What is the best esenthel tutorial on youtube or / and included to start with if I already have some knowledge of c++ and making games, eg a tutorial on how to make a full game in this engine?

When you compile the game to exe and release it to public, does the public user need anything extra on there machine, say for example they run windows 10, do I just send them the exe file of the game and it will run?

I can see that is in the documentation, now I just await an answer to my other question. Many thanks. If you are new as well and want to learn together, do you have discord?

Hi,
The basic tutorials are included in the engine/editor download.
The more advanced tutorials you can get from here:
http://www.esenthel.com/?id=store&cat=1

You don't need to have any programs installed in the OS to run EE based apps.

You can just distribute the folder that Esenthel Editor generates, just click "Build\Publish" in the Editor, and that's all you need.
Editor can be also configured to package entire game data in just 1 EXE file, so no other files needed at all.

Does it tell you how to package in one exe file in the documentation anywhere?

You mean blue, not purple?
You should create an "Application", not "Folder"

It will auto save when you build or you can ctrl + s to save at anytime.
A prompt cmd will pop if you exit to ask if you want to save
