Holy moley! This one still works!?! The one I found had dead links everywhere!

Great find, Cyber! :thumbup:

The Meshworks link goes to a Azrael Keyframe comparability list, the Hero Files link downloads a file called Hero Conversions that is full of Hero Files, the links to the DC and Marvel  conversion pages are gone, Hero List is a page that explains which meshes you should use for which character, the links are outdated, as are his suggestions for where to find the meshes.

It may be obsolete, but it could still be of some use.

Which browser are you using? I'm using Chrome and they work for me.

I was messing around and found that this archive:

http://web.archive.org/web/20060113131803/http://newpowerinc.com:80/hgpages/housequake.htm

leads to what I think may be the last capture of this version of NPI. There seem to be one or two more skins in some of the sections.

Speaking of NPI: Hereís a little Crosspost:


Going through NPI, I found Links for HouseQuake and Valandar that list all their working Downloads. Definitely worth checking out.

HouseQuake: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://newpowerinc.com/housequakefiles/*


Valandar: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://newpowerinc.com/valanderfiles/*

Thereís also a Link like this for Paradox, but Iím not at my PC, so I donít have it with me. But these Links will tell you exactly which Files are available by each Content Creator. Theyíve been really helpful to me.

Have we posted this yet? I know it's not a content site, but it's kind of interesting as far as FF history goes.

That was not in the list of Wayback Machine Archives, and it is my fault: this is the site that linked me to the archive of NPI that started this whole thing.

It's listed now. Thanks!

Found this one kind of interesting, don't think I've ever seen it before.

I've never seen it either. It kind of reminds me of Alex's place. I'll look around in it and if it has anything I'll add it to the list.

Hey! the e-mail address is Alex's. Very interesting...

I gave it a try and downloaded some hero files (some are working, some broken). It looks like an older version of Alex site, it have links to his "goodies", like EZ Danger Room and his mods.

Oh yeah, that's definitely Alex's place.  Good times.

It is the Freedom Fortress. Just a really, really, really old version of it, by the looks of things.

It's amazing how much the site has improved since then.

I think that I actually have Alex's older hero recipes. I'll have to check and see, though.

The thing is, what do I do with them? I've found several, like RTTingle's avatar (two of them), that I don't think are anyplace else, and, since he isn't around these day, I can't really ask him if I can post it to a NPI Yahoo group. I'm still not sure what I've got.

Sure!  Go right ahead.  :)

Altered the title somewhat. It's kind of misleading, since it's what's old that we are looking at.

Just for yuks, I tried all the keyframes at the NPI archive, and most of them are still there. If you don't have them, and think you might ever use them. I suggest you download all you can. For best results, it seems that opening the link in a new tab keeps you from shifting back and forth between windows, but you will be left with a lot of tabs. Whatever is the easiest way for you.

Just as a rule of thumb: in the skins and meshes, if it has a picture, it has a skin most of the time. None of Valandar's mecha seem to be there, and while many of the maps and FX are there, a lot are not.

Also: nothing from Ewzzy is there.

Just messing around, but the pages after the first page of The Skindex are gone. There were no meshes in the first place.

I have seen that. I couldn't find any skins in the site. I'm still on the fence about listing empty sites. Maybe a separate post in the Living List?

Yeah, unfortunately, I've only found 1 Skin so far. It looks like everything else may be held in various Yahoo Groups.
