The CSUAC is back!

For those who don't know what the CSUAC is, it's a massive collection of top-down art collected from the Dundjinni User Forums. It's pre-sorted into categories for you, and the collection is the single greatest BRPG-compatible art resource you can get in just a few downloads.

The CSUAC files have been unavailable for months due to the GM's Parlor site moving to a new server, but the files are finally available again. I highly suggest you snag these archives if you haven't already.

Cecil Solomon, of the GM Syndicate website (http://www.gamemastersyndicate.com/), is the person responsible for creating the CSUAC. He also runs the GM's Parlor website (http://www.gmsparlor.com/).

Sigh. The GM's Parlor is down again, and thus, so are the CSUAC archives. :(

The GM Syndicate site is down, too, and I believe it is run off the same server. I hope they can get all this squared away soon.

Sorry to say, the GM Syndicate site has shut down forever. :(

Does anyone have a copy of the image database? I sure would love to start off with more than what I've got.

Thanks!

Here's a link to the CSUAC archives' new home:
The GM's Apprentice

Edit: I believe BRPG users would be best served by downloading the DJ-compatible baseline archives, rather than the FM8 or CC3 archives. Someone who's familiar with all the formats can correct me if I'm wrong.

Unfortunately "404 - Article #47 not found" is the error I get when I try to hit the link you provided.

Hmm, I guess accessing that page is limited to people who have registered and logged in. Go here instead and sign up.

After registering on their site, the original link works great. Thanks again!

Greetings, new member here!

Can anybody tell me why I'm unable to register at the GMs Apprentice site? I came to that link in search of CSUAC downloads and they prompted me to register, but somehow it doesn't work, neither with Firefox nor IE Explorer.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome, Sir Clarence.

Did you never get a registration confirmation email? Sometimes people don't get them because of spam filters on their end.

Or perhaps there's a manual approval process to prevent spambot registrations, in which case you may have to wait until Cecil approves & activates your account.

The problem is that the site doesn't seem to function properly. Hitting the registration button after filling out the form doesn't work. Nothing at all happens. As I said, I tried this with different browsers and even turned off my firewall, but to no avail. I was also looking for some link to contact the site owners directly but couldn't find anything.

I've un-stickied this thread, since the CSUAC files are no longer available for download.

Well, waddayaknow? The CSUAC is back, yet again! :D

The various baseline files are available for download from here.
It appears that Elric, the owner of the site, has received permission from Cecil to host the files on his site.

I have "re-stickied" this thread.

Is there another mirror of these files anywhere?

I've downloaded the whole bunch and found a problem with all of the archives, potentially corrupt. When I try to unzip them, I get "Error 0x80004005 unspecified error", using the built in decompression from Windows 7.

Can anyone else verify this problem, or is it just me? (i.e. a problem with my computer).

If you downloaded the files from the site I linked to in my prior post, I suggest you contact Elric and see if he's heard of other users having this problem.

This link, Feb 22, 2012, leads to a page asking 'is this your domain ?'. Looks like they are having problems.

Welcome, Geroblue.

The CSUAC files can now be found here.
