You'll be prompted to replace the existing files. Choose "Yes to all" to install the patch. Note that the patch will not affect any crucial or irreplaceable files (such as save games). If you're worried about being able to uninstall the patch, then you may want to create a backup of the Advent Rising directory beforehand.


If you have the Steam version, the patch can be uninstalled by validating the game cache from the game's Properties window. Otherwise, you must restore from a backup of your directory, or reinstall Advent Rising.
