EDIT: it seems like it's actually not possible (unless I make the exe extract the contents into the comp during runtime, which defeats the purpose of the whole embed thing)... it just works on my comp since I have the source files... sorry

I guess I'll just need to create the "game launcher" inside the game itself...

Well my "Game Launcher" is just a control central for the game like uploading data to a server, Automated Updates system, online high-score and achievement retrieval system. but there a way for an EXE file to put into another EXE file how the DRM existed without it.

Note: Jomarcenter Games/Studio will not put or support any DRM system into any of our games except from the third-party distributors.

Of course it's possible, but I don't know how to do it.


Multimedia Fusion and Game Maker, for example, allow you to create fully embedded executables.

For embedding resources, it's pretty easy. but for embedding a .exe inside another .exe, it's another thing. I will need to embed the .exe, but during runtime it needs to be extracted first before I can run it...

well, I was thinking of actually not having to do do extraction and such... anyway, I don't really need it that much... so maybe this can could be closed...

Me and my friend got into one of our usual discussions after I reccomended him a game, and I remember the last time we had a discussion like that, he disabled his FA account. This time, I found myself constantly checking my friends account hoping it wouldn't happen again. ...But it didn't.

The thing is... I just can't lie about my feelings, sometimes. :(
COMBAT:

Finally showing combat in my game. The lighting system I'm currently using doesn't transfer over into combat, but I am hoping to find a new one soon... or an update for the one I'm using. The plan is to make combat less bright, though. You'll want to click the video link below and visit YT for audio.
Huge thanks to D757 Gaming for his stream, impressions and review of my game, please check him out!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 3rd quarter annual Drifty jam! I'm always so impressed with the games people make! This time our winner dominated both categories!

That feeling when you have an out-of-bounds error and an ai enemy exploits it to kill you
