Installing a Patch
The patching process creates a pak file in
[ProjectName]\Saved\StagedBuilds[PlatformName][ProjectName]\Content\Paks. This pak file is the patch that should be distributed to users.
For example, on Windows, you would create an installer to copy that pak file into the user's
[ProjectName]\Releases[VersionNumber][PlatformName] folder, next to the original
content pak file.
The patch pak file will automatically be mounted when it is located on the device in any of the pak search directories set in
To prioritize patches, the mounting system uses a
_p at the end of the filename to determine that it gets priority over other pak files. It can be renamed, but you need to include the
_p.pak at the end of the file name.
If you build two patches from the same release version, they are both complete patches, so while installing the second patch, you should also remove the first.
