 How to turn your RMXP/RMVX project into a single installable EXE.
#1
During the process of making Fallen Shadows I started to wonder how I could turn my game into a single installable EXE.

Most other games use this function, so why not Rpg-Maker games?

This will work for both your Rpg Maker XP and Rpg Maker VX games.

I use a program called INNO Setup, that does all the work for you.

Step 1 - Download INNO Setup

Step 2 - Install the software

Step 3 - Compress/Encrypt your game

Step 4 - Run INNO setup compiler

Step 5 - Open a new project, usng the express wizard.

Step 6 - Type in the information for your project into the correct boxes.

Step 7 - Okay, once you enter that information, the wizard asks you to pick the main exectuable file. For this, use Game.exe file in your projects folder.

Step 8 - Directly below this, click the "Add Folder" option, and include the entire folder for your project.

Step 9 - The program also adds the option to open a text document up before and after installing. I use this to show information on the game, how to run it, how to play it, and after I show credits on who helped.

Step 10 - Now you can pick a custom folder and or the main installations file name, and also a custom Icon for your game. This must be a *.ICO, and be 32x32 pixels.

Step 11 - Run the compiler, and you have your game, all wrapped up into one nice and compact exectuable!

Does this require the player to have the RTP in order to launch the game?

probably so, what it's doing is creating sort of a virtual directory where it's accessing files inside the block, so everything needs to be there to zip up... Nice tool!
