To do this:
- Split the website (springrts.com) into a user portal which pretty much only showcases the games but is a great place for a new user to get started (eg. http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/ or zerok website)
- Make a generic .exe installer for game devs to use that doesn't interfere with you existing spring installer but is easy to use for users, just click-install. Autoupdate is a must.
- Have games on the central spring ppa for linux users so that they can install games from the spring repos as well as try to get the GPL games into major linux releases eg Ubuntu 12.04 for easy installing and free instant media coverage on every single Linux games website
- Make a generic lobby for game devs that is specific to each game and has a nice frontend, eg generic zero-k lobby that makes it less confusing for end users
For the .exe installer, I'm planning on just using Autohotkey to unpack a Portable Spring with the game data included into Program Files, and have a shortcut essentially. For debs, contacted PPA maintainer and see if he could do it. Website, first thing I want to do is get analytics on there and then make a decision based on that. Lobby, I don't know where to start.
