Groupees recently announced via a Twitter post that due to some disruption with their technical team based in Ukraine they are not currently able to offer bundles.
The same message appears on the main Groupees page as a scrolling text, with the deadline moved to the end of August and a new tweet was posted after the original one, with the deadline extension.
Even though the posts mention the end of August as a deadline, Groupees domain expires on 21 August. The domain has been renewed for 1 more year.

🌟 NEW: 21 AUG: According to an official Groupees tweet, you will have access to your account even after 21 August.


Since it's uncertain if Groupees will still be up after 21 August 2022, it's better to claim all your keys / download all your assets from past purchases beforehand.


Some tools that facilitate the retrieval of all the items in your Groupees account:

GMMan's Groupees Scraper sorts the used/unused keys? or can it download just unused? most of what I have there is used so if it cant sort or download just unused its a bummer :(

Well, if you marked a key as used in Groupees page, output .csv file includes a tag true/false for this option, so you can filter it in Excel after that.

Don't have Excel so is there any other nice programs to handle CSV?

If you have Google docs, you can definitely import CSV files there.

CSV is one of the simplest file types though, so there are tons of programs to handle them. The name of the file type comes directly from what is: comma separated values.

The following, if you copied it into notepad, could be saved as a CSV and then opened in Excel or any other program that handles CSVs:

1, 100, "some text", "something that's not a number, and has a comma in it", 7, -42.1138
2, 15, "some text", "this is a new row", 86, 99

Oh so this is why I've been flooded with trade requests there lately... Thanks for the heads-up

Sad to see another bundle site go, because we need more diversity than the IP Gestapos that HB and Fanatical have turned into. But I can't say I'll really miss them after the fiasco of their last (I think?) multi-bundle subscription and even worse that mystery bundle where they were hinting that it could be Steam games but it ended up containing not a single bloody Steam games and after which I never bought anything from them again.

And as some others mentioned, I really don't get why they didn't send an e-mail... Maybe they need their technical team to use Thunderbird 🀑

A follow-up to my previous comment.

Speeds seem to have improved, I don't know if someone on Groupees end changed something to improve that. If you want to go ahead and try to download everything from your library you can just use these commands (after the process I explained in my other comment):

.\GroupeesDownload.exe generate-links --use-dirs --include-all
.\aria2c -i downloads_list.txt --header "Cookie: _groupees_session=YOUR-LONG-COOKIE-STRING" --enable-rpc --rpc-listen-all --rpc-allow-origin-all --log=groupees.log --max-concurrent-downloads=3 --check-integrity=true --remote-time true --file-allocation=prealloc --log-level=notice

When generating the list of downloads, --use-dirs will use a very nice feature of aria2c so every bundle contents is automatically saved on its own folder. Use the option --include-all if you also want to download the MP3 downloads. By default GMMan's Groupees Scraper will only generate links for FLAC files. It might be sufficient since you can always go from FLAC to MP3 (recoding files) but the opposite is impossible, you can't go from a lossy format like MP3 and convert it to a lossless FLAC file. If you don't want the hassle of recoding files if you ever need, or if you think that maybe someone at Groupees forgot to put a song in the FLAC archive but it's on the MP3 version or if you just want to have everything "as-is", then go for it.

aria2c is a very neat tool. It's even better on Linux but that's another story :p I use --log=groupees.log and *--log-level=notice*** so everything is saved into a log file that I can check/parse/use in scripts later. Download errors (and why there was an error) is stored there, too. For old bundles you might encounter a lot of 404 (not found) errors when trying to get the covers of the products (don't worry about those, it's been like that for years). Also, a few (not many, mind you, Groupees did an amazing job at that) games that had DRM downloads are gone, you'll find more 404 errors for those. Any other error code might mean that something went wrong with that particular download (network disconnection, server closed the connection mid-download,...). --log-level=notice** seems to be enough for me, I think default is debug which adds a lot of technical details. You also have other log levels like info, error* (I think this one only logs errors -duh-). Check which one seems to work better for you.

As I said in my other comment, I use --max-concurrent-downloads=3 to limit the number of parallel downloads to 3. Increasing it might not help your speed limit, will definitely put more load on the Groupees server, and also might end in having more incomplete downloads. Anyway, you can play with that number and see what fits best your particular scenario.

I'm not sure if --check-integrity=true does anything since it depends on the server features. Some servers include the checksum of the download in the response header and aria2c will check your downloaded file against that to be sure that it matches and you didn't end up with a corrupted file. As I say, I'm not sure if Groupees servers support that feature but, hey, it doesn't hurt to use it.

--file-allocation=prealloc is a tricky one and depends a lot on which Operating System and Filesystem you're using. RTFM for more info about this and choose accordingly, or just drop this option and let aria2c go to the default and choose it for you.

You can also remove all the --enable-rpc --rpc-listen-all --rpc-allow-origin-all options, I use them to connect aria2c to AriaNG, a nice web frontend GUI where you can watch what is aria2c doing. That frontend is just an html file you drop on your usual browser. Very handy and straightforward.

Once you download anything you might want to check for incomplete downloads. Search for "*.aria2" in the Windows file explorer and delete both that control file (My_Album_FLAC.zip.aria2) and the corresponding incomplete download (My_Album_FLAC.zip). Once you've done that for all files that did not download correctly, run aria2c again but this time add --auto-file-renaming=false:

aria2c -i downloads_list.txt --header "Cookie: _groupees_session=YOUR-LONG-COOKIE-STRING" --enable-rpc --rpc-listen-all --rpc-allow-origin-all --log=groupees3.log --max-concurrent-downloads=15 --check-integrity true --min-split-size=100M --remote-time true --file-allocation=prealloc --log-level=notice --auto-file-renaming=false

This will parse again the list of downloads but will only try to download the missing files.

I have been away these last few days and I haven't had time to check my downloads (5.5TB, 1065 bundles -including duplicates-) but I would like to make a hash file of what I downloaded so people can check their downloads against it to be sure that they have the correct files (or to report discrepancies in hashes, to see who has the good one). I also would like to check the list of failed downloads, due to 404 (not found) errors, but manually, to be sure that they are missing from the Groupees server. List of those coming soon, too.

As usual, if someone needs anything else or wants to ask something, feel free to reply!

Extending the domain doesn't mean much though. They could still shut down the servers.
If they don't extend the domain, someone else can buy it and then they won't be able to keep using it in the future when their business will be back on track.

I think at this point they won't be replacing duplicate keys no more.
At best they'll assist people who need their accounts merged with a new one because they were using 3rd party logins which have stopped working a while ago.

Yup, can't hurt to try but I didn't have high hopes indeed.
And that's also an indication that there is more going on than "we have technical troubles because the technical team is based in Ukraine", since you don't need a technical team to get a new key πŸ‘€

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if they'll close for good.
I'm currently in the process of backing up all my old purchases and needed a break. I know there's a script for that but given I had only 42 bundles purchased I was afraid it might take me longer to get the script working than if I do it manually πŸ˜…

Groupees and GMG always were the wallflowers among Bundle sites...
But I think GMG is doing better at standalone sales... now that Greenlight Bundles have been gone for a while Groupees didn't have anything going for them from what I can tell.

They still are, but they have higher priorities and most of the replacements are duplicates, too, so it's better to contact the game's publisher, if possible.
