To summarize that article:

A website, GameFront, will soon disappear. GameFront has files on it.
Another website, ModDB, wants people to submit interesting files from GameFront.

So, if you see any interesting PoP files on GameFront, you can submit those to ModDB.
Below are links to PoP related files on GameFront.

Miscellaneous/mixed content:

I can't seem to download anything from that site.
When it would get to the actual file, Firefox says "file not found" which is actually a HTTP 403 error.

Might be related to their list of all of the countries that can download:
No Hungary, but no Poland, Romania, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Italy, France, Russia, China, Japan or Korea either.
(But the first result here is a Polish patch...)
Meanwhile, they allow Antarctica, Bouvet Island (uninhabited), Syria, Iraq, Libya (these three are usually prohibited from US software).
What is their logic?

And they say: "If you’re not in one of the below territories then, unfortunately, you will be unable to download files from our site"
They say "unfortunately", as if it was not their fault...

Do they at least have anything related to PoP1/2?
"Prince of Persia 2" seems to mean "Warrior Within" for them by the way...

Now it redirects to The Escapist.
The Web Archive seems to have the files, though: http://www.moddb.com/groups/moddb/news/ ... ds#5888699
