SWBFdepot is now open!
« on: April 08, 2017, 10:00:27 AM »
SWBFdepot.com is a file storage service with similar functionality to dropbox--but just for the SWBF1/2 community.

Modders and asset compilers can request an account from me to upload their assets to a private folde, then create anonymous share links to their assets/maps/etc.

What you should know:  I host this from my home with a QNAP home server.

What this means:
  If it goes down, it could be from a power outage at my house or it may mean my IP address has changed. Let me know if it is not accessible--if my IP address has changed, I just need to update my DNS record and all will be back to normal.

This also means that all transfers count against my data limit for the month, so I ask that you don't make mass downloads to back up the file server.  I will back it up locally, so it will be a safe system.

Finally, this also means that you will not be bombarded by advertisements when you just want to get an asset.


For asset uploaders:  The asset link will need to be modified for the correct port number.  There appears to be a bug in the QNAP software that inserts a wrong port.  Just let me know and I will help out.

Thanks to DEVISS for uploading a bunch of assets already.

I have a 10 year lease on the domain name www.SWBFdepot.com, so these assets will be around for a long time.  I can renew it again in 10 years if SWBF/internet/computers as we know them still exist!  After that, well, I will be a pretty old guy, but we can talk about that later  ;)

To create a share link:

step 1:  select file, right click, create share link
step 1a:  optional, set password or expiration setting for link
step 2:  create link with 192.168.1.201:8080
step 3:  very important--replace 192.168.1.201:80xx with www.SWBFdepot.com:8080

step 4:  if you request it from me, you can connect a remote mount to dropbox or other remote system--select remote mount
step 5:  choose a supported system and transfer your files


The link must look like this format:  http://www.SWBFdepot.com:8080/share.cgi?ssid=0N4wQRy

notice that is it NOT https and the port number MUST be 8080

and if you forget a link, click on share link on the left, as in this shot.  You will need to use www.SWBFdepot.com:8080 plus everything after that.
