Hey guys, Rogue_Clone here! Just 2 quick things: #1 Is anyone else having a rather difficult time trying to download files, or is it just me? And the weird thing is that it's not all of the files, just the ones labeled "NEW". Which brings me to my second question: #2 Has anyone else noticed that the Halo Filefront home page is acting a little weird? For example, everytime I log on there are always 13 people. And they are all of them guests, ALWAYS. And then it says I have 6 NEW files and 8 NEW news items, when really they are weeks old (except for UBE_Chief's "The_Library", which is the only actual NEW item). If you are getting these results, or something similar, go ahead and share it on this thread. I want to know I'm not alone! If you know how to fix these results, go ahead and tell me while I bake you a cake or something. In fact, here's something in advance: :beer: Rogue_Clone

The FileFront network is undergoing some serious overhauling at the moment. Unfortunately, there are plenty of kinks to be worked out, but rest assured that they are all being reported to our IT team as they are discovered.

@Caprica-Six Here's the download link to one of the files. There's six of them that are not working.

@Zamamee Seems like there's always something to be fixed ever since the sites were "upgraded".

So, it appears that you guys fixed a few things on the site, and I really appreciate all that y'all have done. I hate to be the bearer of obvious information, but I still cannot get the download page to show up, let alone download, the first five or six files. All other files lead me to the proper download page.

However, if you do recall, y'all uploaded a file that was simply named "Test File". Now I know it said not to download the file, but I did it anyway. I apologize. But there you have it: I was actually able to download a file!

What I'm trying to get at here is that y'all should delete the files that don't work and then re-upload them. But if y'all have already tried that, then I shall eat my own words!

Halofiles is currently being run by one person (me). I am aware of the issues that you have mentioned and they have been reported as Zam has said. Currently, there isn't much that can be done with regards to getting files downloading again.

A little update you might be interested in, is that fact that files uploaded to the Halo 1 side of the site appear to be the only ones affected by this, and it is only files validated on or past August 17th.

Files uploaded to the Halo 2 side seem to be unnaffected by this issue.

Now, I have managed to set up temporary links to some of the files listed here http://halo2.filefront.com/news/Situation_update;48224 but gone are the days when anyone actually bothers to READ the site news anymore. :(

I have explained several times through site news that files validated on or from August 17th are not downloadable but like I said earlier, news just seems to be faint whispers on the site these days.

The "fixed" files have been set up with temporary links in their actual descriptions. Other files I listed in that article are not available anywhere else. I have searched, but cannot find them.

I have asked their users to reupload them, but again, it went unnoticed.

Please continue to use the site as best you can. If you find anymore issues, let me know.
