Question about Patches

Recommended Posts

How do Patches work? Do they have an updated executable that replaces the old one or do they mess with the actual code of the game and then recompile it?

There are patching products out there can do a binary comparison between two packages and can produce a patch installation file.

Alternatively, you can perform the same yourself but with greater difficulty. E.g. comparing what installed files are different between releases of your software, only including those that have changed in your custom installer.
