Hi There, Just thought this would be the best place to post a Feature Request To The Developers, as the title says, auto updates would make things a hell of a lot easier, after all the builds are already hosted on the pcsx2 website so it wouldn't take much work to incorporate a feature that auto downloads the latest builds, any one agree with me?
The issue is sometimes we update the specs on the plugin and it breaks the plugins, so if you had an auto update on, its possible it could break the emulator for you (especially if you're using non standard version of say gsdx) then we get people whining on here that it doesnt work anymore ;p
also some games work better in older versions than newer ones, so they won't want to update.
yeah i thought of those problems too but The Feature could be toggled on and off and only known stable builds should be set for auto downloading, what do you think? the settings and configs could carry over to the updated build so you wouldn't have to keep configuring it.
The "stable" builds come so rarely that it would be a mostly unused feature...
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
well maybe you could press a "check for updates" button which will return a list of the most current builds and you can pick a build to download, it would still be a lot easier than going to the website, downloading a build, and copying your old mem card files to the new build.
hmmmm.... i never thought about UAC issues (i turn the thing off straight away as i hate it)
and i dont update as much as i like to mainly because it gets annoying having to delete old plugin files and exes and stuff so an update feature would make things simpler, also if this kind of thing is so useless then why does lots of software have this feature? (google chrome, opera, mixcraft, ect)
In pcsx2 case,you don't need to delete anything when you want to update from one pcsx2 rev to another...just overwrite.
Big differences that may require complete uninstall are mainly when new official version is released but if you use pcsx2 as portable,just deleting the inis folder files will revert pcsx2 and the plugins to the way it is when you start it for the first time.
