FrontendKitDS is a WormKitDS-like module loader specifically made for changing the Worms 2 frontend as opposed to in-game logic.

It is required for patching the frontend as it does not load the WormKitDS dsound.dll library, which is why FrontendKitWS consists of wsock32.dll, a library only loaded by the frontend, giving it the "WS" suffix. This also prevents issues with WormKitDS modules unaware of having been loaded into the frontend rather than the in-game process.

FrontendKitDS modules use an fk file name prefix.


Click the DLL download link in the info box on the right, and place the downloaded wsock32.dll in your Worms 2 directory, besides frontend.exe. Then, download any Worms 2 frontend related modules and place them there aswell.
