Solarium: already bitrotten?!

I’m trying to find a replay Solarium from last year’s ifcomp, but the IFDB link is a 404, and the link from the ifcomp web site spews php errors.

Is there somewhere else one can still play this game?

The IFDB link I got worked fine. I suspect your problem was that some of the IF Archive mirrors are not perfectly reliable - if an IFDB link doesn’t work the first time, go back and retry it.

Thanks! That must have been the problem, I just tried again and this time it worked (ifarchive.smallwhitehouse.org/if … um.html#1e).

I’m really curious now how often this happens with the archive mirrors in general.

Um… “sometimes” is the best I can tell you.

If a mirror is down for an extended period, and I know about it, I can remove it from the “mirror.ifarchive.org” redirect list until I hear it’s back. This list is currently:

'ifarchive.smallwhitehouse.org',
'ifarchive.flavorplex.com',
'ifarchive.heanet.ie',
'ifarchive.giga.or.at',
'ifarchive.ifreviews.org'
