    This is a site I'm using to archive some popular frameworks and information in case anything every happens to rune-server. There's a formatted list of all the links and also a raw text list if you want to paste them into a mass downloader. I'm thinking of actually writing a front-end to this thats not just a single php file, so if you have any suggestions let me know.

    If you have anything that you want archived, post them here. This site is paid until January 2022 and it's set to auto-renew, so it will be up for a long time.

    Original Matrix and Arios releases would be great additions.
    Cool idea though

    nice this looks really good, forgive me if you already added but if you haven't already it'd be a good idea to add a tools section for things like toms cache suite and lins interface editor etc, datmaker

    Good idea to keep the links alive
    Thanks, Kevin.

    I'll definitely archive those, I have got some of displee's already I think. It's hard to find these archives scattered around Rune-Server and google isn't much help these days.

    The only thing I'm debating is whether to archive all the 700+ caches since they tend to be gigabytes in size. There's not a hard limit on GB but they take forever with my upload speeds. I've also decided not to include every OSRS release that Polar has because it would fill out the links really quickly. I have decided to keep a few OSRS revisions though, namely any that I have a server download for or any choice revisions like #1.

    I'd suggest providing an rsync server, to make it easy for people to host mirrors and keep them up to date with minimal bandwidth/manual intervention required. I'd possibly be interested in running a mirror if you did this, depending on disk usage requirements.

    I've been working on a cache archiving service for new engine clients which stores the data internally in a content-addressable format. It is converted into the standard main_file_cache.dat2/idx format on demand. This has several benefits, one of which is deduplication - the amount of disk space required to archive every single cache we have should be vastly reduced. (Another advantage that naturally drops out of using a content-addressable format is missing files can be found from nearby caches if the checksum/version are identical.) I'm hoping to start running it in production in a few weeks.

    I think it'd complement your project quite nicely, as my main interest is in archiving the original data (clients, caches and XTEA keys) and not servers, tools, documentation, etc., which you do seem to be archiving.

    I went through the whole downloads section of rune-server and runelocus twice. One time for 317 - 742 and one time for > 742. I've used waybackmachine a few times. The only site I haven't been through is moparscape. However, I'm finding new things every month or so. Yesterday I found a 613 client and its obfuscated version (also called runescape.jar) for example.

    I wonder where this idea came from


    On a serious note: I think the RSPS scene has always needed something like this, a lot of files have gone missing even images, ill be uploading these to my own file-sharing site as well thx!
