      Hello everyone, I am working on a game idea and since I am still in the process of learning C# and the features available in unity I was hoping some of you might be able to offer me a little insight on things in general for getting started.
      I guess the basic components of what I'm wanting to create would be a Multi-levels management/city builder/rpg.
      The goal is to provide a framework for players to interact with, build in and affect the world both from a 3rd person action RPG as well as a zoomed out 4x style view (This would be something unlocked through gameplay)
       
      As for my questions go I was wondering if anyone had resources that could help me learn.  I've been on youtube as well as enrolled in an online course for basic unity and C# and will continue those but if anyone has any words of advice, a place that has good information and tutorials etc.
       
      Thanks for your time.

      SCAN. DRILL. SURVIVE.   ISOLATED Release in May 1st 2018   https://store.steampowered.com/app/805950/Isolated/   A game by Jérémie Bertrand Music & Sound Design by Pierrick Querolle *** Our solar system has been invaded by strangers.

      Hi guys!
      This is a independent game being produced by me and my brother. We’ve been working on it for about 6 months and we’ve already done a good part of the game. We hope to finalize and make it available on Steam by the end of this year.
      We are using Blender 3D and Gimp software for production.
       
      About the Game: Dongo Adventure will be a 3D platform style game, where the main character (Dongo) is a mouse that ventures through various scenarios (sewers, culverts, streets, electric grid, etc.) and faces several enemies along the way (cockroaches, mosquitoes, spiders, toxic gases, electrical wires, etc.). He carries a basket / backpack with cheeses that he uses to throw and defend himself from enemies, as well as being able to push objects that helps him to overcome obstacles. The ultimate goal will be a surprise!
       
      Now we are developing new scenarios and enemies. We hope to publish news soon...

Having problems converting my game to exe

Recommended Posts

My game is in python using pygame.  It has a lot of images and sounds. With multible scripts.  I tried to use pyinstaller but it failed.  Not up to date with python 3.6.  Is there anything better other than Fx_freeze.  I'm having trouble understanding there docs..

  I would really like to add my game to some sites and I'm told converting the game to a exe is my best bet

In the past, I've used both py2exe and cx_freeze for Python/Pygame games. Both have worked, in terms of making a working executable.

I don't remember the exact syntax to make them work, but I know that both of those will work.

The end result isn't an indtaller, though; it's simply a copy of your directories/scripts/game files, with an executable binary file to launch the game. From there, you still have to "package" the game (for "packaging", I would always just zip or tar.bz2; I never made a proper "installer")

Thank you masskonfuzion,  I tried cx_freeze with tutorials last night along with trying to make a bat file to play it and both were unsuccessful. 

   does anyone know of some better examples of use.   all the examples  and tutorials I can find are all with little games.  mostly or all one script and one or two image files.  I have nearly 100 images and about 20 sound files...

  here is my script for my cx_freese *

-----------------------------------------------

from cx_Freeze import setup, Executable
setup(
 name = "spaceshooterREMASTEDgame",
 version = "0.1",
 description  = "classic space shooter",
 executables = [Executable(spaceshooterREMASTEDgame.py)])
---------------------------------------------------------------------
NameError: name 'spaceshooterREMASTEDgame' is not defined  <-----this is the error I get in my command window when attempting to build the setup.py file

I fixed this problem by copying the file cxfreeze-quickstart and pasted it in the file with my main script.  Then I ran it in my bash hub.

Made me a perfectly good setup.py script.  ran that (python setup.py build).  Then after the build folder was complete I pasted the images and sound files into the same build folder...and.....a working executable
