May I include the runner install packages with a blorb?

Postby BBBen » Sun Sep 04, 2016 2:20 am

Mostly a question for Campbell, (although if anyone else has anything to say then go ahead) I'm planning to distribute an executable version and a blorb version of my next game and I'd like to save players the trouble of downloading runner installs by just including them in the zip with the blorb version of my game. Would this be fine?

Yes, that's absolutely fine.

You should still post the blorb-only version on this site as we all have the runner and it is an extra 5MB.

Thanks, that will make things easier for people new to the program.

BTW, the game I'm working on is already over 600mb (with multimedia) and will get bigger so an extra 5mb won't make a difference. :) It may be a little difficult to post it on the site as well, I'll have to be finding other hosting solutions.
