It would be really cool to have a free portable multiplayer first person shooter.
Here is one that is free: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starsiege_Tribes
Could we make Tribes portable? Or would it be better to start from something else?
I'm such an idiot. I read to the bottom of that page I posted and found this:
Hey, thanks! I will.
I use Ureal Tournament(Game Of The Year Edition). Install it, add any updates/patches, then copy folder. I would suggest copying it to the desktop before you run it. Because of it being CD size, I make a SFX with 7zip. Cuts half of the size.
You could make it multiplayer as on the internet.
Works great at LAN parties!
Um sorry if this sounds stupid, but you said "I make a SFX with 7zip. Cuts half of the size.", what do you mean by this?
A self extracting archive, as in an .EXE that uncompresses itself without a zip program. More here.
As far as "Cuts half of the size.", I mean just compressing it in general.
It seems that UT2004 can work the same way. 1 "small" problem though - 5.2G uncompressed. I'm sure that removing "manual" & "help" would save alittle space, but I haven't explored how much yet.
Oh ok, thanks.
I probably wont make an sfx for mine as I would use it at school mostly and I don't have time to extract it at school, good idea though.
