Risk

I found on Sourceforge Risk. All the versions are java based (or php). There is one particular Java-based Risk game that runs with a bat file. If you already have Java in your common folder, then you can edit the bat file. Instead of "java -jar risk.jar" it will be "..\commonfiles\java\bin\java -jar risk.jar".

How, exactly, may I ask did you do this? I have a legal copy of SC and SC:Brood War, and would really like to play it off a flash drive. Some info would be appreciated.

Well,

Now you got me thinking. I'm pretty sure that it's portable, again, except for the fact that you need java to run it. Oh, the link.

Risk II

I have the original Hasbro game Risk II on my thumb drive. I removed several unneeded files (readme.txt, etc) and compacted it. Total folder size is just over 200MB which on my 16GB thumb drive is no problem. Runs just like ti does on my computer as well.

Flash Is a good option

Want some small, fun games to keep on your flash drive?

Try Flash. (pun not intended)

Think about it.

There are literally tons of good .swf (Flash) and .dcr (Shockwave) games to play online.

All you need to do is save the game to your flash drive, no unpacking, installation neccessary. If you can play it after you save it to your computer, it can be played anywhere, even on your flash drive. The game will open in your browser.

If your don't know how to find the game file, there are two ways to do so:

1)Just find a game that you like,

Open the source code.

(Ctrl+F)ind the "embed src," copy it, and paste it into your browser window, and click Go!

And then click on the "file menu in the top-left corner, and hit "Saave Page"

2)Find a game that you like,

save the entire page to your computer, and then look through it for a file with the extension:

.swf

or:
.dcr

Then save it to your flash drive, and delete the rest of the files!

(As far as I know, they should be stealth. But don't take my word for it.)

Or if you have firefox, get the adblock plus plugin, right click the button that will appear on the bottom right corner of the game you want to download, and click "save link as..."

But another downside of Ad-Block

Is that it only works with Firefox.

Sure, Firefox is a great browser, but at home, my personal preference is Opera.

You seem to be...

...repeating yourself, Ryan. I wish flash games were portable, though. There are a lot of great flash games out there that I want on my flash drive, so I can continue my game later. One of my favorites is Motherload from Miniclip.com. But the game takes forever to beat (I spent 7 hours playing it and still didn't beat it).

2 questions

1)Could this be avoided with a portable version of Flash Player?

(One that is edited to reroute the AppData directory to a location on your flash drive)

2) If so, are there any open source flash players we could edit to acheive this?

Just a thought.

I'm new here, and forgive me

I'm new here, and forgive me for reviving an old thread, but I use Flash at work a lot, so I've become familiar with using it offline as Projectors for presentations.

To do this for free, and legally, you can search google for SAFLASHPLAYER.EXE. That's the Stand Alone player for flash movies, say like the ones you've already discussed in this thread here.

Well how to play them on a thumbdrive then? This is where SAFlashplayer.exe comes in. Launch the Stand Alone player, and then browse to File > Open, and locate your flash game/movie aka .swf file.

Now, once it's loaded you go to File and select > Create Projector.

This will create a Stand Alone Flash Player with your SWF inside it, allowing you to play it off your thumbdrive Smile

One small problem, the game will show up as Shockwave Flash Player in the PortableApps menu. To fix this you can then ResHack the Projector file to reflect the game's name as well as change it's icon.

I've also made a small loader in Flash that basically executes a bat file named "portable.bat". I use this as a launcher for games that need to set registry keys, and therefore need to be executed in a bat file that creates the registry keys beforehand. This Flash loader is then ResHacked to match the games I've moved to my thumbdrive(Creative Zen), to show up nice and neat inside of the PortableApps launcher menu with their respective icon and title Smile

I'm going to post a tutorial and the launcher this weekend to tide people over until PAM can launch batch files natively.

Less is more

Wow

I was using the stand-alone flash player, but I had no idea about this Projector thing.

Thanks man!

*Edit*
Is there a way to UPX the projector?

because a 500Kb .swf file becomes 3.5 MB (approx) when put in a projector.

But when I tried to UPX it, it wouldn't compress, saying

upx: E:\PortableApps\Games\SuperMario.exe: CantPackException: 
compressing certificate info is not supported

Mame games

Mame games work

Structure

PortableApps
    |
    Mame
       // BAT FILE AND COMPILED EXE HERE
    App
       |
        // Mame files here
             |
       Roms
        // Game roms here

Use the following batch file for Space Invaders and name it invaders.bat where mamepp.exe is the mame launcher (I think the new versions use mame.exe)

cd "\PortableApps\Mame\app\"
\PortableApps\Mame\app\mamepp.exe invaders
exit

Compile the following AutoIT script as Space Invaders.exe

#include 
$rc = _RunDos("start \PortableApps\Mame\invaders.bat")

There may be a better way but it works.

Get AutoIT HERE
Get mame HERE

Just make new launchers for each game
