How to use (or better: how you can use)
  • 1. Run DSG in Developer Mode -> Go to "Game 1" tab -> Apply Patch XD3: ON -> Compress the game
  • 2. Create patch files for all files which have changed
  • - personaly I use ISXPM for this to create diff files, but you can also use the "Xdelta3 GUI" in TOOLS folder.
  • 3. Compress the diff files with FA, 7Z or RAR while keeping the folder structure. Add the archive to records.ini and change the Delta record to last number (example: [Record1] = Main archive, [Record2] = patch archive, [Record3] = Delta)
  • - Keeping the folder structure is important. Make sure old files and diff files are in the same folder after extracting.
  • 4. Install with DSG -> Tools -> Unpacker. DSG will patch the files after extracting automatically.

This way is only sensible if you don't want to compress a game again after a patch came out.

That way I was doing in my tests months ago and it worked great. However, there could be a possible easier solution for all this

You must use XDelta3 with the parameters "-S djw -vfs" for ISDone.dll to apply the patch without errors.
There is an example in "Resources\TOOLS\XDelta3 Patch Maker"

P.S: In the latest versions of DSG it is no longer necessary to change anything in Records.ini.

It is only necessary to enable the XDelta patch, keep the "Create mask patch" option checked and select a threshold percentage (trackbar) so that the position of the installer's progress bar is calculated when starting apply the path.

Dear KaktoR & Cesar82,
Can you please post pictures of the settings for XDelta & ISXPM as I can't get my patch to work properly with DSG and my installer.
Thank you in advance
