Patcher 1.0.0! Patches stuff!?!

Written by Arujei on . Posted in Applications, Latest, Patcher

Patcher 1.0.0 released! I haven’t been creative with my names as of late. 😐 or ever, but whatever. So this is for you if want to easily replace files in an application yet keep a back up of the files you change. And just as easily restore those changed files.

For example you have a different set of models for your favorite game to make your epic warrior look like something totally different.

So you manually copy files from your backup drive
E:\Games\AwesomeGame\patch
And toss them into
C:\Users\Public\Games\AwesomeGame

You play you have fun. A new patch fixing that pesky crash comes out. You don’t want to mess up the patch with your custom files so you restore from backup.
E:\Games\AwesomeGame\backup

Then you repeat the patch process.

Lots of copa pasta or draggy droppy. Well patcher when properly configured will do all that in a push of a button. Including only backing up the files you change saving you quite a bit of space.

Example config:
[Settings]
GameTitle=AwesomeGame
PatchPath=E:\Games\AwesomeGame\patch
BackupPath=E:\Games\AwesomeGame\backup
OriginPath=C:\Users\Public\Games\AwesomeGame
ExePath=C:\Users\Public\Games\AwesomeGame\AwesomeGame-Launcher.exe
Patched=0

That’s pretty much it. Hope someone finds this useful. I do ;).

Trackback from your site.
