I am a first-time poster here on Vogons and I loved D-Fend Reloaded. However, with that being said, it does seem like it has passed the end of its life-cycle and it might be time to move on to new pastures. This morning I decided to put my thinking cap on and start recreating this piece of computing history.
Enter D-Fend Renewed
Yes, D-Fend Renewed (thanks for the name by the way) has been born on 4-3-2021 and is ready to live, provided you want it too! What I am doing now is preparing to recreate and fix a lot of the issues in D-Fend Reloaded is a new iteration of the application called D-Fend Renewed, and it needs your support to live. What do I mean by support? Well, simply put, there has to be an interest in the project before I decide to continue it, after all, it doesn't make sense to spend hundreds of man-hours on an application if nobody will use it. So consider this post to be a probe if you will so I can tell if there is still a need in 2021 for this once beautiful piece of software.
- A proper website
- A brand new plugin system
- A more intelligent way of adding new games
- Upload/download installed games right to the cloud
These are just a few of the planned features that I would implement into D-Fend Renewed should the demand be great enough and we decide to create said application and distribute it. If there is not enough interest regarding D-Fend Renewed then it just like D-Fend Reloaded will just be a memory that lives warm in our hearts.
