Des patch

Latest version: 0.9.9.2 / 13 July 2020
Supported games: W2
Language: C++

Download: Des patch 0.9.9.2

The Des patch is a result of Des's reverse engineering and extension of the S*natch patch for Worms 2. It provides all the functionality of the original, while adding a number of additional tweaks and improvements.

Due to it storing the patches as an easily modifiable script, StepS and Pac-Man modified it further to extend the available options or resolve issues which appeared through time.

This patch is no longer recommended for screen resolution adjustments, as it can cause desynchronisations in online games. The current recommendation is to use ReSolution.
