 If you're releasing a theater, its mostly done with [[falcon4:​tools:​nsis_installer|NSIS installer]],​ when the installer is done, put in a readme and package them together into a well named rar. If you're releasing a theater, its mostly done with [[falcon4:​tools:​nsis_installer|NSIS installer]],​ when the installer is done, put in a readme and package them together into a well named rar.

 +Why EXE installer for Falcon 4 theaters but not OFP/ArmA series? Well they are like completely different things, while the OFP/ArmA installing is just putting X number of pbo files in a dir, in F4 we have to do million things with batch files for example like running terrain rebuilder, recreate tiles, modify .lst file, you name it... try to do that without EXE installer and you are a true wizard :)

 +However on more serious note; Falcon 4 EXE installers never ever should modify users registry, not to even mention adding shortcuts or crap into users windows menus/​desktops,​ make sure your EXE installer is very "​clean"​ in that regard.
