    Now it's time to generate pattern files with script on FLARE github. This one works up to version 7.3 including and doesn't work on 7.4+ because of changes in API calls of IDA. I updated it for IDA 7.5(just renamed a bunch of API calls to different names according to this article by hexrays for porting scripts to newer versions of IDA), but I run into the same problems on 7.2 with the original script.
