Require update before launching

Is there a way to have a checkbox or something that would require the user to update before launching?

In my case I'd like to create a networked game, and if you don't have the latest version your packets are likely to be broken. Sure I can do another check when they launch the game to see if it's the correct version, but that seems like an extra step that could be avoided.


This type of check would only be possible on the app, but many people download games outside the app. I think doing an HTTP request to check the version in your game is the best solution. If you're using butler then we have an API endpoint where you can ask our servers what the most recent version pushed is.

I do have the API endpoint. I will certainly do both since you can download directly. However, it would be nice if we could require it in the app to save a step for folks that use the app. Feel free to close this, just thought I'd check if it's available, and recommend it if not.
