Ys F.A.N.s

Megaupload Shutdown for Piracy! It has a special history with me…

Upon clicking a megaupload.com link today, much to a sad ironic sense of surprise, I saw that image to the right appear! The sad irony is because back on January 29, 2007, which stands as a day of infamy in my life, a disgusting, miserable, angry, atheist piece of shit by the alias of Pruvmerong leaked my Felghana patch by, a) pasting the private link to it that I had given him, and b) uploading a copy of the patch to Megaupload and also pasting a link to that, and today, after almost 5 years I find that megaupload was shutdown! …….. Sad, amusing, thoughts of, “Wish I could be bringing Pruvmerong to justice like this! Oh, how I so wish he was one of the warez criminals that were indicted…”, etc.

But yeah, how about that, eh? 1/29/2007 was the day that I was first introduced to megaupload and sites like it and my life changed quite a bit ever since having run into this most vile, disgusting, repugnant individual that still walks the planet earth… That’s the bad side of Ys, ladies and gentlemen, it attracts the 99%! With 99% freeloaders and videogame thieves (read: ungrateful parasites that feed off of the work of others), other criminal malcontent behavior was always a possibility, but I certainly didn’t plan for dealing with it properly at the time, that’s for damn sure and I paid a heavy price for it indeed! So this shutdown does give me some sense of justice, in some way. And yet, I use file sharing/pirating sites like this (mediafire) to save bandwidth and host some patches still, so it’s not like I could condemn them all to hell in general, but THIS one, well, it just happened to have been used by the wrong warez criminal at the wrong time and as a result, it earned my hate and a minor sense of satisfaction that it will never again be able to be used to do to someone else what it did to me… And judging by the fact that the US FBI seized the domain and shut the thing down, it would appear that there were far worse warez criminals than Pruvmerong that were using it!

I’m occasionally asked about where to obtain older Ys patches since, well, I’m rather lacking with the rest of my website… As such, I threw these links up below in the meantime. Nothing has changed as far as domain name ideas since there doesn’t seem to be much creativity out there, let alone motivation (not unsurprising). No skin off my back though since I don’t much think about the loss of a full site these days… Anyway, here are the last up-to-date builds of the three most requested patches/files in question:

Ys I Complete ( YsI(US)v127.exe )
http://www.mediafire.com/?5e0inemjlz8

Ys II Complete ( YsII(US)v102.exe )
http://www.mediafire.com/?xjyv2vkxpsg

Ys Typing Tutor ( YsTT(US)v090.exe )
http://www.mediafire.com/?etmw3bjcgz4


EDIT (12/14/2008++): Added the rest for backup and reference.

Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys v95 (YsIV(US)v95.cab)
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?rdnxnmoy2md

Xak III:The Eternal R. v1.00 (XakIII(US)v100.cab)
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?nzejzvunmmo

Ys: Oath in Felghana BETA (YsF(US)v000.rar)
(This is of course the patch that Pruvmerong leaked, a vicious, bigoted, degenerate marauder that showed up from none other than GameFAQs, the worst of the worst when it comes to trolls and the psychologically disturbed, etc. I thought he might’ve come from “romhacking hacks.net” but I sure as hell was wrong about that!)

Well, the transitioning phase won’t go as smoothly as I had hoped. My hosting pal went ahead and altered his ‘arrowsmash.com’ domain to point to his new host provider, thus I no longer have a working site. He couldn’t wait for me forever, so that’s fine – I don’t mind a little downtime. In the meantime, I’ve set up a free web hosting account with good ole Microsoft to temporarily host this page and had the NO-IP domain ‘nick.serveblog.net’ redirect to it. It’s the best I could do on short notice.

I STILL need to come up with a new domain name! HELP! Gimme suggestions! So long as I don’t have one, the site will remain offline. The ‘serveblog.net’ domain was a freely provided ready-to-use type and I didn’t put a lot thought into choosing it originally. I had set up your basic blog using wordpress so it was a good enough idea way back, but then I quickly switched to this portal software so it stopped being applicable.

Anyhow, what is the site now? What speaks to ME and to the work that I do/did here? The answers to those questions would help one arrive at a more proper name for this site. And so, what would your suggestion be?? Should “Plight of the Fan Translator” be incorporated into it somehow? DeuceBag suggested www.thecrankyhacker.com but eh, I wasn’t sold on the idea… THINK! FAST! I need something lasting… Understand the significance: I would have to update all the patch documentation, any edited credits images, etc. to reflect the new URL so it’s gotta be good. If you’re one of my 10,000 standard useless, warez, freeloaders, here’s a chance to make yourself useful… Just email me the suggestion with the yahoo address provided below if you can handle that.

Oh, and just in case you get generous all of a sudden (which, statistically speaking, has a ~98% chance of NOT happening going by the current crop of “fans” I’ve attracted over the past ~6 years of my hacking career. Donor-to-freeloader ratio is about 2 per 100; read another way, for every 98 freeloaders, there are 2 donors), here goes that evil anathema that is the paypal icon:

P.S.

I got that final Felghana patch waiting for you right here! OH YEAH!!! It’s all finished!!! Come and get it… Then after that, I got an Ys VI: The Ark of Napisthim PC patch waiting for you right here too, because yeah, you’ve all been such great fucking fans! I mean seriously, who could ask for any better fans than you all? Not me!! OH NO! Not me! You’re so goddamn fucking insanely generous you’ve spoiled me rotten to the core!!! I’m rich and it’s all thanks to you! Rich I say! Hell, I could retire right now if I wanted to! SO STOP SPOILING ME! SERIOUSLY! STOP IT! Anyway, yeah, after that, I got an Ys Origin patch for ya too! Bet your greedy little warez grabbing hands would especially love to get a hold of that one, huh? Well, how about it? Huh huh? See, I understand… I understand perfectly well the drive to fill those warez coffers up with all the goodies you can grab a hold of! That said, how about one for Xanadu Next while we’re at it as well? YEAH, WHY NOT? I WANNA BE JUST AS GENEROUS AS YOU WONDERFUL FANS HAVE BEEN TO ME ALL THESE WONDERFUL YEARS! Thus, Xanadu Next it is! Xanadu Next it is! All set! Yeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgh!
Yours truly,

The big bad evil for-profit, non-anti-capitalist, non-neo-Marxist, non-something-for-nothing NightWolve
