Re: Depot File for Patches installation

If you haven't yet downloaded the patches, I would select them all into a list on the patch website and choose the "download a script that will ftp the patches" option.

This script will let you get all the patches at once, and provide a script to create a depot for you. Just follow the instructions in the README files.
