Does anyone know what's happened to PortableRA?.. Are the people behind it on these forums? The link to the download page on their website isn't working anymore.


EDIT: Thanks to webarchive I was able to find a backup of their original Downloads Page and see what the original download file links were to see if the files were still hosted. Thankfully they still are!



Video Installer:


There were many more links to various things on their downloads page though so it would be nice if they fixed it still.

Already exists, hasn't been updated in a while though.



Nyerguds also has a ModDB page setup for it too that shouldn't disappear in the future:


Pity the PortableRA guys haven't set one up too!

PortableRA is out of date, better use @FunkyFr3sh's installer now a days: https://funkyfr3sh.cnc-comm.com/

and Nyer's 1.06 page isn't going anywhere soon.

Anyway I fixed the PRA site in the interest of historical preservation, at least the downloads. Oh and mind the date, this topic was 4 years old.



Thanks Tore. Sorry, I figured it was better asking here then creating a new annoying thread.
