The latest release is more robust. It makes an internal backup in memory and when something goes wrong, chances are good it reverts to the state before the patcher was started.
It now creates a "helper" folder in the SOR4Pacther folder for backup files and settings. Previously it was all saved in the LocalAppdata folder of SOR 4 Explorer. This helps to delete the application. If you delete the SOR4Patcher folder everything should be gone. No secret folder anywhere else.
Also the commandline "ignore" was added. Usage is described in readme.txt.
I hope this version runs good. If you have any problems please let me know. The main reasons for this update are:
* It used the AppData/SOR 4 Explorer folder which should not, but maybe could cause problems with the usage of the SOR4 Explorer or Patcher.
* When something goes wrong during the patching process, it leaved the gamefiles in a corrupted state. The new version makes a backup in memory before it starts patching and if some error happens, it reverts the game files to the state, before patching. Maybe there are still unhandled errors, but it should work better now.
* Also the patcher checks now if the files it writes to are writable. For example. if you open the SOR4 Explorer and try to run the SOR4Patcher, it does not work because the Explorer blocks the files. This is now checked before patching.
Edit: I am not sure about the "no registry" thing, because maybe the SOR4 Explorer Code I used make some registry stuff.

Patches Sprites automatically into Streets Of Rage 4
This console application patches Sprites into Streets Of Rage 4.
It is based on the SOR4Explorer from José Luis Cebrián Pagüe and I have only tested it with the blood patch. So I hope it will not be buggy.
If something went wrong you can try to restore the original textures with the "restore" commandline parameter. But this will reset everything to the original content. Just test it out before you publish.
