DxWnd lets you run many applications that default to fullscreen in a window, ideal for games. The program is a Win32 "hooker" program that intercepts and alters the behavior of window messages and APIs. It picks up events and injects code into the configured tasks to run fullscreen programs in a windowed environment while maintaining expected behavior.

Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

Great tool! Using it now I can play my favourite DOS game BlockOut by California Dreams on my Widnows 8 system.

Game Booster v1.5.0.96

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

Game Booster helps optimize your PC for smoother, more responsive game-play in games that use many system resources. The program defragments game directories, temporarily shuts down background processes, cleans RAM, and intensifies processor performance. That means you can keep all the features of operating systems ready for when you need them, but turn them off when you are ready to get down to serious gaming.

Beware of these ( chinese! ) products. They coorrupt the OS.

I have been using IOBits Smart Defrag 2 for a while now and can safely say it has not corrupted my OS nor did Rising Anti Virus which is another Chinese product I tested a few years ago.

RPGui v1.0.1

webfork on 5 Sep 2016

RPGui is a tool for pen-and-paper RPG's that allows gaming sessions to be conducted over the internet, with the DM/GM serving as host and players joining. The interface is simple and gets the job done, allowing the DM/GM to perform "hidden" dice rolls, conduct narratives and even speak through NPC's without clutter and confusion to the players. Also included is support for custom maps and tokens.

Note: The application website is offline, so I have made the copy supplied by Firewrath available for direct download.

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application Folder
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch RPGui.exe.

The link above that X posted, actually has nothing to do with the RPGui program. (Sorry X,)

And for anyone interested in this, if you have .Net 3.5 installed on your PC, I recommend getting TTopRPG instead, the forum topic for it is here:
