LÖVE Executor - make .exes from .loves with a simple web app

Post by unek »

LÖVE Executor (temporary name?)
Make .exes from .loves with a simple web app

Check it out here

ImageImage
This tool generates a .zip with customized game .exe (icon and metadata can be changed) and all the LOVE .dlls. Made for billiam's request.

Conserve my hard disk and bandwidth and please don't put porn on the server (or maybe do?).

Oh and I guess you can use it with curl and automate it with a shell script or something.

Check it out here alternate link if you have slow DNS

How is this implemented? I'm especially interested in how the icons are applied. When I've fixed icons for my .exe games, Windows has always complained about it being "unsafe" (presumably because I just used Resource Hacker).

I use rcedit. Works fine on Wine, doesn't need any .NET frameworks.

It probably needs Mono though.
lf = love.filesystem
ls = love.sound
la = love.audio
lp = love.physics
lt = love.thread
li = love.image
lg = love.graphics

Don't think so, can't recall installing it. IIRC rcedit is purely C/C++.

Lol, probably means there's something wrong with the ico or your .love. Next time save the full error message please, maybe I can fix it.
