To get the latest source using Tortoise SVN (svn checkout for the console version), simply do these steps:

  • Make a new folder for the source (in this example, C:\OHRRPGCE)
  • Browse to that folder
  • Right click, and choose "SVN Checkout..." from the list

  • Right click on the folder (to make a patch for all changed files) or the appropriate files (for specific files) and choose Tortoise SVN->Create Patch
  • Choose a filename for the patch, and press "Save"
