Applying a Patch
The mods hosted on this site are distributed in various patch formats. There's different formats for different platforms. For example, patches for Playstation games are distributed in .ppf format, so a patch file for a Playstation game usually looks like this: PatchName_v1.ppf. You can find a list of patching programs in our Patching Tools section. They all have fairly simple interfaces that allow you to choose which files you want to patch or which files you want to base your patch from.
