    Where is the best free sit for game patches. I am looking for Deus Ex, WarCraft3, Q3A, Total Annihilation and Max payne.

    Should I just google each one seperately, or is there a good site for all of them?

    Anakist what do you mean by game patches ?
    updating the game to resolve issues ?
    or to circumvent the need for a CD ?

    Don Fudleone the link you provided to GCW is a bit of a gray area regarding forum rules as it alters the original format of a game

    I'll leave the link there for now until I get some feedback from the forum team

    ok - soz - but - they do have a perfectly legal disclaimer.

    it is upto the user to cross the line and participate in the illegal activities.

    but i would inderstand if you took it down.

    I meant to update the game re: bugs and things like that. Latest versions.

    AFAIK you "crack" a game for no CD, not patch it. That is my understanding anyway, but thanks for the link.

    3dGamers.com is also an excellent choice. The site is devoted to just demos and patches, and you always get a free, fast download.

    You can always look on the official sites for the game. Some just link to fileplanet or another site but the links are there and convienient to find.

    Not quite. A patch in most peoples understanding is an official release desgined to upgrade your game - solving known issues/bugs, inlcuding new game types and doing a whole host of other perfectly legal stuff.

    E.G. UT2K3 has so many official patches I can't remember what's current and they're all from EPIC.
