I just came across this site and am pretty happy!
Are you guys working on creating a portable version of FreeOrion that can be stored on a USB key or on a computer where the user does not have administrator privileges?
I've been playing a copy of Master of Orion I via DOSBOX that I keep on a USB key. The benefits are that I can play the game regardless of what computer I'm using, and I can also continue the same saved games regardless of whether I'm on a Windows, Linux, or OS X computer. It's pretty sweet, but Master of Orion 1 is getting long-in-the-tooth and FreeOrion would be a great leap forward.
If you guys could put a portable version of the game on your to-do list, that would be GREAT! You could also consider using the format available over at http://www.portableapps.com
, though it's not really necessary.
Thanks in advance!
