Patches and Updates

At Rocky Bytes we also have game patches and updates. These are files you can run in order to act as a complement or supplement for a particular game, or to serve as an update (for fixing bugs or errors in a game, updating the game to a more complete version, adding special characteristics or features, adopting new languages, etc.).

On one hand, there are patches and updates released by the game companies themselves to fix bugs or errors that have been detected in their games after launch. A good example of this is the update called GTA: Grand Theft Auto IV Patch 7: Title Update, released by Rockstar to fix certain bugs in the launched version of GTA IV. These may be called either updates or patches, although it is more correct to call them updates since they are produced by the company itself, or if called patches, this should specify that it is an official patch from the developer.

On the other hand, there are also independent programmers, not associated with the original game developer, who create patches for unlocking and adding features to a game. An example of this is the patch called GTA: San Andreas Downgrade Patch, which allows you to unlock the game so that certain aspects of it can be modified.

The executable file for a patch is usually accompanied by a .txt file that explains how the specific patch should be installed.
