Rocks'n'Diamonds Portable 3.2.3 Pre-release 2 (Testers needed)

New version released; check it out instead
One more to wrap up today, and some more tomorrow Wink

Rocks'n'Diamonds Portable is the popular Rocks'n'Diamonds game packaged in a portable format. It is an arcade style game with support for the Sokoban level format. Plus, it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take your game wherever you go.

Rocks'n'Diamonds Portable 3.2.3 Pre-release 2

Pre-release 2: Now with AppInfo, PAF installer and should now copy your settings. Plus, more configuration stuff (haven't updated Readme yet).

And yes, I know it needs a PAF installer and AppInfo stuff. Wink

Finally!

I'll take a look at it. How long have you been working on this :tongue:?

EDIT: Okay, I looked at it. Everything works, but I don't get the plot of the game.

Actually it doesn't save

Actually it doesn't save settings. I tried it on a second computer and some settings weren't there. When I tried it on the first the settings were back.

Hmm

Sounds like it's not moving your settings. I'll take a look.

Rocks'n'Diamonds Portable could not copy your settings to [UserFolder]\Eigene Dateien\Rocks'n'Diamonds. You may have incorrect permissions.

[UserFolder] = my profil folder on drive c (german windows xp)

the strange in this case is : i am admin on this computer

Could be a launguage issue.

Maybe try a local version.

Or execute straight from RocksnDiamondsPortable\Apps\rocksndiamonds or somthing like that.

Nope.

Defiantly not the desired way, cause it's not portable at all, I just wanted to check if the problem was with the launcher, which it is, something with the language of the launcher. I'll take a look.

Edit: I actually have no idea.

Well,

It basically means that Rocks'n'Diamonds Portable could not copy your settings to your documents folder. Unfortunately, this can't be avoided, as Rocks'n'Diamonds has the path hard-coded.
If you are absolutely sure that you can write to My Documents, I'll make up a diagnostic version for you.

not working either

I got the same error some other folks got about not having permissions, despite me being the administrator. It didn't launch from the launcher, nor directly opening the file from Windows Explorer.

I'm in WinxXP.
