Packages with installation

New releases and general discussions.

Currently, the installations installs Construct and VC++ Package + DirectX

Why not posting links for VC++ Package, Direct X and Python insted of putting them into the installer? It just takes space.

Microsoft seem to change their links every few weeks. It's less hassle just to throw them in.

Is it not possible to upload it to sourceforge and then link to that one? Their links shouldn't change so much I believe.

[edit: What the?! Construct works again! :D]

What would the point of that be? It'd be exactly the same amount of bandwidth for SourceForge, and they might have a problem being used as a file host for other people's installers... besides, it's only 10mb or so for the total install... that's nothing these days!

Perhaps you could change the installer and make the prompts for the VC++ and DX9 optional? It is kind of annoying having to cancel them every time I update.
I suppose to do that you'd have to make your own installer though, wouldn't you.
