py2exe


Probably the most commonly requested feature for jrpg was making the installation easier.

Now all in one zip packages are available, thanks to py2exe.

py2exe wasn't that hard, I simply had to prepare a Python script like that:


from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe, glob

setup(windows=["jrpg.py"],
data_files=[
("maps", [
"maps/world.map",
]),
("data", [
"data/demons-kana.txt",
"data/demons-kanawords.txt",
"data/demons-kanji.txt",
]),
("images", [
"images/angband.png",
]),
("images", glob.glob("images/bg-*.jpg")),
"kochi-gothic.ttf",
]
)


Unfortunately I cannot cross-package, I need to use a Windows machine to make py2exe zips, I can't do that from Linux :-(
