Our Review:

Similar to DIZzy, DAMN NFO Viewer is a small and quick application. The developer's homepage is no longer available but the program still works and can be downloaded from a third party website.

The link on the programs menu leads to another obsolete website and the release build dates back to 2002.

The options are limited but contain some levels of customization even with its relatively small file size. It supports custom text and background, links and even link hover colors.

There is no drag-n-drop file system like all the others, but opening is simple enough from the top menu bar. The text seems to render funny when opening a file from the menu (as opposed to double-click). This makes navigation from the application DAMN impossible.

Without prompting, DAMN NFO Viewer sets itself as the default viewer.


Official Description

DAMN NFO Viewer is an utility designed for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (e.g. nfo files), and it proved itself to be handy. So, if you're fed up with starting some DOS-like file manager each time you need to view nfo file, or ain't too happy with the viewer you use, or (worst case) use Notepad - give this little tool a try.
