The patch status string is what updates the user when the patch window is shown. This text string will show the user the current percentage of the patch scan and patch download routines.
You can choose to disable or enable this in the Project Settings. You can also choose whether or not to show as a single line or multi line.
We recommend showing as a multi-line if possible.
You can simply choose to ditch the real-time status string and use your own image box inside your project settings background image should you choose to.
