StormFront is an official front end (FE) for GemStone IV and DragonRealms, and works with the Windows operating system. Compared with the Wizard FE, StormFront provides more features, including a point-and-click interface, dialog boxes, and a more advanced scripting engine.

Settings

StormFront stores settings (such as highlights and scripts) separately for each character, either on the server or locally. This can be toggled inside StormFront under Options > Settings > Location.

Local settings are stored as XML files in C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Roaming\StormFront (not the folder in which StormFront is installed).

Visual Skins

There are currently three user interface skins available for the StormFront FE:

  • Original "Storm" Skin - Installed by default
  • StealthFront Skin - Available via play.net Here
  • NishiFront Skin - Available via third party website Here

The Original and StealFront skins were developed by Simutronics and they are both officially supported. NishiFront was developed by a player and it is not officially supported.

To use a downloaded skin: Save the files to your StormFront directory (usually located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Simu\StormFront). You can switch your skin by going to Options > Choose Skin in StormFront.
