    OUTDATED - NEW VERSION: http://forum.freeso.org/threads/freeso-installer-concept-v2-0-video.1688/

    Hello FreeSO community! I know what you're thinking.. OMG ANOTHER CONTRIBUTE FROM THIS WEIRDO!? Well, this time is very useful and amazing! (yes i'm modest)
    Installing FreeSO is very hard, a lot of steps, hard to find the official thread and so on. WHY NOT A BEAUTIFUL INSTALLER FOR E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G?
    Well, thats my idea for the GUI of this possible idea.
    Hope you like it :)

    I like your progress bars (fit with freeso theme), and the idea of showing all of the steps separately, but for some things (downloading TSO definitely, FreeSO will eventually be large due to custom objects/patches) it will need a detail progress bar, download speed, estimated download times. Remember that we will have to use Windows Forms to have a cross-platform installer.

    The only thing stopping me from making an installer right now is the technical implication of downloading a ton of .cab files and unpacking them dynamically. This is to require less user space during installation (so we're not storing 2x the game size during the installation process)
    Tori Sim, pisarz1958, zero35 and 2 others like this.

    Do you have the image that goes along the side of this? I'd rather use the original than rip the one from the mockup :)
