Graoumf's point is taken, though--it's always appreciated when people are willing to host mods instead of let them disappear into the ether (so, yay MTS!), but when possible I do prefer that the modlist links to the "official" location, where presumably it can be consistently kept up to date.

That said, if there are any other mods with relocated-but-still-official locations, please let us know.

I have never understood the stigma some people seem to think should be associated with people who host mods that were once public, then the site went away. I mean... private betas going public is a little tacky (unless the modder retired and never released it).

Maybe I am stupid or something for not understanding.

Either way, I don't care. I see no reason to deny someone something they might enjoy because they either joined the communities too late, overlooked it, or lost their copy.

Yeah, we're talking past one another just a little bit, I think.

I don't have a problem with caretaker hosting of unsupported stuff, but sometimes the author has set up shop somewhere else and we don't know about it.

That seems silly. I fail to understand the point of having it somewhere for people to download, and not bother telling anyone where.

www.rosenranken.org is a huge website which hosts many fine German mods, so either it's down for a few hours, or the link changed. I'd wait a bit.

The Germans speak about Rosenranken here - I don't speak german so I understand nothing. :P

Google Chrome has a translate page function, it is not perfect, sometimes it is not terribly accurate or readable. Russian to English can be good because function may translate the meaning of the name rather than transliterate it. Sati Kazanova becomes Sati Casanova...
I had a quick look at the link, translation seemed okay by the standards of current functions.
Anyway, the function may give you profound insight into the theory of translation...

@Graomf it looks like they don't know.  Jastey looks like he/she is trying to look into it but is having difficulty as the website was their primary means of communication.  Apparently he/she had some mods on the rosenranken and he/she can provide them (I am guessing it will be by pm/email) but I am not sure which mods are his/hers...

Hello.

"NUJEAH ROMANCE" appears to have a broken link.
"Yoshimo Romance" has a current link that leads to a 404 page - but the mod can still be found here.

Thank you, hook71 for posting the temporary link to the Rosenranken mods. Rosenranken is officially moving, but it is unclear how long it will take until it is up again.

The Ajantis BGII mod has an official mirror now (Mirrors for my other mods will follow):

http://kerzenburg.baldurs-gate.eu/downloads.php?id=62

Please add this to the download link and thank you!

Would be cool if you would correct the links for my Ajantis mods.

Magnificient Magic Store by Tapio Kivikkola looks to be dead for good - can't find a single place where it's hosted anymore. I have v.3(.01) copy in case someone is interested in hosting or just obtaining it.


If it is newer then the version I host, shoot me an email (same as my forum name <at> yahoo dot com), or a PM.

http://gamingnerdsrus.co/forum/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=182

Pierre's Kitpack [Non-Weidu] is dead. Uploading a new one now (and updating the modlist with the new link).

Edit: I would add it, but it seems I am unable to see the captcha images again. Yes, tried new browsers, etc...

Anyway, here is the link:

http://gamingnerdsrus.co/forum/index.php?topic=382.0

Anyone who wants to add it for me, feel free.

I have windows 8 and mcafee.  it will not let me download this softward off the chez.fr site no matter where the link is..stating that it is not commonly downloaded and will harm my computer.  I get red flags and options to either run or delete.  It would be nice to download this program without the flags, it makes me suspicious of viruses and the that the site in non US.  Anyone else having problems like this?
