Requesting assistance: we need to archive all MUGEN data from axfc now

Downloads that were once working on the axfc uploader have been becoming broken or corrupted left and right. I find this very worrying because if nothing is done, we risk losing a whole lot of MUGEN data forever, each day that goes by.

For this reason, I would like to request assistance from these places that I know frequently posts links to axfc.

 

 
 
I would help but I don't know anything about uploading at mugenarchive, so you do it guys

I'd rather these creations were rehosted on a website where I can actually download them.

Being unable to download from that website is just as good as a dead link.

With the sheer amount of great content that's on there, they need an affiliate with free, no money involved or member only downloads. I wonder why it even changed the download policy. The Mugen Archive is biting more off than it can chew if they're asking for all the stuff from AXFC. Too bad Muvluv is dead, a site like that would be perfect for uploading that stuff in one big archive. MA shouldn't be trying to do this unless it goes back to what it was back then, but I'm just saying.

These characters are, memorable,cute & imaginative, without Elecbyte, none of this would be possible, they really made an amazing engine. I'll always love these chars, from my favorite fancharacter Think to that awesome Angeloid Astraea, these sprites are memories to be loved. They're all my favorites.

The lesser of two evils. I feel bad for MUGEN Archive but I don't wanna help... It has good stuff but stuck with money involved ads with member only downloads that kinda tarnish the "freeware" part of M.U.G.E.N. with it's download policy so I think it's best if these characters hosted at axfc where shared at somewhere else than Mugen Archive.

If it means anything, GameBanana has a M.U.G.E.N section.

but mediafire has ads too even them nasty popup that I can't block

hosting is never free and there is always someone who must pay so why is it a big deal?

and it's members only because of DL accelerators so blame people with their DL accelerators that ruin websites

So they claim.

 

Point is, anyone who's been permanently banned there (and that's quite a lot of people after the kerfuffle a while ago) cannot download from that website unless the file is small enough.

Don't post like this. Yes, we already know about the adfly thing with Archive, but thats still not a license to post like that.

Host it on a bunch of dropboxes or megas. Makes most sense really.

You're not permanently banned for questioning the website's motives.

no iam not however there been a few times i have personally questioning the website's motives. there also been a few times i should have gotten ban and still am not why your guess is as good as my. i dont really go there as often as i did due to getting countless messages from other users either on there or the ones who got ban on here but i dont see any of the adfly ads unless its for non registered users?

I have not forgotten the bullshit that site has pulled on me and many others. To this day I am still perma-banned in there for no reason besides lies along with a majority of fellow mugen players/creators.

Why on our daily lives should we even consider helping them if they cannot realize that what they've done was rather stupid.

You don't say? Then that means MFFA is a scam?

nope, MFFA isn't an archive, it is an index. the difference between hosting or not hosting

BTW can you fix the dead links in your sites?

 

@GarchompMatt & @Flowrellik

please do not be selfish, sorry you got banned but preserving history is serious stuff, we don't want mugen content to be lost by the day even more

Doesn't mugencharacters.ucoz still exist?

 

Also, archiving characters here would achieve much the same thing as with mugen archive, but better.

But it's effectively lost for anyone who isn't an established member of the Archive. If a website is dedicated to preserving content, especially if that content is for a freeware fighting game engine, then it shouldn't have any kind of usage restrictions.

 

Besides, those of us who are banned can't help out the Archive anyway.

"Attack" refers to voicing criticism or general dislike with how the website is run, for the record. I got permanently banned simply for poking fun at their motto.
