Is that bad? (I mean, is hosting large files problematic?) I could upload it as a self-extracting 7zip archive, but then again, this might be confusing for people who use other OS's than Windows.

Another solution would be to put the RAR archive inside a zip archive. I used this to upload RAR files on a forum that did not accept RAR attachments.

A perfect solution (in my opinion) would be a DOS-based patch program akin to RTPatch that could be run in DOSBox, thus eliminating the OS compatibility issue, but I haven't been able to find any freeware patch generators that would be compatible with DOS. If you happen to know one, tell me
