Hi! =D

I've used VX Ace a ton, and I don't know if I'm going insane or not, but I could have sworn that for that software, when you export your actual game, the end result is a single, compressed exe file. And then you have to extract that file to get your game.

In MV, what I'm getting is the fully extracted file. Is there an option to make it a single compressed file, like on VX Ace?

Sorry, I looked around and searched for an answer to this, but didn't see anything. Am I going crazy, or do the two programs deal with game file creation very differently?

I only ask because I'm having a hard time hosting my MV game file. :\

You need to use third-party programs to do that - for example the enigma virtual box (see help file) if you want it to keep being a single executable or any setup creator of your choice from the internet.

MV can't create a compressed archive because it needs to be able to deploy to different devices, and such a compressed exe would prevent the other deployment options (for example you need to process the android export through crosswalk to get an android apk file)

Out of sudden, snow. Everywhere.
Blech. I hate coming up with stories. Making gameplay is fun but coming up with lore and reasons for these areas/mechanics just makes me sleepy.
40 card deck size, the plugin seems more sluggish.
