Request: portable War2Combat 46 edition

The War2 Ru community hosts a "lite" version of War2Combat (now available only on the FTP server). Thank you.

Please consider to host the lite version as a ZIP file containing the War2Combat folder, rather than an installer.

This ZIP (portable app) version will be easier to install on Linux and Mac systems. Installers notoriously use lots of stuff that is not supported well in Wine/Linux/ReactOS/Mac/etc.

Thought about portable, though didn't think it would be too useful as required for some very specific situations.
Though you can install combat for windows and then just copy destination directory to any other computer (wine on linux and mac also). The only thing you should do: execute War2NoCD.reg (file added specifically to make it work as portable).

The "lite" version is actually extremely stripped down to be useful: lack of features, bad sound, etc. Doesn't make sense if you can afford to download the ~ 50MB standard version.

Got it, thank you. I have used those notes in my full Mac installation guide at https://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,6222.new.html#new
