Can someone post a minimal set of patches and the order in which to install them? Per game? This stuff is pretty confusing.

— Original (not modificated) source Gothic.exe, ver. (1.08k), that will be renamed from Gothic_backup.exe to Gothic_snowball.exe during SystemPack installation (only for Russian version "GOTHIC1" by 1C/Snowball Interactive);
— GothicMod.exe patched with the GothicFps-108 fix by NicoDE.
— Install and start all applications with admin rights;
— If possible, install the Pack on “clear” version of the game (without other mods or patches installed on it);
— If there was other version of "SystemPack", remove it with deinstallator.
— Delete all packs/patches and other fixes (if were installed), which were to fix bugs that are fixed by this System Pack. We do not guarantee proper work – the Compatibility has not been tested.
— Update your audio and video drivers to latest version.
