Does log_parpg.bat work on your system Barra? I assume you are on windows XP?

Yep, just tested it here, log_parpg.bat works fine. I'm running Win XP SP3 (32bit).

I have started to investigate producing a .deb file. The process doesn't look too hard  Roll Eyes, i'll report back when I make some progress (or fail utterly....  Shocked )

Although my first attempts aren't going that well, the file size is a bit scary - 70 MB!

Call me old, but that's more than 71,000x the RAM of my first computer!  Shocked

After some research, if you use the standard linux build commands:

./configure
make
sudo make install


There are various tools that make building a .deb file really easy. Since we are using scons everything becomes a little harder Sad. When I get another batch of inspiration, I'll tackle the task again.

Hmm ... I think creating packages for Linux distributions is too much work.

Ideally the Linux folks should be able to compile something from source, and then package it up on their own.

Anyway checkinstall http://www.asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/ may be of help.

Since the goal of a demo is to publicize a work, I think it will be a mistake to ask people to compile and package it. 

However you don't need to build a package, at least at the beginning. You can provide the binaries and the libraries in a .tgz file.

Tried checkinstall, it relies on the old ./configure ; make ; sudo make install routine, whereas we use (or rather, FIFE uses) scons.

A tar.gz file is looking like the easiest, but it's a hefty 70 MB download right now. 50 MB of that is due to PARPG (mostly due to animations of the figures, that's about 18 MB each, and the music - about 16 MB).
