Hey guys, I'm the creator of . I know F95 Zone has been using the site for a while now, and I hope that you guys have had good experiences.

Nopy was created to provide fast and dependable downloads, with no ads and no logs. But all sites have their kinks, so thats why I'm finally creating a thread on here, to ask if there is any issues that you have faced while using it. Broken downloads, slow speeds, possible improvements, etc? Feel free to discuss (...or praise...) the site here.

Also, unfortunately we'll be offline for the next day or 2 whilst I perform some backend upgrades, including doubling the bandwidth capacity, and extra storage for the file servers. The changes are now complete :)

If you feel like donating, you can do that here: <3

I haven't used the site, but I've been considering writing an "update" application which could update Twine games and other games by only pulling down the files that need to be updated, rather than pulling down everything in a single ZIP/RAR/7Z file, including many files you already have. I'm hoping to simplify game updating and also save bandwidth in the process. I've been trying to figure out what the best site to do this through would be.

Does nopy.to have a way to set up directories and sub-directories of files, so that individual files could be (publicly) downloaded by an application? If so, what are the download limitations?

I am afraid that you will only hear praise from me! Most people here probably care more about the games than the servers they get the game files from, but whenever nopy is an option it is the option I choose. It simply beats the competion by a mile. I can only recommend that we chip in to show our appreciation and thanks!

Glad to hear you guys find the service useful :)

Unfortunately not, I don't think nopy would be a good fit for that use case. It sounds like something custom would be a better fit, perhaps with object storage backend with either a reverse proxy or cloudflare in front? Would give you a lot more control over the system and customise it to suit your needs.

is back online after the maintenance window, with 5 new servers as well as a brand new back end and caching structure to better deal with traffic bursts.

I'm still testing the caching margins, so consider it alpha-ish for the time being, but you'll hopefully see more reliable speeds with very popular files :D

I think that's a joke, at least I hope so :p

Accounts are invite only, reserved for creators and platforms. Nopy is still in alpha with a limited amount of bandwidth available, so access is carefully restricted I'm afraid. I don't want to open up the flood gates, start having performance issues and then have a degraded service for everyone.

Looking at the list, there are a lot of other file hosts which are allowed, although maybe none quite as good as nopy ;)

How large is the file? If you don't mind splitting the archive into smaller parts you'll have a much wider selection of filehosts.

Better than Mega 2/5GB soft and hard limit, speed is almost always near max. Only problem is there's not always a nopy mirror. Void and nopy are my favourites for the big stuff currently, don't have to go run a torrent on my 24/7 machine.

Ouch, unfortunately only premium mega users would be able to download the 8GB parts. You're probably better off splitting it across 2 Google Drive accounts.
