I suppose the last post should have been titled “Premature Windows Release” and not “Prelimenary Windows Release” because it simply did not install correctly. About a week ago I created another Windows installer and tested it heavily accross multiple virtual machines. After that and some feedback from other team members, I fixed a couple of issues that were not related to the installer at all that caused the game to crash if audio couldn’t be initialized. From those fixes and a couple of other windows-friendly tweaks v.0.0.9 was born.
I’m not going to gaurantee that it is perfect, but I will gaurantee files get installed where they are supposed to this time. This release also re-introduces the debian binary packages. Keep in mind that this installer does not automatically install Python or PyGame, so you will need to have those installed first. Some of the devs are looking into adding that feature to the installer, but please don’t mark my works or hold your breathe.
At this point, the only platform that USF is not confirmed to run on is Mac OS X, and that is only due to a lack of resources.
