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 if it is located in any of the .pak search directories set for your device 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. Remove the first patch before installing the second patch.
