Unlike ROMs, PC games might not all use the same formats and file types. As such, there is no single jack-of-all-trades method of patching games. ROMs are a different story; they are made of just a single file, and formats such as IPS and NINJA are available to make things super-easy. The changes made when hacking or translating a PC game, however, usually apply to multiple files.
In this document, you will learn how to create patches for individual files, then write a simple script to compile them into a single easy-to-use program.
