    Bros, it looks like this LP might be dead after 15th of March. As in, dropbox will not support public folders after that time, and none of the alternatives I checked (OneDrive, Google Drive, Flickr, Imgur) allows me to upload images and easily create lists of links to the images (because none is keeping original file names). Other options like going back to Photobucket and managing its seven accounts needed for the LP or creating 12000 links manually do not look very appealing.

    Suggest me a solution if you have one.

    EDIT:
    For example, flickr links look like this:

    This is unusable for our needs. I would need something like this:

    This way I can easily create and paste lists of links needed for the updates.

    This is what I do, except I use a script to turn them into html and fit them on 1 page. It gets really wonky after 10+ pages, though. And Chrome casually wants to grab 10 Gb of RAM to open such a monstrocity.

    MicoSelva, try out postimg.org

    If we use Direct Links, these turn into:
    https://s20.postimg.org/4k05fkflp/bg2_up01_000.jpg
    https://s20.postimg.org/tejn9n0fx/bg2_up01_001.jpg

    It will keep the original file names, but there is a randomly chosen ID for the image in the link (4k05fkflp/tejn9n0fx etc).

    Also, does anyone know which LPs use Dropbox links?

    In theory, replacing should be somewhat easy if you use Notepad++ with a python script. You'd still need to copy/paste your updates as text into a file, run the script, then paste them back.

    If I understand what MicoSelva is saying then at the very least, Imgur can put albums (and non-album images?) into original filename order. Also, like Nevill suggested, postimg might be a good option to check.

    All right, while my attempts to PDF the LP failed miserably (nothing worked on any browser with any addon or outer service in the web, and whet it worked - it broke down forever) I managed to save all 83 into HTML files. One page - one .HTML file. Such file is ~30MB big with notable final update of 50MB size. Spoilers can be opened and closed. No ads were saved in them.
    Now here is question - where to upload them? Mega? Google Drive? Yandex? Mediafire? I surely use Hamster one (exclusive in potato) because nobody will touch it.

    Now time to save BG1 LP... done

    Thanks for your efforts, guys. So far I have not found a solution other than 1. Getting some dedicated www hosting and storing the images there -or- 2. Going back to photobucket with a bunch of flowers, a box of chocolates and apology sex for betraying it.

    We will see how it goes after the 15th. I am too lazy to deal with this until it is totally broken.

    And we are officially dead.
    I will try to fix this over the weekend, but no promises, since I do not expect to have a lot of time.

    Alright... It took most of the day weekend and some coffee, but all main BG2 updates should be fixed. You guys owe me a beer.

    I will deal with special updates and BG1 a bit later (hopefully today). Right now , I need sleep.

    I've done a rudimentary check, but there might still be some broken or incorrect image links. If you encounter any, let me know.

    EDIT:
    Ok, all BG1, BG2, The Black Pits and special updates (including PoE) should be fixed.

    This LP has now been fixed AGAIN, after photobucket told us to go fuck ourselves.

    I might have missed something, so if you see any broken images or other errors, let me know.

    As a bonus, here is a save file pack containing (most of) this LPs save files done on level-ups in case you want to try to recreate some of The Codex adventures, or export the character for your own use.
    It is possible you will need to install the same mods as have been used in this LP in order for the saves to work correctly - you will find the list of mods in the original post of the thread.

    I did mention I wrote DBZ fan fiction in the past.
    However, that particular picture is from DBPH (I think), written by my bro Tytus and illustarted by his gf.

    Comte, this is a paid web hosting service, which I have been using for my old DBZ fan page, like Roxor already guessed.

    Not with the anime - I do not have the patience anymore for what they are doing with that series right now.
    However, I do keep up with the manga, which is a bit behind, but has much better pacing and less stupid stuff.

    So, I just fixed the entire LP AGAIN after yet ANOTHER hosting service crapped out on me and 82 of the updates were unreadable because of invalid image links.

    This was probably pointless, since nobody reads years-old LPs anyway.

    You're welcome.

    EDIT: I tried to be thorough, but if anyone sees broken image links, let me know.

    Have you thought about PDFing it and just putting it up as a download link or something?

    This Lp is a symbol of Codexia, you can't let it die :love:
