This topic is created for new members having inquiries or questions about their pending or denied FTP applications. As new members may not be able to PM me directly this is the thread to ask questions in.

To simply things here are some links to the guides you must have read, understood and followed before asking any questions:


A quick list of what we don't want uploaded:

  • Abandonware console games
  • Magazine discs or floppies (Hallfiry may be interested in these, check out this thread)
  • Open source software (except for original Linux distribution media)
  • Any custom made or modified software
  • Any custom made or modified OS image/disc
  • Any custom made tool or utility
  • Any shareware or freeware software
  • OEM recovery discs

This list is not a complete list and may be revised at any time. If you got any questions PM me or make an offer in the Download Requests/Offers forum.

Generally we're only interested in original retail software and official betas and abandonware.
--

These guides and guidelines will be improved upon over time, so be sure to keep yourself updated. Any posts not relevant to this topic will be deleted without any notice, stay on topic.

I have a beta file that is a VHD as it is an internal windows 10 mobile RS1 Build - IT runs in Hyper-V as it is an emulator - it didnt contain a emulator installer (it had an xde installer but it only installed XDE and no flash.vhd) The flash.vhd you have to save somewhere and then create a vm and run the vm)

Well, so much for this from August, when a friend of mine PM'd you about this. Will that one PC game and the steam game Beta that I had will get accepted?

I still have the uploads and I will keep them until we decide to keep these one day. But there are other groups out there dedicated to collecting and preserving console games so I will keep these off the FTP for now as I don't have the space nor time to test every console game.

Last time I posted a topic at "general discussion" about not getting FTP access after uploading a beta.Mrpijey replied me.But later the topic disappeared.It seems that it's deleted for not posting at a correct forum,so I come here to ask about this.
Mrpijey told me that I should apply for FTP access,instead of simply uploading a beta.But I don't know what a proper application is like.Is it more than what is said at the FTP Server page?I just uploaded a beta according to that.
The zipped file I prepared to upload included a ".iso" system mirror image file,a ".txt" introduction file,several ".png" screen shots and so on.Before uploading the zipped file,I made a new folder named with my ID on the FTP.Then I uploaded the zipped file.
Is this process incorrect or incomplete?Or the process is OK but my beta was rejected?
Moreover,I still haven't got any rejection PMs.But I haven't got FTP access either.

First off, we got a topic for FTP application inquiries, I've merged your post with it. Direct all your FTP application questions to this topic, or PM me directly if you can.

Second off, you never applied for FTP access. On the contribution page there's a huge link where you apply for FTP access. And you find the contribution page link on every major forum section that requires you to be a FTP member, you can't miss it.

https://www.betaarchive.com/contributions.php

Third off, your upload was probably rejected because it didn't fulfill the contribution requirements, and since there was no FTP application I didn't reply to you about it. I don't reply to every FTP upload, especially if they are of low value or uploaded in such a bad state that it's clear to me that the uploader didn't read any of the dumping, scanning or uploading guides (all of which are available in the tutorial sections as well as in my signature).

You may of course try again to upload something to the FTP and apply for access, but make sure you read and understood the guides as you will make it far easier for both of us not having to re-upload the same thing 19 times because you neglected to follow the guidelines properly.

Oh,I'm terribly sorry that I didn't notice the link was a link and thought the system would automatically send an application.I have sent an applicaton just now.Do I have to re-upload the beta?

Yes, reupload it and if it gets rejected or if you need to make any changes you will get PMed.

I uploaded the necessary files, but I have not received any response yet.
It took quite a long time
I can not confirm that I have succeeded or failed.
FTP Manager response is required.

I have already replied to you in multiple PMs what is missing in your scans. I can't keep up this anymore as you have several times uploaded everything and anything except the scan I asked for. I can't help you unless you upload what's needed to complete the release.

So I uploaded the necessary files to bmp.rar last week. Only the scanned image files you requested (Scanned the back cover except plastic)
Two bmp files
The front and rear of the back cover
Did you check?

And
now my file submission has been blocked permanently?

If possible,
Is it possible to try again with the software I tried last time (starting with E)?

I said back cover WITHOUT the plastic cover. I said this three times. Three times you re-uploaded back scans with the plastic cover. I have every scan you uploaded and I still don't see any back cover scans without the plastic covers.

I simply grew tired of repeating myself over and over again. I spent more time with your submission than any other already. If you want to upload the proper back cover scans then do so and I will look into completing the upload, but do it right this time.

PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BEFORE POSTING. I'm really getting tired of those type of questions we have very easy-understandable tutorial.
Read this https://www.betaarchive.com/contributions.php and the this https://www.betaarchive.com/ssl.php
Saying "I tried but my client failed" is like "I tried to start my car but the engine remained quiet. What should I do?" There could be hundreds of reasons why it failed.

Hi mrpijey,

i got your PM

>Thanks for your uploads, but as I stated in the previous PM I need rescan on all the discs and covers, not just one.
basically, i plan to upload 3 software suite before, this one is used for approve testing and it contains only 1 discs

>I also still need the dump logs for the discs, just as stated in the dumping guide.
i think i included the dump log in .rar

Yes, for that title. What about the other two titles you sent up?

And I still need better scans for the other titles as well.
