Whenever I try to patch today, at a certain point in the patch I get either an animation.ipf error message OR an Error message with only "7" in it.
1. copy-paste the WHOLE back-up I have from a few weeks back.
2. copy-paste the animation.ipf from the back-up I used for #1.
3. re-start pc and do it over again.
4. 1 and 2 again from an external-memory back up from 3 months ago + re-patched all 3 months by editing the updater .txt files.
and 5. Reinstall and started again from the external-memory back up
