  1. Just grabbed the beta after a while of not using dimmdrive just because of how difficult it was to manage a large list of Steam games with the old version. New UI is a substantial improvement! I do have two feature requests though. 1) A resizable window. I have a lot more vertical space on my screen than Dimmdrive is using, I'd like to see more of the list at once. 2) An option to either remove the game image and/or replace it with something smaller like Steam's icon list view, for a more compact view. On the surface it doesn't seem like these are big asks, and I think that either or both of these would be substantial "quality of use" improvements for people with large libraries. edit: After some further use, I have noticed that manually adding a game that does not keep its .exe in the topmost folder in it's file structure is a little awkward. For games that use CryEngine the binaries are kept in a GameName\Bin folder, with most of the data files in GameName\Data, so adding the .exe to Dimmdrive ignores the data folders. You can manually add the topmost folder of course, but I can see some people getting tripped up by this. Not sure if there's a simple fix for this though.
  2. If it looks anything at all like that it would be a phenomenal improvement. Doubly so if the window can be resized for a larger view, unlike the current version. Honestly at the moment I rarely use Dimmdrive just because of the hassle of having to scroll sideways through my hundreds-large library every time I want to change the loaded game(s). A change like this would probably promote it to everyday usage. Semi-related: Will there be any sort of caching of the library contents? Often the rescan of the library when Dimmdrive is initially opened takes several times longer than just waiting for whatever game I wanted to play to load normally off the HDD would've.
  3. Just wanted to throw in my own two cents to say that I am highly anticipating the new GUI. Any chance of a preview image or better idea of what to expect?

    Sorry, only just saw your response. Yes, almost all of them are in F:\SteamLibrary\.

  6. I'm having this same problem. Happened this weekend after I was done playing Batman: Arkham Origins. In my case though it left the presync folder and symlink behind after the Z: drive was removed. I left it at "preparing to stop dimmdrive" and ate supper. When I came back it was still sitting there, so I killed it and manually deleted the symlink and renamed the presync folder.
  7. If the bugfix was in the 10004 release then it didn't work for me. Just updated and I still only see two Steam games displayed out of hundreds.
  8. This should be fairly straightforward. It would allow people to cram a little bit more into any given RAM disk at the cost of some CPU overhead. Access times might be slightly slower, though still far far better than a physical drive, and the gains can be enough in some cases to recover a respectable amount of space, as shown here: Note the "size on disk" being notably smaller than the "size" of the data.
