AssaultCube

After searching (and found not even a single mention in any thread)... I'm writing to request a game, AssaultCube... it already can be run as portable (unzipping on PDrive and running from there) but it doesn't keep the settings/profile so a launcher is needed...

Can anybody do it?

uh! http://assault.cubers.net/

And it is GPL...

AssaultCube, formerly ActionCube, is a free first-person-shooter based on the game Cube.

You lucky son of a .....

I still have on week...:-(
And then I'll be gone for 2-3 weeks so dont post tooooo much Wink
Too bad Im missing the platform upgrade Sad
BTW I tried the game.
Its fun but not very complicated; just shoot as many as you can and if you aim for the head and you aim well you get a nice /with deep, low voice/ "Head shot"!
I played Farcry before and I kinda wish that would be portable... :lol:

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

I'm updating the post just to ask for an update on information about the "portabilization" of this... Wink

trying

not to make this thread disappear... I post again to ask if somebody finally did something.

The game is already portable, just don't save settings...

I am confused :(

They say on their website that it is OpenSource and the have the source included but the Readme says:
AssaultCube is freeware, you may freely distribute the AssaultCube installer/archive unmodified on any media. You may re-compress using different archival formats (i.e. zip/tgz/rpm/deb/dmg), any changes beyond that require explicit permission.

But the License it uses is zlib and zlib is on the OSI approved list.

Can I repackage a portable Version or not?

EDIT

I have the whole thing now but the program only works if I run the bat file directly and not if I copy the bat files content to NSIS's ExecWait command. Does any NSIS-geek know why?

Thats what I thought & tried

but it didn't work.
I tried:
ExecWait "$EXEDIR\App\AssaultCube\assaultcube.bat"
and it just lashed a comandlinewindow and closed.
I even tried the thing John uses in Commandprompt portable to launch the bat file but it didn't work either Sad

is this written python?

try
making the batch file this

cd App
cd AssaultCube
start AssaultCube.exe
exit

cd AssaultCube

may need to be
cd "Assault Cube"

I dont know

the content of assaultcube.bat is

bin_win32\ac_client.exe -w1024 -h768 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

I tried just copying that to the Execwait command in NSIS but it didnt work. Do you know what I have to change?
What does %1 mean?
Unfortunately I dont know anything about bat files Sad

try this

change

bin_win32\ac_client.exe -w1024 -h768 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

to

App\AssaultCube\bin_win32\ac_client.exe -w1024 -h768 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

put that into the nsis script
if you already did that try this

@echo off
call assaultcube.bat

save that as a batch file then add that to the AssaultCube folder
in the nsis script call the batch file you just made
hope that works

Didnt work

Both suggestions didn't work Sad

The first one gave me an error I had before:

Maybe its the Execwait command or the way NSIS handles batch files...?

Try this...it works!

If you change the extension of assaultcube.bat into assaultcube.cmd and then use: ExecWait "$EXEDIR\App\AssaultCube\assaultcube.cmd" ,then it will work.

I will

looks like a good idea Smile

EDIT
Yepee!
It works.
Even with the bat extension.
I didn't know that bat files needed a "setoutpath"...
I'll finalize it an upload it.
