First, follow my tutorial on compressing your game
and note that it's not the original tutorial. Now, you will be using Autoplay Media Studio 7.0 and CreateInstall for this tutorial. You can download Autoplay Media Studio here
and CreateInstall here
. You should have already extracted your newly compressed EXE file and replaced your previous folder. That means that you have your entire game there without much accecability to the music folder, graphics folder, and an encoded script file. Also, your .rvproj file should be on your desktop. You can now replace the RGSS2 folder in C:/Program Files/Common Files/Enterbrain/ with the backup on your desktop. Open CreateInstall and follow these instructions:
- Click the Files tab
- Doubleclick Add New Item...
- Where it says Source Files, click the folder icon to the right.
- Select the directory of your game.
- Use the other commands and features of CreateInstall to create an install as in depth or as basic as you want. I'm not gonna get into that. Everything should be self-explainatory.
- Create the EXE install file.
- Open Autoplay Media Studio 7
- Click Create New Project
- Name Your Project
- Select Blank Project
- You can customize your design as much as you want. The important thing is that you add two buttons
- Right-click the first button and click Properties. You can customise these settings as much as you want but first go to the Quick Action tab.
- Under Action to Run, select Run Program.
- Under File to Run, click Browse
- Select the EXE of your install file.
- Click OK
- Repeat step 12 for the second button
- Under Action to Run, select Exit/Close
- Click OK
- And now you're done making the base. You can still make tons of extras and stuff but I'm not gonna cover that.
- Click Build. It's the gold disc near the end of the tools bar at the top of the screen.
- Select Burn Data CD/DVD and click next
- Select all your settings and click Burn
Well that's it. You should have an install disc to distribute that will automatically run when you put it in. You can actaully sell it and nobody would know that you weren't a professional company. Unless you used the unregistered version of everything, anyways. I'll leave the design of the disc cover and disc label or the design of the distribution box to you.
