For the past two years off and on I've been updating FileMaster to work with IcarosDesktop 64bit. The bgui requesters caused it to crash. Also the string handling and number handling were messed up. But now I have replaced some requesters and I'm fixing the strings and numerical functions. It works somewhat.

In the next few weeks I will add more requesters and fix more of it so that it can be used on a regular basis. If you prefer Dopus4 or Dopus Magellan an updated FileMaster may not interest you.

I also have found the sources from Christian Kummerow so at some point I may assemble a combined source with updates.

Having more than one Filemanager is a richness and satisfies more users, in the past I was a fan of File Managers and I used many of them, even the various versions of FileMaster, my favorites were DirWork for Floppy systems and Dopus4 for HD systems.

Some time ago I created a GIF Animation where I included all the screenshots of the various File Managers, see list, I attach the Gif animation file for those who would like to see them all.

Yes. In addition the original author is from Finland so many of the comments and function names are written in Finnish.  :)
