Today my mom was annoyed because my Windows XP computer didn’t have Minsweeper on it. Now, I can write one for her, but she won’t be able to play it without going into j/pcGRASP, finding the driver, and running it. This is not really something that I want her to have to do; also, isolating the program offers fewer chances for the computer to crash.
I’m planning to have three different files: the driver, the GUI, and the game engine itself. Once I’ve finished writing the code, how do I package it so as to remove it from the context of programming and make it a simple game runnable from an icon (for example) on the desktop?
(This is in Java, by the way.)
