Why would you need to create a new page?  Are you suggesting it does a manual check i.e. ask the user "Do you have a valid Crysis Wars key?" and then creates a random one if they don't?

Couldn't we just create a boolean that returns a true/false depending on if the registry value already exists and then only run the .bat (or the pascal) if it is not present?

Yes the first page after the EULA is the InfoBeforeFile.

The trial still comes with SecuROM, right? If it doesn't, I can get a friend of mine to play.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but why would you want to have SecuROM?

I misread your question! Nope, no SecuRom

Az, could we use this constant to return the value:
Code: [Select]
{reg:HKxx\SubkeyName,ValueName|DefaultValue}and then if it returns a value don't overwrite it and just continue with installation.

That's the idea. Actually I'm running into stupid issues, I guess because Inno only embeds a subset of Pascal and what has been left out isn't very well documented (or at least not obvious for someone not completely familiar with Pascal). This makes the Pascal doc I found not always helpful... Anyway, that's what I'm aiming for, yes.


Couldn't we just create a boolean that returns a true/false depending on if the registry value already exists and then only run the .bat (or the pascal) if it is not present?

Yesterday I had a valid Crysis Wars key, but the installer couldn't know that because it wasn't in the registry. A combined installer is most convenient for when wars isn't already installed, so I feel it's important to give the user the opportunity of entering his valid key, if he has one.

By the way, your note on the first page is a bit misleading. It is possible to join a key-checking server with Crysis Wars Trial, provided you have a valid key in the registry.
I joined TLL Matchbox #2 and MWLL Official #1 without issues yesterday, and I doubt very much the latter bypasses the key verification. Though I didn't test without a key and I can't test right now as I haven't updated yet.


The trial still comes with SecuROM, right? If it doesn't, I can get a friend of mine to play.

As far as I can tell, no.
No Securom folder anywhere on my system drive, no hit for Securom in the registry.

Nothing of the sorts.

This is a great idea!

Not even the retail version comes with it, technically. Only Crysis Warhead might have some copy protection, but Crysis Wars itself has no DRM whatsoever, apart from key authentication on servers.

Good News Everyone!

Version 1 of the installer is ready to rock and roll:

Changes:
  • Updated to 0.7.1
  • Added Az's awesome registry key page (detects previous keys, allows users to enter their own and generates new ones as required)
  • Bundled Cryhammer in the folder "Crysis Wars\Tools\Cryhammer" to aid with legitimate key issues
  • Added an additional "\" to the InstallDIR registry value (so it will work with Cryhammer)
  • Fixed problem with InstallDIR value having an extra "\Wow6432Node" in some 64bit installs
  • Added an image to the installer
  • Added readme to the .zip (includes a legged mad dog)
  • Removed a lot of redundant data from the default "attributes.xml" for the default profile "Mechwarrior"
  • Reworded some of the pre and post install info to reflect changes
First post will be updated shortly

So that friend of mine I was talking about on IRC (a GhostRyder that apparently still has not registered on these forums) gave it a try over the weekend and it worked. He said there may have been some connectivity problems on his end and he'd have to double check everything but he was able to connect to a random server other than funbocks - a lessfunbocks - which I think confirms that it works!

THIS IS AMAZING!!!
