Where's my file? New site FAQ.

Please wait...

Published by FileTrekker 3 months ago , last updated 3 months ago

 

As always with a new site launch, there are a few little teething troubles that crop up that will need to be sorted out. Rest assured we're doing everything we can to fix any bugs that you may report, however so far these have been very minimal!

Thanks for all the feedback. Please keep it coming and we will get things fixed ASAP.

One of the main questions has been about files. Here some of the most common questions we've been asked so far;

What has happened to the files I've uploaded over the past year?

Don't worry, this content is safe and sound. To explain, when DBolical purchased GameFront from Defy Media, they placed a copy of ModDB with a GameFront skin / logo up as the website, as it was felt that this was preferable to having no website at all.

This means that your content is safe and sound over at our sister site, http://www.moddb.com/

Any links to this content that point to the GameFront domain name will redirect you to the ModDB version of that file.

We're working hard to bring that content back over to the new GameFront system, and we will post more information once this work is completed.

Which old GameFront files are now available again?

We've entirely restored all the FileFront network subsites, and these are available now on our "Games" page.

We've restored as many of the old files as possible, over 100,000 infact, however, there are still gaps, these mostly relate to files hosting on the main GameFront site but not part of our game specific pages.

There are also some patches and demos which are not yet available.

We're still restoring many of these files, so they will slowly re-appear over the coming weeks.

I had an old account on FileFront / GameFront, can I use it?

Yes, possibly. If you had an account on the FileFront game specific subsites, then you will be able to request a password reset as long as you still have access to the e-mail address you used to register.

If your account was on the Gaming Forums, then your account still exists, but you will only be able to log in if you ported it over to "FilesNation".

If you had an account on both FileFront and GamingForums, and these share the same e-mail address, then these have been merged into a single account with the best stats of both.

Otherwise, you will need to re-register. If you would like to re-claim files you have authored, please contact us using the link in the site footer, or on Discord.

We will add more questions here as we get them.
