I see. That sounds very promising. However, I'm not sure that really works on every machine. I heard of Visual C++ runtimes that might be required or DX11 drivers and I really like these desktop shortcuts or uninstall entries. I wonder if really everyone can do that. Is there a guarantee that this will always work, maybe an official OK from the devs/publishers?
Mawthra: ... Ashen was a literal "right click, copy, paste" and it will run on any machine without doing anything else... and you can also do that for every GOG game you install... in the root of a GOG install for, say, Darksiders III (see attached)... the majority of files are 100% not necessary for the game to run, they're just the install remnants from GOG... the ones highlighted (in the screenshot) are ALL you need to run the game... copy those to any machine and you'll be on your way without even knowing what a registry is...
I know I set the bar relatively high, but as a paying customer with potentially not much computer knowledge I just want some reassurances that this method really works.
Okay, I agree they are DRM free then, if this really reliably works. Zipping or copy-and-past a folder is also easy enough that I would trust anyone can do that.
amok: ... I have done it couple of times... it was no trouble at all, quite straight forward... anyway, most DRM free games on steam do not need any regediting at all, just copy-paste the folder. I zip them for storage, personally.
There seem to be really DRM free games on Steam and Epic (not just ones that do not need the client to run) which can be "installed" on new computers.
