L4Y Closing Down
Posted Mar 21st, 07:31pm by Garner
Its been going 10 and a half years but sadly the time has come to say goodbye. In the coming weeks the site will close and all files hosted here will be no more...

If you are a site owner for a game we support and would like a nice big file of everything we host for that particular game, PM me with your website address and I'll send you a link in a few days to a tar.gz and database SQL dump of the files table so you can easily catalogue it on your own site. I'd like to think the files will still be hosted somewhere... once the site shuts I'll direct people visiting here to your sites so they can find where the files ended up. Consider it a parting gift from L4Y to other community sites!

I'll still be around and L4Y will remain mine. Planetary Command will probably remain online (address to be decided still) and I'm in the final stages of an Xbox 360 indie game - you'll hear more about that here soon...

For now, I wish you all (except a certain person in Mauritius who was legally bound to buying L4Y... but never paid up ) the best in everything you do and for the thank you all for the 3767 days we were online. 136 million page views and 4.5 million downloads are nice achievements and beyond everything expected when we launched in November 2000 with Decent 3 and Delta Force. Most of you here have probably never played either... !

The files have been given to several sites that host them now, i am not sure what sites but they are out there so just look around.

Thanks someone should add those links in here or somewhere on this site so that the games will keep being active like b4 when everyone could get the files from this site. After all these years this site hosted all those files for so many many years and now suddenly stopped !

you will probably find most of the maps at http://www.factionfiles.com/ but the other stuff such as mods and various files, you may have to wait until someone puts up and ftp attached to a site

I've got a copy of all the files... it's just really annoying to have to upload over 10GB.
I map stuff. Sometimes.

Files gets deleted from rapidshare after a month or so unless you have a paid account.

Mediafire would be the best choice out of all those as it does only require a free account to upload files smaller then 200mb or with a paid account it's 10gb.

I'll be damned, after thinking about all those nights on Red Faction and coming to this site everyday back then, It's sad to see it all go, thanks L4Y, you will be missed.

Hrmm, only just seeing this now, what a shame. With such an array of hosting options out there you would think they'd be able to keep the downloads active, probably just a time/effort thing.

Too many hobby gaming sites are closing, it's sad
I left, came back, left, came back, left, came back, left and now I'm back!... okay so I left and came back again!
