous imageboard that auto deletes threads after they hit a bump limit so somebody else can archive them.
>>965045Honestly based.Useless bandwidth eaters will mald and seethe.Total Freeloader Death.
>>965088so do you pay for youtube or disable ad block?
>>965109do you watch donutman and midwit video essays?
>>965111uh ohh the discord user got caught being retarded and now is making up a character in HIS head!
>>965112mald and seethe poopresh.
>>965113buzz and word cope guzzler
I hate the modern Internet era so much, Flash Kit did something similar (all their sounds and loops deleted) yet their forum remains but not for too long I bet.
>>965139People made fun of me for archiving everything I liked but I saw this all coming over 10 years ago as people slowly went down a path of complacency
>>965145There's a lack of YouTube archivers for one, we have web page archiving tools but videos seem too large to save, you can find a lot of deleted videos in playlists, Google could've terminated inactive YouTube accounts if people weren't against it (Gmail accounts are being deleted next month). Let's not also forget about sounds, we don't even have a proper search engine for sounds but text and images. It doesn't even feel enough to archive the things itself but the browsing sessions themselves since stuff that's being presented always changes. Wondering why there's no website where you could just reupload files of any format publicly and could be easily searched.
>>965147searched by anyone is what I mean, not like Dropbox or MEGA where you need to provide a link.
100gb dl. I want to play it so badly but don't have hd space!!!
>>962071conventional forums just aren't worth the hassle to maintain. it's an inevitability.even your favorite website 4chan doesn't bother archiving anything at all.
RIP. I used that site a lot over the years.
