yea you can make exes - you could also make it identically to saurbraten and have batch files run the game, its down to you (the latter is the easiert)
I'm taking modelling requests again - any models you want created,skinned or animated (or all 3) leave a post here:

Well, it doesn't really matter.

Thats true, Most of the games have an exe to run, and keeping a bat to run it would be a good Idea, although you can create a new one and change it to an EXE. Like so...

Right Click "CLICK_ME_TO_START.bat" and select Edit. You should have this line:

Code: Select all

bin\sandbox_fps.exe -qmy_stuff -r %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
When you run PAS, you should get this: "*userdir*>bin\sandbox_fps.exe -qmystuff -r" For example "D:\PAS 2.6>bin\sandbox_fps.exe -qmystuff -r"... What you want to do is add this above the line.

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
then add

Code: Select all

ECHO Running *gamename*
Now save it, Then youre done. Heres what it should look like:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF

ECHO Running PAS 2.6

bin\sandbox_fps.exe -qmy_stuff -r %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
Now, you can make the window stay open, or make it blank so you can convert it to EXE. If you want it blank, it should look like this:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF

bin\sandbox_fps.exe -qmy_stuff -r %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
Now use the bat to exe converter and set the "visibility" to "invisible" and then convert it.

Hope this Helps.
