Default Installers

Hello, I've recently became interested in having my finished games packaged as installers, but how exactly do I have them in that format?

I have used NSIS in the past, but for simple, play-once games many people won't want to deal with an installer and will just prefer something they can unzip. If you wanted, you could offer downloads in both formats.

This is groundbreaking! Thank you Spacemaniac! I think it will be extremely useful for packaging worlds as well.

Question Re: Installers

Hmm, Sourceforge has been taken over by hackers who have injected ransomware randomly into packages. Is there an alternate site where I can get installers?

Sourceforge is still usable in a pinch if you pay attention; I think NSIS in particular is probably safe. You might find use in navigating manually to the Files tab, the latest version, and downloading the .zip rather than the -setup.exe package.
