D-Fend Reloaded - DOSBOX Frontend

#1 Post by abc » Wed Aug 29, 2012 9:41 am

D-Fend Reloaded is a graphical environment for DOSBox. DOSBox emulates a complete computer including the DOS commandline and allows to run nearly all old DOS based games on modern hardware with any of the newer Windows versions.

With DOSBox there is no need to worry about memory managers or free conventional RAM, but the setup of DOSBox is still a bit complicated. The configuration of DOSBox via textbased setup files might be difficult for beginners. D-Fend Reloaded may help and create these files for you. Additionally the D-Fend Reloaded installation package contains DOSBox (including all lanuage files currently available), so there is only one installation to be run and no need to link D-Fend Reloaded with DOSBox manually.

You can also create portable installations by selecting "Custom installation" and then "Portable mode" in the installer.

Thanks abc ... looks great -- will hopefully test this out soon. I've posted about D-Fend, but for this version:
The development objective for D-Fend Reloaded was (besides 100% D-Fend compability) to make the program operation more simple with respect to DOSBox beginners. Simultaneously more features for administration and configuration became available.


For reference, other front-ends mentioned on forums before:

DosShell (still in development)
