Just as info, i downloaded the whole archive and it takes nearly 3 hours of time

1time 11 February 2018 17:11

It is only 8,1GB in 30 964 files. That is not that big.

Go for it Iggy, then re-upload for all to save them the hassle!!!

Much appreciated :cheese

It took me a whole night to get it with my small connection. But thanks :)

Heh, I meant to write megabytes, but as far as my Amiga is concerned, hundreds of megabytes is also quite a lot.

Will these files be accessable individually or do you have do download the full 8GB file.

Good to see some more Source code being made available

chip 12 February 2018 15:18

Thanks 1time, great upload

I downloaded it immediately :laughing

I will try to upload the whole Fortress BBS, which is bigger even than the Northern Palace.

the Fortress BBS spans from 1994 to 1998, and is 14,8 Gb crunched and 23654 files.

But i need to do it from a home with a strong connection. Not the shit i have at home.

Thanks for looking for the file. I've continued the conversation at the file request thread.

I might also upload the Fortress BBS collection, it is 1994-1998, but only weighs 7.4 Gbs here, zipped. I have a pretty nice connection here.
I think you should check when I finished, whether you have the same files or anything more. The archives are zipped monthly and each one of them have a filelist.

Hi gents,

yes, please upload all BBS & Disks backups you have. It serves the community! :)

happymondays 13 February 2018 10:47

I have finished uploading it, it is on the File Server in my uploads drawer.

dlfrsilver 13 February 2018 11:18

emufan 14 February 2018 08:01

There's a complete unknown Emerald Mine disk in there :crazy
"The Exception Three"
"only" 40 levels but still: it's been a very long time since a new one has surfaced.
Happy happy!

I have some other BBS backups and also some some 20 year-old Hungarian collection CDs here. Unfortunately I cannot create an ISO file from the CDs as they are hardly readable, although I will try and figure it out. And I have my own collection, waiting to be ADF'd, although I do not think there is anything special, except for the one data disk I created for MU The Double, when I added Hungarian NB I player and team data, only first division though, but it might worth archiving.

chip 14 February 2018 10:54

Which are the other BBS backups you have ?

Can you upload those ?

heavy 14 February 2018 13:15
