How to use unofficial patch with Steam version

#1AquacelloPosted 10/28/2011 3:16:10 PM
So I just bought this on Steam and I am downloading the unofficial patch 7.8, and I was wondering if there is a certain method you have to use to update the game or if you can just run the patch and it will automatically install to the right place.

This shouldn't happen. Be sure to turn automatic updates and community in Steam off, then patch again.

I just got this on steam too and I'm not very good at installing patches. Could someone explain it to me?

So I turned off automatic updates, installed the patch, and played for a few days. I tried to play again today, and Steam had turned auto updates back on and won't let me turn them off. Can I do anything other than just keeping Steam in offline mode?
