It took some months of slow uploading and one of my external HDs even broke in the process (luckily I keep 3 copies of the U64 files on 3 different HDs), but finally the Unseen64 files archive is completed! You can download the whole backup (screens / videos / details of cancelled games already available on Unseen64 + files of cancelled games still not added to the site) on the Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/@unseen64
I’m still waiting for our server provider for a response to know if there’s a good way to create a proper site export so that it’s usable even offline (that would be cool). If that is not possible i’ll just upload the latest XML export file from WordPress, so every text will be saved and importable somewhere else (there are already some older XML files uploaded on Archive). If you know a good way to create an offline export of a huge WP site, let me know by email: [email protected]
We also opened the Unseen64 Discord server that will be mostly used by new U64 authors to collaborate together on articles and research. If you would like to write new articles on Unseen64 send me an email to [email protected] and I’ll create your own site account to publish new content and share an invite link to the U64 Authors Discord.
As always feel free to write any questions in the comments below or send me an email, I’ll read everything ASAP.
Huge thanks for your help and support :)
You are AWESOME for caring so much about preservation beyond your own site. Thank you so much for sharing it all on archive.org.
You could simply use wget with some settings.
wget –mirror –adjust-extension –convert-links –page-requisites -e robots=off –no-parent –no-check-certificate https://www.unseen64.net/news
is what I use for my u64 backups. It didnt save the vids but every article and image.
thank you Maik! i’ll try that :D
