Please use a mirror site in the meantime.

    My apologies for incorrectly correcting Rich from Gone Gold that his update for Golden Tee Golf wasn't an update at all. I must have been checking ITS Games ftp server a few hours before they put the patch online. Until then there were only a few beta upgrades left on the server...
    I read over at Wargames Central Computer that MGM has recalled the first patch for the game because it will somehow become corrupted during download. Since they already shipped the first few copies of the game infected with a virus (and they weren't the first big company doing that) this might just be another mistake on their part. Therefore i will leave the patch here until i get a firsthand report that the new wargames.exe is indeed corrupt.
    Back to patches news:
  • added Peter Jacobsen's Golden Tee Golf version 1.0102 393K
  • added Shanghai Dynasty version 1.21 9,613K
  • added Steel Panthers Scenario disk #2 El Guettar scenario fix 38K

    Not many patches today, but quite some interesting other news.
    First the letter from PC Gamesworld arrived yesterday and they promised to resolve the situation soon.
    I've got my own subdomain for free from dlh.net . Now you can reach me under patches.dlh.net as well. Right now this is only a referrer which still links to my site at Dresden, but if suddenly someone decides to run ads on my site I will move the whole site over there. We will have the most recent files on their server too, so in case of a crowded server here you should be able to get it there.
    I've got a cold, I wonder how this was possible with almost 30 degrees celsius outside every day :(
    Back to patches news:
  • added Banzai Bug version 1.01 631K

  • This patch deals with problems for people with S3 Virge, Virge VX or ATI 3D Rage II based cards.

  • added The Race to Galamax Cyrix fix 86K

  • changes august, 18th

    Due to obvious disinterest (3 hits a day isn't very much compared to 500-600 here) i am about to shut down the US mirror website. The ftp site at cdrom.com will remain but i wont update the webpages there anymore and if traffic doesn't pick up it will be gone after the summer.

    More disturbing to myself though was another thing i discovered while browsing the net for interesting sites with patches news. When i was visiting PC Gamesworld i thought the descriptions they had for their patches looked very familiar. Upon further browsing through their list it became obvious that they just copied the content of my site - all file descriptions are the ones i wrote and the only places they point their ftp links to are here at Dresden and my mirror at cdrom.com . There was no mention on their site where they got this list from and they made it look like it was their own work. I already sent them a letter asking them to remove this archive immediately, i dont like it when others steal my work.

    To make it clear once and for all: I don't mind if other fanpages use my archive as long as they place a link to my site or if searchengines like Gameguru (a very valuable source to search for patches or reviews, i might add) link to my files as long as they list my site too, but i don't want to see my work ripped off from companies to raise money with that content. The only commercial site which has the permission to use my archive is Games Domain and nobody else unless they pay for this service! I spend so much time with maintaining this site i certainly don't want this being commercially exploited without ever seeing much more than a raise in our servers traffic.

    Please send your letters to [email protected] and let them know what you think.
    Back to patches news:

  • added Final Fantasy VII Cyrix fix 785K

  • This patch should fix problems users with a Cyrix CPU may have (6x86 series). It also comes with a new video codec (the one i was reporting about a few days earlier) and if you should still experience problems with animations, you should get the Intel Indeo v5 video codec from Intel's website (www.intel.com).

  • added The Golf Pro version 1.02 532K

  • changes august, 16th

  • added WarGames update 1 605K

  • This patch replaces your wargames.exe . I have no idea what it fixes and it doesn't seem to be a fix for the reported virus infection of the first few copies of WarGames.


    changes august, 15th

    The good news is: Games Domain is back on track, the bad news is: their US server (and i suppose quite a few just enter www.gamesdomain.com to connect to it) is NOT. But i think this will be sorted out in a few days and is only a result of a lag in the process of the mirrors syncing with their original site.
    Yesterdays big news was certainly Starcraft 1.02, but unless you are a battle.net player there is currently no chance for you to get the update. It looks like Blizzard may put it out to the general public by tomorrow.
    So in the meantime look if any of the other new patches is of any use for you. I will add a few new demos tomorrow and remove the outdated ones.

  • added Chessmaster 5500 version 1.1 656K
  • added Civil War Generals II version 1.04 for Windows95 1,827K

  • This seems to be a newer build than the previously added 1.04 patch. There was no documentation on Sierra's site but the patches are definitely different.
  • added Entrepreneur version 1.3 for Windows 2,729K
  • added Entrepreneur version 1.3 for OS/2 3,227K
  • added Final Fantasy VII new video codec(?) 740K

  • This patch comes with no documentation , but the filename implies its a beta #1 patch for FF7. From the text in the included EULA i could at least guess what it is: it's an updated or improved video codec for people who have had trouble watching the in-game animations (which were either choppy, slow or anything else which might have been disturbing. Until i can find proof to my guess it won't be included in the general "database".

  • added High Heat Baseball 1999 version 1.4 823K
  • added M.A.X. II version 1.3 for french release 3,705K

  • added Special Operations AWAL to version 1.3 upgrade for software renderer 777K
  • added StarCraft version 1.02 1,743K

  • Version 1.02 adds a few game balancing changes and a lot of Battle.net and multiplayer fixes. Read the whole list.
    Blizzard will offer an executable autoupdater in a few days, but who needs it anyway...

  • added Tex Murphy: Overseer version 1.04 1,020K

  • Version 1.04 mainly addresses problems with DVD drives , a detailed list can be found here.

  • added The Operational Art of War, Volume I version 1.03 2,338K
  • added Vigilance on Talos V for OS/2 fix #3 303K
  • Just a quick note, but the archive now contains over1,700 patches


    changes august, 12th

    No new patches will be added for a few days. You may have noticied it, Games Domain (which is together with cdrom.com my main mirror site) has had a lot of problems with correct mirroring of my site after the last reorganisation of our ftp server. I have send them new scripts and am awaiting the next mirror logs to see if they have improved or fixed the situation (from what i can tell, they are missing some 500-1000 files right now). I will also run a comparison script on thursday to check if the sites are back in sync again and add new files afterwards. There haven't been many new patches though, apart from High Heat Baseball 1.4 and some new Spec Ops patches. There are still some patches forthcoming, like Starcraft 1.02, Diablo 1.06 (and more) but i also would like to see Industry Giant 1.1 or Rebellion 1.02 (these two certainly could need some patches). Until then check Gone Gold, Rich got reports on all the new patches for this week - earlier than 3dfxmania & Avault, for those who care about such things and i will help him update his page with new patches news in the time additions here are on hold.

    A note to those who are upset about the sloppy updating of my US page: I am sorry that updating this page is going so slow, but there are several factors which prevent me from doing it fast and more importantly, automatically.
    a) i have to wait for my mirror sites to report a successful mirroring before i am going to update that page too

    If you receive strange Javascript errors when connecting to me through dlh.net/patches/, simply ignore them. They are caused by my webcounters which block this kind of "cheating" for hits. I will look for a way around this. Updates to the US mirror are on hold until i could resolve this and fix some last glitches i found while checking my site.

    changes june, 16th

    New E-Mail address: [email protected]
    From now on e-mail me at this address with enquiries about game patches or
    in case you have problems downloading the latest DLH from our ftp site. Oh, you
    didn't know what DLH is?
    Here is a quote from DLH's FAQ:
     The DIRTY LITTLE HELPER (DLH) is a collection of cheats for PC
     games - it contains notes how a game might be modified directly (by
     entering a secret code) or indirectly (by editing program files).
     Additionally we include solutions, editors and trainers for games.
    
    I'll have their banner up on the frontpage and if requested will announce new versions here, but in the meantime just visit dlh.net. If someone could be so nice and test if dlh.net/patches leads him to my site. It is appreciated. It works fine for me but i got an email that it reports some strange Javascript error.

    I'm back from a quick vacation at my familys place. Lying in the sun, getting a tan and being fed by a loving mother certainly has its advantages sometimes. :)

    As i noticied while checking my overflowing emailbox after one week of absence i noticied that i went down to #48 on Internet Homepages Top 100 . This might be related to the fact that more and more commercial sites keep being added to Top Homepages list instead of Top Website but maybe also due to the fact that i had Quake II 3.15 not listed on my site in time... ;)

    A note about the patches for Amiga games. Since the Amiga was at its peak time a diskette based system, updates were not simply zipped up replacement files but because of copyprotection on diskettes and several other reasons usually sent out in form of replacement diskettes. To make them available to nowadays "download community" people created diskimaging programms. The most common one for Amiga (well, which i can remember) is Diskmasher or short DMS. To rebuild diskettes out of .dms files you'll need a copy of DMS which you can get from Aminet or any of its mirrors.

    Well, cdrom.com is doing some security & hardware fixes to their server, so my mirror script to get their mirror back on track broke several times over the weekend and still is not done. Since i have only a vague guess how long it will take, i'll update my homesite anyway. I was holding off to get both servers in sync, but - oh well...

    I'm in the process of updating my cdrom.com area again after eliminating the last few remaining quirks (hopefully) and should have it ready by weeks end.
    A big THANK YOU goes out today to the following people:
    Jessika Jansen from Ikarion Software for sending me Demonworld & Demonworld Bonus CD
    George Huof from New World Computing for sending me Heroes of Might & Magic II and Might & Magic VI
    Frans P. de Vries from Gamers.org for reporting sooooooooooooooooooo many new patches to me during the last few months
    Jukka O. Kauppinen from MikroBITTI for various helpings and being a nice chap in general

    The following ad has been added both as a thank-you to Ikarion and as a way to notify people that registering software can have some big advantages over just buying it - in some cases: (The following is only for german readers and therefore being kept in german...)

    Da es vielleicht einigen Leuten entgangen sein duerfte, dass diese Aktion existiert, will ich dies hier kurz posten.

    Ikarion Software verschickt an registrierte Kunden des Spiels "Demonworld" kostenlos eine Bonus-CD.
    Diese enthaelt neben 14 neuen Isthak Level und der neuesten Version des Originalspiels auch noch einige andere erwaehnenswerte Features:
    * alle Level jetzt auch in HiColour (65,536 Farben statt "mueder" 256)
    * Unterstuetzung von 3DFX Karten im 2D-Modus (anwaehlbar sind 800x600 in Hi-Colour mit 3DFX Support)
    * Unterstuetzung von MMX Prozessoren

    Und wer es nicht wusste, auch fuer Z von den Bitmap Brothers gibt es fuer registrierte Kunden eine Bonus-CD.

    Now back to listing new patches.

  • added Aide de Camp II version 2.04 1,729K
  • added Air Warrior III version 3.02 4,736K

  • Note that this is not the same patch reported by some sites as Air Warrior III version 1.02 . They reported an upgraded version of the online game Air Warrior III while this is a patch for the standalone version as well.

  • added Big Game Hunter version 1.22 785K
  • re-added Carmageddon final beta of 3DFX upgrade 645K

  • There was a note on Carmageddon.com that their final patch wasn't from Stainless Steel nor SCi, but some unknown 3rd party. So just in case Stainless decides to do a final patch i've included this beta patch again.

    As you may have noticied, i haven't updated my US mirror page for almost a month and neither my mirror site at cdrom.com This is because i'm still looking through my archives and reorganize them a bit before i will restart the US mirror again. I just need a safe backup in case i break something on my local drive. Don't worry, it'll be fixed soon.
    On not-so-related news Netscape 4.05 is a disappointment. I'm running it for a day now and it has already crashed twice, which is about the same stability i experienced with earlier versions...

    Hey, it's my little sisters birthday so i'll be gone over the weekend to celebrate with the family. Too bad they don't like computers and gaming as much as i do...

  • added F1 Racing Simulation version 1.08 for Voodoo cards 1,092K
  • added Lords of Magic version 2.00 6,236K

  • For those who wondered what happened to v1.04 - it got renamed to 2.0 since it's such a major patch over v1.0 .

    There are further news about Spec Ops 1.3 which in fact is only for the demo version, so i won't include it, AirWarrior III 3.02 which is only for Kesmai's pay-online version of the game, so it too doesn't deserve to be here and finally Battlecruiser 3000Ad v1.05E for 3DFX which i am not allowed to host. I made links for each of these patches to hosts which provide them.

    The update for F1 Racing Simulation to 1.08 which i've got is from Operation 3DFX which doesn't offer the Direct3D patch as well. Strangely enough it wasn't even on Ubisoft's french site, so if you need 1.07 since 1.08 turns out to be an incompatible beta, i kept version 1.07 for Voodoo locally as well.

    Phew - my mirror script finally went through after i ran out of diskspace locally twice. I will have some changes in the next few days to the filestructure to free up some space since a partition on the drive can only hold 2GB and this one is almost full 100% . Also i found a new german/english counter at www.better-counter.com to which i have to adapt my pages yet. So stay tuned...


    changes march, 21st

    The mirror is making slow but steady progress and i hope to have it finished by monday. I also won an award today and got nominated Setoff Site Of The Day Award, in the GAMES category, from http://www.setoff.com .

    The addition of new patches is on hold until i have finished mirroring my archive on cdrom.com to my local drive. I may announce new patches here, but they won't be added to the database until i've synced both archives, which might take a couple of days more.


    changes march, 17th

    Since my own counter has been resetting itself countless times and i'm tired of fixing it manually i'm now using WebTracker as my official hitcounter. The other counters will remain on the link page since they give me much more detailed information about who visits my site and where they came from. In other news i'm right now busy mirroring back the site contents from Walnut Creek CDROM to our own local server. But don't expect much before end of the week...

    changes february, 28th

    February goes out with a BANG. Activision set a new record with their free release of their Interstate 76 to Interstate 76 Gold upgrade. Depending on whether you need a 3D accelerated or normal version of this patch, you are going to download 80MB or 70MB - and it won't even work with Voodoo 2 (yet). Since it'll probably take me another 5 hours to upload all files to cdrom.com and i want to go to bed (it's already past 9 A.M. here...) i'll offer them on our local drive for now.

  • added Armor Command version 1.01 14,824K
  • added F/A-18 Korea upgrade 1.01 to 1.02 4,159K

  • added Quake II CTF addon 1.0 6,476K

  • changes february, 26th

    The drive is here - i'm holding it (literally) in my hands. We've still to discuss the new setup and if we can host anything else beside a german ftp mirror for Games Domain (don't bug them - i'll announce it here once it has been officially created). If anyone could get me in contact with a C-64, CPC, Spectrum or Atari XL site, it's very much appreaciated.

      - Addition: Ability to play network games with a "peer to peer" packet transfer model.
      - Fix:      Force Feedback chugging.

    changes february, 23rd

    The biggest news today might be that the days of my exile from Dresden are almost over. The replacement drive was sent to me last week and should arrive today. If everything goes according to plan we'll have our german site back in operation by weeks end. Of course, after having to wait 6 months for Seagate to bother sending a replacement, i'm a bit skeptical after all...
    So if you see my US mirror in a new outfit, it means my drive is back in operation. Until then it stays in its old custome.

    I'm going to rebuild my links section in the near future and plan on adding a few more sites. If you have any sites you wish to be linked here, send me URL and a small logo in GIF/JPEG format. The emphasis should be on patches related sites, so anything from sites which offers game updates for download (e.g. Adrenaline Vault) to sites which host custom made patches (e.g. Tim Tschirner's NBA Live page) to sites like carmageddon.com (Hi Jon!) to hardware companies for 2D/3D cards, joysticks and maybe soundcards anything is possible. I plan on having about 50 links of which around 20 sites are already from my own bookmarks list (means : i'm using them regularly in my search for updates AFTER browsing game company sites), so get your suggestions in quickly to [email protected].

  • added Carmageddon 3DFX upgrade 645K

  • This patch adds support for Voodoo & Voodoo Rush (and will supposedly only work for the DOS version). It might even be usuable for a german/australian or any other crippled version, since it's basically a replacement of carmav.exe

  • added Civil War Generals II version 1.03 1792K

  • There is mention about Windows 3.1 support in this patch as well as for Windows 95, but due to Sierra's naming scheme and since 1.02 also came in separate packs for 3.1 and 95, i believe a special patch for Windows 3.1 is forthcoming.

      Joke of the week: copy all of your Lands of Lore II files into one dir (subdirs preserved, of course) of your choice on your harddrive, change to that dir once you are done and run the programm like this: lol2.exe -lolcd . (the dot will tell the programm to check for files in the current directory). Some programmers really have some big drives to play with... :)
      I don't take any responsibility if this will work, it was told to me by a friend who likes to fiddle around with possible game options and i don't own LoL2 myself.

      As some of you might have noticied i've found a new webcounter to play which so far seems to offer everything I always wanted to see in a webcounter/tracker except for tracking every single page of a site. The only disadvantage seems to be that it runs a rather big JAVA script on my machine every time a user accesses my page, so i have to watch if this causes any degration in performance on our webserver. But otherwise eXTReMe digital is a very good tracker, though it lacks a rating of some kind.

      I fixed my US mirrorpage today. Seems the transistion wasn't as smoothly as expected and i forgot to copy some new files which linked everything together. My apologies to you.
      I'll be mostly gone for the next six weeks with updates usually occuring during weekends to prepare myself for my semi-diploma . See you in late february...

    • A new beta patch for Seven Kingdoms is out at 7k.gamestats.com
      Since it is an internal beta patch and still in development i decided not to include it in my archives yet. Go to the discussion board and follow the New 7K.exe: "Ship Settle" - Fixed! thread. The patch is about 600k in size and fixes a crashing bug for Cyrix processors plus fixes the "Ship settle" bug and maybe a few others which aren't documented yet.
      German users might use our ftp site, the patch is available at ftp://ftp.inf.tu-dresden.de/pub/incoming/ms-dos/games/patches/7k_4.zip
      Please use it only if your US link is very slow, the website put up by Gamestats certainly deserves support.
