Dimmdrive Updated To 2.2.1!

We've been very busy preparing to launch the new artifical intelligence version of Dimmdrive - Coming Soon!

Recent updates:
  • As a result of Steam's recent enhancement to the logic which manages the launching of software in your library, we have been able to enance Dimmdrives integration component which allows Steam to accurately determine your "time played". You'll now notice a different treatment here when switching between games and Dimmdrive. This also mitigates several scenarios which recently caused crashes.
  • We corrected the usb turbo window which had reportedly been failing to open
  • Modified additional branding + messaging components to begin preparing for the upcoming premium package launch.

    Looking back, here's comprehensive list of all the changes since our initial Steam release on January 1st, 2015:

    Full Update Notes:

    • Now available in all Steam languages!
    • Added language selection drop-down
    • Updated images and brand content
    • Vastly improved Windows 10 Threshold 2 support for their November, 2015 update.
    • Increased efficiency in the Dimmdrive ramdrive format process.
    • Modified certain dialog confirmation windows.
    • Added YES/NO confirmation dialog when clicking the "X" to close Dimmdrive, as well as the "Exit Dimmdrive" when the software is minimized.
    • Added YES/NO confirmation dialog when turning Dimmdrive off. This will prevent accidental off situations when you're still in-game.
    • Added enhanced support for Windows 10 - Yay!!
    • Dimmdrive now plays a sound when the game's initial file copy is completed into Dimmdrive. You can configure this sound option, or disable it, in the "Settings" area of Dimmdrive.
    • You can now define Steam Library Locations within Dimmdrive.
    • Faster detection of all your Steam games!
    • Better direct integration with Steam - Simply click your game inside Dimmdrive and it will launch via Steam!
    • Performance tweaks to the "LESS RAM" mode of Dimmdrive. You can now play BIG games with smaller RAM sizes! Example: 30GB game will work with 8GB Dimmdrive.
    • Performance tweaks to our "Real-Time File Sync"! Example: When your game changes, such as saving your game, Dimmdrive will automatically write those changes back to your HD. This means all data is saved regardless if you turn your PC off! No files will ever be lost!
    • USB3 Turbo now allows ANY disk type to be used including USB, HDD, SSDs, etc.
    • You can now search for your Steam games in Dimmdrive and easily make.
    • Your Steam Friends List no longer displays "In-App: Dimmdrive" indefinitely.
    • Dimmdrive now runs faster than ever!
    • Dimmdrive's "Launch on startup" feature now works correctly.
    • Game sizes are now ordered correctly when sorted.

“Very functional and simple software designed with us gamers in mind. Time is money and this software saves me a lot of time setting up a RAMdisk solution. Highly Recommend”

“Bought this on impulse, thinking it was a risk. However, I'm really satisfied. It is very easy to use and really stable. If you have more than 8GB or RAM, I highly recommend it.”

“Great program and works as advertised. Very simple to use (assuming you take a few minutes to read the docs) and great integration with Steam. Highly recommended.”

About This Software

Dimmdrive is a RAM-based hard drive software built by gamers, specifically for gamers.

With Dimmdrive, you will be able to turn your PC’s RAM into an incredibly fast hard drive. This incredibly fast hard drive can be hundreds if not thousands of times faster than a conventional hard drive.

By playing your game on a faster hard drive:

  • Take full advantage of up to (and over) 10,000+ MB/s hard drive (HD) access!
  • Game load times are significantly faster! We've seen 60 second game load screens turn into 2-3 seconds!
  • Immerse yourself with nearly instant in-game level loading and transitions!
  • Eliminate FPS drops that are due to your hard drive slowing down!
  • Gain a competitive edge against others!
  • Save on wear and tear of your SSDs as RAM lasts nearly forever!

How it works:

Dimmdrive is a Windows-based software built for 64bit Windows 7/8/10. Dimmdrive utilizes excess system RAM to create a virtualized hard drive. Dimmdrive will auto-detect your game and automatically configure itself to work on this virtualized hard drive seamlessly. You simply run Dimmdrive, click a few buttons, and then play your game on an incredibly fast drive. This enables all games and programs to benefit with regards to disk access and load times. Dimmdrive handles the whole game set-up, file mapping, data synchronization, and data integrity of your game.

Dimmdrive has a lot of features built specifically for gamers!

  • Full Steam Integration - Just run Dimmdrive and it will auto-detect all your Steam games!
  • Large games can work with small RAM sizes - Dimmdrive has a "LESS RAM?" feature which enables you to make the important files of a large game go insanely fast, even if you have a smaller amount of RAM.
  • Real-Time File Sync - Never worry about PC crashes as Dimmdrive automatically synchronizes data from your RAMdrive back to your HD!
  • Support for non-Steam games - Simply drag/drop any non-Steam game into Dimmdrive and it will work!
  • Support for general, non-game applications - Use Dimmdrive with any application including video editing, databases, virtual machines, and more!
  • Convenient game sorting options makes large Steam libraries manageable!
  • Incredible community surrounding the software!
  • Direct contact with the developer for suggestions on feature updates!
  • Continual development with free software updates!
