Please send mail to if you have questions or wish to contribute/package/etc.

When submitting a bug report, please attach a savegame (preferrably zipped) with instructions on how to reproduce the problem. FreeDink save your games as saveX.dat files in the D-Mod folder if writable (e.g. ~/dmods/dmod_name/saveX.dat), or in /home/your_login/.dink/dmod_name/saveX.dat otherwise.

Help out!

We're looking for free sounds and music replacements, check how to help.

We're also looking for translators for the game as well as the DFArc frontend. See how to add your language.
