Hello! I have come to announce a tool I am using to make the use of Butler much easier! Introducing Easy Butler:

 

This tool allows you to run Butler without having to go through the Command Prompt in Windows. It is compatible with Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 and (if you are using Wine) Linux and Mac. This tool allows you to publish to most platforms, and it does not need any extra downloads. To use it, first you will need to login, to do that click the Login Button.

After that you should update butler to the latest version, to do that click the "Update" button at the top of the screen, or click "Butler" then click "Update", not "Update Game", next you will need to fill in some information. 

Here is a example of what it should look like filled in:


Once your information is filled in, you can click "Update" on the bottom right hand corner to push your game update.


Once you do that, a window will appear, and it will start pushing your game update! And it will do it to the information you filled in, so if you want it to be pushed for macs, like shown above, it will be!

Easy Butler is a free tool, and you can download it here: https://thecrafters001.itch.io/easybutler

Have Questions? Feel free to ask them!

is it just a shell that runs a batch script?

Can you explain what you mean by that?

If you think it is a batch script, I assure you, that it is more than just that. I coded this manually in VisualBasic using the .NET Framework. And I have the source code publicly avaliable under the GNU GPL V3.0 license. That means anyone can expand on it, and distribute it as they like. If you would like to make your own, or expand on it by going to the GitHub repository.

thx

Looks great and thanks for sharing - we started using Butler on our last project and wondered if a GUI rather than command line solution was available... now it is! :) We'll give it a try on our next update for sure!

You are quite welcome! If you ever have any questions, feel free to ask!

when i click update the for the game to upload a window shows up for a second then nothing what am i going wrong thanks 

What variant of Easy Butler are you using (Console or GUI)

I downloaded the easy butler setup on itch.io not sure what one that is

Well, there are a couple of solutions.

If you are using the graphical version, which looks something likes this.

You would need to click Login before updating.

After that, it may work.

The console version works the same. Only, there is no GUI.
