Hello everyone.

Good news, we managed to upload all the old data we found, and I wrote a hacky script to turn the old NeHe ASP pages into html, and make all links point to the new file locations... Check out the "Legacy Articles" on the right hand side of http://nehe.gamedev.net/ !


This contains only the contests for now, NeHe's old downloads and projects have a different format so I'll write a script for those as well in the next days.

The text formatting might look weird at places and not all links will work (e.g. not everyone uploaded their source code), but as I said, this was just a hacky script biggrin.png


Have fun with the contest entries! Although I guess nowadays you should not code either C++ nor OpenGL in the way these guys did around 10 years ago smile.png

Hi guys,

sorry it took so long to get back to you.


This isn't an official response, but I suspect that the people who run NeHe probably just don't have those files anymore -- that contest was well over a decade ago, and even the page you're trying to access them from is archived on someone else's website rather than hosted on the actual NeHe site.

this is mostly correct. We do still have the files somewhere on a backup disk, but they are no longer hosted on nehe.gamedev.net . Which explains why this cached website you're referring to has broken links.

We're currently looking for the old contest entries and projects, and will upload them again so you can access them. We'll keep you updated!

Hi there,

sorry your request kept unanswered this long. Haven't checked the forums in a while unsure.png ...

It could very well be that I still have your entry somewhere in a FTP backup. I'll have a look when I get back home!
