GameFront is now officially Shut Down

Post by RedHardcore »

At exactly 7:20 UTC, Gamefront became unresponsive while I was trying to save the Battlefront 1 mods. You will now have to visit their new site FilesNation, but everything is now hone for good. At 7:19, the site was still up and the last mod I ever got to download from that site was Elite Sides mod 1.0.

http://filesnation.com

Also, has anyone by any chance tried saving all of the SWBF1 mods as well?

Edit 1: Nvm, its back up. It was shut down for about 6 minutes.

Edit 2: It seems that the site is here and there going offline and back online again. These could be the signs that GameFront could shut down at any time now.

Edit 3: gamefront.com is gone now. gamefront.online however is up and working. So I guess it's semi-saved. FilesNation is the new forums.

I saved some of the Battlefront 1 Mods from Gamefront but only the good ones. I know people want to save as many as they can but I feel like the better maps need to be saved so people can keep an interest in the game. If people are stuck with a bunch of first time maps, they will most likely not want to play on Battlefront 1 or even Battlefront 2 for that matter. I have only a third of the downloaded mods for Battlefront 1 totaling about 390 mods/maps. As for Battlefront 2 as you know, I got around 875 mods which is probably around the number you have if you were downloading everything from the site.

What's among the mods/maps you have? When they go back up, I want to try out some of them.

Looks like Gamefront shut down after all, now the website is escapistmagazine.com. Good thing you downloaded all the Battlefront 2 mods from the website!

EDIT: Ace gave me the link to the new forums, thank you!
