Releasing a game in .exe

#1 Post by henloanyone » Sun Apr 07, 2019 7:36 pm

I seriously have no idea. Please help

The only tutorials I saw are where they release their game on a folder with an executable file

What should I put in the options.rpy?

I think that can be possible, because an executable file requires some files, so the exe file can be opened or else it cannot be opened. Especially .dll's and other renpy files.
I am a friendly user, please respect and have a good day..

If I understand you correctly, what you want to do is called an "installer". Renpy does not create it automatically, but the files it builds can be put in an installer with another program.
I've used "innosetup" for that, it's a free program to create installers. you can find it here: http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php
