Mahjong Portable 1.8 Pre-release 4 (Testers needed)

I had this sitting in my projects folder and I hadn't done anything about it, so I decided to clean it up a little and upgrade it to the next version.
Note: it doesn't have a splash screen yet, because John hasn't sent me any of the splash screens I've asked for, nor the source. It also doesn't have a new installer, a help.html or the ability to run from a CD. That said,

Mahjong Portable is the popular Mahjong game packaged in a portable format. You can play up to 3 of your friends at once, or just play a game against the computer. Plus, it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take your Mahjong game and settings wherever you go.

Mahjong Portable 1.8 Pre-release 4

Pre-release 2: INI example added, various readme changes.

Pre-release 3: Updated with a new style PAF installer and AppInfo stuff.

Pre-release 4: Added a help.html, thanks to Patrick.

I'll probably be releasing a few more today, but all without splash screens as well. I'd also like to point out that Limewire Portable is going to happen, I have written a patch for it and it should be in the next version of Limewire.

Pshh.

"the popular Mahjong game"

Haha, clearly not.

I've never played it, and if I haven't played it, then it's not popular. Blum

But I will not, kay? Biggrin

Well,

I meant the actual Mahjong, not that specific implementation of it. I still don't get it, but I had to get rid of it Biggrin

I can't find the download directory listing either to find out if it was a typo.

No longer exists? Fancy real download page?

What the hell! Kangaroos? Pfft, you probably think that I'm going to have some shrimp on the barbie for lunch! Blum

Anyway, I've fixed the error. It was a error with the template, so all the links were broken. I had it there in preparation for v2 of my system.

Kiddo, John's installer is much better and takes only a second to compile...?

And want me to edit the help files from other apps for you? It's not much, but I have nothing better to do. Smile

For this one.

Also missing AppInfo and

The DisableSplashScreen entry allows you to run the Sunbird Portable Launcher without the

You've posted the pr2 about 5 minutes after I downloaded the first version Smile

Are you considering moving to NSIS installers instead of .7z?

I'll get a version of that up in the next pre-release, which will have a proper page (and hopefully a splash, if John ever sends the source to me).

It would only take him two seconds and he doesn't have to read anything. Blum

It's a paid font and you need it to make the splash. I may have to buy it if I don't already have it.

Well...

Version 3 leaves
C:\Documents and Settings\username\xmj.ini
behind.
Is that changed in Version4?

Something else:
It wants to access the internet so it changes the registry keys

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\
StandardProfile\AuthorizedApplications\List\path_to_app

I'll take a look at those when I get on my computer.
Later, at Ryan's computer: I don't get the xmj.ini in my $PROFILE directory, I get it in the root (C:\)
Hold on, I'll try running it from my test drive.
Nope, still saves it to C:\
Can you delete the file and confirm? Also, what specific flavour of Win XP (Pro, Home, SP1, SP2, etc) and what type of user account (Admin, Guest, Normal, any group policies, etc)?

Yeah, it does attempt to access the internet when running a local game, even if you turn error reporting off. Which isn't very nice behavior.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Original Version

Most portable apps seem to be originally non-portable. Is that the case with this one? Is there an installable version somewhere? Just curious.

Quite Good.

Mahjong Portable is quite good, but the interface could be better.
All in all, I like it.
Best of Luck!
