  • Do I need to run the patcher each time I want to play with mods?
  • No, you only need to run the patcher after stardew has updated or reverted its exe file - the patch edits the exe in a permanent fashion
  • How do I uninstall the patch?
  • During the patching process, a copy of stardew valley with the `_original` suffix is created, simply delete the version without the suffix, and rename the suffixed version to no longer have this suffix
  • Is this patch safe to use?
  • Yes, the patch is 100% safe, and has no impact on your game unless you are using mods that require the patch
  • My anti-virus is complaining about this being a virus!
  • To do its job, the patcher needs to modify your stardew valley exe file, some anti-virus believe programs that can do this are virusses even when that is not the case.
  • I am a modder, and this patcher is missing a feature I need, how can I get it?
  • Simply report the issue on the patcher github, and I will aid you with a solution as soon as possible
