    Thinking about the disappearance of a lot of download sites

    Since I started watching and downloading things I want (mostly hentai stuff), I cant help but notice just how many of the previous sites have been shut down for no reasons.

    Even only on hentai only websites, there are
    henarchive
    verarchive
    18-sex.us(the only one I know that the owner is arrested in Taiwan in 2013)
    share-films(site itself is still active, but only showing SIGNIX(what does this even mean?))
    hentai knight
    hongfire (no more good stuff)
    hotfile
    depositfile
    hentai-crave
    Hentai santurary

    And now hentai-otaku has no news (showing only advertisement, no selling of web for now) since Dec 15. Even if there is announcement of upgrading servers from mirror site and the web itself is still up, there has been no response from the support team email and the patreon page of the owner has been disabled(self or company unknown).

    It has been nothing but disappointment

    Re: Thinking about the disappearance of a lot of download sites

    Most torrents on this site came from sukebei nyaa, I mostly DL from sukebei for various h-stuff, hongfire is good for finding h-games and their mods, but at the same time when you ask for technical help you're more likely to be ignored than to be helped. Sad panda is also a recommended source for various h-doujin/manga/cg/etc but their dl torrents also are uploaded on sukebei. You can argue nhentai but for me their uploads are compressed considerably and the torrent dl is so slow.

    Re: Thinking about the disappearance of a lot of download sites

    The problem is that I want some of the older games(e.g. balder force) which seems to be better if there is direct dl. Even in this place on request not many people will have the things I want. Also the torrents mostly does not provide updated versions of specific games, which forces me to find other websites. I just wish to know why they shut down at the very least

    Re: Thinking about the disappearance of a lot of download sites

    Awwww...people liked the Sanctuary project?? I'm proud to have been a part of it. .

    Sorry to hear that is a contributing factor to the disappointment. There were reasons for the abrupt disappearance though. Cannot go into the specific details as many were personal matters. But thank you...majority of the reason why I upload is so the younger generation can have stuff from my era. Nice to know that Sanctuary was able to help in a sense.

    It will be fun to have some sites like that again. I want to play some of the older games. Maybe some time later next year

    Re: Thinking about the disappearance of a lot of download sites

    Most of the site the op listed are blogs of uploaders in AS.
    For the doujin updates, if the source can't be bothered to provide an update, then no one can magically bring you a new version (unless faking the version number, which some uploaders do)

    You're highly unlikely to find more updated version elsewhere than AS, because everything get reposted in AS typically in no more than 24 hours anyway.
    Most will try to dup you into buying a premium account to access premium-only links.
    You might as well spend your time and effort buying legit from dlsite/dmm.

    We, on the other hand, ran out of stuff to purchase because almost everything is covered. What get released is only a fraction of what we have available.

    Datafile and Bigfile shutted down in 2017. So there is a large chunk of old content disappeared from the internet.

    A lot of people have moved on. You'd notice that even here a lot of the power users are gone, requests aren't filled at the same rate as they used to.

    It's so sad to see many file hosters have died.
