|Phil Roberts||I am just wondering on how you create stand alone executables for your games made in SCI Studio??!?! Could someone please help me out?|
Perhaps I'm missing the question, but SCIV is (relatively) a stand alone application. All you need to include are your resource files, drivers (.DRV) and SCIV.EXE. SCIV will run your game, provided there aren't any serious flaws in them. SCIV comes with any SCI0 Sierra game (King's Quest IV*, Leisure Suit Larry 2 and 3, Space Quest 3, Hero's Quest/Quest for Glory 1, (Laura Bow in) Colonel's Bequest, and a few others [help me out guys!]) Stay away from SCI01 games, the two most popular being King's Quest 1 Remake and Quest for Glory 2. SCI01 will not run SCI0 games, nor vice versa. They are quite proprietary. :'(|
If you mean to package your game in such a way as to hide SCIV or other Sierra created files/programs, yes there is a way, but I'm not going to mention it. It allows people to take credit for Sierra's hard work. Plus, to do it correctly, it's very tricky. :)
Another possibility is to use FreeSCI (freesci.linuxgames.com unless they moved recently.) This is a freely available SCI Virtual Machine (VM) which can run most if not all SCI0 games (the only ones currently supported by SCI Studio), so it would have a very high success change on running your game. A word of warning...it's significantly slower than the original SCI. At least on my machine. :'(
The final possibility to get everything you want would, of course, be to write your own SCI VM. This is an enormous undertaking. If you decide on doing this, you probably won't be finished for a long, long time. :D
I hope this was helpful.
Or just use WinRAR to make a SFX archive and use setup commands:
