[Release] CitraUpdater (And installer) WINDOWS ONLY

Hello fellow Citra users! I have been amazed by the progress of the Citra emulator over the last year, personally seeing support for SSB. However, I hate updating Citra. I didn’t update for a long time, because I am lazy and don’t want to go to the website, downloading the zip, unzipping it, and cleaning everything up. So I created this…
CitraUpdater!
CitraUpdater updates your Citra installation, or installs it if you don’t have it.
Download it from here: http://github.com/TermerMC/CitraUpdater/releases/latest/
It is very buggy, and likely to break, so please report any issues on the github page. Thanks, and I hope you like it!

Usage: Place the jarfile in the same director as Citra, or where you want to install Citra. Open the jarfile, when it asks you if you want to update, click ok. Then wait. After a while, it should show a popup that says that it’s finished. Profit.

Warning: When you open the jarfile, an option box should appear. If you don’t see it, ALT-TAB until you do. After you choose to update, the dialog will close until finished. Also, run it in the command line to see the log!

Interesting tool! Just so you know, we’ve been working on a brand new updater that is cross platform and will allow users to easily download, update, and switch between different installed versions. Just thought I’d let you know :slight_smile:

When is this updater’s planned release? Soon, I hope, because my updater just barely works. Just take a look at my code :smiley: I working on multiplatform support, but that may take a while, as this took me about six hours to make.

I briefly glanced over your code, haha.

The updater doesn’t have a release but the estimate is about a month, but don’t quote me on that.
