The SleepyHead beta testing team (specifically beta-tester AlanE) has created an automatic Windows installer for SleepyHead (an ".exe" file). This is something that members have been requesting for a long time now.
The SleepyHead Download Page has been updated with this new Windows Installer, here:
Nothing has changed with the program itself. This is still JediMark's 0.9.8-1-T3-testing version for Windows. So if you already have version 0.9.8-1-T3-testing installed, you don't need to update using this Windows Installer.
1. The Windows Installer is a large file (twice the size of the zip files at about 81.4 MB) because it includes both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of SleepyHead.
2. The installer automatically checks your computer's operating system to see if it's either a 32 or 64-bit system, and then automatically installs either a 32 or 64 bit copy of SleepyHead on your computer.
3. The installer includes shortcuts to both the OpenGL and BrokenGL versions in the Windows Start Menu, but places a shortcut on your desktop to the default OpenGL version (which is the preferred option). After the installation, I suggest trying the OpenGL version and if it doesn't work for you, simply use the BrokenGL version that is linked in the Windows Start Menu.
4. The old Windows compressed zip installation files also remain on the download page as an alternative installation option for those who wish to manually install SleepyHead.
Many thanks to the SleepyHead beta testing team for all their efforts on this! The installer works amazingly well and AlanE really put a lot of work into making it seamless and easy to install SleepyHead with the least amount of problems for all Windows platforms. Thanks Alan!!
I've asked Alan to post a reply following this post to further explain the installation process and other things.
