I will see if I have any old files kicking around pertinent to the SPF. Perhaps old backups from years ago.

Sh...oot...Now my favourite tournaments haven't been copied, because I was too slow... I will see if I can at least find some tournament rules saved locally on my pc. Thanks everyone who has helped so far with migration!

If it stays down, I'll work on getting the build guides submitted to the Strategy Compendium, as it looks like many of these are archived in the Wayback Machine, whereas the mat/pat/guardian writeups I checked were not.

Ok well... on my side it ended at the middle of Pindlethon 3, due to - I guess - my phone not working anymore when there are too many quoted stuff/too much characters to be loaded (i used to get through some pages here or there when I have a break at work or during the day, it worked pretty well until then).

We will see for the remaining of the stuff so (maybe there's a hope if I got you right @Rush?), but if it is really the end, I'm glad I failed on repetitive tournament moving instead of a big guide like @Gripphon's one.

Thanks to everyone who put any effort into this until now at least, and if we got a new window, thanks in advance to anyone who will be able to put some more time in!

Finished the original Untwinked 99er thread by kestegs. I'll pick up some more threads likely next week, if not sooner. Haven't decided what yet, though.

@art_vandelay @WoRG hey maybe you have an update to make? With this last one alert on diabloii site availability, I guess I would put efforts on specific stuff instead of the repetitive Pindlethons' thread migration. Are all the time version guides already planned/recuperated on your side or not at all as stated?
I am talking specifically of those ones:

We seem to be running out of time... I'll grab something from the list later today.

Speaking of the list, the SPF Hall of Records has been moved, just wasn't updated.

@Helvete, are you moving the Time Travel Vortex? I think I read you said you were working on those.

Well, I can post a preliminary 1.10a/1.10s guide with all info available on those patches which would cross two items off the list. I don't want to take it away from @Helvete but it would be nice to have that info stored somewhere. I'd delete it if the Vortex part ??? comes out to supersede it.

As for superchests: Since I last talked about those, things have changed. Fruit made a generator that can simulate all patterns for all super/sparkly chests in all patches/difficulties and areas. That makes any list of patterns found by users as well as stress tests obsolete, except to check whether the pattern generator is correct. So I'm not sure anymore whether migrating those lists is worth it. What is your opinion on the matter @pharphis , @Grisu , @Pb_pal ; what should happen to your threads (1.07 LK, 1.10 RoF and 1.13 RoF respectively) in light of this new development?

Mind you, most of the speculation about superchests/sparkly chests in those old threads was mostly half truths and the stress tests that @jjscud , treeharl and others did were time intensive and still didn't yield every pattern (especially locked patterns) despite their best efforts.

With fruit's help I've already prepared a superchest info thread that contains state of the art information (debugged by fruit) about their drop mechanism as well as the most complete list of superchests locations known to man. I'm just waiting on fruit to give me the go ahead to post the generator at his point. He wants it to be as bug free as possible before release!

Kind of sounds like a mod question, to some extent. But FWIW I'm all for posting the generator and full details

Well, the program itself is perfectly FAM, it doesn't ever touch any characters or game files. It's standalone and produces a summary of how many rune patterns there are for each chest as well as a complete list of all patterns (in .txt format) if the user wishes to have that.

So @maxicek, can the generator itself be posted? I think fruit told me that you said posting the patterns behind a spoiler was allowed but I guess it can't hurt to double check.

Worst case scenario is that people will have to ask for it privately which I feel is a bit unfair since that information should be available to everyone and not just 'people in the know'. Plus: fruit should get recognition for making it!

I have very limited time on my hands but I would like to try and help if able. Specifically build guides is something I read from time to time and I would like to be able to do so in the future also.

But several things are unclear:

What is the motivation for the migration?
Why is it not done by backup old, import to new forum?
Why is the secrecy needed? (PMs)
Has anyone explored programmatic ways of getting the posts?

Marked SPF Hall of Records as done by @ffs. Moved @Helvete's Vortexes, hope you'll reclaim/repost them soon enough :)

Taking 1.00 News, Info and Gossip next.

@SirName
1) preservation of two decades worth of research and effort / forum history, it looks like dii forums might permanently go down
2) Rush might be able to answer
3) Rush might be able to answer
4) not to my knowledge
