What's the current problem with the non-working server links?

Looks like it might be a hosting issue.

In the mean time, if you are desperate, you can search/download for just the filename here: http://cbm8bit.com/8bit/commodore/search

Example: For Arcticfox, the search would be ARCTICFX_00382_02.zip
You can copy/paste the web link into the search box then just erase everything before the actual file name.

It shouldn't be too painful if you are only after a couple of games.

It looks like Archive.org's Wayback Machine archived the site in 2014, so 99% of the games should be available by adding https://web.archive.org/web/20140926165926/ to the link.

Example:
Impossible Mission link is http://gamebase64.hardabasht.com/games/i/IMPMIS1_03731_04.zip
Add https://web.archive.org/web/20140926165926/ to the beginning, results in

https://web.archive.org/web/20140926165926/http://gamebase64.hardabasht.com/games/i/IMPMIS1_03731_04.zip

I wonder why no one seems to care. I think this server is down for more than half a year now.

The fact is only 1 person has been paying for server for the last 10 years.
Maybe they can no longer afford it, or have other priorities.

The complete GameBase pack is still available to download.
so nothing to worry about. icon_smile.gif

Ok, but then it might helf if you
- place a donate button
- remove the link or link it to csdb

I guess not all people will download the full package if they just need a game.

For quite a while we are in a kind of deadlock situation:
Our forum and website require a major revamp, the donated server space has vanished and there is no-one available to take care of it.

Unless someone offers to help in these areas the situation will apparently remain as is! icon_mad.gif
