You dumped an ALL-IN-ONE installer on most major forums of users who ALREADY HAVE BATTLEFIELD installed.
Question #1 What does this installer do to a user who installs attempting to gain the mod who has a pre-installed copy of Battlefield.
Question #2 What aspects of the registry does it draw from to derive install location.
Question #3 What aspects of the registry does it write too.
and sir... I am just getting started.
It's not an ALL-IN-ONE installer. There's no install process. It was meant to be a PORTABLE "Desert Combat Final" - eg. just unzip and play. It will write out the appropriate registry settings if they don't exist. Yes, you would need to run a cdkey changer. And yes, the Windows user account would need write-permission to registery.
Q1 - some users deleted/removed BF long time ago. or maybe it's a friend who's never played FPS games prior to 2013 - I have many friends who has little experience in running about 3-4 installers, + patching just to play a game. I just made this PORTABLE Desert Combat Final so they just need to do one unzip, then run the game.
Q2 - I have installed Battlefield 1942 / DC to default location, then I have physically moved the BF folder elsewhere. The game runs fine.
