My simple version for Windows was to:

1. Extract files from zipped file

2. Try to remember where I put the files

3. Try clicking on the files until the game started

4. Remember it's called "start" with a .something afterwards

I'm not muddling up my understanding with facts and all that! :D
There are 4 "Start" files, 2 for Windows, 2 for Linux (and iOS I think)

Windows: BATch files

Since I don't use Windows: I GUGLed; How to run a batch file in Windows:
Running a batch file from within Windows

A batch file runs like any other executable file by double-clicking the file within Windows. However, because a batch file runs in a command line, it immediately exits when done, so you may only see a black box for a second.

Run a batch file from the Command Prompt

To run a batch file, move to the directory containing the file and type the name of the batch file. For example, if the batch file is named "hope.bat," you can type "hope" to execute the batch file.

Do the same for the Linux versions: How to run a bash script in Linux:
Linux (and iOS)

BTW: All four files have the same line in them:

Code: Select all

java -jar desktop.jar fullscreen
So it is obvious you need java installed

On my system:

Code: Select all

Today PC version only:

If there will be no bugs then tomorrow I will release Android version, later iOS.

Please check if all is good. I made many internal changes which are needed for new things in future.
Hi! I was just wondering if you have instructions on how to install on PC, as there is no .exe and the .bat file doesn't seem to work to install. Can only unzip. Are we supposed to use emulator only?

Thank you and Thank you for creating such a great rpg game :)

As long as you have the latest java installed, you can unzip file to anywhere( i left it in my downloads folder) then open it find destop.jar and it will run once double clicked

По моему между пк версии и андроид версии нету разницы. Я играю в эмуляторе там для меня удобнее) :)
