    I was going to ask if you can use wayback machine and get flash player to work (before it was shutdown on January 12, 2021) and it can be possible to listen to some of the loops and sound effects? That would be a lot of tweaking though.

    I’m glad that there is an archive.org repository of loops from Flashkit, but it doesn’t have everything.

    I was hoping to download ambient soundscape loops; the aforementioned repository doesn’t have any of them!

    Condolences, sympathies, and hugs will not cut it.

    I am not happy that Flashkit, a repository of nostalgic sounds from the early 2000s, is lost! The archive.org page is nice, but it doesn’t have everything!

    Where’s the owner of the site when we need them?

    The OLD Missing files - WILL NOT BE COMING BACK. They are lost and gone forever.

    Hope this helps

    I've managed to archive 22 of the ambient/soundscape loops! They're available here: https://archive.org/download/flashki.../moar/Ambient/
    It's not much, but it's better than nothing!

    All the original uploaders of the sounds and music should be alerted of the data loss, if they can still be contacted and at least if they don't have their own websites where they uploaded them as well that are on the wayback machine. Most of the pages themselves are on the wayback machine, but not the MP3s or WAVs themselves. I made a Google doc to name the resources that aren't archived anywhere or embedded in games and other content with searchable credits: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing. I'm also encouraging everyone to send their downloads and offline archives to the wayback machine or the owner of kitloops.

    One that I'm looking at in particular is Icebergslim. It's a sensory overload to go through all the entries in the category pages instead of searching by submission pages, so it's better to write a script that prints out every name and artist in each search or category page. The artist's only publicly available form of contact is ice8ergslm@aol.com, and it's unlikely that AOL emails work anymore. I listed every song from that artist in the doc that have submission pages in the wayback machine, but I don't know if that's all the songs made by that artist. I'm also messaging and encouraging the admins of each Flash game provider like Armor Games and Newgrounds to start being diligent about whether assets in old Flash content has credits or not and being able to search for submissions of any media by credits. It could start with something simple like making a high-priority announcement alerting of the biggest loss in early web content history and an encouragement to start working on doing what they can to upload all the lost content to archivists like Kitloops. There's an app called FFdec (Free Flash Decompiler), which includes all the metadata of the content being extracted whenever they have any, but it's likely for such content to not have any embedded in the SWFs, especially Ball Revamped games.

    So far, kitloops started with all the sound loops from mrw.it, batch-downloaded using a Python script

    Also, what exactly happened that prevented the hosting providers from transferring the user-submitted content? Some people worded it more like they forgot or made an oversight, which could easily result in ableistic outrage comments about the employees that they're scapegoating, given the extreme importance in the historic aspects of the lost data.

    This site is one of 11 sites.....It used to be one of 22 sites... The whole group has been SOLD about six times since 1999 when I first started posting...

    The last time they were sold was about three years ago.... and no one involved had any idea that the files should have been included and transferred. Most of the other sales - everything including the servers etc went to the new owner but not this last time... All efforts to get the files from the old owner failed.

    Owner of KitLoops speaking! Honoured to see my website getting so much attention, and I apologize to the site owner for not asking permission before nabbing all the loops. But clearly it's been of a lot of use!

    Regarding the Icebergslim loops, I searched through the entire archive and it appears none of them have been saved (yet). Remember, KitLoops doesn't just cover the stuff from mrw.it, but also every single loop on Archive.org, and my personal collection of course. That being said, if there are loops that aren't in the archive yet, I'd love to add them, so don't hesitate to get in contact. The site exists purely to keep an archive of as many lost FlashKit loops as possible, and I have made archives of the archive, so I can guarantee that absolutely nothing will be lost this time. I'm entirely dedicated to this, so any little bit helps.

    ...how many times did I say archive?
