Peder hosted my two free AGS games for years with nothing in return. For that I am eternally grateful!

Agreed, Peder's contributed loads to the community over the years. Even so, I never thought he'd be the basis of a truther movement.

It's been this way for a while. Come to IRC if you want the real news -- away from the lying moderators (lügenmoderator)

...except AGA, I guess. He still comes in from time to time.

Notice how Lenny is conveniently left out of this narrative.

Why do all of the "Where's [name]" threads, turn into this?

There were two and both made by the same person. [insert conclusion here]

There was another about snarky that was moved into the rumpus room too. Also same person. I know that some people can be disappointing. But no reason to start a fight it 3 different threads under the guise of “wheres this person”, etc... If we feel the moderators are not being civil, it doesnt mean we have to be the same way and vice versa. Yes, sometimes we all lose our cool, make mistakes or are just rubbed the wrong way by someone. My advise, apologize if you did something wrong either privately or in publicly... as long as we try and be peaceful and kind. Like I said: its ok to have a bad day. But lets not start three threads just to pick a fight.

So, speaking of Peder, in case anyone missed it, he has posted a torrent of all games hosted on AGSA.

It's about 54 GB in size. It doesn't include all the AGS games and has some unfortunate duplication but I think it's safe to say it carries a major portion of AGS history. It'll likely become and likely already is the only source for downloading certain games. So consider checking it out and seeding your favorite ones if not everything. And if you know any video game preservation enthusiasts, spread the word. (. ‿ . )

I would have preferred an upload to the Internet Archive, which he mentioned way back when, as a torrent isn't the most reliable way to ensure these games stay available. Still, good on him for doing this.

That's arguable. There is no actual way to predict what would go down first. A torrent could easily outlast any centralized source... if there is enough interest in the content.

I downloaded the torrent but unfortunately it's only 99.59% complete since there are no seeders.

I'm missing a few titles, and unless a seeder shows up, I'm not gonna be able to seed the entire thing.

Since the site is still up, can you download the missing titles from there and have your client recheck the download? I'm sure Peder will come back at presumably the only 100% seeder at the moment if not

Working together Peder, CaesarCub and myself fixed the torrent issue, its availability is 100% now.
