A launcher program written in Java Swing that hopes to automate the day-to-day maintenance of a DF install.

Features include...
  • Automatic installation and updating to new versions of DF
  • Change common options, TrueType font, tileset and colour scheme easily
  • Read the latest DF devlog before you play
  • Apply several mods at runtime and check their rough compatibility

This version requires Java 1.6 (runtime) on your computer.

Hope you find it easy to use. Any questions, bug reports or feedback is welcome... mosey on to the thread.

Seems to be working with DF2014 fine, upgraded from DF2012 OK and from 40.01 to 40.02 without trouble.
If you're running Windows 8.1 remember you'll need to disable the DPI scaling on "Dwarf Fortress.exe" manually!

A simple, straightforward launcher with some very convenient features.
  • Can toggle simple INI options as well as aquifers. (+1)
  • Tabs to change the tileset and color scheme with live previews. (+2 unique!)
  • Slower startup than other launchers. (-1)
  • Requires DF to be in a subfolder of the launcher. (-0.5)

Overall: 4.5 out of 5.
