Check for updates or auto updates for nightly and stable builds?

citra and dolphin recently implemented these features to have a check for updates option  or auto update to the latest version.  can this be done for desmume?

Speaking of builds is it possible to have an x64 and mac  desmume autobuilds instead of just x86?  eliminating having to manually update the site with new builds?

yeah x64 allows higher than x6 resolution for some reason.  x86 wont work above x6

define "allow". does the x86 build crash when you try it?

yes setting to x7 causes the program to stop working and close. so highest is x6 for x86.  x64 doesn't have this problem

easier solution, I just committed a thingy to make more memory available so you should be able to get up to x8

ok thanks for fixing that can it be pushed to x16 or does the 4gb limit not allow that?. 

also that wasn't really relevant to the request of having a check for updates option added.  can that be done?

It can't be pushed to x16.
Memory required = (256*5*scale+8)*(192*2*5*scale+8)*4 -> 2.4GB for x16. You can't allocate that much memory in a 32bit process.
I have no interest in adding update options.

Is there a reason why adding more memory support to the x86 build is easier than just adding the x64 version to the Appveyor buildbot? Would it cost more money or greatly slow down the compile time or something?
