File sharing

Recommended Posts

Since due to the nature of this forum, file/image sharing is used quite frequently, I thought to present some alternatives to the widely used Gdrive, which I don't like so much, especially since the last TOS change.

File Sharing
To share large files there are several options that also do not require registration.
The first is File Hosting Online, which supports files up to 25 Gb, encrypted and also includes a Virus Scan that ensures safe use

Another good option is Gofile, free to use, privacy focused and unlimited Bandwith. No refistry needed. While the files are accesed or downloaded at least one time a week, they are never deleted, otherwise inactive files are deleted after 10 days.

If you prefer to use P2P, that means to share files directly from PC to other, without a hoster in the middle, there are also very good options, which permits to share files and folders without limites of type and size.

The most easy to use is O&O File Direct, a small Desktop app (sadly only Windows), very easy to use

1 Open the app and drag the files/folders you like to share in its window

2 Optional adjust the days and amount of permited downloads and if you want a password

3 Share the link which apears in the app

Done

The only limits are, that the receptor only can download your files, when your PC is online, on the other hand this permits that you can stop the download in any moment, going offline or shutting down the PC. The other limit is, that the files to share can't be in a protected folder.

Her are an Example with a list of Search Enines (Html file 423,56 Kb). While I am online, you can download it

Videos

One of the best options is Streamable (need a free account, inactive videos are deleted after 90 days in the free version)

Alternatively you can use Streamja, a simple Video sharer with good privacy, free account optional (nick, mail)

Images

Ok, there are a lot of Image sharer, most used the known Imgur, because of this I add only one which offers some advantages over Imgur. ImgBox (free account) is a reliable platform to share and host images like Imgur, but it make it very easy to upload and post dozend of images simultaneous, selecting all the images you want and drag them on the window, offering coresponding bulk codes from the selected images to post them with one click for forums (BBcode), Html and others, fullsize or thumbnails. More since Imgur used since some time the hated webm formats for gif images, hardly accepted in most forums.

Nice one, but only 1 Gb free. Anyway a good mail service and to host some files.

There are also 2 good OpenSource alternatives with similar features, the Swiss kDrive, with 15b free account and the German Filen, with 10Gb, both encrypted services.

There are some more, but only self hosted (if you have an own server space or  an old PC used as such)

Another good platform to store and share files of any type, Teknik (OpenSource). To simply share a file (up to 1Gb/file) no accuont needed, but file is stored only 1 day, with a free account no time limit, but only 5Gb storing. Cheap storing plans up to 100Gb, also include mail service. All strong encrypted.

https://upload.teknik.io

Another good one to store videos and any other content (streaming, pictures, , music.....) is Speecher (FOSS

Speecher is a new generation social network where you are able to create your channels and broadcast anything you want! Music, podcasts, art, pictures, videos, movies and much more... You are not a product in Speecher and free speech is a real thing there. Speecher works on a web3 idea (Blockchain). Your content and channel is your "digital space". Your Speecher-ID is proving that your content is within your full control. You are generating and holding social platform.

I think that this one can be a good platform for sharing TDM vids and screenshots

We would like to recommend a new and modern site for transferring files. https://swiftsend.io
Main advantages: 5000 GB transfer storage, files available for 365 days, password protection

Hmm... 🤔

https://postimages.org/

  • creates actual image urls to the file (a lot of image sharing sites share links to pages, but not to the actual file)
  • optional: resize on upload
  • optional: specify if you want them removed after a specific time.

When you copy the url-list in a post and then after press enter, they get included as images into the post automatically.

Example:

Copy paste it in the post like this:

https://i.postimg.cc/59h22HB5/closemouthed-shadows-2023-06-08-11-19-50-237-68-234-6-75.jpg
https://i.postimg.cc/zDbfNwgX/mission1-2023-05-24-11-41-31-0-0-0.jpg

Then put your cursor after the last image url and press Enter. All images are placed in the post as images.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?
