Purpose: This is a skinnable front end: you can use this simply to run D-mods with, but you can also make a skin for the front end. This is the successor of Customfe-100. Some skins included in this file are the same as the skins in Customfe-100. You can not use the skins made for Customfe-100 in this front end.

Installation: You have to run the programme and it then will unzip itself.

Use: The front end is very simple in use; there are play, edit and quit buttons, but that is default. You can change that if you want to by adjusting or making a skin.

Good: The tutorial gives some examples, which is an improvement over the tutorial used in Customfe-100. There are lots of .bmp files included to make it easier to make a new skin.

Not so good: The tutorial lacks the in-depth of the tutorial of Customfe-100. I tried to make a skin using this tutorial, but I did not even understand how to do it. The tutorial of Customfe-100 is more clear, although that one needs studying too if you are not familiar with programming.

Overall: A nice file, but if you want to learn to make a new skin, Customfe-100 would be a better (albeit not perfect) choice.

Remark: This front end is as easily installed as Customfe-100, but since the tutorial on how to make skins is not that good as the one in Customfe-100, this file is rated a bit lower.

Fit for: If you want an easy to install front end this is a good choice. If you want to make a new skin, you had better try Customfe-100.

I loved this program, although it is the (Almost) unskinable skinable frount end it has great features, I know how people say its bad not to be able to skin, but, lets face it a program like this cant be critisised for its lack of skinning, as long as it has a stable base and a strong lot of features,

It runs any number of dmods, as you would know I have every dmod on this site and it still runs perfectly, All I can say is, I cant wait for the next one

I think this file is very useful because:
- When you just want to click and play, it's excellent
- You can adjust it to your own flavour (the skins)
- you can see the dmod info
- you can edit a dmod with dinkedit just by pushing the edit button
- it's (like redink says) the best one available.
But if you want more, you'd better make your own frontend.

The best frontend available. It supports a fun and easy skinning method, and when combined with the Skin Pack, it is the best looking frontend as well. However, it is slightly limited... you can't disable sound, put it in debug mode, and so on. But it covers all the basics (Play, Edit, and Quit) and makes every other Dink Frontend look like child's play.
