HMG Patches procedure for updates

Post by Pablo César » Thu Mar 23, 2017 12:59 pm

  1. Previously to apply the patch, I used to make a copy of existing HMG version folder.
  2. Be sure you have WinRar app installed or any other which can uncompress RAR files.
  3. Make download of patch file pack and uncompress it in folder by clicking with right mouse button at Windows Explorer and choose "Extract to" <folder_name>. Folder_name it comes the same name of compressed file attached.
  4. Before start updating files, you attempt to see which file version was downloaded. Always its name is compoused by saying the number of version.
    You need to start by chronological order if you did not done any.
  5. Select all files and sub-folders thru Windows Explorer what it's cointained in that folder that was created by the "Extract to" that you done (item #3).
  6. After selected, right click of mouse a choose "COPY".
  7. Now you go the HMG folder where is installed (actually last and current version is at: \hmg.3.4.3) by clicking on the folder and paste it inside of it and update all files and folders. You can confirm the overwritting files/folders.
  8. After all files/folders been copied, you startup the BuildAllLib32.bat to rebuild libs.
That's all.
