Official Website Revived!
« on: September 20, 2014 04:06 AM »
Been working on this today, had a quick idea last night that, since the official FF7 website has been shutdown after 16 years or so (:() I'd use web.archive.org to basically save the website, make adjustments to the HTML and put it up on here and link to it as "Official Website" that way.

Unfortunately the site was coded so badly (ok not THAT bad but you can tell the person who made it was a bit of novice) it's taken me the better part of today to get it all up and running. Right now it's not 100% done but all the pages are there and just need HTML and style adjustments to make it look exactly like it was. Will finish it tomorrow but here's the comparison so far:

http://www.final7fantasy.com/officialwebsites/
http://web.archive.org/web/20090216185255/http://www.square-enix-usa.com/games/ff7/

As you can see I'm trying to make it as 1:1 as possible. Sucks they shut it down after so long at all though.
Main Site Completion List:
Final Fantasy VII - 55%

Last Order - 90%
Crisis Core - 1%
Advent Children - 20%
Dirge of Cerberus - 1%

That's a good idea. You could try to do the same with some of the other official sites (Advent Childrem, Crisis Core) incase they shut down too. Then in a way, you kinda own those sites now :P

The original site is probably from the 90's when even professionals were using what we would call bad code today.

Yeah for it's time it at least works well. I think the site was setup in 1998 around the release of the PC version due to it not having any mention of the PS except a review posted in PSX Magazine. Could be wrong though.
