This is a front end to play any D-mod.

It seems an awful lot of work to just get a front end up and running: you have to unzip the file and then shift-click a dmod.diz of any D-mod, in order to get the 'open with...' option. Then you have to select 'other', and find and select PlayThis.exe. The front end however, did not work. I got an error indicating that I needed visual basic runtime files, so I had to download those from the Microsoft site. And then the file still would not run. At that time I just could not be bothered to try again or to try find out what was wrong.

There are front ends available that you can easily install with only one click and then the work is done and you can play your D-mod. This file is not exactly user friendly.

I am willing to believe that this is a good front end since it won both a DOTM and DOTY, and therefore the score is a bit higher, but this one does not work for me.
