Yea no kidding..
I doubt filefront has any economic value to the US and world economy... :shadedshu
So yes I am saying that is just a plain stupid idea on your part.
dam, i can't believe this, i love filefront:shadedshu
Wow, that's upsetting.
I've been using FileFront for years. Always been my most trusted gaming related site
Sucks...Really sucks... Should have been Fileplanet instead. Fileplanet should burn in hell.
FileFront was my favorite! If there were any game mods I wanted, FileFront would always be my first choice. It has the best download speeds. I don't want to have to use RapidShare or MegaUpload, they are so much slower. This sucks big time.
Edit: Well thankfully it is only being suspended and not permanently down. If it's only suspended, there is a chance it may come back up in the future.
I feel like I belong here already haha! Every time I mis-clicked onto FilePlanet and was asked to pay I freaked out and shunned it FileFront, we will miss you.
That doesn't make it a stupid idea to save a company that people use and preserve some jobs. It makes it a bad choice from the standpoint of the US government, but not a stupid idea :shadedshu
At least filefront doesn't flood the market with useless cars that no one buys.
things aren't looking too good . . . although it might re-open later down the road, the general word floating around is that all the files they host will be lost. Which would mean that if the site goes active again later on - it'd be a clean slate with nothing available until people start uploading.
I'll miss it - it's one of the easiest sites to upload to, the whole process was quick, easy, and straight-forward . . . unlike the complicated mess that it is to upload to other sites.
3DGAMERS / FILEFRONT RIP , 2 of the best IMO.
Now what do we do?
Oh and btw current economic conditions
Give me a break , everyone is blaming the economic for everything and i have a hard time believing that. How long has filefront being around?
That sucks, one of the few free/no-reg gaming file sites out there left, especially that transferred at speeds of 20+mbit. Damn.
quite a long while . . .
TBH, in FF's case, I might be able to believe tough economy . . . simply because of just how MANY files they host. A lot of the game-specific sites were seeing a continued growth in file uploads, but a decrease in the number of visitors to the site . . . which translates to reduced income.
But, I truly have no idea what was behind the decision for closure, perhaps the company that owned the servers went out, or decided to cut them . . . who knows, y'know?
Either way, we're not left with much in regards to good game file hosting. FPSBANANA comes in a close second, but their uploading process is a royal PITA, plus, their site tends to load a lot slower than FF ever did.
I honestly don't know of any other good download sites. I got EVERYTHING from filefront.. Especially regarding stalker, I don't know where I'm gonna get my mods now!!

Sad day in gaming. I love filefront. Crap like fileplanet SUCKS.
Well maybe they lost a job or something, bad timing i guess. Fileplanet is nice for older games or older stuff, but if you want to download one of the new demos, well good luck with that lol.
I poop on fileplanet, 45 minute waits?, yeah, screw you, *navigates to filefront*
so does anyone know who will take filefronts place.
this sucks, Fileplanet can go screwthemselves, I use fileshack.
They have lots and lots of visitors, they can only blame them self for a bad business model. Many great things in life fail because of bad management.
BYE BYE MR PAY TO USE SITE I DON'T CARE
I still have
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED?
Everyone pick a game and start downloading everything for it
Also I can dibs on their sweet server hardware.
Meh, a good torrent site or 2 is all you need for your mods and patches.
