The Install Creators?

Advanced Installer 7.7: http://www.advancedinstaller.com/download.html - Used to make very professional installers for games.
Install Creator (Clickteam): http://www.clickteam.com/website/usa/downloads/index/10
On another note: Inst. Creator (Clickteam) PRO License Key (courtesy of myself for licensing the product for multiple use):

Code: Select all

#S#PBTPTYZVTKZI4OAUVIGX3DMR5D1UYYV4AMQAU­WAGBZ3RSDPBHYY4ZUOTJEXQDXQC6A6AUM#E#
- Used to make basic installers (more professional when upgraded to Pro) for games.

I've used all the software I listed, and its all free... I may also make another one for you guys to use. Remember Venima's CFGEditor? Im gonna make one Like that, but with more tools and a much bigger library. Tagged: EasyCFG

I know another install creator; http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page; you can use it by scripting, which is hard :| , but it also has a ".zip to installer" program, which makes an installer, which installs the files of a specified .zip folder; which is easy to use ;)

Acid Xpress is a free loop-based music composing program which is easy to use, to make music.
If anyone wants me too, I could also upload the over 9000 loops I got some time ago, for you all to download and use ;)
