    On March 31st, 2019, FileTrip has shut down due to a couple of issues listed by Costello. It was a sister site of GBATemp used since 2009 and onwards for uploading homebrew, custom skins and the sorts. Most of the files have been transfered to the GBATemp Downloads section, but a few files (like the QQ3DS firmware) have yet to be rehosted.

    I imagine the GBAtemp download section replaces it at this point.

    I remember using it when I was into flashcarts for the NDS. Good ol' times. Rest in peace.

    In the first post, I quoted a response made by Costello. I forgot to include that it was also because of a lack of funding

    In case anyone wanted to see what the site does.

    I kind of hoped to see something like this: biiiiiie.
    Chaos still had the best 404 in recent memory.

    For what it's worth, a good majority of the FileTrip stuff is still being hosted, it's just in the site's download center now (well, again? It used to be there before Filetrip lol). It's mainly the personal files that're affected here.

    This was still a good place to find stuff for the NDS Flashcarts and what not. Still used it a couple times last year. Such a shame that people would upload illegal stuff. Ruining it for those actually using the service. Was nice knowing you FileTrip :(

    I'm more shocked he didn't post this news himself, he works for the site. :blink:

    Instead, we have what looks like a news report and a interview statement rather than a announcement.

    This is fun. :P

    Weird way to declare the site closed when you still can browse and download stuff there like usual :creep:

    You can even sign up to premium haha.

    but you can't upload files anymore and most downloads are dead.
    didn't want to shut down the site entirely since some files can still be downloaded
    that is, the filetrip servers were designed this way: the main server hosting the site, which had a little bit of storage space and therefore hosted *some* files, and then external storage servers (which cost the most). We couldn't afford the storage servers anymore due to, well, total lack of revenue. So I had to cancel these. But the site's main server is still alive, it hosts some files, notably the oldest files uploaded. These will still be around.

    yeah, I have to remove the premium page, signup pages etc. thanks WIUB
