LucasForums Lost Forever?

5 posts in this topic

I've spent a lot of time trying to navigate the old Holowan Labs forum on the lucasforums site through WayBackMachine. It is very cumbersome and there are a lot of dead links that were never archived. And things start to go off the rails if you try to navigate to older pages. It would be nice if there was a way to get access to the old Holowan Labs database files (With just the forums posts/threads and no user data) so an archived version could be reconstructed. I would have already attempted to pursue this myself, but I don't know who to contact about it.

I would be willing to host and build something like this on my own server, I could even see making it into a GitHub repository for posterity's sake.

I'm hopeful that someone can get me in contact with whoever owned the old site, but I fear there has been too much time since it's demise.

Any leads would be much appreciated :).

Modding Tools (T3-M4's Astromech Droid Center)

There's also a TOC in  T3-M4's Astromech Droid Center listing all tools:  https://web.archive.org/web/20150906172255/http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=152392
Most links will be dead anyway, but it gives a nice overview/ a place to start hunting them down.

Savegame Editor / Cheat utilities

General Modding Tools

Skinning/Modeling Tools

Other useful tools for skinning/modeling not developped by LucasForums members:

Dialogue/Sound Editing

Other useful tools for sound editing not developped by LucasForums members:

Scripting

Mod Compatibility Tools

That's at least better than navigating Lucasforums' archive by hand (esp. on mobile).
