  1. Go to the ”Settings” tab.

    which of these protocols you are using, if you do not know. Fill all fields related to the
    selected protocol.
  4. Fill in all the required fields for FTP / SFTP.
  5. Download base link (DBL) - base link, it is necessary for the client to work, your files
    will be downloaded by the client according to the following rule: DBL + ”Definition
    folder” (DF) + file name. For example, DBL = ”https://example.com/patches/” and
    DF = ”win”. Patcher Client will download the files for the current definition at the
