(Almost) no more broken links!

The following should show you just what's still good on a wayback site;

1) go to wayback and put in your old site - in this case www.gammapatrol.com

2)Pick a capture to go to, say one in 2005

3) Once you're there, go to the top of the page and add "/*" to the end of the address

4) you'll see there are 1,259 pages archived for the site.

5) on the right side of the screen is a small box for searching, "filter results". Type"zip" and you'll only see the zips for the site.

6) there are 149 zips you can try to grab. Any from the right time frame should be good - any from after the site went down will still be bad.

I've used this with the Skindex and Gamma Patrol and got good results. Electric Freedom, Heroes for Hire and Champions look like they have almost 0 links left.

So, using the method described above, I went to the base "newpowerinc.com" address on wayback. There was a total of over 6000 entries saved, and over a thousand zips!

Going by date, all but the last 10 still appear to be good. Some of these are probably available other places, but I saw zips for the following;

AlyCat, Bloodshadow, Housequake, Matrix, Tekkaman, Titan, Valandar, Vertex, Paradox and Zuludelta.
