Updated: Dec. 10th 2003
This is a demonstration af the autorun/snapshot feature mentioned above:

theatre_europe.exe is a self-extracting zip file that 'installs' the files arnold.exe and theatre europe.sna, and creates an icon (link) on your desktop. When you click on the icon, Arnold launches straight into the game Theatre Europe. Top that!

Here FreeExtractor (tweaked a bit) and UPX are utilized.
