Stellar ~ RetroArch Nightly Updater

@wyzrd That's perfect!

To make a plugin all you need to do is start a library project and reference LaunchBox's Metadata\Unbroken.LaunchBox.Plugins.dll library.  There's a few interfaces in the Unbroken.LaunchBox.Plugins namespace that you can implement that will be automatically detected.  Though, I feel like people are putting too many things into plugins that work better as side programs; things you want to do when LB does certain actions or displaying custom information in LB/BB is of course best done via plugins.  Check the plugin API docs here.

it still will be a side program..didn't I read on the discord that you made some code that allows people to add programs/plugins to the menu in tools 

@Nielk1

that's all that would be needed really

@massatomic I made a plugin that, if another plugin is set up for it, will clean up their place in the menu bar.  I figure if anyone has a good feature request I can throw that in there too.  It's really simple right now and technically other plugins could do this work themselves but I figured a passive API to do it would be better.

Small bug fix.

When updating Cores, the Update button caused crash if the List was empty.

This error was caused from the last version after many changes were made.

 

New Version 0.8.1

Update 0.8.2

  • Optimized Code
  • Added "Upgrade" menu option.
    Use this if updating to a new milestone version, such as 1.5 to 1.6. It will update all files, such as overlays and shaders.
    It excludes extracting and overwriting your configs, but you should backup to be safe.
  • RetroArch & RA+Cores menu options only update the exe's. Use these options when doing everyday small updates.

@orac31 I believe that is why the redist was added as a option.

Update v0.80 Beta

https://stellarupdater.github.io

Redist option added to the Download menu.

If RetroArch has errors starting after update, run that option to install the latest Redistributables.

Cool, yeah just grab the redist as well if that happens again, sometimes they add .dll's and if you are just updating retroarch it won't instal them automatically.
