How to Wrap/ WME Project
« on: December 09, 2013, 11:56:07 PM »

It's been a few months since I last used WME but I'm now wanting to crack back on with my micro project!

In a nut shell what is the best method for packaging the game into installer that offers all the, icons, splash screens, task bar etc?

Regards,

After you compile everything in WME (and setting all the project settings including icons, etc.) I would suggest using some of already existing packages.

We use InnoSetup but also Nullsoft installer is very good.

On non-windows platforms the situation is more tricky. :)

Hello! thanks, I will have to use innoSetup when I get the chance. Is it harder using the packaging tools on mac and DMG's etc?

Kind Regards,

Visual Studio has a good installer feature and lets you make one pretty easily and quickly.

Thanks, I've never used Visual Studio. I will have to have a look when I get the chance.
