    Would anyone be interested in an installer that downloads, unpacks and installs TSO as well as its dependencies? Downloading TSO would be done via largefiles.ea.com of course - no piracy here - and unpacking would be done using custom .cab extraction code. Dependencies (OpenAL, .NET Framework etc) would then be downloaded if required and installed. I plan on bundling the packingslips alongside the executable, so as to not destroy the Dropbox file's bandwidth and get it taken down (although I already have a couple of mirrors set up for the occasion that this does happen and Rhys is away). It would then download the newest dist, and prompt the user to launch the game.
    All of this would, of course, be done via NON-METRO GUI.

    Nice. I almost forgot about that, it was actually a really cool project. It's pretty surprising to see that it's actually still up.
    I'm cringing at my old posts.
