I have made a tool for warlight map makers but it is a .exe file and I'm not sure what the safest way of sharing the file is. I tried google drive before but its a pain.


It has three modes:
1) Makes random fictional territory/bonus names of a length you can set.
2) The above but adds "BonusLink_" on the front.
3) Generates a unique ID for territories, including the "Territory_" bit.

For all outputs, you click the red bar and it will make the phrase and select it for you so you just do one click + ctrl+c overall.

There is also a log for past outputs.

Have you tried .zip/.gz/.tar/etc.? You should be able to just zip the file (or a folder that contains it) and share that since it won't be executable then.

You should share the source code, not the exe. Exes are dangerous since users can't be sure it isn't doing bad things, like stealing their passwords or installing malware.

Its written in VB.net and I don't expect many people are able to quickly compile it. I put it in a zip file if that makes any difference.
I'll share the code as a text file anyway.

Fizzer, I have searched online for how to make people not be scared of it, and the only thing i can do is pay over a hundred dollars a year for a proper certificate from a 'trust provider' but I don't really want to do that nor do I know how to do it.

I've downloaded it, and it doesn't seem to cause my computer any problems. I don't think there's any malware on it.

Looking at the code, I'll assume that NudStuff is some sort of numeric control, txtOutput is a button, and lstOutputs is a list box?

Well done. I see a basic name generator.

So, how does it put the territory names onto your map? Does the user have to do it manually? (I did not download this file, so I'm sorry if there's an obvious answer.)

NudStuff is a Numeric Up or Down thing, txtOutput is a textbox which has an on-click event. lstOutputs is a list box.
the user selects the outputs manually by clicking the textbox and pressing ctrl+c as it selects the contents automatically
