BZFlag for jump drives?

Post by yosef » Thu Mar 08, 2007 5:57 am

Is it possible to put BZFlag on a jump drive for use on different computers? If not, can I find (or make) a mod that allows one to do this?

My son installed BZFlag onto a 2Gb jumpdrive. It works fine. He just pointed the installer at his jumpdrive. He's using Windows XP.

Note that it wouldn't be completely portable. It'll leave tracks in the My Documents folder.
I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.

How do you do that? I used PStart to specify BZFlag to use the profile on my flash drive. It's the only program that I can find that will actually change the drive path on-the-fly and accept command lines.

and in that thread, this was said:
JeffM2501 wrote:-configdir can be used to specify a local path for the configs to be made in. you can set the dir to a path on the flashdrive. But note this is only in the latest 2.0.9 builds, so you will need one of those from http://beta.bzflag.bz/builds/2.0.x/
or you can build from the CVS...

I knew that... It's the exact same thing I did with PStart. Shortcuts don't work as well. Too much confusion.
