So, D-Fend Reloaded isn´t updated any more?

I reinstalled D-Fend Reloaded after many years without using It and I have a few questions, after reading a bit in this thread It seems that the author, Alexander, isn´t here since 2016, is that correct?.

So... I got really annoyed with a bug in D-Fend Reloaded. There was a typo in the procedure that handled how to deal with mounted zip files. One thing led to another and I ended up not only up fixing it, I also updated some components (FastMM4, SevenZipVCL, GifImage) and the project got updated so it compiles with current Delphi versions (I'm using the latest 30 day trial). If anyone wants to fix or add anything this is a good starting point.

The .7z has the updated source, and a precompiled DFend.exe.
Its 101% untested, I just compiled it a few minutes ago, got DosBox running and thats it. I'm pretty sure it has more bugs than features.
I'm not planning to make any updates or taking feature requests, aside from (maybe) fixing bugs related to the update to Delphi 10.4. pls report them here, not by PM.

Hello 001
It is great you took some time to upgrade Dfend code ! Thanks for your effort.
I downloaded your code but unfortunately there is an error in DosBoxUnit.pas when I tried to compile the project.
[dcc32 Error] DosBoxUnit.pas(1577): E2010 Incompatible types: '_PROCESS_INFORMATION' and 'Pointer'
Which Delphi version are you using ? I used the last community version 10.3

I also noticed that some modules have been fixed in your source but not included anymore in Dfend project (e.g. GIFImage.pas). Any reason ?

I am by far not an expert in Delphi but if someone could take this opportunity to jump on 001 work it would be great.

Most desired (IMO) : recover ability to download info/images from Mobygames or similar sites
