Build status

This is a community project, so if you have some time and knowledge to give, we'll be glad to add you as a contributor to this project. If you have any suggestions, issues, bugs, or crashes, please look at the Issues page first to see if it has been reported before and try out the latest AppVeyor WIP build below to see if it has already been addressed. If it hasn't, please open an issue that's as descriptive as you can be. Help me make this a better program for everyone :)

For those who like to test the newest features, download the latest AppVeyor WIP build here: AppVeyor

System Requirements

Even though this is written in C#, this program can only be used on Windows systems due to one of the base programs, DiscImageCreator, being Windows-only. There is some preliminary support for Linux underway, and we will try to integrate with that when the time comes.

  • Windows 7 (newest version of Windows recommended) or Mono-compatible Linux environment (MPF.Check only)
  • .NET Framework 4.8 or .NET Core 3.1 Runtimes (.NET Core 3.1 is mostly functional due to a dependency issues but may be unstable in some situations)
  • 1 GB of free RAM
  • As much hard drive space as the amount of discs you will be dumping (20+ GB recommended)

Ensure that your operating system is as up-to-date as possible, since some features may rely on those updates.


For all additional information, including information about the individual components included in the project and what dumping programs are supported, please see the wiki for more details.


A list of all changes in each stable release and current WIP builds can now be found here.

MPF uses some external libraries to assist with additional information gathering after the dumping process.
