It's SHOWTIME!

I was collecting as many DOS games as possible.

It was originally intended to work with any d-fend and dosbox configuration.
But it turned out, that there are a bunch of games that requires different versions of dosbox...so they are included too...

Usage:
Extract the included d-fend to any directory, then run it with the blue iconed d-fend.exe .
In the D-Fend GUI choose File--Import--Import archive file...
Then select the games you want to add to the GUI.

You may mass import games only with manual operation:

CLOSE D-FEND!!!
----------------
then use total commander:
- Collect the games to a folder(or use all games)
- Select all zip files
- Select file--extract
- Extract all the zips into Dfend main directory(that must be on the opposite panel in total commander).
- Select yes to all to overwrite the InstallReadme.txt file from each zip file...
- Then go to the main directory
- Select all the conf files (alt and + or just press + and set *.conf) and DELETE them, they are only for manual use of dosbox...
- Select all the prof files (alt and + or just press + and set *.prof) and MOVE all selected files to the Confs folder.

Run D-fend and see if it loads the prof's database.

Then select a game and double click on it to run.

Enjoy.

I made this database between 2016. october 10 to 2019. november 13, as of today.

It contains 8219 zip files, all files are different games.

If you import so much games(3000+) dfend gets slow(10-15 seconds /click) but works.


Have fun!

It's just for fun!

Really!

All games imported needs 320 GB disk space!

Ok. Please give me feedback if it works, or not.
But as I tested randomly 5 games it worked as it should. :)
