Portable Armagetron Advanced?

Hi,
There is a open source game called Armagetron Advanced (http://www.armagetronad.net/). I'd make it portable but sadly, I'm not sure how. I have experimented but I have not succeeded. So I was wondering if anyone could make a launcher for me? Most of the game config is stored in the its application folder in the user profile, but there is some registry modification I think.
Thanks!

Just a thought

Don't quote me on it but I think its portable from the off. It just isn't a PAF tree structure. Just copy the installed folder and mod an existing launcher to suit it, something like xampp launcher.

its already in the portable format

try this site
http://www.framakey.org/Portables/PortableArmagetron&prev
download the game by clicking the floppy icon
when you run the game the first time everything will be in french
this is what you should do
on the main menu select the 2nd last option(system setup)
on the next the 2nd last option again(misc setting)
on the next the 2nd last option again(language setting).
and change it as per your language.

Its a bit buggy, but it

Its a bit buggy, but it seems to work. To get it to run I have to start the app twice. And it seems to like to copy all of my pictures folder (only) Which is a bit strange.

No it writes to the User

No it writes to the User profile and a bit to the registry.

Correct

Yes you are correct. I installed it to have a look this morning for you. I thought I had read previously it was self contained, obviously I was mistaken and I give my apologies, although I did say don't quote me.

No problem.. The other link

No problem.. The other link that tipra.wicked gave works great, does a few strange things but most bugs have been solved, I now have to translate all the stuff. But yeah its works but it just leaves the settings. I did the same things at the begining.
@tipra.wicked - Thanks!
