wow Shocked never though this could count as a tutorial, but apparently I came across this question posted more then once Rolling Eyes So here it is.

First of all - make sure you have ether WinOOT 3.x series or the latest version of v4. If you have WinOOT v4.0 you cannon compile, because it is not a full version of the IDE Rolling Eyes Go to HoltSoft and download latest patch (which is in fact larger then the installer file you got in first place Laughing) If you're using an old DOS IDE instead... well... I refuse to talk to you Rolling Eyes Go get your software updated somewhere.

Now, take a closer look at your menu... See that "Run"? Well I'm sure you do... HoltSoft has done a great job making interface to confuse anyone by naming a bunch of different things with same name Rolling Eyes

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

I'm talking about THAT run menu item Very Happy Click it.

Now a bunch of options come up:

You want the "Generate stand-alone program" item.

That brings up yet another menu Laughing
Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

Those are just some options your program can have while running.

Clicking "ok" will compile your hello world program into a 600kb executable file Laughing

it should be noted that verson 3.x has MANY bugs when compiling espalty when using lessused modulages like sprites, GUI and some of the wired inputs (NET, ect). some times restarting truing then trying to complie b4 you do anything other then load the file will wrok. Also i have found that the compiled verson of progames in turing some times do not run like the verson that is run in turing, epstlay with colors, fonts and perofmance (speed).

Do you have to have Turing installed on a computer to run the .exe?

Nope, it works without it.

What happenes if you have more then one turing file. Like you have an include or import for example. What would happen? Would you stil nee to have all the other files and pictures and crap for it to run and would those files also become exe or would they stay as .tu?

only the code is compiled (though all of it). You still have to include all of your image and data files separatly.

When I used to use my old, Turing (original) stand alone compiler - the .exe's were around 100kb, and now they are nearing 1mb... Does anyone have an explanation for this? I can understand an increase in size (music, gui?, etc.) but it makes it really painful to have a 720kb "hello world" program...

It is painful. But, it is Turing. Sorry, there isn't any logical explanation I can offer. I tried removing all of the predefs and compiling a simple program (that is, a single commented line) and it did nothing to lower the size noticeably.

Where do I get this? The version my teacher gave me gives me an alertbox about it not being able to make an exe yet.

did it say something like a missing end if or end for? pretty sure it would just be syntax

versions before 4.04 or something dont have the compiler built in them so you will get an error message. You will need one of the old compilers to compile (if you need to).

ya turings size of the .exes is a pain. so i use a .exe compressor
thats the only way iv found around it

What is a good .exe compressor? And how does it compress the executable?

1: cexeGui is what i use
2: it works something like winzip but still keeps your .exe playable with out unzipping.
