Hey guys, Pete from Pete's QB Site checking in after....years....

Anyway, I just got an email from someone asking if there was a copy of QBRPGs.com archived anywhere.  I did a few searches and came up empty handed.  I also searched for V Planet! and didn't find a copy anywhere either.

Does anyone have a copy of these old QB sites still kicking around?

Thanks!

My site's still up, by the way! http://www.petesqbsite.com
Still getting between 200-300 hits/day and I still get email questions every day or two as well.  I think I will post an update.

Hi Pete, good to see you are still around. I have a full backup of QBRpgs.com but it's the site itself rather than a download of it, will need to check with Fling-master if he is happy to pass it on or see if I can do a proper download of it.

If Fling-master is okay with it, you should upload it to http://qbrpgs.qbasicnews.com !

When I was 12 V Planet published an article that featured a silly, unfinished game I was working on (I think I e-mailed it to Vance asking him to 'hold on to it' for some reason I'll never remember).  Seeing my game on a website like that was something I'd never experienced before and motivated me big-time to make games.  I can't help but feel that tiny niche site played a tremendous role in me becoming a career game programmer.

Anyone have any idea what Vance is up to nowadays?

VPlanet was probably my favourite QB site back in the day. Not sure what happened to Vance or QBshire for that matter, they seemed to have disappeared of the Interwebs :-/

I miss the QB days, though am happy it seems like many of us went on to bigger brighter things as a result Smiley

QBRPGS is on the waybackmachine, as you may already have found yourself: https://web.archive.org/web/20050308120747/http://www.qbrpgs.com/ seems to be the latest snapshot before it turned into advertising.

Maybe VPlanet is also on there? I can't remember the URL, but I remember browsing it and being amazed by all these things people did, back when I was ... 10? Cheesy

Over 3 years late to this thread. :O

I don't think I have a copy of the old qbrpgs.com site, unless it's on an old hard drive sitting in a box in my closet (haven't checked those in close to 10 years, dunno how many of them still work). But if wildcard has a copy of it (or anyone else for that matter), I'd be totally fine with them putting it up someplace.

So many names I haven't seen in ages, wow!

I'll check my backups to see if I have anything.

Randomly stumbled across this thread.  

I'm still trying to track down a copy of QBRPGs.com and V Planet!

Would love to put up a mirror somewhere.

Let me know if anyone has a copy. Smiley
