This is it. The F1Legends has been shut down forever.

:cry:

I will try to update the GPLTD links and upload tracks and updates that where created by F1Legends here to SRMZ within the next days.

I also have the replays of the first server on tracks lacking verified records on gplrank. I felt that some alienish laps on those tracks shouldn't be lost...

I find it weird that someone who gives so much to the community over the years, throws out everything on the window. And it's not about the downloads - all the results and forum topics... The site and league administration could have been taken over by some other racers from the league. Our beloved HGPLM league stopped activity in 2011 an its website still available (with a 69x download mirror btw.)

True words Fanjo.
That is also what I think.
I can understand that there might come a point in live that you can not go on anymore (e.g. health issues) or you don`t want to go on anymore (other interests virtually and/or in real life) with GPL and league/ homepage administration for whatever reason.
BUT I guess you wouldn`t just shut down your great website GPL Weekly. And I wouldn`t to the same with GPLWORLD website (its subdomains host some GPL mods and Spa67 ;) ) and GPLRACER league.
I am sure we would both ask here at SRMZ if there is anyone who is interested to take over what we and the community have created (by using and participating our offer for GPL (website, league)). And if there would be no interest to carry on, well then that`s it. Then it will be shut down forever.

When you have been so dedicated to your hobby for such a long time I can not understand why you quit it without trying that your inherit will live on somehow.

Same is for example with Thomas Laechele`s updates/website. He wrote to me that he didn`t expect that there is still much interest in his GPL stuff.
Obviously he was wrong on this as he was missed. The people still use his great updates. I think they are among the best track updates we have for GPL.

Well, everyone is different.

So in case anyone plans to shut down his website, league, or other facilities of GPL, please contact the GPL community here at SRMZ and we will see if and how we could continue and safe the files. :)

Well DB I don't understand.

In the post #23 you wrote : "Thanks Rookie, thanks Stefan..." as quoted above so I thought that you' ve read correctly my post #21.

All is saved !

All files are ready to download on the page that is pointed in my post #21.

I can't be more explicit.

(There's only the content of the forum that is for the moment not available cos' I have a technical problem with it).

Greetings. :hat-tip:

Well...

This is exactly why I thank you Rookie... I had a look to your wonderful site and I'm so happy to see that page dedicated to JackSeller works, I've just didn't realized (at the beginning) that you saved everything...

So, forget my post#28... Sorry...

And once more a huge thank to you Rookie !!! :hat-tip:

Sorry Rookie,
I tried  to DL Zelweg 71, Urbanya and Mosport rain from your link in post #21 but it send me to the closed F1legends page with a 404 Not Found response. :think:

Did you save the files somewhere else?

Thank you

Ok guys.

We could use some help. :)

According to the GPLTD it is easy to know which tracks where hosted by F1Legends:

Track Author: Jackseller:
- Österreichring (Zeltw71) 1971-> done
- Mosport Rain 1967-> done
- Urbanya  1967-> done

Track Author: F1Legends Team
- Jops Siffert Circuit -> done


Ginetto and me are working on it to host them at SRMZ.


But it needs some deeper investigation which track updates where created (not just hosted) by F1Legends or Jackseller.
For which track updates is F1Legends or Jackseller the author?

The only chance I have to sort that out is by going through the big zip pack by jxeboy (thx again!) and check which updates are named F1Legends or Jackseller.
So, if anoyne could tell me which track udpates were done by F1Legends or Jackseller that would be much appreciated. :)

Stefan

If you look in my spreadsheet that you saw here http://srmz.net/inde...topic=12651&hl=

Filter on any filename containing "jack" or "f1legends".  Also filter on any author = "Jackseller".

Will not be 100% correct or complete but these 3 lists might give you starting point.

Ok Ginetto I understand (sorry english is not my native language)

In the "Le site" file I've extracted all files (like tracks, addons...) to save time when I've done the "Ghost" version of the site (excluding also the forum section).

All files are in the "Archives pdf" file.

I translate : "En Pdf et Jpg, des éléments archivés pour aller au-delà de la simple consultation du site. On y trouve aussi les exports des courses, les circuits, les addons et tout le reste."

>>> In Pdf and Jpg, archived elements to go beyond simply consulting the site. There are also race exports, circuits, addons and all the rest.

In the "F1 LEGENDS - archives pdf", when unzipped you have 7 folder. In the "UPDATES" folder you have "Circuits et updates graphiques pour Grand Prix Legends" then "Urbanya" and the track is the file "urbanya.exe".

For Mosport Rain it's "Mosport Park Rain" (folder) and "Mosport_Park_Rain.exe", the file of the track.

I expect it's understandable, I'm better in french.
