Underground-Gamer (UG) has Shut Down 19


Underground-Gamer (UG) was a Private Torrent Tracker for CLASSIC GAMES

This Private Tracker has shut down!

An Official Message from the Staff @ UG

1. What happened? TL;DR: We have legal problems, courtesy of one of the “copyright protection” groups. That’s what you get when you have organizations whose sole purpose is scoring points by taking down sites. They don’t care about what they take down. They just do what they are paid for.

2. Is this the same thing as with BG? BG’s shutdown was pre-emptive. Trust me if I say that this one wasn’t planned at all.

3. Does this mean UG is gone? No, we are not gone.

4. Is this related to you closing invites recently? This is what closing invites was supposed to prevent from happening.

5. How/when will we get to know more? irc://underground-gamer.com/#chat , we will release new information as it becomes available.

6. Is the user data safe? We went scorched earth on the server – everything that COULD be wiped, was. Everything that could NOT be wiped was thoroughly encrypted.

7. Will UG be back? See #3. We can rebuild it. We have backups. We have the technology.

The Underground-Gamer IRC is still active, however it will be shutting down soon

The unofficial replacement IRC Channel is #UG on irc.esper.net

    Sucks, but indeed, at least temporary, the site has been shut down, for legal reasons.

        Game in question was from 98, they care not if I game is still in circulation. They likely being the players association or the league itself, whom only cares about royalties generated from their brand & players.

    Why don’t all the members just put everything they got on piratebay or kickass torrents so it ensures that these files won’t be lost forever? That would be the easiest way to put the files in more hands so it is at least backed up where nobody can touch it.
