    IAF Database Missing?

    Hey all,
    First off I'd just like to say I got this mod yesterday I can't stop playing it. It's ridiculous. In a good way. Anyway so after trying the campaigns I've found so far (Phalanx, Telic, EFR) I was hoping to get some more maps and the like, but all the links to the IAF database have lead me to a page saying "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" I was wondering if someone could shed some light on this. Very sorry if this came up in a different post, I glanced over many of them and didn't see anything about this. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    The IAF DB is unlikely to be making a return. Your best bet is the downloads section on http://www.alienswarm.de/
    It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

    Welcome aboard!

    There are a some swarmers left, that probably would show up if a game is scheduled in advance, here at the forum. We are few, but, mmh, let's say, exquisite.

    You might consider installing steam, and join the BCG group. That way, you can see who is online, and send/get invites, raising your chances to get a game together.

    Singleplayer mode swarming is good, but multi is where the real fun is.

    And another tip: don't use M$ IE, it eats babies. Get the Firefox instead.

    Welcome,

    when you have joined the BCG group in Steam I can invite you to the alienswarmde group. We play regulary on a german server.
    Most of us start the game from Steam as Non-Steam-Game: Alienswarm, so it is visible for all that a game is going on.

    Hello AS people! I'm an old time casual AS player, I think I went by iwikecheese or something. I stopped playing due to the difficulty to just pick a game and go.This month 2 of my friends finally got ut2004, so I knew I'd have to make them get AS. I downloaded the game and the only servers are german servers that get laggy for me so I decided to start a server of my own. So if anyone wants to play hit me up on steam. I joined the BCG group and AS group, my name is SuperRipped.

    Tempting. Post here too, if you would. Some of us don't always run Steam. Plan enough in advance, and I'll definitely be there. You couldn't keep me away.

    Beware, though. That mutated moose looks cute, but is a creature full of cunning, nuts, bolts, and mischief...

    That IAF db will maybe make a comeback. Is there any backups of the content? The design was really nice, I think.

    I have an old copy of the FAQ on a hard drive somewhere, but it's not really that useful any more. Many speedrun challenge records were made after it moved to the IAF DB so unless sniper1 or BiG D has backups they might be lost (if I have any they will only be the very early ones).

    Doesn't seem to be anything on archive.org, except for the Telic website.
    I think I can love you

    Some of the times might still be in the thread. I'm pretty sure the Cargo ones are.

    I certainly don't have any backups, and from the sounds of things sniper doesn't either. Let's just pretend I had the best time on Salvage and call it recovered, shall we?

    I don't know, but I doubt you're the one who had the best time on me.

    I refuse for i do have all records recorded to my Hdd

    So any cheap attempts to claim my kingdom will be futile

    Too bad all that FAQ and guides are lost, can we just make an effort to recover any of it?
    Someone will host the content for sure.

    NO! I have everything from the IAF-db backed up. My server got hacked and I really wasn't sure how much the site was getting used anymore so I just let the domain name expire. I can dig up the pages if there is interest for them...

    We can host it for you as IAF.alienswarm.de ?

    Send me a pm with the download link. Please put everything into one big archive.

    Cheers

    It's a pity IAF Database went down, it was a great source of information for new players and for me personally when I joined the squad. By the way, I see that Telic Campaign's website expired too

    I guess it's a bit off topic, but as far as I remember, there was that picture of a marine looking upwards with two rockets behind him on some light brown background? "Reach the stars, join the IAF!" or something close to it was written above. It would be very nice if someone gave a link to it. Thanks in advance!
