This is actually very easy to do.

First you need to download this
http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Download

Once its done run the program.

Next go to your IT game folder and compress it into a Zipped file.

After that, go back to the program and under Compiler you will see a option that says

Installer based on Zip file.

Hit that, click open and click the game you just compressed.



Name your installer to whatever your IT game name is.

For Path of installer this lets you select where it will install to, for example you could install to;
$DESKTOP=Desktop
$PROGRAMFILES=Program files

Interface is how it'll look which really doesn't matter so moving on.

OutPutExe File is where the Test Exe will be after you compile the files.

Compression= To be honest, I have no clue what the difference is between the selections but, I usually use LZMA.

Once everything looks good hit Generate!

Bam you have a Installer!

Does the program make it possible to make a patcher?
Like, can it compare files to figure out which are newer so it lets you create an installer containing only those files?

It is possible through advanced scripts however I'm not that knowledgeable of this program to try that. The Patch file was just a random example I used.

Thanks for the downloads, both of you! x3

I have a question, though..
What site would be good for the website you need to have for the updater? (Like, what website would let the updater get the new updates..you know what I mean. XD)

Go to where the installer was put and upload it to Mediafire, Dropbox, Google Drive, or the like.
