Website host of game content, 1996-2012

FilePlanet is no longer hosting new content, and "is in the process of being archived [by IGN]."
FilePlanet hosts 87,190 download pages of game-related material (demos, patches, mods, promo stuff, etc.), which needs to be archived. These tend to be larger files, ranging from 10MB patches to 3GB clients. We'll want all the arms we can for this one, since it gets harder the farther the archiving goes (files are numbered chronologically, and Skyrim mods are bigger than Doom ones).
To help: Download and run Schbirid's script. This grabs the files and the source page, for its metadata. You'll need to know what the start and stop parameters are - get those numbers from Schbirid in IRC.
Here is a thread keeping track of current status (currently on 60k).
What We Need
- Files! (approx. 15% done 5/10/12)
- /fileinfo/ pages - get URLs from sitemaps (Schbirid is downloading these)
- A list of all "site:www.fileplanet.com inurl:hosteddl" URLs since these files seem not to be in the simple ID range
