Compiling a stand alone

Do these newer versions have a way to compile a stand alone?
I read some of the forums here, last I heard was in 2015 that someone was working on a "js"? something? but it was dropped. I thought for sure the older versions did.

thanks!


I've dug around in 5.8.0 source code a little bit. Currently, there is no way of compiling games to have stand-alone executable, Quest games would require a "player" to run them.


thats what I figured. I have lots of very old versions of quest, i'll check those. If I remember, I thought that quest functioned very similar to RPG MAKER where it is compiled into the "player". then all you have to do is include the assests (tilesets and sound)


I was just asking the same thing, I'll let you know if I find anything


the only reason I ask, there are a few people I want to send my story to - check it, test it as I build it, seems like a lot of overhead for such a tiny piece of code to play. to bad there is not a way to gargoyle to understand quest. that would be the PERFECT player.

I'd say that Quest 5.8.0 is more interpreter than a compiler - where Quest app is essentially a VM.

Yeah, I can understand what you mean - it could be very convenient and awesome to do so :)
Unfortunately, Quest's code has lots of inter-dependencies - thus I think it would be hard to refactor existing code and add such feature (unless I am missing something...)
