DISE is now open source!

DISE has been a project most dear to me ever since it was born in year 2011. That still applies today even though I haven't given it much love over the recent years.

DISE has always been mostly a one-man project that took a lot of effort which has not given me a whole lot in return. Did you know that I have kept giving free support since the first release?

The project was neglected for several years in a somewhat incomplete state, yet it was impossible to abandon it. I debated with myself whether I should open-source the project and risk people stealing my hard work and taking credit for it. It was considered many times but protecting my child always weighed more.

By now DISE has a community and a lot of people know who made DISE. Even if someone tries to steal my work now, you guys know.

Opening up a project after almost 9 years is not an easy task. There are ugly things in the code that should have been done better. I would rather that you didn't see those things. Things will be rough in the beginning but we have to start somewhere and improve from there.

To start with, I have set up build automation, reformatted the code, removed secret files from the code base and started a new change history for the code. I wanted to preserve the history but I needed to make sure that there were no more sensitive files in the code base accidentally being made public.

If you are excited about DISE being open-source, why not go ahead and check it out on GitHub? You can look me up on DISE's Discord server if you have any questions, or send me a good old e-mail. :)

DISE v0.2 is available on Discord

TL; DR: Experimental builds of DISE are available in the #edge channel on the DISE Discord server.

In case you did not know, the project was resurrected last year, and many changes have been made in DISE. Major changes mean that there is a high risk of introducing new bugs, and for that reason it has needed a long round of testing to fix major problems.

The next version is not yet ready for an official release, but thanks to a lot of people who already helped with testing DISE, it should be stable enough for general use. Your help with testing both existing and new features will also be much appreciated!

Here are perhaps the top two changes in DISE:
  • Support for Dead Island (Riptide) Definitive Edition for PC and PS4*.
  • The premium features are now completely free. Donations are still appreciated but everyone gets all of the features DISE has to offer.
* PS4 support relies on third party software like Save Wizard for save decryption/encryption. At this time, SW supports Dead Island Definitive Edition but not Riptide.

The new Discord server for DISE has become a small community for discussing DISE, the games, and for getting the latest experimental builds of DISE. I am also available there for support.

I hope to see you there!
