Updating game

Greetings,

Just saw the new update (0.2.5) and downloaded the full game so I would be at recent update (v0.2.5).  Is there a way to update without a full install? I don´t use the itch.io app which auto-updates your games, so I do it manually. That´s one of the reasons I buy games from Itch.io, so I don´t need apps like Steam and such.


Thanks, and keep up the great work!

All the best,

Hey Mike. I've been receiving many crash reports from older versions of the game, and I've been looking around for ways to create auto-updater inside the game, but I don't think it's feasible to do it, because it would take a significant development time and would imitate itch.io app (would require authentication to itch.io, some diff for the game files, etc.).
I was thinking about putting a check inside the game that will notify you if you're playing on the latest version on the main menu screen. Unfortunately, it still requires a full, manual download from the itch.io website without the itch client.

Hi Artur,


Thanks for your prompt reply.  No worries, I was just wondering, and I understand from your reply that it´s not a easy thing to do right now. I personally don´t mind a new download, just thought I would ask, just in case.  

The check Idea would be cool, or a automated e-mail to those who own the game. Something so we know there´s an update available.  I just happend to check in here and saw the update, otherwise I would have no Idea.

Cheers, and thanks again.

Mailing is a very good idea also, I've seen it's possible through itch. Thanks!
