I could not say enough about Dash Faction to thoroughly praise it. Dash Faction takes an older beloved game and makes changing settings, launching the game, and launching mods much easier. Every time I launch an older game I wish it had a fan base like the Red Faction/Faction File community to create a launcher and settings hub as easy and comprehensive as Dash Faction is for Red Faction.

Rafalh as always doing excellent job of making the game better and better. The autosave feature in particular is a godsend for newcomers, who have a chance of screwing up and softlocking themselves at the various timer sections in the game by saving at the wrong time and not making a backup.

Keep up the great work Rafalh.

Always love to see this patch keep getting stronger and better. The Autosave feature in this was something crucial and needed now in today's games when new generations of players are used to it. Rather than regretting not saving and end up starting again from zero.

Congrats Ralfy! :!

rafalh you are incredible - this is definitely the best Dash release yet. Great work!

1.8.0 has an enormous amount of bug fixes and added features, but the autosave function is definitely the most impressive part of this release. It's super useful and is going to save players a ton of grief.

Thank you so much rafalh for your on-going work and dedication to RF - your work is appreciated immensely.
