What happened to MPC Gamers?
« on: February 11, 2018, 05:01:43 PM »
I started out on the MPCGamers site long before Jedikiller decided to hang things up and this site was spun off from it. It got me wondering: what happened to that place? Does it still exist at all?
Works in Progress:
--Star Wars: Battlefront Legacy (Phase 1 released - Phase 2 in development, base game due 2017)

JK would know the final disposition, but it split into this site and Creative Matrix, which was was shut down after a couple of years.

Our full history was the Wei Li (weili) started us off as a mac focused SWBF board, then MacXgamers, MPCgamers with JediKiller, then SWBFgamers.

I'd be curious to know if Jedikiller or someone has an archive of the site, though I have to admit I'm not sure if that is possible with a forum.

It is interesting though, looking at some old captures of the site on the Internet Archive/Wayback Machine:

Sure, since Led formed SWBFGamers out of MPCGamers in a way SWBFGamers is an archive of it. For instance here is the first topic linked in the side bar of the web archive link you posted http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?topic=1695.

Yep, the skin is different, but the database was transferred to SWBFgamers, so it contains those posts.  I believe, however, that MacXgamers content was lost in a crash.

BTW, here is Creative Matrix
https://web.archive.org/web/20110203004127/http://mpcgamers.com/

the SWBF1 redirect on that page went to SWBFgamers.com

and here is the old macxgamers
