Version 10004 Released!

1 post in this topic

Dimmdrive has been updated to Version 10004!  This update is a massive update to Dimmdrive which includes features that a lot of people have been excited for.

 

  • Dimmdrive can now be used with games which have a size larger than your RAM / Dimmdrive size!   This feature allows you to intelligently select the particular files you want to go fast and skip out non-essential files.  For example, you can take a 25GB World of Warcraft installation and trim it down to 3GB size in Dimmdrive.  See here for more information:   http://dimmdrive.com/instructions/game-wrench-less-ram-or-more-ram/
  • Dimmdrive's core has been completely rebuilt.  All Ramdisk information is now intelligently created and managed using our custom symlink engine.  This means Steam, Origin, Game Launchers, everything, will passively work by default
  • Dimmdrive's core now automatically synchronizes all managed symlinks with actual data on your hard drive.  This means NO data is lost when you shut down your PC, reboot, etc.
  • You can now re-select an EXE in Steam
  • You can now bind an EXE to run in the "Other Programs" area when using a folder
  • Fixed a crash bug due to a Microsoft issue causing WMI pointers to get out-of-sync
  • General speed enhancements

 

Please do the following when updating:

  1. Go into your Add / Remove inside windows, and uninstall Dimmdrive.
  2. SUPER IMPORTANT!   Delete your Dimmdrive folder config/xml/gamexml (either in the Dimmdrive install directory, or look in your Localstore  (Example:   "C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)"    ).  NOTE:   You can use the Support Tool to delete your old config files.  See here!
  3. Reboot
  4. Download the latest Dimmdrive from here and install it
  5. Reboot
  6. Enjoy!

NOTE:   To delete your old Dimmdrive config, use the support tool.

 

Forthcoming Updates:

 

The next update will include the following:

  1. The ability to launch a Steam game inside Dimmdrive proxied directly through Steam (versus running the Dimmdrive'd .exe)
  2. Better detection of Steam Games
  3. Any bug fixes that need to go in
