MultiPatch patching tool
MultiPatch is an all-in-one file patching solution. With this one program, you can apply IPS, UPS, PPF, XDelta, BSDiff, or BPS patches to files. You can also create IPS, UPS, XDelta, BSDiff or BPS patches. Everything is contained in one application, it is not a front-end and thus does not need to rely on external tools to accomplish the job. This program is a universal binary for any Mac running Mac OS X 10.7 or later.
1. Run the application.
2. Select a patch file.
3. Select the file you want to patch.
4. Choose where to save the patched file.
5. Click Apply Patch.
If nothing goes wrong, the patch will be applied and you'll get a message telling you that patching is complete. Otherwise you'll get an error that may explain what went wrong.
Supported patch formats are automatically detected based on the file extension of the patch. At this time, please ensure the patches you wish to use have the proper extension.
XDelta: .delta; .dat
BSDiff: .bdf; .bsdiff
MultiPatch can also create patches in all supported patching formats except PPF. Click the "Create Patch" button in the corner of the window to switch to patch creation mode. Usage for that is similar to applying a patch. The format of the patch to create is selected from a drop-down in the save dialog. BPS Patch creation offers two different options, Linear and Delta. Linear BPS patches are larger, but can be created very quickly and require very little memory to create. Delta BPS patches are usually smaller than Linear patches, but take longer and require more memory to create. The time and memory required to create a BPS delta patch depends on the size of the original and modified files.
What's New in Version 1.5:
- Fixed IPS patch creation for 64-bit builds.
- Modernized the code, cleaning up leftovers from when 10.4 was still supported.
- Build is now signed.
