The hosting of Gamebox64.com and around 70 of the Zzap! issue scans has been closed, a week or so earlier than I thought. I'm looking into getting new hosting.

A co-worker was offering free hosting but that has fallen through but I've found somewhere that does a year for €60 and should be compatible.

See Gamebox64 forum for more details.

Actually, even although the web storage space is meant to be gone and scripts can't be run, the images a re still there if referenced directly! So the scans are actually still there.

I have gotten new storage space anyway so the domains should be pointing to the new site within 24 hours...

Might be a good idea to start uploading the files now actually! :)

All scan should be back now.

Gamebox64 will take a bit longer with a re-write form Perl to PHP needed.

A randomly picked review of Paradriod '90 on the Amiga for proof of scans being back. :)

Thanks for sorting so quickly. Using them for Comp 64 updates.

Ah, the Paradroid 90 review that put me off actually buying it. The mention of vertical only scrolling killed it for me, but I played it on an emulator years later and realised how much I missed out.

Same here. It was only playing it years later (to write the Making of Paradroid for Retro Gamer) that I really started to enjoy '90.
