New freedink releases
     posted by Beuc, Sun Nov 14 11:26:45 2010 - 0 replies

The GNU FreeDink game engine is updated to v1.08.20101114: this fixes a couple crashes in recent D-Mods, and adds the new Turbo mode that triples the game speed when pressing Tab (e.g. to speed up lengthy cut-scenes).

DFArc v3.8.1 is a stable-branch update that mainly adds a new Dutch translation that I had forgotten to include in v3.8.

Cheers!
