As an alternative to to downloading huge patches every time or using UberWilliam's Go PA patcher, I've written my own patcher in python. I've already mentioned it in other threads but I think it's better if I don't keep detracting people from other stuff going on there. Henceforth, I will only accept feedback, feature requests, and bug reports in this very thread - unless of course you prefer using GitHub for that. You can find the official repository at https://github.com/pa-pyrus/papatcher. For Arch Linux there is an AUR package as well, it's not maintained by me though.
