DAModder Beta 2.0 Released

December 9, 2009 7 comments

DAModder has been released into the wilds — the Korcari Wilds of course.

Closed beta testing has finished, and the core features of the application are pretty darned solid. As a result, DAModder has been officially released into the public. As with many software packages these days, DAModder is released in both a Stable and a Beta version. The beta version will see new features and changes first, and those features will slowly migrate to the stable version as they are tested. It is up to you to decide which version you want to use.

The official DAModder page here on Beyond Ferelden has been updated.

DAModder Open Beta

December 8, 2009 3 comments

I am happy to announce that DAModder, which has been in development for about 2 weeks and in a closed beta testing, is now officially moving into an Open beta phase. That means anyone who wants to can now download the application and use it, and hopefully help report any issues you find.

While it is very important to be aware that DAModder is not finished, I can say that it is rather solid in its current version. Installation and Uninstallation of most all mod packages is very easy to use.

To get started, please go to this link:

You can also join us on the DAModder discussion forum:

The bug tracker is located here:
http://damodder.lighthouseapp.com/projects/42256-damodder/overview

So come on over, grab the latest beta (which at the time of this writing is Beta 1.9.5) and join in the fun! I think you will find DAModder to be a nice easy to use mod manager that is growing very fast, with lots of new features to come.

Introducing DAModder – A Replacement for DAUpdater

November 30, 2009 3 comments

DAModder is designed as a full replacement for Bioware’s “DAUpdater” program. DAUpdater is designed for players to easily install Bioware’s DLC content, and is available to be used to install 3rd party modules as well. However, while DAUpdater is a nice little utility, it doesn’t work well enough as a full mod installer. DAUpdater’s main flaw is that it does not have the ability to un-install mods. In addition, as modders have become more experienced and mods have gotten more complex, several additional issues have surfaced. Some mods need to install files into the games main “core” override, yet DAUpdater can’t do this. Also some mods are now actually configurable by the player, but this currently requires hand editing of an INI file.

DAModder was designed to address all these issues in one easy to use, solid installer, designed for both players and builders.
