A "patch pack" is a completely separate version of the game. Not something you add-on, but something you install instead of (or next to) and use instead.

(Patches as such are only useful if you're a reasonably experience programmer, since integrating old patches into a moving target (the current master version) can be quite challenging. When you download and install a patch pack, someone else has already done the hard work.)

Thank you. The problem is that I dont find any file to start the game. Im tide of busstrips at 40 days. I want to play WITH!!!!! 24 hour clock. If I want to play the game there is posible to create bussroutes to multiple cities WITH!!!!! different need. Have I understand right the pacth is a game and they must be loadet seperatly. Then I could only play WITH!!!!! one of the pacthes, I cant play WITH!!!!! 24 hour clock and cargo disp on the same time? Lastes I find a versjon Android WITH!!!!! 24 hour clock

"patch" is a proposed change to the source code to add some feature. To use it you need to build the program yourself from its source code. It involves things like c++ compilers patch programs, and build tools. Not difficult if you want to learn it, but it's not a 3-click "install and run" process by a long shot, think several days of experimenting at least if you never did this.

"patchpack" is a variant of openttd with a lot of patches in it. It is a program that you can install and run, just like normal openttd. The JGR patchpack is used often currently, you can find its topic in the development forum. The usual place for starting is the first post of the thread, which is often used as an overview of what is available in the patchpack, details of how to get the version, and often a list of history.

There is also a mobile version of openttd. It should also have a topic in the development forum. No idea what it contains. Check the first post, as that is the most promising place to find relevant information.
Being a OpenTTD developer does not mean I know what I am doing.
Also, other OpenTTD developers may have different opinions.
