Turn .swf file into an .exe?Community Forums/Monkey Talk/Turn .swf file into an .exe?
| Is it possible to turn a .swf file, generated by Monkey into an .exe file? I`ve played several PC games that are in .exe format that have been made in Flash and just wondered how it is done.|
| Well, you could use SWFKit, which is incredibly expensive: http://www.swfkit.com/|
Or develop it with Adobe AIR, which is free (kinda): http://www.adobe.com/products/air/
...but why? If you've written it in Monkey, isn't the whole point that you can just compile to exe instead using the OpenGL target?
| I was just curious really. Some Flash games can be downloaded and already include some sort of player that doesn`t need to be installed by the user. |
| This seems to work:|
| Thanks, I will take a look.|
| You can try Adobe's own Flash Player, it has a menu item called Create Projector.|
| Thank you skidracer, I`ll take a look at that too. |
