Here is simple deal.(sorry for the delayed reply)
-this is my understanding from different posts that i have read on manual patching-Credits to original posts in Official forums
The game takes longer to update if you are doing it through regular updater.
Otherwise u can just download manual patches from
The recent patches are uploaded here 1 day after the official Update/maintenance
All you have to do after downloading is :
1.Put the patches in "Patches" Folder
2.Editing Version.dat (open in notepad)
it is the current game version, if u havent updated it,then it might show a lesser value eg.00000106 or 00000108 or 00000109
-check the version so that u can choose to download the succeeding patches
This is the code that needs to be edited
to the latest version of patch u have downloaded/placed in "patches" folder
After editing, exit n save.
Run updater, it will check the patch files n update the game. which is much faster
after the update is finished all patches will be automatically deleted from patches folder.
