This section will discribe the Original War patches. A patch marked as a "Full" is a patch which includes everything needed to update Original War from the vanilla(As in no prior patches installed) state or above(as in already has some patches installed) and a patch marked as "Patch" is one which will only update its own version range (as in 1.07.2 patch would work on 1.07 and 1.07.1) and the previous verson range (as in 1.07.2 would work on 1.06 or above).

Note that you should not install "Altar Patch 1" or "Altar Patch 2" as they are included with 1.06 and above. Its recommended that you first use a "Full" to update Original War to the latest version and then use "Patch" versions when new ones come out.
