If someone want to play old version on win7, use this script and depotdownloader, then copy to installing folder, edit appmanifest.acf to cheat updater.

You are the real MVP!!! Can you tell me how to create/use that script? I have depot downloader, I’ve edited the appmanifest, but I am not sure how to create/use the script? Thanks so much!

The top code is batch, you need to put it as download.bat in depotdownloader folder, then edit and put your name. Using console to login and download. It will be download in the depotdownloader folder.
Then rename your new game folder. Copy old download file to old game folder. But not open game.
Find the appmanifest_933110.act ,backup and edit like me.
Special attention:

"appid"		"933110"  //same
"StateFlags"		"4" //not need to update
"LastUpdated"		"1634099906" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
"UpdateResult"		"0" //not need to update
"SizeOnDisk"		"46451641103" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
"buildid"		"7500522" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
"LastOwner"		"76561198354349477" //yours, can read in old file
"BytesToDownload"		"0" //not need to update
"BytesDownloaded"		"0"//not need to update
"BytesToStage"		"0"//not need to update
"BytesStaged"		"0"//not need to update
"AutoUpdateBehavior"		"0"//not need to update
"AllowOtherDownloadsWhileRunning"		"0"//not need to update
"ScheduledAutoUpdate"		"0"//not need to update
"InstalledDepots"
	{
		"933111"
		{
			"manifest"		"4771437915371768058" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
			"size"		"45975794377" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
		}
		"933113"
		{
			"manifest"		"8217306787633308756" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
			"size"		"475846726" //last version, i find it in steamdb.info
		}
	}

I think it will need edited again when has update new version. I will find ways to solve it.

I really appreciate you spending your time and helping with this. I’ve spent the little free time I have over the last couple days trying to get it to work. I’ve been able to get the correct files from steambd.info and edit appmanifest_933110.acf, but it still won’t start. This is what it shows in the console:

GameAction [AppID 933110, ActionID 13] : LaunchApp changed task to SynchronizingCloud with “”
GameAction [AppID 933110, ActionID 13] : LaunchApp changed task to SiteLicenseSeatCheckout with “”

Any ideas?

hi cookthread881, could you share your appmanifest? And make sure you have download all game?
I have writen a detailed description on my github: HOW_TO_PLAT_OLD_VERSION_STEAM_GAME_WITHOUT_AUTOUPDATE/README_EN.md at main · CHN-STUDENT/HOW_TO_PLAT_OLD_VERSION_STEAM_GAME_WITHOUT_AUTOUPDATE · GitHub

Thank you, that is a big help and I learned a lot! However, I’ve been trying to download the 8640815080218763479 manifest through depot downloader and unfortunately it’s not working; it says manifest not available. I can download 4771437915371768058 just fine through the same method. Did they remove the old manifest for download?
