is it possible to patch your application? i want to update my program and not make the user have to download the whole exe file again, like an update?

thanks

I think the most professional gamemakers have a new improved whole version of their patched exe within their patches, and to say, that's why they resort to keeping each of the project files small and scatter the code to different places. I don't think you can change the code of a compiled exe (at least very easily)... However, if you use dll:s and different external data, the exe you'll have to download will be quite small. However it were, I'd probably resort to this replacing-the-exe method preferably coz of it's easiness.
