create a folder name it game patches and save to it.

create the folder by right clicking desktop and choose new folder. later move the folder to where you want.

remember to unzip the patch and it should auto load.

When you execute/run the download, the code will be installed in the game files to which it relates so it does not really matter where you save the downloaded patch file. As sunnystaines has intimated, it may all be in a Zip file, so if so, you will need to unzip it and then run the .exe file or setup file as applicable. There should be some instructions in a read me file perhaps.

If you always expect a response (or even a word of thanks) I'm afraid that you'll be sorely disappointed

maybe hes lived up to his name if youll excuse the puin.

Yes you are correct, but no harm in a hint now and again. I notice that it is becoming more common to not say thanks or confirm that the problem has been solved and also leave the thread unticked.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
