Announcing the BKArchive

Today, Christmas Day 2013, I'm officially announcing the BKArchive (if you hadn't guessed already )

'So what is the BKArchive?' you ask?
Well, the BKArchive is meant to be your one-stop-shop for all things Banjo-Kazooie (and a few other Rare things, which are necessary). Whether your looking for a specific fanfic, or the very first Nuts and Bolts commercial, the BKArchive's got your back. It is built to be a digital time-capsule so you can bury it with a host computer and dig it up in whoever many years!

'Great, but why can't I download it?'
The trouble is, the total archive is close to 4GB, which is tough to host (and upload, for that matter). Plus, I'm still hunting for content after about 3 months (yes, that's what I've been doing ). Instead, I'm asking everyone that can to email me their BK stuffs so I can add them, and hopefully have a full release before Valentines Day. To email your things, attach your file (or a text file containing a link) to upload.BKArchi.frbo5okuqm@u.box.com. When emailing things, I won't get a message in the normal email. To send a message along with you file, I would advise you to make a .zip archive and put your message as a .txt file inside, along with whatever you are attempting to send...

Merry Christmas, and please help me with the BKArchive!

Here's a general idea of what's inside:

UPDATED!!
Everything in bold has grown!

Number of Video Game Audio Files (soundtrack + sfx): 3,470
Number of Fan Songs: 431
Number of Fan Games: 22 (including all demos)
Number of Piano Sheet musics: 83
Number of Spritesheets: 143
Number of Fan Images: 232
Number of Images in the Texture Packs: 8,957
Number of Game Manuals: 7
Number of Concept Art images: 140
Number of Official Artwork: 320
Number of Videos (both fan and not): 16
Number of ROMs: 24
Number of Fan Documents (theories, fanfics, etc.): 61

EDIT: I've attached the general FAQ that will be included with the BKArchive. Look there before posting and see if your question can be answered there.

EDIT EDIT: The above mentioned FAQ was...waaaaaay outdated, so it's been removed. That method of help was changed to a simple jumpstart Readme.txt. However, please ask for help here if you still need it!

This is really cool! I'll see if I can find something particular between my files, but I think it's nothing you already haven't.

I do?
While I've got a lot of things (almost 4GB worth of stuff), and this was the first place I've poured through. In fact, this is the most combed through place I have done. Do you remember Banjo-PCie? How about BKPC or BKPC2? I gots them all!

Also, if you, or anybody else here on The RWP would mind getting me this, I would be appreciative. I can't seem to download it!

Walecs, if you have any fanfics, send those first. I most likely have your pictures (although send those too), but I have very few fanfics...

But seriously, anything really BK related can go in the BKArchive. I've attached the general FAQ in the first post (big 'ole text file). Most of the information in it isn't really relevant because you don't have the archive, but it some useful info on submitting new files.

Hello again to everybody here at The RWP.

I've updated the first title to advertise the need for beta testers.
Great, you say, I'd love to beta test!
Before I'll allow you to, please read the following information, for warnings, and to see if you qualify.

1. I'd appreciate some feedback. If you're usually not very active, or don't think you can actually "test" the archive, don't bother.

2. If you have feedback, make it worth making you a beta tester. I know this is just a silly little Banjo related project, and I will come out very soon, but I'd like some decent feedback. I don't want Great, no problems. Can I re-upload this?. Something constructive.

3. Please don't repost the things here. You are free to do so when it release, so long as you include an attribution along side it.

If you're interested, submit a .txt file to the previously mentioned email, PM me, or post below.

UPDATE: The beta period is now closed (as if anyone signed up ). I did get some buddies to test it instead. As always, please submit your content! Anything submitted on or after Feb. 7 will not be added into the BKArchive. However, considering that I have gotten little to no content, I'll still probably put it in for the initial release.

Ooh, fan songs go in this too? I've made several Banjo-Kazooie remixes over the past couple of years. Though big chance they're already among the ones you have.

I don't have your stuff yet.
Fact is, I haven't even listened to any of it. I decided early on to do my best not rip things from Youtube (not to say I haven't ).

Do send them.
And anything BK-related as well.
