THIS IS A WINDOWS BASED SYSTEM, DO NOT DOWNLOAD OR EXTRACT PATCHES TO A MAC COMPUTER AS DOING SO WILL BREAK THE PATCH FILES AND MAKE YOUR SYSTEM NOT FUNCTION

PLEASE FULLY READ THE RELEASE NOTES BELOW BEFORE APPLYING PATCHES TO YOUR SYSTEM. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS AS TO WHICH PATCH YOU SHOULD SELECT AS INSTALLING AN INCORRECT VERSION CAN CAUSE YOUR ARCADE TO STOP WORKING!

Below are the patches available along with their release date and patch notes, please not while we strive to make sure that each patch can be used by downloading the most recent version which would encompass all previous patches, it is best practice to download the patches one at a time in order to get you up to date. Each arcade leaves here with the most recent patch installed but there may be subtle differences, so please download and install all patches in order from the arcade purchase date, if updating. DO NOT APPLY PATCHES TO YOUR SYSTEM THAT ARE DATED BEFORE YOUR DELIVERY DATE OR YOUR ARCADE COULD STOP WORKING.

For example: If you purchased your arcade on September 15th 2023, download and install patch 1.4 then patch 1.5.
