Installer for S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat Gunslinger mod

Hey all,

hope that someone can help me to install the S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat Mod Gunslinger.

I’m a complete noob regarding Lutris, so I don’t know how to write the install script for this one.

I’m not an expert on writing install scripts either, but here are some tips:

  • I just checked the link you posted, and the installation instructions for this mod seem pretty simple.

    1. Download the zip file.
    2. Run CheckUpdates.exe to install/update.
    3. Run Mod.exe to play the game.
  • You can download the zip file with something like this:

    files:
    - mod_archive: https://url.of.zip.file
    
  • Since this is a mod for a different game, you can use requires: stalker-call-of-pripyat

  • The main section that you will need is:

    installer:
    - task:
      ...
    -task:
      ...
    

    where the tasks will be things like “copy these files”, “run this exe file”, etc.

If you register your mod as a new game at lutris.net and use the editor to write your install script, the reference guide for how to write an install script will be right there on the page to help you.


If all of this is too difficult and you just want to get the mod working with your own game, then the easy way is to just follow the instructions and run the exe files in your own wine prefix. If you get it working, then it would be nice to write an installer for someone else to use as well. :slightly_smiling_face:
