Minetest Installers

by XCalibur54 » Post

I've always been a bit annoyed by *.zip files so I decided to make Windows installers for Minetest. Also for less computer-oriented people it should be more convenient to install and uninstall.

Today I made the installer for 0.3.1: http://www.mediafire.com/?0iimvmn8m8l9iac
I'll make an installer for the current 0.4 release soon.

The installer puts Minetest into your Program Files directory, adds shortcuts to the Start Menu, and adds a desktop icon.

I really need a 32x32 icon to go with the installer, because at the moment it's just a generic boring icon.

Use the Minetest site logo:

(You'll need to scale it down of course)

That's what I tried, but the program I was using still wouldn't accept it.

Unlike some other modern OS's that'll take anything from jpg to png to svg for an icon ;)

+1'd, heh. You can convert images to .ico files using GIMP.

Also: I dislike installers, mainly because of occasional issues (such as permission errors).

However, this hurts performance if you're viewing a lot of SVG files in a file manager, on slow computers.
