How do I install a pirated update to a pirated game? [SOLVED]

Post by HamPlanet on Sun 01 Oct 2017, 20:37


I downloaded a pirated copy of Resident Evil 7 off The Pirate Bay which worked perfectly. I then downloaded a copy of the first DLC (Banned Footage vol. 1) and all i had to do was open an .ini file, change a 0 to a 1 in one of the lines of text and then simply copy the DLC folder to the installation folder and that worked just fine too.
 
However for the last few days i've been trying everything i know to get the second load of DLC (Banned Footage vol. 2) working and finally came across a verified source that confirmed CPY had just recently released an Update that includes Banned Footage vol. 2. I've just now finished downloading it... BUT... this is where i need help cause i'm not sure exactly what i'm supposed to do here.
 
I'll include the links to 2 screenshots (because for some reason it won't let me attach any files) - first is the installation folder as it was all this time working just fine... and the second is the Update folder that i just now finally finished downloading. As you can see the Update folder has an installation file and when i double-clicked it it came up with the exact same install screen that came up when i installed the main game to begin with.
 

What exactly am i supposed to do? Do i delete all the stuff i currently have in the installation folder and install the Update files to there instead... or do i leave everything as it is and simply copy the Update installation over them... what do i do exactly?

Instalation folder - http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif?sort=3&o=1

Update folder - http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif?sort=3&o=0

//EDIT

So i can't post links either huh?

Hello,

Usually you leave your current installation as is, and then copy/paste the updated files over them. Or, if there is an automated installer, just select the installation location of the game, and let the installer work.

As for posting screenshots, the FAQ (under IV. posting issues) has a tutorial for uploading and inserting screenshots in your messages.

If nothing else works, wait it out a bit, and then see if the uploader releases a new version of the game (base game + DLC + latest patch). In order to use that though, you should uninstall your existing game though.

Good luck!

Note that we don't generally delete these threads (unless in case of spam or duplicate discussions). Either way, have fun with the game! problem solved, topic closed.
