    Indeed, it's under attack, yet again...

    For anyone from the Poser/Comic group in HF who frequent this site, please PM me so I can pass on some info on our present circumstances!

    Hi.. I was just wondering... If there is an error 305 forbidden if that means it's down I was able to go there yesterday or 2 days ago so i know i'm not permantly blocked. I haven't even done anything to get banned. I was trying to get mods for aa2.

    There is nothing to fear. We have to wait patiently until Hong can solve the problems of the site. It is a bit unexpected that the site failed so fast again.

    When that happened in 2013 we established a second base here in ASF. But people left as soon as HF came back. Still you can find some mods for AA2 here.

    Sb3UGS is complete now. Support for old Illusion games has been implemented.
    The DirectX11 version is all you need, especially if you have Win10 with Anniversary update. Newest: v1.4.4
    Obsolete version with DirectX9 renderer can be found here (v1.0.54epsilon), but this version will not be continued.

    Re: Hongfire offline?

    well, to make the long story short...

    the site got attacked, most probably..... make that certainly some irate user. (i believe it's not warranted that we have annoyed a lot of people in the past)
    hong decided to take it down.
    it was restored temporarily.
    and now it's down again.
    no eta when it will be up.
    ... that's about it, i guess.

    The rollback already took a little steam out of my sails. I had just finished making some huge updates to my blog and gotten all my comics in one spot.

    @enimaroah, Lisa Hayes: I don't know if you guys genuinely don't know, or are just trying to evade the subject, but there is certainly a lot to fear.
      Spoiler: Ransom 

    This is what happens to old sites with decent traffic that do not keep up to date in security matters: they get targeted by black hats that want a piece of the ad cake. I got some friends working in net security and they're always talking about how everything is vulnerable and how easy it would be to fuck up this or that site. Usually people with these skills can make absurd amounts of money legally, since they're highly demanded. Too bad this particular individual seems to be not only a scumbag and a criminal, but also somewhat dumb. Dumb is dangerous with such a skillset.

    I'm really hoping Hong can get the show back on it's feet, but I can forsee a long void period. Patching up a security hole like that isn't easy.
