The order and versions (only textures pack is newer) are like on the screenshot here: http://gravitac.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Installing_updates_and_modifications.

First is the core update: http://www.graviteam.com/AP-STAR/gtos_cu_581c1_eng.exe (or from GG).
Second, the patch: http://www.graviteam.com/AP-STAR/gtos_patch_march13d1_eng.gt2extension (or from GG).
Optionally, the polygons update: http://www.graviteam.com/AP-STAR/apos_upd_tar_rak_mar13_eng.gt2extension (or again from GG), this one needs a download manager, there are complaints about broken downloads.

How about 3rd party mods like the blood mod or flag mods?  Where in the order do they fit in?

Generally, look by the release date. If the patch was released later, then it should be higher in the list, and vice versa. Currently the only exception is the Hi-Res Texture Pack it should be above the patch. Mods go above the patch usually as they are released later. As of the flag and blood mods, I don't use them, but I think they should be above the patch in any case, they replace only some textures anyway.

Dear Krabb and other posters,
I spoke too soon.  I did the update/patch.When I loaded up the these new addons, the timer appeared etc but when finished they appeared as " blanks" in the Game updater ie a slot appeared with a number but no name. They appeared to run ok when I went into the game. Anyway I decided to reinstall the whole thing. By reinstall, I have installed the basic game v5.75(1379) into Program files (x86) on my win7 pc  - the default as selected by the installer. Over the years there have been many patches. Is all I now have to do is install core update 581c1, then the March13 patch and then get to work on the addons? I recall there being problems over the x86 drive in the past (my old install had been onto the C drive) or did Graviteam sort that out?
Regards
Nick

Yes, just the latest core update, then just the latest patch (mar13 (d1) currently) and then addons. The x86 problem was solved by new core update installer, but it is better to verify the install path anyway just in case.

"Blanks" mean that the core update was not installed correctly or is not the latest version.

I will run the game after each install to check i have done it correctly.
Even so, Graviteam makes one work hard for our money!
