Thanks for the feedback!

Does Dev Test 2 work on Wine as well? (Based on the wording of your post, it looks like the answer is "no"; I'm not sure just what changes in PAL would cause that)

Hi, ...

New version 2.0.2, but your portable version, only contain version 2.0.1.

Check for update, show that it can be updated to 2.0.2. But the update option inside dont update the game.

Thank you!

Nice catch! I've updated my portable package & am uploading it now. Expect the update within 20 minutes or so. Done.

Thanks for telling me about the update!

Did you find anything like a changelog or similar so I know what is new?

EDIT
Looks like you changed the settings location from settings\history.txt to history.txt and now on update it doesn't find my old settings Sad
I can copy them around manually but is there a reason for this?

Yep, there's a changelog in the TurboRisk help file: open the help file, then navigate as follows: Support and Credits -> History

I changed the settings location after reading this thread, which seems to suggest that Data\settings should be left alone. Do you think I should create a custom-code macro to move the settings files?

ok

found it.
It would be nice if you could add a file to the installer to move the files around so users arent left with an empty set on update. I dont have an example at hand but I think you have to use CustomCodePostInstall.

Yep, I can do that; I've done it with other apps (e.g. Iron Portable and BleachBit Portable), so I know how to do it. I'll post DT2 soon with that macro. Done.

gave a quick look at it, tested it out, looks to be very cleanly done, nothing changed on the host pc, in my opinion, overall looks like an excellent release.

Some minor things...
  1. Help file relates to REAL Studio Portable ?
  2. TurboRisk 2.0.5 is out
  3. Did you notice this conversation about the Risk Trademarks and
    Copyrights issues
  4. Probably you know already, but there is no need to include PAL's source-code, it's best to use the PortableApps.com Application Template

Sorry, just trying to do my work for the release team Wink

Regards

edit: Another thing, TurboRisk is saving it's 'saved games' as default to the App\TurboRisk folder, maybe PAL 2.1 could be the solution here as it can deal with wild-cards. FYI, I've tried to deal with it by changing the working directory, but without any luck.

Thanks

1. Thanks for the report; I recall I was working on REAL Studio Portable around the same time I was working on TurboRisk Portable and probably just got my help files mixed up. I've fixed that in 2.0.5.

2. Thanks, TurboRisk Portable is updated.

3. Whoa, that's not good. I read through the conversation and the TR author agreed to change the app's name, but he hasn't done it yet so I'm going to follow his lead and leave TurboRisk Portable's name unchanged. I'll have to keep an eye on that conversation, especially since it seems to be fairly active (last message was on January 8, 2011).

4. Thanks for the suggestion; I clipped out the PAL source code for this release.

5. I'm not sure how to deal with the saved games, but I'll try to spend some time on that and maybe get something worked out.

Works fine for me. Not sure what to make of regshot; seemed to me that it registered the .trg same game extension, but I must be misreading the compare - it isn't associated with anything, anyway.

Only detail - when hitting 'save' in the game, it suggests saving in PortableApps\TurboRiskPortable\App\TurboRisk\ folder - (if possible) shouldn't that be in the data folder?

Nice job, classic game.

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm not sure what's up with the .trg extension; I haven't seen TurboRisk try registering that. It might just be TR checking to see if it's associated with that extension?

With regard to saved games, Mark Sikkema brought up the same concern earlier. I'm not sure how to deal with that, but I'll spend some time on it and see if I can get something worked out.

Regarding saved games, if the

Regarding saved games, if the game (as many other, mainly older apps do) just saves in the folder it's run from, well, no way to fix that I think. No biggie.

As for the regshot, you're probably right. Nothing was associated, just saw a bunch of registry keys related to the extension and Explorer, along with all the usual windows crap (recent files etc).

Its all clean here (Win XPSP3 limited user). Did you try the built-in updater? Is it portable?

I really like the app (although I lost today :().

Yep, the built-in updater looks portable. I saw the usual collection of Windows junk in my Sandboxie, but nothing that seemed to be caused by the updater.
