Ask about problem release a patch
« on: July 19, 2020, 01:14:24 am »
I have made some patches, and I am excited to share it.  :woot!:

but some of the game patches I made require some special DLC (some have been edited and translated, but not all) for it to work.

So, I want to ask if I can share all that DLC with the game patch when I release it? Is it legal? Or should I share only the DLC files I edited?

Sorry, i'm still a noob.  :-\

If the DLC is still sold, then I'd say that's a pretty big problem.

Can't you make the patch so that people who have bought the DLC can apply it themselves?

Hello, Jorpho.

Thank you for responding.

I just checked the DLC on the store and it is still on sale.

I guess I'll just release my patch along with a few DLC files I've translated or I'll try to make an xdelta patch for them.

(although I'm not sure if this works, because each file DLC only has about 100-200kb, which is really inconvenient for people when patching it manual, I guess I will try making a batch file for it. Hope it will work.)

Btw, thank you for help!  :woot!:
