Archimedes games/software collection

Postby Sanxion » Thu Aug 31, 2017 8:26 am

Hi all

Is there a collection of Archimedes software/games that I can download together - perhaps a torrent or zip collection?

Thanks

Have a look on here:

http://jaspp.huber-net.de/

All the stuff released by JASPP, they have rights to distribute. There's nothing for the Arc like stairway to hell, or world of spectrum - lots of people still enforce their rights. A bit of judicious googling will throw some more - I'm a little reluctant to post links to anything that will get developer's backs up...

Please note that the huber-net.de subdomain redirection was only a temporary workaround to avoid firewall blocking of port 9000. Please always publish and use the official URL for the forum, http://forums.jaspp.org.uk:9000/

That was the top hit on Google at the time (and still is by the looks of things!)

Hopefully Google will switch over to the official site at some point, it certainly scraps it enough as do various other search providers. A Google search even turns up a snapshot of the site as a higher ranking!

The site was upgraded last week to allow me to sort out various issues, such as switching to reCAPTCHA for registration and altering the port. The site was available on port 80, but up until now it's been port and URL redirected to port 9000. The port/URL redirection was turned off this morning, so https://forums.japp.org.uk will now take you to the site.

At some point I need to alter all the internal links, not to mention posts I've made here and on ROOL, so for now both port 80 and 9000 return pages and existing external URL's will continue to work.

EDIT: The site is now using SSL and I've kicked of a Google site crawl, so hopefully it will appear in searches in the near future.

Things seem to look better now, I am currently changing all my blog post references (which seem to rank high in Google (maybe only when searching from Germany?), no idea why - it can't be the number of visitors!) to the new forum URL https://forums.jaspp.org.uk/.

Jon, maybe it would help if you add the forum's URL to your YouTube postings - my experience is that Google ranks this quite high in its strange algorithm.

Have fun
