The Installer for the latest Rev i386 is here. If you guys want me to compile up and make these I'm up for it and if criticism.

File name: s25rttr_20120117-7780_windows.i386.exe File size: 4.92 MB

Installer adds:

- Shortcuts to Desktop, Start Menu Quickbar, Programs Menu
- Adds Update shortcut to Programs menu
- Ending the installation and having the option to:
    - Enter the website (useful if its redistributed)
    - Read the Readme file
    - Start the game
- No zip mess.
- Multi-language support
- Uninstall Protocol  

Things that can be added/taken:

- Terms of Agreement can be added.
- Background Installer can be taken away (The screenshot saying RttR
- Map Editor can be added.
- Reboot Windows option can be added to the end of the installation.
- Enforcing people to reboot, read the readme file, enter the website, play the game right after the installation can be added.

To ease up the process and to look like a bit more professional don't you guys think? And i'll try and make for Mac and Linux if possible.

well, we're only creating (windows) installers on native (release) builds.

the other builds are auto generated on a cross compiler. (sure I could create a setup script for NSIS and run it via wine, but thats a bit ugly)

Wouldn't it be possible to include an installer in every package which just copys the files?

should be able too, a self extracting installer. I'll get right on it. Oh and hello Flosoft :waves:

okay I've found out that nsis works also nativly on linux (to create windows installer's) - so if someone writes me a correct nsis installation script, I will add it to the build jobs (so it will also create a installer)

and for linux/macosx:
