As everyone knows, DOSBox takes the way of text-based configuration with lots of parameters, so that is absolutely not an easy thing to create the appropriate configuration for a DOS game for ordinary users. As as result, some graphical environment (AKA: frontend, GUI) tools were specially designed to complete this task, and D-Fend was once one of the outstanding graphical front ends.

D-Fend Reloaded (full name: DosBox Frontend Reloaded) is a very powerful free and open-source GUI frontend for DosBox, as a successor (clone + enhancement) of the discontinued D-Fend (free but closed-source). What this popular D-Fend Reloaded from Germany does is to make the DosBox become easier to use and more powerful.

In conclusion, we can regard D-Fend Reloaded as D-Fend’s regroupment with lots of optimization and enhancement. It has gradually become richer on function and transcended the D-Fend after almost three years time of development. Its more detailed features list is here, as for key features, as follows.

// Key Features //

  • Manage DosBox profiles with user-friendly wizard
  • Classified management of DOS games – each game has its own profile
  • Use keyboard shortcuts to add screenshot, audio and other additional information for games
  • Create desktop shortcut to double-click the icon to start game directly
  • Package Dosbox, game and profile together into an installer to share with friends
  • Create DOS games as an image file for storage, share
  • Game profiles for different users can be saved any directory without interference with each other
  • Support ScummVM (another DOS game emulator)
