Here's a reason why you shouldnt make an installer for your MMF game tiny fellows. Because you install the cncs232.dll or whatever other dll files MMF uses with the installers, but when you uninstall the game you eliminate the cncs232.dll, making all other mmf games you had installed unplayable.

It does, but the cncs232.dll (or cncs32.dll, or knps32.dll, etc.) is stored in the game's directories. It doesn't delete it from your entire computer.

To my knowledge, MMF2 doesn't even use a dll file anymore, it's built into the EXE itself. So that just completely removes ANY excuse for having to use an installer because of "dlls". An MMF game from this point on, should merely be an EXE file, unless you decide to use external files, and even then, you can include them in a zip.

Brandon: Can't you include external files too? With the resource manager or whatever

Actually, I think (haven't tested yet) that MMF2 has an option that automatically includes all external files. I just think that's files MMF2 know's are being used, not files extensions are using though. However MMF2 has such a load of media capability now, you'd be dumb not to take advantage of it.
Real quick example, convert your MP3 to OGG and use it, the options you have are very flexible and until someone comes out with a 5.1 surround sound extension, I don't think you should go with anything else.

If I'm not mistaken though, isn't resource hacker agonized the license agreement though? I've heard that on a number of occasions in the past.
